Pizza Delivery driver fired for helping gun shot victim

Now for my bullshit, are you kidding me post.

CANADIAN PRESS

SELKIRK, MAN.—A single mother who was fired from her part-time job delivering pizza after she helped a gunshot victim on company time doesn't regret her actions.

"Walking away, I just wouldn't have been able to live with myself," Marcella McAulay, 34, said yesterday.

McAulay was on a shift for Frank's Pizza in Selkirk, some 30 kilometres north of Winnipeg, on Feb. 26 when a friend who was riding with her received a call that there had been a shooting near her home.

McAulay planned to drop her friend off, but the situation escalated quickly when she stopped her car near the shooting scene.

"One of the victims opened up the door and yelled at me to come and help him. Another man was on the floor and was bleeding quite badly," she said.

McAulay rushed into the house to help. She sat with the man who was shot, kept him awake and pressed pillows on his wound to slow the bleeding.

After paramedics and RCMP arrived, McAulay was held up for several more hours because she had to give a statement.

When she returned to the restaurant, she was fired. Yesterday she received her severance slip.

"We feel just as bad as the next guy, but we don't pay employees to be EMTs (emergency medical technicians), which she isn't," supervisor Jason Boyd told the Selkirk Journal last week.

Boyd said he didn't fire McAulay for helping the gunshot victim. "She was away from her job for no good reason." The owners of Frank's Pizza could not be reached for comment yesterday.

The victim is recovering. A 33-year-old man has been charged.

  • Yeah, the article is misleading.. she clearly got fired for driving her friend around on company time, not for helping the gunshot victim.. the manager sounds like a douche though for saying "We feel just as bad as the next guy, but we don't pay employees to be EMTs (emergency medical technicians), which she isn't," His ass should be canned for bad PR statements.

    • @HeyMaker84 he contradicted himself. he said he doesn't pay his employees to do what she did. simple solution: dock her for the time she spent helping another human out. not fire her. someone should send him some anthrax first class.

  • I just phoned Frank's and was told by the manager that this incident happened 10 years ago. The woman was not delivering a pizza to the house but buying drugs at her dealers when the shooting occurred. She was on thin ice previous to this incident because of her addictions. There was an apology printed a month after the incident for making the store policy look egregious.
    So the poll is a little lop-sided.

    D) FIRE HER! If she was doing her job this wouldn't have happened

  • You wouldn't fire someone for that alone. You just wouldn't. But you do get those employees who just fuck around all shift, take 2 hours to deliver to 2 houses because they're visiting their friends or shopping or whatever, call in sick every other day, and generally make life miserable for you and everyone else who works there.

    As stated in the story, she was off her delivery route: "a friend who was riding with her received a call". What the fuck? I work in an office, and I don' More..

  • In my opinion, the woman is a hero and her former employer is a pig. Boycotting his pizzaria is very well called for.

  • Reinstate her and fire the asshat manager, who most likely isn't worth a shit as a human, much less a manager of a fast-food pizza joint.
    Put his ass on the street and reinstate her.

  • She did the right thing to help someone, but at a pizza delivery job you can't have people ride along with you and you can't drive all around town wherever you want.

    I delivered pizzas for over 2 year when I was 18. They told me that if I got robbed I wasn't allowed to defend myself and that I would have to pay back any money that was stolen from me.

    I'm gonna go order some pizza right now and give a big tip.
