    Sign at my work

    one of my jobs is at a grocery store
    went into the break room today and saw this new sign posted
    thought you guys would get a kick out of it
    sorry for the 3 separate pics, my phone didnt have a very good field of view







    For those with poor eye sight it says:

    Robbery Procedures
    1-Keep it quick
    2-Dont sound alarm in the presence of robber
    3-Never argue, fight with, or use weapons with robber
    4-Tell robber of any potential surprises
    5-Dont chase robber

    Id like to note there's no policy against weapons at my work though...

    It's a good thing that sign prohibits big ugly 1911 looking guns with no magazines.
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

    Ugly!!! A beautiful piece of machined steel is not ugly. Tupperware is ugly,

    Just kidding, as long as it goes boom when you pull the trigger it is good. Even better if it begins with 4 (grin).

    looks like a deagle to me.

    plus what would they do? fire you if you used it during a robbery? youd be a local hero and have no problem finding a new higher paying job, and make many people upset with that employer.

    "3-Never argue, fight with, or use weapons with robber" How about using your weapon "ON" the robber as in shooting the creep?

    Is there a picture of a fluffy little sheep dressed like a grocery checker on the sign?

    Maybe they should try prevention.

    [SARCASM]
    1. Go to door.
    2. Open door.
    3. Toss out all cash in store.
    4. Close door.

    For those of you who have never had a gun held to your head and/ or been robbed;
    That was sound advise, given with the intent of keeping people alive. It isn't quite as easy to be a hero with a gun barrel in your ear, as it is on the internet.

    Being a "sheep" has less than nothing to do with a business policy of cooperation during a robbery. It has everything to do with getting the BG away from the area as quickly as possible. Anyone knows that if "caps start popping" then all bets are off.

    Stating that management hasn't thought through this is incorrect. Ask any profession in LE or loss prevention and they will tell you the same thing.... cooperate. If someone is going to die in a robbery that is usually decided before the BG ever sets foot in the establishment, and there's little anyone can do to stop it.

    I am concerned someone could read some of these posts and falsely think cooperation is a bad policy. It isn't.
