Many moons ago I worked graveyard shift in a Circle K and 7-11. We were instructed to not get in physical confrontations with robbers and carrying a weapon was grounds for dismissal.That was 30 years ago.

I worked that shift at a Hess gas station in Rochester NY at the time the "Eye Gouger" was going around to such places. Had a pry bar with a thick, spoon-shaped end that I called the "Tongue Depressor" and it stayed with me during the single-car times or when someone decided to approach the station. Back then we still pumped the gas.
