      Wow, she’s 46?? Looks more like 64, I am a manager too, responsible for deposits, not at a store, but still, if I had been robbed, my first call would be to police, my second to my employer!! You just DON’T not contact your boss or law enforcement! That alone makes her seem totally guilty!!

    Seriously??? This woman looks terrible. And to think I applied for a managers position with that company. I have PLENTY of experience, yet was turned down for even an interview. But THAT woman is the manager??? Wow. SMH. Obviously they would rather hire a drug user. Blah.

    Hold up people, I have to say something here. Let me explain some things here to you hypocrites, #1 I’ll start with the comment on looks, first of all, she should have returned to the store if this did happen, I as well as everyone else don’t believe that for one second, but her looks should not have anything to do with her position. #2 Your looks and age, as well as the crime committed does not mean this lady is a drug user, we all have issues, I was robbed in my home on Oct. 6th at gunpoint, my tv’s, laptop, rent, was taken and I called the police and reported it, so yes she would have returned if it happened, Your circumstances surrounding what you do and have done, do not always reflect drug abuse or anything like that. So for the ones who are saying these things remember, if the shoe was on the other foot and you were not a drug user, would you appreciate people saying that, after all they would already be speaking of the crime you did actually commit.

    I in no way know this person in this article or do I condone her actions. I am also not saying in any way, shape, or form that the circumstances leading to this were not drugs, I’m just stating that it isn’t in the article about drugs, so that means they are not in play here, that is all.

    Hypocrites?? They may be mis-judging or sterotyping this women but the term hypocrite really does not fit the bill. A hypocrite is a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess. You dont know them to make that call meaning that you did EXACTALLY the same thing that they did by passing a unjustified judgement, now THAT is hypocritical.

    Doesn’t this store do random drug screens? Most employers do these days, so maybe judging too harshly just on looks. BUT that still does not excuse the crime. YES, any sane or innocent person who had been robbed of money or anything else would normally IMMDIATELY call the police not “text” that they had been robbed after “numerous” attempts at contact from their supervisor.
