In Georgia, a Waffle House employee was fired, after two years of employment, when the location she works a almost robbed, and she fired her gun.
Three men came in and ate, staying seated in their booth for nearly an hour, before attempting to rob the store.
According to WSBTV, “Deputies said the robbers gave a note to a waitress that threatened to shoot everyone unless she gave them money.” Another waitress, Heather Stanley, went out to her car, retrieved her handgun, and “fire one shot into the air” as the would-be robbers ran to their cars.
The employee said her motherly instincts kicked in, and she ran out to grab her 9mm out of her car. She fire a shot towards the woods, as a warning shot to let the robbers know not to come back, because this Waffle House was protected.
The next day, she was let go from her job.
She said, “I didn’t know if they had guns. I didn’t know if they were going to their vehicle to get another one and could come back and try to get to the safe, so my instinct was to go to my car and get the gun.” Stanley added, “For trying to protect their Waffle House and trying to protect their money and to get their money back, they let me go.”
She definitely should not have lost her job for trying to protect their store. After being a faithful employee, they should be giving her a reward!
