    I was at a gas station in the hood yesterday .

    They had flashing ads on the gas pump video screens. After the one that proclaimed "We Accept SNAP" there was an ad that proudly stated "We have jewelry scales!"

    I assume this is a secret code for a scale that weighs illicit substances before selling?

    This place was like a mecca of shady transactions. They had a rack of faux North Face jackets, and questionable looking UGG boots and Timberlands. They had sketchy logo-ed car mat sets for Mercedes and Cadillac. My lowly Saab felt left out but I guess it is not of that echelon.

    I've seen stores put Chore Boy next to light bulbs.

    The pipes they sell are clearly labeled "for tobacco use only".

    I knew that; yes! I did not see those.

    At least they had a separate cooler for worms/bait. I have seen other places that had them in with the beverages

    You should come to Georgia. The coloreds appear to be very well behaved.

    There was a young guy, maybe late teens/early 20s, begging for change in front of the store as well

    we service tons of small grocery stores in and around the city that are pretty much just supplies for drug dealers and drug users. They put some chips and pop in there and call themselves a grocery store :jj:

    They have everything in here. They even have a fried chicken concession, but just chicken and fries; nothing else.

    I try to go here once a week when I am in town for work; best gas prices around. Sometimes there is along line for the pumps and I will just say "eff that."

    You wouldn't think you could get a quality watch that says ROLEX a on it, from a Circle K in North Kansas City, but for 45.00, you can!

    The "jewelry scale" thing was a new one to me. I've seen all the other ones. I don't really see the "CD Cleaner" around anymore.

    I had no clue about the tiny roses in the glass tubes though.
