A Plethera of Thieves

No one believes me here at work when I say this area is getting worse.

Yet another thief the other day. It makes me wonder how much people DO steal and we only catch the idiots that aren't smart enough to hide it.

This one walked in and went over to the energy drinks right away. He was standing there for awhile and doing the usual glancing-up-at-the-counter-to-see-if-anyone-is-watching stare. Naturally I was watching on the monitor. Sometimes the monitor doesn't show things clearly, though. I thought I saw him shove something down his pants but I wasn't sure.

While I was debating on what to do, he walked out of the store.

Lucky for me he was in a car with three other guys and lucky for me the reason they had pulled into the parking lot in the first place was because they saw a cute girl pumping gas and probably wanted to harass her. While she was inside paying, they were all waiting for her to come back out which gave me time to look up the video and see that yes, indeed, he had shoved a Monster energy drink down his pants. Asshole.

So I go outside and walk up to their car. These four guys looked like complete trash. I needed to take a shower just from looking at them. The one that stole was sitting in the back seat.

I knocked on his window. "You owe me $4."

"For what?" he yelled through the closed window.

"The drink you stole. Either that or I can call the cops."

He started shuffling around inside his pants. It honestly looked like he was masturbating. I wouldn't have been surprised if he was, with the kind of people we've been getting around here.

After a few seconds he produced the Monster energy drink and passed it to the driver to hand to me.

I backed away. "I don't want it, that's been in your pants. Who knows what kind of diseases are on it now." His friends started snickering.

"Well I don't have any money for it," he yelled.

"That's fine, I'll call the cops," I said as I started to walk away.

"Wait!" he yelled. I walked back over and the four guys all started ruffling around in their pants, on the floor, in the glove compartment and in the middle console. Group orgy.

After about a minute they all pooled their various bills and change together and dumped all of it into my outstretched hand.

"Don't ever come in here anymore or I'll call the police and post your pictures at the register," I said as I walked away.

Chasing after $4 energy drinks, come on. At least steal milk and bread. I won't come after you then.

Quitting Employees

My coworkers seem to be dropping like flies lately.

We just had two people quit and another one has walking pneumonia. As for the two that quit, neither of them gave their two weeks notice. I understand that it's a gas station and we see a lot of turnover, but still. Act like a fucking adult and give us time to find someone else to replace your lazy ass. One of them, who is about 45 years old, said she couldn't live off of what she was making at our store. Yet, that didn't seem to bother her when she was told what she was going to start at. Maybe it's the fact that she buys two cases of beer every night as well as a carton of cigarettes every two days. Could that be why she can't afford to live off of what she makes?

We figure that she's a job hopper, and just goes from job to job because she gets bored. Nice example to set for her kids.

The other one that quit was the one that had her car stolen in our parking lot about a month ago. She said that she had a family emergency and couldn't work for us anymore. This one was about to get fired anyways because she had been doing absolutely nothing for the past few weeks.

I think she was wanting us to fire her so she didn't have to quit.

I'll never understand why people do this. I have seen it so many times over the years. People will just stop working once they show up for their shifts. It's always obvious that they are about to quit. Why not just quit and get it over with? It's not like these assholes give two weeks notice, they just stop doing anything for two weeks and finally call a few minutes before their shift and quit.

All I hear all the time are people bitching about how they need more hours because they need the money. The ones that complain the loudest about this are the ones that are always the first to go once we give them the hours they want.

I don't know, I'm just sick of people again I guess.

And now that the holidays are coming up, customers are going to be shitfaces to us too. Happy holidays to me!
