Crazy Fool Punches Female Store Clerk In The Face Over 40 Cents He Owed

September 30, 2013  |  

After years of working in customer service for different retail stores, I know how bold some people can be, but I’ve never seen anyone get violent over money THEY owed. But that’s just what happened at a gas station Lakewood, Ca. According to the local CBS affiliate, a man brought $1 to buy a Swisher Sweets cigar that was $1.41 in the local Chevron station. When the female store clerk told the man he didn’t have enough, he had a fit, tried to grab the cigar out of the woman’s hand, and when he failed, proceeded to punch her in the face.

The woman, who wanted to be named as Yadira, says the man told her when she said he didn’t have enough, “this is all I have…b***h whatever.” When she told him he needed to leave, he clearly grew belligerent and decided a Swisher Sweet was worth assaulting someone.

“It just happened so fast. My reaction, I didn’t think he would hit me. And he just socks me.

Really, over 41 cents? Imagine if he got like that…imagine what else would have happened. That’s the thing that came to my head. I hope it doesn’t ever happen to anybody.”

Probably frightened, or not caring, those in line at the gas station tried to keep away from the man as he walked out of the station. Police are searching for the suspect. As for “Yadira,” though her eye was injured, she continues to go back to work to the gas station but told the local CBS affiliate that she’s fearful. “There’s cowards out there willing to do stupid stuff.”
