Exclamation I'M done with OFFAL House...

Used to eat in 'em a LOT when I was a textile engineer 30 years ago. When I was running overnight cotton dust tests, in a mill in West Tumbleweeds, NC/SC/GA/AL/TN/VA, OFFAL House was usually the only thing OPEN @ 3 in the morning. I could make a local newspaper, a BLT, & bowl of Bertha's chili last for HOURS.

Now I see they prefer their employees & customers to be helpless victims - good for them. They can just count ME out of their customer base from now on.

Waffle House waitress in Georgia fired for shooting gun during robbery

Security camera stills of the three 'hard-working Yutes' who robbed the joint, "trying to turn their lives around," being the "good little boys" that they are...



NEWNAN, Ga. - While Georgia authorities continue to seek three robbery suspects who threatened to shoot everyone inside of a Waffle House, the waitress who fired one shot into the air while the men ran to their car has been fired.

The robbery happened around 2:30 a.m. Thursday at the restaurant on U.S. Highway 29 in Newnan.

Coweta County deputies said the robbery suspects gave a note to a waitress in which they threatened to shoot everyone unless she gave them money.

A different waitress, Heather Stanley, went to her car to get a gun and fired one shot into the air while the suspects ran to their cars. She said she fired in the air because she didnít want to hit a nearby gas tank.

"She made it known she was ready to defend herself," customer Ben McCoy said.

Stanley said she has since been fired from her job.

"I didnít know if they had guns," Stanley said. "I didnít 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 said she was only trying to protect the store and her co-workers, and didnít expect to be let go.

"For trying to protect their Waffle House, and trying to protect their money and to get their money back, they let me go," she said.

A Waffle House spokesman said that they are aware of the situation, but cannot comment on personnel matters.

Stanley said she was just following her instinct and would do the same thing again.

The robbery marks the third Waffle House robbery in Coweta County since September.

(How's that "dis-arming the restaurant" policy working for you so far, jerkasses? )

Authorities havenít said whether this latest robbery is connected with the other two.

The police report made no mention that the waitress would face charges.

Stanley, a mother of two, said losing her job is a huge blow to her family because she is the sole source of income.

"(Iím going to) take a step forward and keep moving on and try to find another job," said Stanley, who added that she has set up a GoFundMe page.
I'd rather she dispatched one of the "dindonuffins," than fire a warning shot. Warning shots never stop ANYTHING, and Lord only knows where they MIGHT land.

Looking back on it, I've probably eaten AT that location before, too!

It's been ages since I've stepped foot inside an Awful House. I guess I'll just keep adding to that time. I do not understand why these establishments are so quick to dismiss the only person who had enough gumption to actually do something besides wet themselves.

Would rather dead patrons than wounded ones.

I haven't pulled an all-nighter in a cotton mill since the summer of '90, either. Got my Master's Degree and a better job, and now I go to bed at night like normal people - like my boss back then did.
