I was not going to share this story

I got up early this morning and was running some errands. I stopped at the market to pick up a few things and I was in a rush so I just sat the bags on the floor of the front seat. I went to start my car and the key would not work. I called USSA road side assistance and they told me it would be 30 -45 minutes for a tow truck.

While I waited I sat in the truck chatting on the phone. 15 minutes or so went by and a man came up and tapped on the window. I held up my finger to let him know I would be a minute but he impatiently tapped again.I looked around and did not see the tow truck. Since the car would not start I had to open the door to ask him what he wanted.

He said, “I thought I would ask you what you were doing in my truck before I called the cops.”
