Event where a person is greeted by a stranger, misinterprets whatever that stranger says as threatening, and decides they are being robbed. Usually occurring at night in a deserted public setting.
'Mugger': "Hi! Do you know what time it is? By the way, that's a really nice watch..."
'Victim': "Do you want my watch!?"
'Mugger': "Well, I suppose...I wouldn't refuse."
'Victim': "Just take it!" (runs off)

Accidental muggings comprise one-half of one percent of all reported muggings in the contiguous United States.
