Story about an Arlington 7-11 owner

    Yeah I feel bad for copying everyone’s trend, this is a good story, but the guys who work in Westover’s 7-11 lost my respect when they caught me running out with three slushies on free slushie day.

    @westwilsonmafia: You still owe me my Slushie!  A blue one.

    @westwilsonmafia--I feel your pain man, they yelled at me at the one in Rosslyn because I was drinking it straight out of the tap. Jerks, I say!

    @Tom, great idea.  BTW: in a similar vein (?) I hate wasting those little paper sample cups at Menchie’s frozen yogurt. So I try the sample flavors right out the tap also. I guess I could weigh myself as I walked in the store, full myself of various yogurts, sprinkle the toppings on my tongue, and weight myself on the way out, and pay the difference.  And, I could really cheat by using their restrooms.  No, not as in bulimia, but as in “i gotta pee.”

    @westwilsonmafia: could save you a trip to the brig? That 7/11 guy isn’t going to cut you any slack!

    Steve always gets upset when no one “stays on topic.”  Steve, not to state the obvious, but if you didn’t turn every discussion into the same crap about smoking and transsexuals, perhaps folks would be more willing to discuss crock pot recipes with you.

    @Quoth:  Are you referring to: Smoking transexuals (verb noun) OR  Smoking transsexuals (adjective noun) ?  I think failure to make this clear was NS’s downfall. But, he sure was pleasant and polite speaking of crockpot recipes. I guess he had his comfort zone.

    NS has always been quite polite when discussing anything food related and all things German. Well, unless the German talk turned into a smoking thread. Which reminds me, we haven’t heard anything from the ranting vegan person in awhile.

    I miss the ranting vegan.  He’s awesome.

    Sunshine, you point out the problem with NS – he commonly engages in really frightful diatribes about all kinds of things, routinely spewing hate and some pretty foul opinions about the homeless, etc.  And then he wants to talk about crock pots, and wants folks to forget about the other stuff.  It just doesn’t work that way, although he commonly seems surprised.  And even when there are issues on which I might agree with NS, he makes it impossible to agree with him due to his unique way of arguing.

    I truly believe he’s:

    1.  Simply a troll that likes engendering angry discussion;

    2. Working for the website, and pumping up page hits through his controversial stances;

    3. A high school kid who’s just screwing around.

    I really don’t see any other possibility.

    “I really don't see any other possibility.”

    Dig deeper. There’s lots of inspiration out there:

    4. Tea Party member.

    5. Member of the College Republicans at a small all-white private school in Mississippi or Alabama

    6. Failed lawyer who lives in his mom’s basement

    7. President of the National Rifle Association

    Frankly, sansa, you’re almost as bad from the other side.  I know it doesn’t fit in with your simplistic, stereotype-happy world view, but there happen to be a lot of Republicans, and Tea Party folks, who don’t agree with Steve.  And (gasp!) not all Republicans think the same way.  You are always so quick to judge NS for grouping liberals into some sort of cohesive group, but you do exactly the same thing.  Frankly, given your absolute love for incessantly snarky comments, I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re the one living in your mom’s basement.

    It was a joke. Lighten up, Francis.

    …worked his way up the ladder, rising in responsibility at different stations before he was able to buy the 7-Eleven and Exxon franchise 2 1/2 years ago.

    He and his wife, Stacee, have two children: Sean, 14 (a new student at magnet Thomas Jefferson), and Shannon, 12. Vince said the distinctively Irish names were suggestions from a customer, an Irish American woman named Ginger who is a regular at his store.

    Math, seems legit.
