A Fast Food Worker Stayed Calm, Cool, And Collected As A Robber Pointed A Gun At His Head

All that and a bag of chips

Many of us who haven’t had the misfortune of being mugged, robbed, or assaulted may wonder how we would react if we found ourselves on the business end of a weapon.

One cashier at a Jimmy Johns in Kansas City found out the hard way that if faced with that high stress scenario, he would be really, really chill.


Surveillance video of the encounter has surfaced and gone viral with many praising the cashier’s composure and patience, which could actually be misconstrued for indifference.

The following video doesn’t have sound, but it’s clear the robber demands the money, which the cashier turns over, offering up the entire till, which the robber empties before leaving.

The name of the cashier was initially kept under wraps, with the store’s manager refusing comment on the incident, but he was quickly tracked down by local media, who asked him about the incident and his impossibly laid-back response to the whole thing.

The suspect evaded ID and capture initially, but viral stardom isn’t exactly an asset for a fugitive criminal, so I’m sure we’ll be hearing his side of things quickly, because he’s been nabbed.

The Jimmy John’s cashier clearly excels at his job. Maybe the robber could step up his game and don a mask if he’s looking to turn this sort of activity into a career. Otherwise, he’ll have to deal with a significant setback in the form of a long prison stretch before continuing a life of crime.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
