    Just because someone had been addressed about an issue before did not indicate grounds for termination did not indicate that they were worthless morons in need of firing.

    In this case, I have a friend who has several CFA franchises in OH - his understanding was that there had been prior issues with this franchise owner being very overbearing with associates, and corporate had been working with him to improve his leadership skills, along with his managers.
    I understand this, but I also had several stores in upstate New York, and while we had protocol for proper termination, certain things were grounds for immediate dismissal, and being lax with company funds was one of them.

    As far as leadership skills and managers, this really has nothing to do with it. She was warned previously (who knows which level of warning she was on?) and failed to follow through on the very thing she was warned about. That has nothing to do with who her manager was - only that she failed to follow through on what she'd already been warned about at least once.

    Really, if she did pay it back, she shouldn't be fired. There was no harm done to the company.
    I agree with your first sentence. She shouldn't be expected to pay it back.

    The second one, I disagree with. She is showing a pattern of carelessness with company funds.

    Well you learn something new every day. Surprised you found that all the way from Seattle... your Google-fu must be strong.


    I'd hazard a guess that robbery was before their current highly armed setup, and probably the cause of it.

    Anytime someone mentions the South and not being robbed for quite some time, the 70's always pops into my head as that was a pretty major decade for robberies. Firearms were so much easier to acquire back then, for everyone, which lead to a lot of daring robberies.

    I'd also like to know if the shotgun squad is even still around, that'd be fascinating.

    It's true, the 70s were flat out crazy. I was a teenager and remember it well... seemed like the world was a battle zone and everyone ready to fight at the drop of a hat.

    I'd debate whether ease of firearm acquisition really had much if anything to do with it... it's not like that's changed much for those willing to break the law to obtain same.

    It just seemed like almost everyone was freaking crazy for a while. Possibly had to do with what a "dark" time that was, between the "energy crisis", the "misery index", Three Mile Island, the USSR attempting to expand again and rattling sabers like mad, the Iran Hostage Crisis, gas lines... it was a nutty time to grow up.

    Yeah, that was the part that shouldn't have been said and what led to the backlash. Since this wasn't her first offense for not doing her job right, and this time it cost the company additional money, I think they could have justly fired her. But the whole "pay back this money or you're fired" ultimatum was unnecessary.

    I'm going to pull a few things from Wiki, but I agree the 70's were just crazy as all hell.

    This is the kind of stuff that showed up in the 80s:

    Firearm Owners Protection Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Federal Assault Weapons Ban - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    There are several more and while I don't agree with all of the, they really limited the potential randomness of the ability to acquire them.

    Well, the "assault weapons ban" is gone and done, history.
    The Brady Act is all very well but as an ex-cop I can tell you has had little impact on felons getting firearms.
    Meanwhile the number of firearms in circulation has actually increased dramatically, while around 40 states adopted shall-issue CWP, and yet violent crime continues to trend downward as it has ever since the early 80s.

    Not wanting to derail the thread but I see little evidence of a causal link.
