Accosted, I was!

Whilst waiting for my public transport of choice this evening I was accosted by a tall dark attractive female stranger who first offered to give me a lift wherever I was heading, in English, I might add, and then she asked me which way I was going.  This, very tall, lady of African extraction, I would guess, was quite insistent, though not aggressive.  Being a sensible, sometimes, sort of guy, I politely declined her kind offer and was somewhat relieved to see my bus coming round the corner.  I deftly hopped on and away.  The whole, very minor, incident left me rather bemused.
