When ever you have a hard accomplishing whatever it is you do to keep the fridge full - remember  that somebody else had it worse that day.

"A 19-year-old who tried to rob a liquor store sat down and cried after 76-year-old owner locked him in the store."

" Police say Calix walked into the liquor store and asked for the price of a liter of Hennessey. While 76-year-old Jeff Wadkins was checking on his request, Calix allegedly grabbed a liter bottle and bolted for the door.
Keying a magnetic lock switch, Wadkins was able to secure the front door and trap Calix inside, police said. That's when, police said, Calix pulled out a handgun, pointed it at Wadkins and demanded he be let out of the store.
Wadkins said he knew the would-be robber posed no threat. "It was a fake gun, he wasn't armed," he said.

According to police spokesman Sgt. Pedro Medina, Calix then panicked. "The suspect ran to the back of the store attempting to find a way out, but it was not his lucky day," Medina said.

Unable to locate a second doorway, police said, Calix threw what he had brandished into the basement, returned to the front of the store, sat down and began crying.

"He just came up and sat on the floor and started crying," Wadkins said, adding he had never seen that before. "I had guys try to break the door down, one guy almost did it one time."
As they both waited for police officers to show up, Wadkins said Calix kept crying, and said only a few things that were comprehensible. "I believe he said, 'I have a child,'" Wadkins said. "

A child with a toothache who might be soothed with the Hennesey??
