Convenience store workers my hat is tipped in your general direction. You see all of society in its good and not so good form. You are there when we need an iced beverage. You are there when our gas tanks are empty. You are there when the crazies show up and want to kill you for what is in the cash register.

Here is a robbery attempt that I am sure had the store clerk wondering if it was for real. A guy walks into a store armed with a palm frond. That's right all he has is a giant leaf and he is demanding money. The clerk wisely says no.

How do you defend yourself against such an attack? If you watch the video you will see a standard bar stool is the perfect defense weapon against anyone who would attack you with a giant leaf.
