Day one of the Schedule from Below

Good morning everyone.. yikes.

I stopped by the gas station on the corner this morning to grab a bottle of pop to help me stay awake today. When I got up to the counter, there was some kid being belligerent to the old guy behind the counter. It was kind of scary.. he kept saying he was drunk, and was apologizing to the guy for something, then when the guy behind the counter turned around, the kid grabbed a Snickers and shoved it in his pocket. I was scared that he would pull a gun or something out of his other pocket and start waving it around.. but he didn't.. he just kept calling "Chuck" an a$$, and finally stormed out the door. I'm sure he felt like he deserved that candy bar for having to put up with everything.. sigh.

After he left, I actually said to "Chuck".. "kids these days". I can't believe I said that. It's true though.. he said he was 19, but he was acting like a 5-year-old throwing a temper tantrum. What a difference 11 years can make, I guess. Anyway, I'd better get back to work.. hope y'all have a good morning!

Good luck with the schedule from down below and I'm glad that kid didn't do anything worse than steal a candy bar. It's pretty scary but you just never know what people are going to do anymore.

Kids these days... isn't it sad that we can get scared going into a convenient store???

I've dealt with these types all my law enforcement career. I would have called him a thief to his face and tell him to put the candy bar back where he found it. I may be old, but I don't fight fair. Just saying. Have a great day. :)
