He Has Snow Business Taking Those Drinks

, , , , | Right | November 16, 2020

It is early in the morning, around 5:45 or 6:00 am in January, and it has just snowed a few inches outside.

I am opening and a “customer” goes straight to one of the drink coolers in the front of the store out of the view of me and the clerk I am standing next to, but we can see him in the reflection of the freezer glass window behind him, and he is obviously shoving drinks into his jacket.

After he has a substantial amount tucked into his jacket, he closes the door and turns to make a break for the door. He gets about two strides in before he falls and face-plants into the tile floor, and all of the drinks spill out of his jacket or explode.

We immediately run over to help him and we quickly collect all the drinks before he can get them. We help him up and the clerk says:

Clerk: “Maybe you should stay so we can get you an ambulance and the police for your head; that looks bad.”

He looks at both of us and says, rather frantically:

Customer: “No, thanks!”

He bolted out the door. He’s not come back since.
