On Thursday three robbers walked into The Waffle House in Newnan, Georgia and sat for a meal before they threatened to kill everyone in the restaurant.
When they left with their loot, employee Heather Burkinshaw-Stanley went to her car, pulled out her weapon, fired it into the air, and chased the would-be thieves, WSB-TV reported.
So did she get a raise? A bonus? Employee of the Month award? Or even a pat on the back?
No. She got a boot out the door as the restaurant chain fired the hero on Saturday.
“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,” she told WSB-TV.
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.
