Hero of the Week

Posted by sanityinjection on November 6, 2008

Sanity Injection’s Hero of the Week is an unnamed, 30-year-old convenience store clerk in Fort Worth Texas. From the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

Fort Worth police are looking for a suspect after a holdup man ran up against an uncooperative convenience store clerk in an overnight robbery try. Police spokesman Lt. Paul Henderson said the man walked into a 7-Eleven in west Fort Worth about 3:20 a.m. Monday and demanded the cash from the clerk’s register.

According to Henderson, the clerk answered, “No. Either shoot me or leave my store.”

Henderson said the man cursed at the 30-year-old clerk and left on foot. Detectives are checking the store’s security cameras for images of the suspect.

I’m not sure this approach is going to be endorsed any time soon by the National Retail Association, but talk about refusing to be a victim!

    That’s the kind of clerk I’d like to hire for my business! Well done, good and faithful servant.

    I hope they catch the nincompoop who thought that he could empty a cash register simply by asking rudely.

    Now if only that would work for the government: “Either shoot us or stop using our money to fund AIG spa treatments.”
