DIBB Villa Reviews: 2
We were in Walmart car park on the 192, I was in the car and dh was taking the trolley back. A man with a sleeping child in a pushchair ( it was 10pm) approached dh and asked if we were British, and could we take him to a nearby motel. His story was that his wife was at work, and if he gave us a lift to a motel, he would pay us $20 for petrol. DH politely said no, I was the gullible one, feeling sorry for the child! DH explained that he could have pulled a knife and robbed us once in the car. We've also been asked for money for parking near old town by an old ex army guy many years ago. DH paid his $20 as we didn't know any beter then.

I do everything I ever can to avoid unhappiness or confrontation I think that "i am not going to give you any money" is the best way of doing this mate

happens every time we go, Walmart ,Publix , restaurant car parks. Same stories as above. Always watch your back when getting into your car and a firm NO! usually does it but on a few occasions I've had to use 2 words...

In 1990 we stayed in a hotel across the road from Disneyland, Anaheim and walked into the park each day. Just in front of the sign a man sat holding a placard "Ex Disney employee will work for a decent wage" 😂😂😂

Have been approached several times and more often than not by females saying they have been abused and can we give them cash for a bus to a relative - offer to give them a lift as you have no cash and they move on. Have never given over any cash as hardened by being accosted frequently in London.
