EvilEgg: He got a free bag of ice out of it.
abhorrent1: Not a prank. Just someone being a douche

Sometimes it's much, much, MUCH better to simply let an idiot get his way and give him a free pass than confront him and fight it out for 15 minutes... especially considering that while you're dealing with the moron, other customers are not getting served, and some walk out, costing you MUCH more than one puny bag of ice./Been working retail 15 years.
Braggi: "Hello Police. We have a guy here acting real weird and crazy. You might want to take him in for an evaluation."Best prank reply.
Frozboz: I can guarantee that "prankster" has never had to work a crappy convenience store job. And it's not a prank. It's just a douche with a bag of water, which is kinda like a douche..
Kibbler: I used to work in a convenience store, and not only that, third shift. The problem wasn't the dumb customers. Oh, there were dumb customers, make no mistake about that. The problem was the drunk customers. As in, so drunk that they weren't really aware of where they were, or why, except they had a vague idea that they wanted Cheez-Whiz, but they had no money, or forgot what money was, so they would just sway in front of the counter for a while, half-heartedly reach into a pocket, take the hand back out empty, look at you, turn, and weave to their car.I called the cops on the one guy, who did exactly this, not so much because of his "theft" as because I really didn't think he should be driving. And about all the cops did was take him home (he was a well-known "local character").Not even a week later, the power went out one night while I was working. I saw a bright flash down the road where a transforner blew. Yep, it was my Cheez-Whiz guy, he's crossed the line and slammed into a power pole, destroyed his truck, broke his jaw, which was wired shut. And he would still come in every morning after that for his coffee. And glare at me.
