Man asks to fill water bottle, shopkeeper threatens to shoot him

A man goes into a gas station so his girlfriend’s son can use the restroom, and asks the clerk if there is a faucet he can use to fill his water bottle. Hilarity does not ensue. When told it was for customers only, his girlfriend offers to make a purchase. The response? The man says that he is not a slave, and threatened to shoot them “in the head” while digging under the counter.
