Circle K Clerk Saves Herself by Shooting Robber, Gets Fired
We're talking about the Circle K, so let's get this out of the way.
Here's another story about a pistol packing mama (see PLOT TWIST: Man Tries to Beat his Girlfriend. Gets Shot Instead and WIN: Texas Mom Trolls Home Intruder with Security Camera Footage and a Shotgun!). She was tipped off the armed bandit was holding up convenience stores in the area. So she went to her car and grabbed her gun. Here, let her tell it.
“I thought I was going to lose my life, I thought that there was no way I was ever going to see my family, my children, anything again,” said Wertz. “I now know can protect myself, I now know that I can think clearly and keep a level head and I have a darn good shot.”
She should be given an award, right?
Nah, Circle K fired her. Having a gun in the store is against company policy. No word on if trying to rob the store is against company policy as well. Welcome to stupid corporate policies times seventy billion degrees of stupid. I realize I said "stupid" twice. Deal with it.
A Circle K clerk who shot a robber in the chest has been fired.
She says Circle K doesn’t allow employees to have weapons. She is now raising money through a GoFundMe page.
If you have a couple bucks to spare, and have already joined the Mug Club, help her out by clicking the GoFundMe link.
We can't be sure, but seems this policy of "no guns at worky-jerky" should maybe change after this woman saved her own life with a gun. Rather hard to enforce corporate policies if employees are mowed down by a gun-toting baddie who ignored the company policy of "do not rob us with guns please, k thanx bai."
Think about it. Common sense, yo. It's a thing.
