Walked into a gas station one Friday night. I was a young college student living near Miami. This particular gas station was near Biscayne Blvd, by the infamous Denny's that was featured in Cocaine Cowboys.
A few of us were going drinking at some shithole indie rock bar called "The Spider Pussy" or something, but realized we needed cash. No biggie I thought, I will just run into this gas station and pull out some money from the ATM.
I walk in, see the ATM is in the far back corner of the gas station. As I am in there 3 big black dudes walk in and just start pulling shit off the racks and stuffing them in their pants. They are blindly taking whatever they want, chips, candy bars, headphones...
I can see this all going down from the back of the gas station. As these dudes are grabbing shit, I can hear the Indian cashier yelling at them over the microphone..."you can't hab dat, you must pay, you must pay..." the black dudes are yelling back, "man fuck that, we ain't paying for shit..."
Luckily for the cashier he can talk tough because he is enclosed in a bullet proof box in the middle of the gas station. So while he is arguing and yelling at these dudes stealing, he locks the doors, no one can leave.
Eventually the black dudes and the Indian guy are yelling face to face through the glass, the black dudes demanding he opens the door, the Indian dude demanding they pay or he "call the cops..."
Finally one of the big black dudes reaches in his pants and pulls out a hand gun...he is waving it around demanding the cashier opens the door before he "shoots this bitch up..." My heart is beating, no one has seen me yet, but I know the automatic door won't open.
I eventually got enough nerve to try and get the fuck out of there and while all three guys were at the little slit in the bullet proof glass yelling at the cashier, I scooted by and got to the doors. I am frantically motioning to the fucking cashier to open the god damn doors and he is just looking at me. However, as this is happening, a fucking 6'3 man is walking up to the gas station in a full on clown costume, hair, make up...I am thinking "WTF is going on, now who the fuck is this asshole.." Finally the cashier opens the door, I squeeze through them right as the clown walked up...
Have no idea what happened after that, but it was about to be a shootout between an Indian cashier, 3 big black dudes, and a 6'3 clown.
