A single place where I can buy things to not smell terrible, light my house, and load up on beer is nothing short of amazing. God's work, really.

But what if some punk menace got hold of the controls and turned it all upside down and into a pain in the ass?


Thankfully, Reddit is around to shed light on insane hypotheticals.

A Redditor asked, "You run an inconvenience store, what do you sell?"You run an inconvenience store, what do you sell?"

The work of an absolute maniac...
