A man, armed with only a 2x4, held up a gas station. He demanded money from the attendant, but the article doesn't say whether he got it or not. I'm hoping that the attendant wasn't threatened enough to give in. Sure, being smacked by a 2x4 will ruin your day, but it's not as bad as, oh, I don't know, the prospect of being shot by robbers who take their craft more seriously.
I've been blessed and have never had to work retail, but for those of you who have: A man walks in holding a 2x4 and demands cash money. How seriously do you take him? Do you keep him talking long enough to get some cops to show up? Laugh at him? Give in to his demands? Throw lit matches at his poorly chosen weapon?
Was he that desperate for money, or is he a pacifist robber? Is he the only man in Fayette County that doesn't own a gun?
I have so many unanswered questions.
