How can one shatter a picture window with a pizza? What was it made from cement?

I used to work at 7 eleven and it is scary there at night when nobody is around. I think all stores should have more than 2 people working at night to help with yahoos such as those that got angry with the clerk. Or at least have a guard dog inside the store.

With 1 person working, how can they take a lunch or break? These stores get away with not following the law, and those employees don't make much more than mininmum wage!
