  1. Stopped there to spend the night in my vehicle. Asked permission to park outside out of the way of incoming vehicles, and was told by a very nice man that it would be fine to stay overnite. Left about 6:15 AM the next morning after spending approx 10 dollars there. I came back at 10 AM to buy coffee and the very same man said owner complained and said police would be called, which i wasnt planning on staying the day there anyway. He said it was $20 a night to park there and he wanted the cash right then. I had a small coffee I was purchasing and I said I only had $9, which he took. He asked when I was leaving and I said in 2 minutes. He threatened to call the police if i stayed longer. I was going to buy gas also but I left without purchasing. There are no posted signs about parking. I am a retired senior female so I posed no threat to anyone. The night clerk is very nice and did not mention parking either. She did show me a short video on her phone which she put away when customers walked in. It was a religious video. I wonder if one of the customers in the store complained or if I was just scammed. I dont believe the store is America owned. Any thoughts on this anyone?
