Services with a Smile

A man is filling his car up at a petrol station.

A scruffy man sidles up to him and pulls a knife.

'Gis your money – now!'

'You must be kidding'

'Do as I say!'

'Push off.'

'I'm giving you one last chance!'

Me too, now bugger off like a nice lad.'

'Look -'

The man turns and splashes petrol on his assailant.

'Hey, what are you doing!?!'

Man pats his pockets.

'Now what did I do with my lighter?'

'You're mad!'

'No, you're mad if you think I'm going to hand

cash over to a complete stranger.

Oh, he's gone.

Funny fellow.'
