And you should see how his enemies treat him

FORT GRATIOT TOWNSHIP, Michigan (AP) - A man visiting a convenience store in Michigan was struck in the head with a gun when he mistook a robber for a friend playing a practical joke, police said.
The masked man entered Sandler's Party Store about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, brandished a handgun and demanded money.
Police said Patrick O'Bryan, 21, walked up to the man, thinking he was a friend, and grabbed him in a playful way.
The gunman hit O'Bryan in the head with the gun, and the clerk opened two cash registers. The gunman took an undisclosed amount of cash and took off.
O'Bryan was not seriously injured and did not seek medical treatment, the Times Herald of Port Huron reported.
He was visiting a friend at the store in Fort Gratiot Township, 55 miles (89 kilometers) northeast of Detroit.
