THE VERY DEFINITION OF INITIATIVE

Police in Connecticut are trying to identify a man they say got a job at a gas station and proceeded to steal $17,000 worth of merchandise and cash on his first, and only, solo overnight shift before disappearing.

(Thanks to pharmaross and Bill Hudgins, who says "you never get a 2nd chance to make a 1st impression.")

I have noted before that one thing to note when a Stop-and-Rob moves into your neighborhood is that it will attract the late night riff raff and assorted sleazeballs. And that's the employees.

This person took it to a whole new level.

$17,000 is totally believable. The markup on the Twinkies and snack chips is unreal.

Why only 89 boxes of cigarettes? Did he drop one?

The only way justice could prevail here is if the guy goes to Texas and tries this again. That would fix him!

The boss never got suspicious even when he said just call me Ali alias.

Doesn't say how many lottery tickets he stole. But what do you bet that given the time spent scratching them off, he won't make as much as he would have if he'd just worked somewhere for that amount of time?

Since he stole his employment folder, how will he collect his paycheck for his shift?
