So one of my employees almost got locked up.

Neat.

And you failed.

EDIT: This was a test.

I think I love this girl. If she shows you she's got the responsibility to handle it and she's got wireless available, you could invite her to hook up with the multi-player server here. We're going to do a world reset with the next release, so she'll have a clean slate to start with.

That's not a good idea. Keep employees out of one's private life.

Sweet. Send her my way. I love me some Bauhaus and The Damned! The Damned were considered more punk than anything else in the early days.

As long as Paleo isn't the one playing Minecraft with her, everyone wins?

First thread with that many pages I read fully in a long time. Tagged.

Instead of a TV show, how about making this a Fallout, GTA or whatever mod?

Goth girls are hot too.

Hmm. I don't think this is going to discourage anyone.

Hmm. Looks like someone set fire to the restaurant across the street from me and one of my cashiers just phoned in to tell me that she can't come to work until the cops leave her living room. Apparently, the retards next door got into an argument and one of them shot at the other with a shotgun. Thankfully, he had terrible aim and completely missed the other guy. Unfortunately, the pellets went straight through the wall and took out her television.

FFUUUCCKKK. Looks like I'm not headed to the gym tonight.

Breaking Gas, Episode 26: Plasma, Rifled.

I've been following this thread from the beginning and even with all of the previous stories I'm still constantly shocked. WOW.

This thread needs more base images for photoshops.

Keep the gas nice and wet or it might catch on fire. And maybe the fire trucks will gas up with you after they're done?

Do you mean underlying images, or images of a coarse nature?

In fact, never mind, it doesn't change me agreeing with you.

This job is making me think there isn't enough liquor in the world.

Open a liquor store. It won't solve things, but it'll be a start.

You sir make me smile, from your ever clever comics included with packages too your picking up on my subtle jokes.

MD is probably another stupid ABC state, like most of the southern ones. So the state or counties run all the liquor stores. >_<

Actually, no.

I was seriously considering opening a liquor store. In fact we looked at a number of them before deciding on the gas station.

How about a drive through liquor store and gas station?

The problem is that liquor stores are just about everywhere now. And contrary to popular belief, it is possible to lose money running a liquor store. I know of three that have gone out of business within a 10 mile radius from my house within the last six months.

Much like just about any business, if you aren't paying attention or don't know what you're doing, you're pretty much at the mercy of the vast array of folks who are trying to cheat you or steal from you. Your employees and vendors steal from you. Your service providers cheat you. And every swinging dick that comes through the door is trying to run some con on you. And much like a Texas Hold'em table, if you don't know who the sucker is.... it's you.

We considered a lot of different businesses and figured that a gas station was a lot more straight forward than most. If you keep the cashiers under surveillance and monitor the surveillance, if you count every shipment of merchandise and take regular inventory, and if you shop your service contracts aggressively, you only have to worry about corporate boning you up the pooper with a flaming fire hose (which they do with regularity btw).

People will still come in for gas irrespective of the economy. Folks will always buy cigarettes. And there is the occasional buck to be made in candy bars, soda pop, phone cards to Latin American countries, sex pills of dubious efficacy, and condoms of flattering size.

Wow. I think I just wrote the dust jacket to my book.

Episode 35: Dust Jacket (special performance by Shallow Gravy)

Well, I wish I had seen this thread earlier. I'm certainly keeping an eye on this one... interesting stuff abound.

Keep a diary, Paleocon. You might be able to get wordmythe to make a book out of it in five years.

Fixed for accuracy

Anyway. I stuck around running the register until the girl arrived. That was right around 10pm. She was talking on the cell phone when she got out of the car, but ended her conversation and hung up. She had an armful of packages, so I went for the door to help her. She was wearing a skirt and didn't have any pockets to put her phone in, so instead, she just rested it right on top of her boobs. Not between. On top of. And no, it didn't slip off.

She just casually walked in like she does this all the time, dropped off her stuff in the booth and started going into the details of how her apartment was full of cops, that she needs a new tv, and how she needs the neighbors to move out.... all the while there is a massive Android phone resting on her right boob.

I'm trying hard not to stare or make like this is an odd thing, but it is simply impossible to listen to a word she's saying while this cell phone is jiggling up and down.

Finally, I just say "Great. Now get to work. I'm off to the gym.".

This morning, the morning shift girl said something about the night girl thinking I was kind of mean.
