Bruce Dean was a cashier in a small gas station. People come and go and he had seen all kinds of weird people enter his store. One day a woman was about to check out, when she asked Dean for some paper and a pen. She quickly left, when Dean read the note, he immediately called the cops. Now he is hailed a hero around town.
Bruce Dean was born in Calgary. When he was still at school, he didn’t have good grades and he never attended college. He knew he had to work hard though to pay his bills. Because he didn’t have a strong academic background, he did not have a lot of options. Dean then took on a job as a cashier in a gas station convenience store. The work itself was boring and Dean even had to work during nights.
Dean was one of the best cashiers at the store. He was always friendly with the customers and knew his way around the cash register like no one else. Yet sometimes Dean was bored, he sometimes thought of looking for another job. It also didn’t help that his friends made fun of him for having such a dull job. Of course they all had nice jobs, one was a teacher, another a nurse. Dean hated when his friends critiqued his job, but he started to think that they may be right, that his job really was pointless.
Then one day a woman stood in front of him at the counter and asked for some paper and a pen. She left the note and ran outside. When Dean read what was on it, he immediately called the police. On the note, the woman had written: “can you call 911, DV, baby in car” followed by a license plate number. The woman’s boyfriend was a wanted criminal. He had threatened her and her baby and without Dean’s quick reaction, something bad might have happened. Now everyone in town knows about Dean’s heroic act and he is extremely proud of his cashier job.
