Cody Conner, 17, walked into an adult novelty store in Debary with a loaded gun and intended to stick-up the cashier. Instead, the employee talked Conner out of the robbery, and actually convinced the kid to fill out a job application.

Of course Conner won't be getting the job. The employee turned over the application, with all of Conner's personal information on it, over to police.

The incident occurred at Cupid's Corner store, which promises on its website that it sells "everything for your erotic desires."

Conner demanded cash from the female employee, but she told him, "don't do this, it's not worth it."

She managed to talk to Conner for 20 minutes, and got him to remove the bullets from the gun. According to WESH, she told him the store might have a job opening, and got him to fill out an application.

The employee and would-be robber then hugged and even smoked a cigarette together.

After Conner left however, the employee walked next door and called 911. Authorities used the job application information to track down Conner. He was arrested and charged with armed robbery. Though, he told the police that the gun he used was only armed with BBs.
