Riddle #8: A problem

Here's my latest riddle. I think it will be an easy one:

A man has a problem. He goes into a store and asks for a drink of water. The woman behind the counter points a gun at him. "Thank you. You've solved my problem," he tells her and walks out. What was his problem?

The correct answer has been guessed. Please see the comments section for the answer.
