    Yes, so uhmm someone asked that people share this on facebook. I thought some of you might find it "interesting" :party::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::party2:



    A dream turns to a nightmare,PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEASE,pass this on to all friends,after a whole day driving around the mountain roads on the C25 near Gerona we finally stopped and looked for a place to stopover,we couldnt find anything and as it was getting late and dark we went to a motorway services to sleep.We parked in a very well lit area at the front of the restaurant,lots of lorries and drivers around and the place open 24 hrs.We locked the cab doors from the inside,the side door being double locked as well and went to sleep.Lots of lorry engine noises and my snoring made my wife move to the side bench/bed to rest,we woke up around 8am my wife complaining of feeling drunk and really tired,then realised her bag,my shorts and her trainers were missing.The drivers door lock had been popped open,and the police think a MACE spray was used on my wife.She is very traumatised and wanted out of Spain in a hurry,at the Police station we met a Dutch MH owner who had been attacked the same night by 2 men who forced the door of his Hymer garage,the blatantly smashed a side window as he screamed at them ,grabbing his wifes bag and I.T. tablet,they are both ok ,shocked but continuing their holiday.We believed we were in a safe place ,lots of people and well lit,IT DIDNT STOP THEM !!!!!.We have returned home and i'm sure its the end of our European Adventure,PLEASE make sure you are SAFE,dont stop on these service areas.

    The strangest part of this story is that there was no mention of €2000 and an ipad. If, by chance, you see someone wearing mens shorts, ladies trainers and carrying a handbag and can of mace, please contact Señor Rozzero of the Spanish police on nueve nueve nueve!

    Not going to go into details as to why but I have been hit with police CS spray (similar to MACE). If you get hit by mace spray you are certainly not going to sleep through it, your eyes will stream and sting, your nose will run. Basically it feels like you've been hit in the face with a hot iron!
    Best description I have ever heard, it turns you into a blubbering, bubbling snot monster! I also call fake! :D

    To be serious for a minute ... apart from the 'hint' at gassing the rest of the report could be true and that is something I would not wish on anyone, so the warning should be heeded regarding NOT using motorway aires.

    Even if it's true the couple show a shocking lack of stiff upper lip. Fancy returning home after such a minor mishap? Hrrmph. Country going to the dogs. :)

    True.. but on what planet did a policeman say they had been gassed or attacked by mace. Be much easier to have sympathy of they weren't clearly inventing at least one element of their story.

    On the other hand make sure you share it on Facebook.. the more people are put off of Europe the more space there is for us..

    Getting robbed on an Aire De Services is not fiction.

    I was robbed on an Aire De services near Millau on the A75 a few years ago, I hadn't heard of gassing at the time, so couldn't use it as an excuse.

    What I can tell you is that it isn't funny.
