Outside Vesuvios yesterday evening... 07:47 - Oct 18 with 436 viewssidekick_jack

Not sure if any of you are in that area (opposite the Liberty). But last night me and the missus were parked up outside Vesuvios and heading toward the restaurant when a kid of about 7/8 approached me with a sheet of paper, asking for a pen. It looked like a sponsorship form of some kind. I apologised and explained I didn’t have one, and asked what it was for. At that point, he looked over his shoulder at the two slightly older kids that were cautiously approaching us (10/11 ish) who, after a rather strange few seconds of intense staring, asked the same half hearted question about a pen. I repeated that I didn’t have one and asked if they were alright. No response and they went to ask the missus who was sorting something in the car. I said she also did not have a pen, so they turned and headed towards a parked car to presumably ask the person inside the same question.

Now, maybe I’m being paranoid, but something felt off about the whole thing. The way they approached us was alarming, body language etc I don’t like to assume too much but their clothing was worn and I think they may have been gypsies of some sort. I’m basically just wondering if any of you have witnessed this recently? Strange interaction to say the least.

Perhaps they thought you were Mickey Douglas and Catherine Zeta, and wanted your autographs.

Call me cynical but it was probably a fake sponsorship form, they'd have you signed up and be asking for the cash upfront because, when would they see you again.

Of course if you went in the restaurant they might also believe your house was empty and may have your address on their form!

Just my opinion, but WTF do I know anyway?

Yeah that sounds likely. I mean, why would you have a sponsorship form but no pen and be going around the street asking anyone and everyone? Definitely had my spider-sense tingling...

There's been a scam like this going on in Europe and particularly Paris for years.You sign a fake sponsorship form or whatever it is and then they demand cash from you.

Who the hell uses pen and paper these days anyway?

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

I’d much rather fight a guy who is armed with a pen.
