Specialized ProfessionIAmA 3rd shift Gas Station Clerk working in one of those small box gas stations. AMA.

Dec 4th 2017 by TheFifthOneToBe • 25 Questions • 228 Points

Gotta run - thanks for all the questions!

Hey All! I’m Jessie, a Cross Country Skier and I race all winter on the World Cup - I am gearing up for another Winter Olympic Games -- all races from sprints to 30 kilometers! I have 4 World Championship medals, was part of the 2014 Winter Olympic team and am gearing up for another Olympic games.

I began skiing at age 3 and was part of the first-ever U.S. team to [win](https://www.teamusa.org/us-ski-and-snowboard/athletes/Jessie-Diggins

Q:

Do you sell more blunt wraps or silk roses?

A:

Hi Jessie, big fan from Norway here!

  1. What’s your favorite interval workout?
  2. Do you have any rituals or routines to mentally prepare for a race?
  3. What do you think it will take to make cross-country skiing as big in the U.S. as it is over here?

Best of luck with your season and the Olympics!


Q:

Blunt Wraps for sure. During my shift overnight i sell between 20 and 40. But in a 24 hour period we sell upwards 200.

A:

Hi! I love long zone 3 workouts because it's a great chance to really improve my technique while going hard. So, something like 5 x 10 minutes zone 3 with 3-4 minutes rest in between each one. Before each race, I put sparkles on my cheeks to remind myself that I do this because I love to ski and that when I'm having fun, I race my fastest! I think we need a World Cup in the US to help fans connect with the sport, and now with so many athletes sharing their life on social media fans can really connect and follow their favorite athletes - which makes them want to see the races even more!


Q:

You have a happy town, my friend. I hope your shift goes smooth!

A:

Other than racing, what's the best part of the Olympics?


Q:

Maybe the customers are happy! My manager, not so much. We have an employee stealing cigarettes. So now the manager stares at the camera’s recordings for at least an hour every morning trying desperately to figure out who’s doing it.

I know it’s not me. I’m on Reddit all night...

A:

Walking into opening ceremonies! It's such an adrenaline rush - the lights, the cheering, the noise. For me, that's the moment I felt like I had finally made the Olympic team!


Q:

Can I use the bathroom?

A:

Few questions

What's your favorite world cup venue (and why is it canmore)?

You always seem to have your music going on your Instagram, what's on your warmup playlist?

Would you rather fight 100 duck sized northugs or 1 northug sized duck?


Q:

I’m sorry sir, our bathroom is not open to the public. However feel free to use one of the bushes in the back.

A:

Haha I love Canmore because I have a lot of friends there and it's close(ish) to home! My warmup playlist involves a lot of upbeat pop like Taylor Swift, SIA and right now "Feel it Still" by Portugal the Man. And 100 duck sized Northugs would be hilarious.


Q:

I've had to pee really bad and been told I can't, but I never get mad. If anything it's my own damn fault for waiting until my bladder was going to pop to pull over.

A:

which foods are easiest to process during an intense sprint?


Q:

I had one guy who was high off his ass who punched the window because I said no. Here’s the thing, we have 3 inches of bulletproof glass between us, he DEFINITELY injured his hand.

A:

I eat cliff shot blocks - so, basically just simple sugar! I also like peanut butter banana sandwiches in between the qualifier and the heats.


Q:

That “thing” may change if you live in a city where the animals are given the keys to the cages.

Bill to prohibit bulletproof glass at Philadelphia stores, because it hurts customers' feelings https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbav5u3c8NM

A:

Should I put you on my fantasy team for Lillehammer? I need all the help I can get after a tough Ruka triple.


Q:

It hurts customers feelings... please tell me the bill didn’t get passed? (Can’t watch the video I’m at subway and have no data.... yay)

Our store actually only has two copies of the keys currently (one for the Manager and one for the store owner) if you go outside and lock yourself out at 3 am you are fucked.

A:

Haha I always have to bet on myself!


Q:

Hasn’t been passed but is being aggressively pushed by city councilwoman Cindy Bass(D). She is specifically targeting a convenience store that had the glass installed after a shooting.

Cindy is a real piece of work.

A:

Hi Jessie, I'm wondering who your #1 best underdog pick is for this weekend in Noah Hoffman fantasy?


Q:

It’s ridiculous I’ll agree to that.

A:

Honestly, the World Cup can change so much weekend to weekend! But my teammate Andy Newell just had a birthday today so he's feeling really happy and looks fast!


Q:

I get that. I also get that rules are rules in most cases.

A:

Hi Jessie, race hard this winter! Do you feel at this point that you are equally competitive in both classic and skate? Will that factor into the choices you make about what races to focus on at the Olympics? Thanks for being a great rep for MN.


Q:

I could write a book about that... I’ll just post two or three of them.

• There was this woman, presumably a stripper or exotic dancer. Who constantly (this became a daily occurrence for at least a week) would come in attempt to buy something and then ‘barter’ a discount with offers of a lap dance or ‘a night together’. She says all of this while scantly dressed and changing poses about every other word.

• I had another guy in the parking lot holding binoculars looking towards the park, i asked what he was doing and he goes ‘Spying on my wife cause i think she’s cheating on me.’ Mind you, this is a park FILLED with children.

• Then there’s the guy we call Jesus (pronounced Spanish Hesus), he comes by once a week and ALWAYS lectures whoever he can find about the rapture and how god is going to end earth once and for all because of all these teenagers and their darned cellphones. On one occasion he gave me a copy of the Bible.

A:

Thanks! I'm always working to improve in both techniques, but I feel that my classic is slowly getting there! I'm focusing on the skate-heavy races at the Olympics simply because I love the team events so much and I feel that's the best way I can help my team.


Q:

If its dead. I was supposed to be allowed to do homework, but really never could, because there was at most a 5 minute window before someone walked up. Thats a large portion of the reason I quit when I did. Also I realized that I really really hate dealing with stupid people on a regular basis.

A:

Hey Jessie! Big fan from Norway here! One of the most exiting races i've ever seen was the 10k in Falun 2015, congrats on the silver! Good luck this weekend at Lillehammer and in the Olympics! Anyways, my question is how is it for you to spend the entire winter every year here in Europe? Do you wish for eventually having more FIS races in USA?


Q:

I know! Although once or twice a week we have what we call ‘dead days’ which literally I’ll go 1-2 hours between customers. It’s the strangest phenomenon

A:

Thanks! It can be hard to be traveling the entire winter since I'm away from home and I miss my family. But, it's also really exciting to get the chance to see so many countries and meet so many new people! The best way to stay happy is to be with a team that has great chemistry. We are like a family and look out for each other! And yes, I would LOVE to have a WC in the USA!


Q:

Yes. There will be a dead period (10-15mins) and then 6 people show up at the exact same time. It makes no sense, but it happened multiple times per day.

A:

Hi Jessie. Big fan from Norway. Not very patriotic hahah, but you are the only CC skier i root for this Olympic Games. Wish you good luck under the games and may the odds be ever in your favor. Question : How supportive is the american community, and how big is the Cross Country skiing sport in the U.S ?

Btw: I want more dancing videos on IG!!


Q:

I’ve noticed that exactly, when they have me cover second shift here and there, when one car arrives, at least two more are right behind it at the SAME time.

A:

Thanks for being our fan! Skiing in the US isn't very big compared to other sports, but our fans are really passionate and awesome! So, I think we need to get a World Cup to the US to help grow the sport and continue the live streaming of World Cups so our fans can follow along!


Q:

It's called shitty traffic and street lights

A:

Which song(s) do you listen to on your Bose headphones/speaker to get amped up for your races?


Q:

Ha ha the guy who responded before me pretty much hit the nail on the head!

A:

I love anything with a good dance beat that's happy! Right now, "Feel it Still" by Portugal the Man and "The Greatest" by Sia make me really happy!


Q:

I went to a Walgreens apparently right after some kid tried to buy the same type of Camels as me. I was on hour 20 of a voluntary overtime shift grabbing sunflower seeds, Ramen noodles, coffee, and a pack of cigarettes. They wouldn't sell me the cigarettes.

I still feel bad for this kid and if he still worked there I would apologize, but I had been up for going on 30 hours and went the fuck off. I was hungry, tired, and hadn't had a smoke for 6 hours. All I wanted in life was a cigarette, a cup of noodles, and coffee.

I informed him in no way shape or fucking form was I buying them for a minor, if he wanted to ride the 5 blocks back he could watch me smoke a cigarette, and if he wanted I would empty the "whole goddamn freezer section and leave it in a corner so you have to put everything back".

Again I am not proud of my actions and would have told myself to fuck off, but I got my pack of cigarettes and they watched me drive off to go monitor emergency generators for another 10 hours until the Monday shift showed up.

A:

I am food obsessed and dream about being a cross country skier so I can eat whatever I want. Really though, how many calories would you say you burn in your average training while skiing? Good luck.


Q:

You know what it was (and i don’t blame your reaction tbh) the cashier was scared of losing their job. We are held responsible if someone buys cigarettes and hands them off, which i think under some situation is completely understandable but there are times where something like your scenario happens because of it.

A:

In a long training session, or intervals, I probably go through around 1600 calories. That's a lot of granola bars! :)

A:

Just saw your dog on your link. So cute! What kind of dog is it?


Q:

The thing is I could’ve and i would’ve, but the second he asked for the Newport’s for the kid I no longer can. Because if the camera caught him handing the cigarettes off to a minor I lose my job on the spot.

A:

Leo is a French Brittany - and he's the cutest little guy!


Q:
  • How do you like working the 3rd shift?

  • Have this made you into a night owl or have you always been one?

  • Do the freaks really come out at night?

A:

Thoughts on Klæbos peculiar ski form of running on skis in the classic races?


Q:

How do you like working the 3rd shift?

I actually enjoy working third shift quite a bit. I absolutely hate second shift now because of it lol.

Have this made you into a night owl or have you always been one?

Definitely made me a night owl. Prior to this job I’d go to bed at 8pm or so and wake up 3am or 4am to start my day

Do the freaks really come out at night?

Yes. Yes they do. I’ve made a few comments about some of the experiences I’ve had.

A:

He's really, really good at it!


Q:

How do you react when a guy with severe social phobia pulls up and, visibly nervous, starts pumping gas while aggressively avoiding eye contact with anyone?

A:

Hi Jessie! Big fan from Denmark here who wants to know if you hadn't become a cross country skier what would then have become? A dancer perhaps? =)


Q:

I’ve had that guy show up a few times. It’s really just matter of watching them “without watching them” or just using the cameras. I can completely understand Social Anxiety and the likes but once it gets to phobia, especially with the heightened crime rates we’ve in the area, i always keep an eye on them and any one who seems sketchy/rubs me the wrong way.

A:

Haha yes, I definitely would have wanted to become a dancer! I don't think I would have been good enough for that, but I always really enjoyed helping other people be active and get outdoors so I would have been involved in sports in one way or another.


Q:

Oh, nice to finally meet you!

A:

Good luck this winter Jessie! How do you explain the difference in performance/success between your team and the men’s ? Y’all are inspiring. Hopefully they’ll catch up!


Q:

Actually i can answer this. I worked at Walmart before this, and our Walmart has one. I only went inside of it twice but if i remember correctly, it was about half of the size of my current booth and did not have a bathroom. However at our Walmart they had the associate in there for 3-4 hours before someone else swapped with them so they could take a lunch break and use the in store bathroom.

A:

I think our men are training really hard and doing all the right things - but sometimes you see countries gain momentum one way or the other and it's just hard to explain! Some countries are much better at classic, for example, and some have a stronger women's program, but I've seen a lot of our younger athletes training and I'm confident that they're going in the right direction!


Q:

Has anyone ever asked you for gas money? Have you ever given it to anyone?

A:

are there certain people you don't get along with, or are you forced to be close with everyone?


Q:

It’s happened twice, I only helped one of them (Shane on me I guess) the first time was within my first two weeks of working there so I wasn’t sure if I was allowed too besides I was broke lol. However the second time I happened to be in a really good mood, had an awesome check and pretty or left over change from previous customers (which we have to get ride of the excess change anyway) to give this woman 2 gallons for free (which I mean, if i saw you pushing your car off the street and onto the gas station from the bottom of the street, chances are I’m going to help you)

A:

I think that part of being a good teammate is knowing that you might not normally hang out with your teammates in regular life, but to be a good teammate is to have their back and look out for them, and to support them! So our goal is not to be best friends, but to be "best teammates" as that's an even more important thing.


Q:

why is Shane on you? is Shane okay?

A:

Stillwater Nordic Alum here; being on the team with you and watching you race was such an awesome experience. Your legacy is part of the reason the Ponies are still thriving, and you can do so much more than compete!

In the future, after your competitive years, what do you see yourself doing for the good of the sport?


Q:

Lmao typos! That was 6 hours ago? Should’ve been when i woke up from my hour nap after work haha

A:

Hey! So fun to hear from a Stillwater alum! I think after a few years I'd like to get into coaching at some level to help give back to the sport I love so much!


Q:

yeah. plus I hear Shane really likes sitting on people when they are asleep

A:

What's your favorite cereal?


Q:

Yeah, the prick follows me home too!

A:

I like to bake granola - ginger molasses is my current favorite!


Q:

to give this woman 2 gallons for free (which I mean, if i saw you pushing your car off the street and onto the gas station from the bottom of the street, chances are I’m going to help you)

sucker. You just got scammed by an elaborate scam

A:

Do you always train with a HR monitor? Do you think they're beneficial for non-professional level athletes?


Q:

Yeah that’s what most people thought when I’ve told the story, but to be fair i only paid 50 cents out of pocket. Because like i said before I HAVE to get rid if that excess change one way or another.

A:

I don't always use one - but I do use them often when I'm trying to achieve a specific goal, like if I'm trying to keep my heart rate low on long distance skis (especially if I've traveled to altitude!) or if I'm doing intervals and want to stay in a certain zone. I think they can be helpful for non-professional athletes if you're looking to try some new things in your training and want to see where you're at, but the most important thing is to have fun and pay attention to how your body is feeling!


Q:

If they went to all that trouble to push the car in for a few gallons of gas, I feel they deserve it, scam or not. Thats commitment if it was a scam lol

A:

Hey Jessie! I skied throughout high school, and am also from MN! I love watching you race and kick ass! It was awesome to hear that your favorite memory from high school racing was going up to Giants Ridge for 3 days since that was also my favorite memory from high school skiing (my team did the exact same thing haha).

Where was/is your favorite place to ski in Minnesota? In the world?

Is there a piece of advice someone or a coach gave you which really stuck with you?


Q:

You want to hear commitment to a scam? There was a couple who, the guy would walk around his phone and then pretend to have a seizure and drop to the ground convulsing and shaking, then the woman would go to him “steal” his wallet and run away. After a few seconds he would recover and say ‘wtf? She stole my wallet!?’ And then start crying and begging bystanders for money for the bus and whatnot. I’ve watched them do it 4 Times now...

A:

Hey that's awesome! Giants Ridge camp is so awesome. In Minnesota, I have a real soft spot for Giants Ridge, especially the silver course because of all the ups and downs and fun corners! In the world, I really love training in Seiser Alm, Italy because of the sun, amazing ski trails and great food. :) My coach said "nobody ever died of disappointment. You'll never regret giving it everything you have and not coming out on top, but you'll always regret not trying at all".


Q:

Id ask if she gave the wallet back from last time in front of everyone.....

A:

Hello Jessie,

Have say I love your racing and attitude towards the sport and everything you do.

Norwegian skiers become "superstars" and seem to get whatever they want in life. What do you see yourself doing when the skiing career is over?

Thanks and good luck racing in Lillehammer- kill those decents :o)


Q:

There’s this other guy whose scam is i need 2$ for the husky wife is going into labor in the next city I’ve yada yada. He tried it on me twice but with a month in between so the second time I responded with “Damn, she’s been in labor for a whole month? That’s crazy!” And he just shied away

A:

I think all the skiers on the World Cup, no matter where they're from, have to work so hard to find success and achieve their goals. When I'm done skiing, I think I want to take some dance classes and take a mental break from the sport for a little bit! :) Then I'll go back to school and finish University.


Q:

Did you ever get shot at or knifed?

Do you have bullet-proof glass?

How about your best stories?

A:

Jessie! Hi! Who’s the funniest non-American/Canadian at the World Cup races?


Q:

Did you ever get shot at or knifed?

At work? Nope. But I’ve been stabbed in the leg once and then once again in the lower back. Never shot at ... yet.

Do you have bullet-proof glass?

Of course, 3-5 inches of it.

How about your heat stories?

Oh man I’ve already told most of them in other comments. Here’s another good one;

We have a regular, his name’s Jimmy. Jimmy comes once a week at 4:30am-5:30am intoxicated to the point where he can barely walk. The first time he came he freaked me out because every time the first thing he says is “I need an ambulance. I need one now.” However I’m use to Jimmy now. So of course I oblige and call the police station and I literally say “Jimmy’s here again.” And they know exactly where to go and pick him up. Here’s the thing, he’s here EVERY WEEK except he never showed up two weeks ago. Last week he showed up, same time as usual but he wasn’t intoxicated (I didn’t recognize him until he said he was Jimmy) he told me that the week before he was mugged for his wallet, phone and shoes. He then informed me that he’s been sober for 7 days and plans to never drink again. Stopped by yesterday and he’s still doing good afaik.

Here’s another story for you;

Around 2am sometime last week, I had a guy come up and the only thing he said was “I’d like to report a crime.” I myself thought he was going to say a drink or something got stolen, didn’t care much, but i ask him what happened and he goes on telling me how this girl stole his car down the street at the bank while he was grabbing money from the atm. Of course i call the cops to help him and when they arrive i overheard the details of exactly what happened. Get this; Man picked up a prostitute and went to withdraw money for her ‘services’ while grabbing the money she stole his car....

A:

Haha that's a great question! I feel like a lot of the techs and coaches have a great sense of humor and are always joking around.


Q:

How many gallons a month you guys sell?

A:

Jessie,

I've been doing the running/ biking/ skiing/ endurance sports for a while. Much too late in life am I realizing what it truly means to go hard on your hard days, easy on your easy days, and that a quality focused sessions is much more productive than simply grinding out the miles. You have a lot of athletic success starting at a fairly young age. Did you have any particular moment when you had a similar realization as to what quality training is? Are there any learning moments you can share on this topic?

Thanks, and have fun in Pyeonechang!


Q:

I don’t know off of the top of my head to be honest but I’ll check when i go back tomorrow if i remember.

A:

I think it's great that you're able to listen to your body now and figure that out! For me, I had to learn to honestly listen to the signals my body was giving me (like if I wasn't recovered and shouldn't push through intervals) and then act on that. I think quality training is when you are able to feel good and focus on your technique and what you're doing - if you're really tired and it's hard to focus you might need to back it down a little bit! I also had coaches who made all the difference for me - reminding me that it's not about how much or how fast you train, but how fast you race that actually counts!


Q:

I work for a gas station company in the home office and don't get too much exposure to our sites.

Operations-wise what are your biggest struggles working the third shift and what are some things the support team can do to help?

A:

Hi there, I am a cross country ski instructor and find that most of my clients are younger children and older adults (or teenagers in school group lessons). What do you think can be done to bring younger people into the sport? Other than cooler graphics on the skis :P


Q:

Honestly I’ve hd no issues whatsoever besides having so much down time. There are nights i feel like I’m being paid to babysit the place and do nothing. That’s AFTER cleaning the whole booth, the trash and stocking everything, i mean it’s easier for me to finish my daily work since it’s smaller than your usual store.

A:

Haha great graphics are pretty awesome, for sure! But I think playing games on skis really got me into it. I loved playing tag and soccer on skis and doing fun and silly relays with my friends when I was younger - it kept me having fun and also built a lot of skills! You could also set up a sort of challenge for them during practice, like goals of skiing a certain amount of kilometers, a new trail, or doing a scavenger hunt!


Q:

You just told a manager you don't have enough work.

A:

How do you feel about the men's and women's USST having identical objective criteria for team selection when women's skiing has significantly less depth and higher FIS points? It seems unfair to name teams off of world cup points when some women's race don't even have 30 racers, while male skiers like Hoffman end up in 50th place with a lower percent back than the 3rd place women's racer? How do you feel about how female skiers' attractiveness affects their marketability?


Q:

I’ve openly admitted it to her before lol

A:

Hey Silent Sports, I think that selection criteria is up to the coaches - you're going to have to get our coaches on an AMA for this one ;)


Q:

Hey I don't know if you're still around or not, but those box exchanges have always been my favorite type of booths. Having worked in one I have a question

See the drinks that are displayed outside? What happens if someone picked one up and walked away

  1. Is the owner Turkish or Indian? That's all they ever are

  2. You answered plenty of bathroom questions but didn't read any about YOUR needs

  3. Was your stabbings job relayed or whole other story? If job related I want to hear it I was tied up in the floor for about 5 hours while the thieves worked the gas pumps and registers and then left at the end of their (my) shift.

  4. Since you have you basically have a bomb proof glass. If I waved a gun around and demanded money, do you laugh or oblige?

A:

See the drinks that are displayed outside? What happens if someone picked one up and walked away

Nothing really. I mean the cameras record their face and now we know to look for them next time. We just have to write down what exactly was stolen if we saw it. We had the auditors come last week and corporate doesn’t seem to care honestly.

Is the owner Turkish or Indian? That's all they ever are

To my surprise he was actually a middle aged Caucasian man (if you’re talking about the owner of the building)

You answered plenty of bathroom questions but didn't read any about YOUR needs

I answered this somewhere just don’t remember exactly where. I just put a sign on the window saying I’ll return momentarily and then i just use the bathroom lol

Was your stabbings job relayed or whole other story? If job related I want to hear it I was tied up in the floor for about 5 hours while the thieves worked the gas pumps and registers and then left at the end of their (my) shift.

No no once was some gang violence back in the day (not affiliated just wrong place at the wrong time) the other is a culinary accident (love to cook) Now with thieves, we actually have someone, an employee stealing cigarettes. 61 Packs were missing last month.

I want to here more about your story though?

  1. Since you have you basically have a bomb proof glass. If I waved a gun around and demanded money, do you laugh or oblige?

I’d laugh a lot while secretly dialing the police to distract you. I’ve actually had a guy come up and wave his gun once (not trying to rob) because we were talking about the recent strings of mugging happened in town and he’s like “I never leave home without this”


Q:

Do you ever shut the overhead lights and big sign off at night, then feign ignorance (oops, must have forgot to turn them on when the sun went down) if you get called on it?

A:

Nah, I’ve never done that because we’re open 24/7 so even overnight I’m required to keep everything running.


Q:

Do you sell a lot of candy? What kind?

A:

Yes. It’s probably one of the beat selling things after gas and tobacco. We sell literally most brands you’d see in your average Walgreens


Q:

Can I get ten bucks on pump 3?

A:

Regular, Midgrade or Premium?


Q:

you'rer 'underpaid'? you're likely paid too much for /u/A_Bungus_Amungus

whne are you going to get educated so you can answer questions?

A:

Yeah, i don’t know what you expected man. I have absolutely zero interest in researching “the cleanest fuel source” on top of that, it’s literally impossible to make less than in my state, I am literally paid minimum wage WITHOUT an overnight differential on top of that.


Q:

What's the best way for me to fuck a gas station clerk up the ass when I visit them? Do you sell lube?

A:

Nope no lube, for some reason we don’t even sell condoms which blows my mind. I have at least 3 people a night ask and i have to redirect them down the street to my favorite corner store.

I guess if you want to get with a gas station clerk you should probably start by becoming a regular, once she has your order memorized Switch it up in her and start a conversation over it. This’ll spark some interests and you guys can bond over something you both like. Continue this for the following week. Eventually when you feel confident enough ask her to go out for drinks or lunch/dinner, breakfast works if you’re broke. Make sure she enjoys herself, afterward suggest you guys go watch a movie. After a few more dates invite her over to your place and you should be Golden from there my friend.


Q:

I wasn't referring to a girl, I was referring to you.

A:

I mean it works for guys as well.

I myself however am happily engaged currently lol


Q:

[deleted]

A:

Hasn’t yet, only 19. But give it to some time lol
