  1. People are very stupid to rob 7-Eleven stores. They purposely keep very little cash in the register at night. They use a very secure drop safe system where cash is dropped into a safe and cannot be accessed.

    People use credit cards most of the time, so little cash is ever needed.

    A robber will not get away with much from a 7-Eleven. It is just stupid to rob a store for a few bags of chips.
