About a year ago, I was pumping gas at a self service when two kids on bicycles began meandering around the pumps. The older kid suddenly pulled up to me and asked if I had change for a dollar. As assertively as I could, I turned and faced him head on with an emphatic "no". When they moved on, I discretely took my j-frame from the glove box and slipped it into my pocket(where it should have been in the first place). Less than a week later, there was a small item in the paper about another senior citizen (I'm 69) who was robbed by an armed youth on a bicycle while gassing up her car. What I took away from this was to always be alert, be aware, and know that threats can arise anywhere and from any age group.
