i was coming out of the gas station purchasing a large brain freeze and this kid that had to be no more then eleventeen and with a ciggerrette in his ear rode up to me and said

excuse me sir can you help me out and go to the store for me

i said no but i will watch your bike while you go

he said no its not that i need a pack of newport box 100'* for my dad

i said sorry kid but if i buy you these cigerrettes then i might aswell go home and give my 4 yr old daughter a cigar.

he laughed and said no they are for my mom i told you she is home sick and cant come out.

so i then said where do you live i will go and buy them and take them to her so i dont get in any trouble for giving them to you.

he then said no thanks i did'nt think you were a nice guy anyway and then he drove off on his bike......

man o man i went home and almost peed myself telling this to my wife......

I wonder if you could have said "sure", then went inside, told the clerk to call the cops, wait for the cops to show, then had them take him home to his parents and explain why. Not sure if it would work, but it'* a thought. You'd probably have to have him hand you cash in advance. That way the process was initiated.

i had someone bring me his alternator to test it.

i said "i cant"

he says "why?"

i said, "because thats ur ac compressor."

no joke. i used to deal with the public. it was a nightmare.

but this was probably the worst case of " sir, put down the tools, step away and take it in"

I went in for an oil change one day and was standing by the front of the car and the kid who came out to get the info asked "Is that a Grand Am?????"

All the while looking at the banner that was across the windshield
