random porn customers… part 25 (strip mall robber)

The porn store I worked at was in a strip mall. Well I actually worked at two different locations, but the one I’m going to tell you about is the strip mall one.  Each of the stores in the strip had a front door and a back door. The back door didn’t realy lead to anything.  There was a 10 foot tall retaining wall and that’s about it.  The porn store was next to a chain pizza place and a dog grooming place in the strip.

One day when I was working, a guy came running through the porn store waving a gun.  He went for the back room, which lead to the back door.  I told him he couldn’t get anywhere through the back door but he didn’t listen.  So the guy goes out the back door and I call the police.

While I’m on the phone, a couple of employees from the pizza place walk in.  Apparently they had just been robbed and the guy ran into my store.  Well guess what? The guy couldn’t go anywhere back there. His only way out was back through one of the stores.

So the pizza guys and I just hung out waiting for this stupid robber to come out one of the front doors in the strip mall until the police came. But the robber stayed put.  The police finally came and none of them seemed too excited about sticking their heads out a back door.  So they hung out in the porn store and waited.  Finally one of them had his fill of looking at the nudie magazines and decided to rouse the robber.  He and another police officer went out the porn and pizza back doors.

Low and behold, the robber runs out of the pet grooming place at the end of the strip mall.  This must have been a flurry of activity for the dogs next door because they began barking like crazy and one dog even got loose.  Of all the things that could happen, the dog starting running after the robber. This freaked the guy out and he kept looking over his shoulder at the dog. He was looking at the dog so much that he wasn’t paying attention to the ground and actually tripped and fell down.  The cops were able to get the robber while he was down and the dog was trying to hump him.

And hey, a couple of police officers bought a few things, but I wasn’t supposed to tell since they were on duty.  Oops.

  1. Hmmm, did they get the LEO discount? When I worked nights at the c-store I used to let the cops have old donuts and fresh coffe free for dropping in.

    Of course a coffe stain is easier to explain than “the hand” at end of shift.
