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!

Definitely a shitty experience. I'd make sure wherever you work you carry a can of Mace or a taser. Won't really do much but I'm sure you could use the extra security if you're working alone again.

haha because it's going to be robbed again? Yeah it sucks and there's probably emotional stuff but the chances of it getting robbed again are slim to none..plus the OP didn't die..thats always a plus

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?

it's not an overreaction....I would be scared shitless...a girl alone at night in a store that just got held up...Usually women aren't even allowed to work at night in gas stations and such. It's an EXTREMELY scary thing. People get raped and murdered everyday.

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.

Today, I went for a really important job interview. She loved my portfolio and we got along really well. But I guess that a corner of my skirt got caught underneath my shoe when I stood up to shake her hand, exposing my teeny-tiny underwear and neglected bikini line. She didn't shake my hand back. FML
