A gas station owner was about ready to close up his shop for night when he looked out of the window and saw two boys behind his store.
Unbeknownst to them, they had thought that the close was clear and excited to steal a few goodies from an empty shop.
Some quick thinking from the owner led to him turning off the lights and hiding away in an alcove in the far corner.
As the boys made their way in and perused the aisles, the owner crept to the light switch; but before turning them on he through a glass bottle against the wall.
As the boys ran as fast as they could to get to the exit, they were met face to face with the owner…
...the lights illuminating the whole situation.
The premature thieves stood frozen in their shock, so the owner broke the silence.
“Take whatever you please…
...it’s on the house.”
