Gas Station Attendant Fights Off Armed Burglar with Piping Hot Cup of Coffee

Gas Station Attendant Fights Off Armed Burglar with Piping Hot Cup of Coffee


A would-be gas station burglar changed his mind after an employee threw a cup of scalding hot coffee in his face

The clerk was lucky and had great aim, but police do not recommend this particular course of action in case of an attempted burglary.

An employee at the Marathon gas station in Muncie, Indiana, managed to foil an attempted armed burglary using nothing but a hot cup of joe.

The employee, who has not been identified, told police he was filling up a cup of coffee behind the counter when a masked man entered the small store. When he turned around, the man was pointing a gun at his face. Acting quickly, the gas station clerk launched the scalding hot cup of coffee at the intruder, hitting him squarely in the face.

A short video obtained from the station’s surveillance cameras shows the encounter, followed by the would-be burglar sprinting out of the store. The whole exchange happens so quickly that the door doesn’t even close from the burglar’s entry.

Local police, however, do not recommend that anyone follow the clerk’s example. “I would caution anyone against taking action, Muncie police officer Brian Campbell said in a statement. “If someone is robbing them the best thing do is to comply with their demands especially for money. It's not worth being injured or possibly killed over.”


MacGyvering

A character saves the day by making a gadget out of unlikely things, such as creating a bomb out of chewing gum, dental floss, duct tape, and a match. If he isn't already using the dictionary to provide the fuse, the character would realize he's a bricoleur and what he's doing is bricolage.

The characters that do this may be Technical Pacifists or Mr. Fixit. The Professor often seems to have the right tools on hand at the right time, as well. Even a Gadgeteer Genius can get into the act.

The Trope Namer and most famous practitioner of the art is Angus MacGyver, main character of the show that bore his surname, who would create said gadgets at least Once per Episode.

Note that the gadget has to be based on more science, creative thinking and Rube Goldberg Device than simply, "Hey, this blunt object could hurt someone!" Look for those under Improvised Weapon. May involve Noodle Implements.

Compare Homemade Inventions, Bamboo Technology, and Duct Tape for Everything. When MacGyvering is exaggerated and used as a setting it's Scavenged Punk. See Locking MacGyver in the Store Cupboard for situations in which this is used to escape confinement. Merit Badges for Everything is when MacGyvering is institutionalized and parodied at the same time.
