“Take This Job and Shove It!”

New Albany B-Quik, Hwy 15 & Highland

Action early Tuesday morning, June 30th, by a New Albany convenience store worker called to mind a hit song from nearly 40 years ago.

At around 5 a.m. the New Albany Police Department sent a unit to the B-Quik convenience store at the intersection of Highway 15 and Highland.  The NAPD was responding to a call that said no employees were in the store at that early hour.

Police Chief Chris Robertson said officers determined that the female employee, who had been keeping the store, simply got tired of working the graveyard shift, quit and left the premises. She reportedly taped up the key to the store’s door were it would be found.

Perhaps she was inspired by the 1977 hit song written by “Texas Outlaw” bad boy David Allan Coe. Coe recorded “Take This Job and Shove It,” but the monster hit version was sung by Donald Eugene Lytel, better known as Johnny Paycheck. Paycheck died in 2003. David Allan Coe is still a bad boy at age 75.

Thanks for the tip, Joe.
