Dear PoPville – Wha’ts the story with Guys offering rides outside Giant in Columbia Heights?

Dear PoPville,

Twice now I have seen men who stand in front of the doors to the Giant in Columbia Heights who offer rides to people with lots of groceries. No ID, no signs, no marked cars or taxis — nothing to make them look official. They approached me about a week ago when I had a number of bags, and I saw them again yesterday approach someone else. They’re not aggressive in anyway, but without any taxis in view it reminds me of drivers we’re warned against at airports.
