Just like everyone won't watch the NFL until they fire Costas... right, I get it. What will happen is they won't shop there until they are the only ones who have the part they need/want. Perhaps postponing is a better word... they may be shopping across the street now, but it'll wear off quick when they need something and Autozone is the only place that has it.
Look, I'm not against what he did and I'm not glad he got fired... but there's another side to it, and not everyone would handle it the same way. Heck, I don't even know if I'd handle it how I say I would having time to think about it and write/edit my thoughts.
He possibly saved his manager's life, who is also a friend apparently... no lives lost, that's a win.

What they don't realize is that it generates ad revenue and bumps their 'viral' status on Facebook so they get more ads, higher positioning in hits.
Responding to everything Autozone posts on their wall isn't a good idea, just like their stores - leave it empty.
Just ran past two Autozones (I swear there is one on every block in San Antonio!).....doing fine it looks like to me. Plenty of cars in their parking lots. Their stock has fallen slightly but that is becuase of financial news....not a boycott.
Boycots are great and a great way of protesting but sadly they lead to nowhere in the end.
This is still mostly an east coast story. Give it time for the shock wave to really travel. Devin is still doing interviews. He did the Greta Van Susteren interview last night and I'm setting up a radio interview for him now with Eagle 97.3.
Update. He will be in NY this weekend and will appear on the CBS This Morning show.
Hes a hero in my book..... If it was me i would of givin him a raise and hired him as security guard for extra money...no one should lose there job nor be punished for doing a good deed (saving lifes or property loss)... Eddie
ETA: Colleen, if Devin is being portrayed as a hero by the media, and friends and family, then why do you care what a few people on an online forum think? And don't say you don't care. Your hostile responses to those who disagree with you is proof that you care deeply.
Just caught the Hmmm, you're new here......... trust me, if I were his publicist, I would pick a much larger and more well known forum than this one. I just came across this forum yesterday when I Googled to see what other news stations and webpages had picked up the story. I saw the story had been posted here, yup, this forum actually showed up on the search list, go figure, so I stopped in.
Something tells me he's doing quite well, and better off than he was working at Autozone, at least for now.
I hope so anyway.

I only cared because he was being used as an example for how to do the wrong thing. You have to be pretty sensitive to consider my comments to be hostile but whatever. I have heard that sensitive men do exist. Just never really met any until.............
Meh, the same garbage is parroted in our schools. Kid gets bullied, kid fights back against the bully, they both get in trouble. It applies here too. It's aggravating. This guy should get a medal, not a pink slip.
She is talking about me LOL:danceban:
