    Hey. Im 16 yeard old student of high school. October 30th me and my 4 buddies driving a car and looking for any halloween jams ( big house open door party ) so we found one but we got rejected beacuse it was over. So we decieded to steal some pumpkins. We had some fun stuff going on. So when they guy was dropping my friend off on a street i got off too , to get on a bus and go home. That was around 10: 10 pm , i got to the bus stop and i see those 5 black guys in a bus shelter.

    They started waving at me trying to get me attention to go there and have a talk. I was talkin to my parents on a phone while they were waving. When i finished a talk i decided to go and see whats up. ( im white ). they asked me if i know any jams that are going on. We had a little convo .

    Then a taller guy who seemed older ( around 18 ) asked me where am i goin
    i replied home , then they asked me if i have money , about my slefphone and stuff. I started kreeping out, i got outside and called my friend who just dropped off my friend i told him to get here and pick me up cuz they are tryin to mug and stuff. My friends are big like big massive body and muscles on. tough guys around my age. WHen they got there they got out of the car. We had a talk on. Black guys just left.

    Yeah, it does sound like at least a couple of them were interested in your possessions. It's certainly risky to approach a group of guys unknown to you late at night, especially when you're alone and have valuables on you. Lesson for next time, I guess.

    Yeah i know it. But when i was crossing the road they were pointing fingers at me and having a talk. They would come to me anyways or i would get on a bus with them. I think i made a pretty good decistion about that.

    So you feel they almost mugged you because they asked if you had money and about your cellphone? If they wanted to mug you they had plenty of time before your friend came back for you.

    I also find this to be a weird thread to create as your first post here at Mac Rumors.

    Wait wait wait, are saying that you got into a car with an unknown group of people? Are you nuts? Never, EVER get into an unknown vehicle with an unknown group of people. NEVER!

    And this is a pretty gigantic detail to the story that you need to say explicitly in your description of the events.

    One time, I almost got stabbed by a white guy. He was white, but he may as well have been black. It certainly would have been more convenient for me. How else am I supposed to tell good people apart from the bad?

    Black people are supposed to roll me for $100 as I walk down the street, while white guys are only supposed to rob me slowly of all my savings, and only while wearing a nice suit and working on Wall St. A white guy physically attacking me? That's messed up. Who do I trust now!!?

    I think he joined the group of unknown people in a bus shelter. And when his friends came he went outside the bus shelter?

    Where were these inside bus shelters when I was commuting in winter in NYC?

    This story doesn't jive as a mugging or an "almost mugging" at that. I've been robbed at gunpoint a couple times before received a fair share of beat downs even got stuck in the knee with a knife, those guys sound more like they were just ****ing with you.

    Next time don't have your friends do something stupid like drop you off in the middle of nowhere. And why in the hell would you walk up to a bunch of strangers?

    The cops would think you were on dope or attempting to buy if it had gone badly, sounds like you are holding something back or practicing a convincing story to cover for something here (even to convince yourself perhaps). Whatever those guys were up to was probably none of your business if you are as innocent as you claim. Nothing in that story really adds up.

    You really need to start learning about the 'real' world. The best way to gain a better understanding of what you're up against is to watch more movies, particularly those starring Ice Cube in the 1990s.

    Avoid comedies like Sister Act, which are so far removed from reality that they only serve to cloud your judgement by causing you to let your guard down. Never let your guard down. That Whoopie Goldberg has no idea. Trust me.

    Well I didn't get cose to being mugged but, I was sitting on a bench downtown talking on a cell and this guy around my age intentionally sits by me asking how I am doing and what's up. I said, "dude, I am on the phone here what you want?" and he got up and left

    The nerve man!

    Probably all intimidating in my motorcycle jacket and a beanie haha

    I think... I think... Abstract is calling upon his dark sense of humour here... Don't take him too seriously.

    I almost got mugged in New Zealand. I was in the town of Nelson and had a backpack and tripod attached to the backpack and two dudes started asking me what was in my bag and telling me to show them or they were going to rip it off of me. Me, not knowing NZ laws hardly wanted in a scuffle in a foreign country (especially while I was on R and R from my job since if Id lose my job if I got into trouble abroad) so I kept walking. They started to follow so I unclipped my tripod which would have leveled them both had I started swinging it. I made it to my hotel parking lot and they turned and left.

    The thing was I knew they were being shady too when I saw them on the street. I should have went the other way but I figured I was just being paranoid and kept walking. They had a very large umbrella that had a thick metal shaft (almost like it wasn't part of the umbrella) and it was on a sunny day and they were looking around all nervous.

    I believe Abstract was being sarcastic and mocking the OP, not a statement of belief. As the OP found it important to point out that he is white and they were black.

    I would avoid any group of guys I don't know calling me over to their side of the street for no apparent reason. Though night time would make me even more apprehensive.

    I know someone will point out that a group of women can be just as dangerous. Though true, not many guys could avoid a group of women calling them over. Sort of like a moth to a flame, a dog after a bouncy ball or a cat to tuna:rolleyes:.
