autozone did the right thing unfortunately.

i work at a fast food restaurant. first thing they teach you when you get into management is that during a robbery you completely cooperate with the robbery and give him whatever he wants or whatever he wants you to do. never look the robber in the eye or he will think you might remember your face and he will get nervous. if you pull a gun and it turns into a shoot out and the manager dies as well as you maybe killed also while the robber fleeds with a gun shot wound 2 good people dies because 1 person tried to be a hero.

hard to wrap your head around but they did make the right decision

It's hard to wrap my head around your terrible grammar.

yeah, unfortunately, while I don't agree with Autozone's policy, they did act in accordance with it.

Papa John's cuts hours to circumvent Obamacare and it's cool because "it's his company and he can do what he wants!"

Autozone cans a guy who clearly violated company policy, and it's an outrage that won't be tolerated.

"Conservatives".

Pizza doesn't kill people, guns do.

Two things.

1: Study harder to get out of the fast food industry, although from the sentence structure and grammar, it appears you have found your niche.

2: You know why they tell people not to attempt to stop a robbery? Lawsuits. They don't want to get sued if you injure the robber, or the civil suit from his family from killing him.

Autozone acted both wrong and right. They have the opportunity to change the way people view their stores, and dropped the ball. They followed their policy, but in the end they lost an employee and the money, and a little respect.

Second time I've posted this picture this morning. I have a feeling it can go places...

"We like you, we want to employ you, here are all our rules, do you agree to follow them as a condition of employment?"

"Yes."

"Great! Here is your position."

...[days pass]

"Looks like you violated one of our rules. We will no longer need your services."

[Outrage ensues]

Make a thread about it...

:facepalm:

I just said I disagree with the policy and that dude was fired in accordance with it. I disagree with the policy from a basic standpoint that "no guns policies don't prevent guns".

When did I mention some kind of outrage?

ThatGuy_JZ 12-05-2012 09:30 AM

I used to work at an Advanced Auto, it was company policy to never interfere with any kind of theft or robbery. You were expected to just let them go or give them what they want. So hypothetically speaking, someone could just come in, grab what they want, and then walk out and all we could do was call the police.

That's corporate for you.

Most of these companies forbid their employees from bringing a firearm to work. He violated the policy, and was rightfully terminated.

While he was a 'hero' in some people's eyes, he could have just as easily got coworkers or customers killed by resisting the robbery.

NOVAbimmer 12-05-2012 09:37 AM

Instead of just saying what a hero he is and what a bad move this was for Autozone, maybe the local sheriff should offer the kid a job.

I think this is the important part. What the employee did was escalate the robbery into a potential standoff/shootout situation. It's much better, IMHO, to just let the guy take the hundred bucks in the till and leave instead of getting someone killed over a few bucks.

Also, I'm unfamiliar with the Glock 40 model...

I was referring to the posters itt that are outraged by the outrageous thread title and the outrageous actions of the company that fired the guy who broke Autozone's outrageous rules.
