    Doesn't even point it at him and scumbag starts crying. If you choose armed robbery for your career path, at least act like a professional.

    So much idiocy and lack of acting as a man should in such a short video. Good job on the clerk's part though. Here's hoping the police can find the little POS would-be robber.

    I live really close to there too.. glad the clerk has some sense to carry, especially with the shady people that are always hanging around there.

    Is that confirmed? Or suspected?

    I wouldn't put it by the pansies at corp to fire a guy for protecting his own life. Hell, if I worked in a job like that I would definitely be carrying - corp. policy be damned. Can always get another, better, job, somewhere else.

    It's a plaid pantry, so who knows if the guy was fired. Kudos to the clerk!

    What do they expect for 15 a hour to give your life then everyone will put flowers down and light candles tomorrow.Give the man a raise. There's another place on my no buy list.

    I guess companies have this policy because the company is liable for the actions of the employee...
    It's too bad there isn't some sort of exemption clause written in the books. Might make companies reconsider their stance.

    It would be awesome if someone could track down the clerk and give him a better job. What also sucks is that if he violated a company policy, he was fired for cause and won't likely be eligible for unemployment benefits.

    I also live only about 2 miles from there. I stop there almost every Sunday on my way home from Church. My kids call it "Sunday Plaid Pantry".
    Maybe those of us that live close should all go down there for a meetup, by a bag of chips and congratulate the clerk.

    The guy should have never called the cops. Just continue on with your shift, nobody else will ever know.

    Guy should get after a pro bono / aclu attorney and sue the snot out of plaid pantry for not having a safe space to work, if they are not allowing personal defense....

    Man I’m so sick of people getting fired for defending themselves.

    Tell those suit wearing pansies in corp to come get hacked up with an ax before they make that policy.

    Or pay for security.
