What Would You Shoot Someone Over?

First of all, this article on msnbc.com has the best lead ever:

A Wendy's manager was shot several times in the arm early Tuesday trying to protect the restaurant's chili sauce, authorities said.


And the best quote ever:

"I did not know I got shot," store manager Renal Frage told WTVJ-TV in Miami. "When I went back to the office, I saw blood pumping out of my arm, and I was shocked. I was checking myself out and couldn't believe I got shot over some chili sauce."

Frage added: "I got shot over chili sauce. I was trying to figure while in the hospital why someone would shoot me over some chili sauce."

As you probably deciphered, a customer shot a Wendy's employee for not giving him extra chili sauce in Miami recently. There are a million directions I could go with this story, but I'm choosing to use it as a springboard for my Question of the Day:

What would you shoot someone over? I hope not chili sauce.

P.S. I didn't even know Wendy's has chili sauce. What's so great about it?

I really hope Renal (didn't know if that was a boy or girl) didn't get blood IN the chili sauce.

That would be bad.

Thanks for the compliment, M.! I, too, hope there's no blood in the chili sauce. (Seriously, did anyone know Wendy's even had chili sauce?)

P.S. If it was a really hot day and I was really thirsty, I think I could shoot someone over a McDonald's fountain Coke. But only with a BB gun. (Does anyone think MccyD's puts some sort of drug in their Coke? I don't even like Coke, but I love theirs.)
