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...

Any clear liquid you could possibly ever need... Water, rum, vinegar, brake cleaner, you name it. All on the same shelf, all in identical plastic bottles, all unlabeled. You open it, you buy it.

IT'S NOT THE SAME

We have everything, just not the brand your spouse was expecting.

Rules are rules, sorry 

AA batteries, but with a strict limit of 1 battery per customer.

That pre-brunch weekday rush

It's not what I sell, its when I am open (Tuesday to Friday from 9am to 10.30am)

Guaranteed to piss you right off!

Earbuds but they're at the stage where they only work at a certain angle.

What's a summer barbecue without a low carb weirdo

Hotdogs in 12 packs and buns in 10 packs

Non-recyclable

individually packed m&ms

One at a time, please

I sell scratch off tickets to 50-70 year old customers. They have to buy a minimum of 20 tickets and scratch them all off at the register while the rest of the line waits. If you came in to buy milk or pay for your gas, you're f***ed.

Keyboards that have the m and n keys switched

Best "in the back" section of all time

We sell everything, except it's all out in the warehouse and you have to ask an employee to get it for you.

Manipulation is designed to be stealthy. We hardly recognize it when it's happening to us because our abuser has forced it to appear under wraps.

But when we recognize it for what it really is, we really feel like we've been smacked across the face. There is no other descriptor for it. Usually we've trusted and loved those that manipulated us.

Just as new mothers encounter the sudden, influential developments of powerful hormone changes, protective instincts, and milk production, so new fathers undergo some key changes of their own.

Their socks become exclusively white, climbing higher up the calf than ever before. All their shorts sprout cargo pockets and clunky belt loop cell phone holders. They start to really lean in to their old records.

Cleaning up is hard enough when it's just clearing a month of dust bunnies. Can you imagine cleaning the debris left by murder, suicide and violence? I have a really great friend who used to do crime scene clean-up for a living. The pay is incredible; it starts at $55 an hour. But there is a much higher cost in mental well being. Death affects you in ways you don't always feel immediately. My friend has stories of nightmares, depression and pain after leaving scenes of horror. Why make all that money just to spend it on therapy? It takes a certain type of person.

***TRIGGER WARNING. CONTENTS ARE SENSITIVE ***

Redditor u/MemegodDave wanted to hear from the people who have the stomach to come in after crime and tragedy

to try to bring back some form of normalcy to the location by asking... People who make their living out of cleaning murder scenes, accidents and the like, what is the worst thing you have experienced in your career?

We all know the telltale signs that something is making us uncomfortable. Suddenly, we begin shaking, either in our hands or knees or toes. Then, usually, sweat starts pouring out of every part of our body, making it look like we just ran through a rainstorm underneath a waterfall. Finally, we lose our regular speech functions. Everything goes out of sync and our words don't match up to what's in our minds.

What's interesting is that what usually brings about these fits of uncomfortableness differs from person to person, as evidenced by the stories below.
