How is the boss an ass? SOMEONE has to take care of the store, and the manager can't really call up the other employees in the middle of the night asking if they want extra hours NOW. He could close the entire store down for a few hours but those kinds of places have all kinds of 24hours advertising, so that might not be wise. At least he tried to be encouraging about it instead of telling OP to suck it up or something similar.
The manager might not be able to call others to work. But he can work himself. When I got robbed on my shift we closed the shop. It's as simple as that, and I was offered crisis-therapy. Standard offer here, and not once did I hear anything about having to finish my shift. F the manager, sue his ass!

Grow up. If you can't deal with your crappy job, get a better one. What was he supposed to do? Pay for someone to come babysit you because you are over emotional? If the job took two people, I am sure he would have scheduled two people. Why should you being a crappy employee cut into his profits more than your two hours of over reaction already did?
This is not a very fair assumption to make. I was robbed at gunpoint while also working at a video store. Even the men I was working with were traumatized and upset - some employees even went on stress leave after the incident. I couldn't even imagine being in the store by myself when it happened. How awful! And for her boss to not let her go home - that is terrible. Being threatened and robbed is not something you just get over. Have some compassion, you cold-hearted fools. ps. I agree with #11. He would owe you that much.
Lol I would LOVE to see what you would do if you had a gun to your head. If the robber told you to suck his hot dog, you would like it was the best hot dog in the world. Don't talk down to people because it didn't happen to you. You are sitting at home in a chair typing on the computer like some bad ass. Your statement is just pathetic.
Lol, your boss is an ass and I'd quit. FYL
Don't worry. Video stores will soon become extinct. You'll be out of a job in no time.
