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.
