Customer Attacks Clerk for Not Smiling Enough

And a customer on a late-night snack run assaulted a convenience store clerk for not smiling enough while serving him. According to Rocket News 24, a 54-year-old customer walked into a convenience store for some late-night snacks around dawn on Sunday. The convenience store clerk completed the transaction in a professional manner and handed over the bag, but apparently he was not cheery enough for customer’s liking. The customer left, started calling for the clerk from outside the store, demanding that he come out and apologize for being surly and give him the smile he was owed. The clerk reportedly went out to confront him, and it escalated into an actual fight. The customer attacked the clerk to the point where he had to be hospitalized.
