You forgot the apostrophe on "customers," subby.

Good thing that real clerk had a gun. If it'd happened in Washington DC or NYC, he might've been dead.
 
2008-05-28 09:54:10 AM
well at least he satisfied the customers.

Helping customers should have been the tip-off that something was amiss.
 
2008-05-28 09:56:21 AM
It was a brilliant plan in its simplicity, but the execution was terrible.

Proper method should have been as follows:

1. "Hi, I'm the new guy and you're supposed to train me".
2. Get trained.
3. Send real clerk on a break.
4. Take cash and leave.

It was not known whether he had been assigned an attorney.


I don't think that's going to help much at this point.

I did something similar, once.

Back in college, the guy I liked worked at the computer labs as a senior lab assistant and I worked in the clubs/orgs building. He spent his time on the clock playing online games (gunbound, maplestory, starcraft) and I wanted to spend more time with him AND play videogames. He had a green uniform shirt with a black nametag, I had a red one with a platinum nametag.

So whenever I visited him, I would steal one of the spare uniform shirts. Eventually I spent so much time there, people thought I worked there. The boss would give me things to do. I would help students and teachers. In fact, since I had a platinum nametag no one ever bothered to read, most people thought I was a manager.

I would send people home early and let them go get dinner at the dining hall, cover shifts, come in on Saturdays. I just showed up, took a shirt, and pretended it was my job. My coworkers were surprised when I told them I didn't actually work there. No one ever told me to leave, though.

Even now, four years later, I STILL get invited to the employee bbq by the boss, every year.

As for that guy I liked? That's him in my profile :)

Helping customers? At a 7-11? That should have been the first clue right there.

Agrees. Thank you, come again!
 
2008-05-28 10:25:35 AM
Hell, as long as we're throwing apostrophes on verbs, subby also forgot "convince's."

/Are you guys detecting the sarcasm yet? C'mon...
 
2008-05-28 10:26:26 AM
...and why not "rob's" while we're at it?
 
2008-05-28 10:27:10 AM
megarobotsloot: sooo was he planning to work there all day to maximize the amount of cash in the drawer? why not just rob it at the end of the day.

Because at 7-11 they empty the cash drawer into a a safe constantly. There is never more than $50 in the register.

/yes, I worked at Sev's

The Grinch: Good thing that real clerk had a gun. If it'd happened in Washington DC or NYC, he might've been dead.

The way I understand it, if the clerk has a gun, the robbers are far more likely just to shoot him without preamble. Much better to have a guy in the back with a shotgun, then to try to have the guy up front armed.
 
2008-05-28 11:03:00 AM
They should have realized he wasnt a real 7-11 employee when he started helping customers.
 
2008-05-28 11:03:45 AM
Shame the real clerk will be fired for fighting back, its the way of the 7-11. We are supposed to not look them in the eye, give whatever we want, and call cops after they leave. We have a little secret silent alarm we are supposed to keep in our pockets at all times, but no one ever did.

It's a good plan, I worked with someone new like once a week, so I would believe anyone who showed up during my shift (11 pm til 7 am) and told me they were new, no manager those hours usually so no one to tell me different)

But yeah robbing a 7-11 is dumb, as someone mentioned above, you do safe drops for any big bills (its been awhile since I worked there but I think its immediatly for bills 50 and above, but could be 20) and although there is only one camera usually (right at the sale registers) they are good cameras and you will most likely be easily identifiable. And the best part, a cop will walk in there atleast once an hour, during sometimes there wont be a second a cop isnt in there. We gave them free coffee and doughnuts and the like so they would always stop by.

/so happy to no longer work at 7-11

If you look and act like you belong very few people will question you. A bit of human nature that drives security people insane. When I worked as a security guard the dispatcher sent me to the wrong bank and not one of the cleaning crew ever questioned my right to be there. In spite of the fact they weren't expecting a guard they let me right in.

Well, being that I've worked for 7-11 I can attest to the cash practices and get a kick out of this...

If it's like any other 7-11, the cashier is drilled and trained and watched to insure they are only keeping a small amount of money in the drawer via a drop safe. There are ways to get extra 20's from the safe every few minutes, but only 2 or 4, so you can make change for a 100. In fact, that is usually one of the first things you get trained on, so he might have been able to pull some out if he was smart, but i suspect he was just brazen and walked out with less than a hundred bux. I don't think he thought his cunning plan through, besides, every 7-11 has a pretty good camera system too...
