A less-than-successful gambling habit!

I bet a gas station clerk in Hempfield, PA is feeling rather sorry for himself tonight.

A Hempfield service station clerk made a bet with a customer and ended up losing the $60 in an alleged theft.

State police said at 3:20 a.m. March 9, a 33-year-old customer complained to a clerk at Snooky's Sunoco about the price of cigarettes at the store at the intersection of Route 30 and Georges Station Road. The clerk took $60 out of his pocket, placed it on the counter and bet the customer that he could not find cigarettes cheaper at another store, according to police.

The customer allegedly grabbed the money and fled.

Moral of the story: don't offer a bet unless you know you can trust the other person!
