Default I am pretty sure I almost just got mugged

It was pretty scary. I was walking back from the YMCA after my training alone and this sweaty shady looking guy came and asked me for change for the bus, and I said "I dont have anything." Then he asked me again and I was like "sorry.. all I have with me is my gym clothes. I dont have anything". Except I had my blackberry in my hand, which I know is dumb and I never usually take it with me. So the guy goes the other way and I start walking the opposite way, well I see him turn around and he started advancing on me very quickly. I was like terrified and I didnt even know what to do.
I got lucky though because this big guy with a dog came around the corner and started walking towards me so I practicly ran up to him an asked him about his dog blah blah. The shady guy turned around and started going the other way. The big guy said "was he bothering you?" and I said he was asking me for change and stuff. He then said exactly what I was thinking which was "I am glad I came around the corner when I did because he was making a move on you".
I haven't had any trouble since our company moved downtown, but today scared me shitless. So.. since I am not giving up my training at the Y.. in that situation should you fight or give him your shit run? He seemed to be in decent shape and young so I am not sure I could have out ran him.

When they ask for change I say fukc off crack head I'm trying to keep food on my plate.

you want the least mount of paper work and bullshit and chance of law suites? get the pepper spray. not the foam!! get the real deal pepper spray liquid shit should shoot about 10-20' with out issue. problem with foam is it doesnt shoot far and you end up getting it on yourself as well so it does no good in the big picture. better yet get the shit if they still make it with dye in it.. that way you can hit him up with it run away to a safe place and call the cops.. aint hard to find the dumb ass in tears stained in red!!!

the next time it will go like this;

hey you got any change for the bus?

nope all i have is this pepper spray if you dont immediately get away from me!!
(then pull it out and point it at him, if he keeps steppin dont flinch just squeeze and spray until your out)
