    Don't take it so personally. An employee of Wal-Mart or any company at a 'manager level' position should NEVER have their brain and mouth so dis-engaged. That action was beyond moronic.

    It is readily apparent that stupidity infects people of all walks and stations in life; however the prognosis of there being no cure for this cursed condition is still true.

    I'm going to assume that you didn't pull your 1911. So good job for not panicking and turning the situation into something far worse for you.
    I would definitly take this up the food chain(no pun intended), and I probibly would have told him in not so nice terms what a jacknut he was.

    What would have been funny is the manager yelling, "Gun", and 20 customers drawing down on the guy.

    Wow. That was a bad joke that could have gone real bad. Good job not over reacting and restraining yourself from throttling the manager.

    I can't believe it took 28 posts for someone to come up with the correct answer.

    If the OP as an armed civilian would have drawn down on the "bad guy", he would have had a lot of explaining to do while hoping he didn't get a free ride to the pokey.

    You have every right to defend yourself. You do not however have a right to brandish a firearm if there is no credible threat. The proper action should have been to create some distance and assess the situation. Just because someone yells "fire" doesn't mean there is one.

    What if the "bad guy" was actually an LEO and you had actually drawn? You surely would have been facing the end of a gun barrel.

    I understand you did not draw and good on you, BUT you need to raise your awareness level and keep your cool. If you had drawn your weapon, you just might be facing the judge who is willing to withdraw your CCW permit.

    Was the manager an a-hole? Absolutely, and no doubt I would have filed a complaint with EVERY intention to see him get fired, but 2 wrongs still don't make a right.

    mattdillon, I don't deny that the action of the individual who worked in the store in the op was devoid of common sense. I have had a rough four days in the hospital with a very sick parent, so my nerves are frayed. However, dealing in broad generalizations regarding a group of people's intellectual/mental capacity who work in the service industry due to one person's bad choices is rather short sighted.

    I have it on competent authority that Walmart does not have a practice of hiring unemployed rocket scientists! I don't believe they seek out managers at the far right of the curve.
