I don't think this story sounds plausible.

I was robbed in the cinnaminson wawa parking lot a few years back. My assailant claimed to have a gun but when I called him out on it he proved me right. I was able to fight him off until the cops came. It's definitely plausible. Wrong place, wrong time.

What seems implausible about it?
Sean McDonough August 24, 2012 at 07:38 PM
But c'mon walking on 90? And then walk away??? Sounds fishy.

Sounds like they were both on Forklanding, not 90.
