    Wow. Not good, but nice that you were not there.

    Can you carry at your workplace?

    Something like that makes you so mad you wish you were there to stop it, and so freaked out that you're glad you weren't. Glad your co-workers weren't harmed.

    Note that they only took the money, no tacos.

    Tala, very glad your co-workers weren't hurt and you weren't there!
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    They only took cash. Didn't even take our store ipod that was also in the safe.

    My boss said one came in and sat in the lobby till it cleared out, only two customers were involved. While they were waiting, the one outside in the car called the police!!! To esitmate response time we presume. The cop spoke to the manager, used the restroom and left before they made their move. They collected all the cell phones and pocket knives and made the employees and customers lay in the floor back by the sink - that part would have scared the you know what out of me. It was well thought out and planned!

    No we are not allowed to carry. I always have said "you gotta be alive to get fired" but I'm having wardrobe/concealment problems with the uniform. May invest in another holster that I can't afford next payday though.

    By the looks of their wardrobe... It looks as though they prefer twinkies.

    Well rules or no rules...your employer proved without a shadow of a doubt NO ONE THERE IS SAFE when the BG's come in and change the rules. If just 2 CC people w/training had of been there it very well could have went south for that scum. DID the bad guys have guns or just intimidation?

    I think I would have quit the next day AFTER TELLING THE BOSS 2 GO 2 hell.Or I'd carry anyway.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    Yes the police said they brandished a pistol.

    Nice setiments, but jobs are scarce here and I'm keeping mine until I find a better one. I've got a LOT on my plate right now and at least my job is steady.
