Arkansas clerk: "I just wasn't in the mood [to be robbed]"

When Paul Fagin clocked in his for shift at an Arkansas gas station, he said it just wasn't the day for him to be robbed. When a suspect tried to do it, he fought back."The end result wasn't what he was looking for," said Fagin, who wasn't letting a robber with a shotgun shake him.Fagin said he was working at the Farmington, Arkansas, gas station Sunday morning when suddenly a man walked up."He dropped a black nylon bag on the counter and told me to put all the money in the drawer in the bag and if not he'd shoot me," Fagin said. Fagin, already having a rough day, had just returned from a friend's funeral."I just wasn't in the mood, you know?" he said. "First thing that came to my mind was 'no' so I said 'no.'The robber, surprised, demanded money again - but instead of grabbing the cash, Fagin grabbed his cell phone and started dialing 911. When that happened, Fagin said he left the store without the money.Police said what he did was a bad idea and that no money in the register is worth a life. That sentiment is something Fagin now agrees with."Some of my friends said I was heroic, and you know I tell them I was stupid," he said. Ultimately, though, he just wants the man who put him in that situation and put a gun in his face to pay. More info on the suspect here.Information via: KNWA
