I sale items you purchase from the store and and” The clerk checked his surroundings nervously. “I’ve no idea of how to handle your type of request. Are you suffering some type of,” The clerk paused searching for the right words. “Are you high on something? Shrooms? Acid? Any mental illness?” The bewildered man ran away from the clerk with great panic. A scattered look in his eyes as if some serious reason tortured him.
