Wrong Kind of Lettuce

After allegedly robbing a gas station by threatening to shoot who he referred to as “the old lady” (even though he apparently had no gun), Larry Franklin of DeLand, Fla., moved on to the Friendly Way convenience store. There, Franklin, 16, picked up a bottle of salad dressing, approached the counter, pointed the bottle at the clerk, and allegedly demanded, “Gimme the money.” In response, the clerk pulled out a real gun and pointed it at Franklin, who then calmly said, “OK, I’ll get out.” He was quickly apprehended by police, and bragged about his long arrest record. (MS/Daytona Beach News Journal) ...Good thing this happened at the Friendly Way — any other clerk might have just shot him.
