Who knew that being a District Manager for a Tax company could be so dangerous. As I sat at my desk in one of my stores on Friday afternoon I was caught off guard by the sound of semi automatic gunfire. I was shocked at he noise but wasn't really convinced as it did not sound like the movies at all. I didn't fully believe what I had heard until I saw people out on the sidewalk go running for cover. Instinctively I told my employee that was working with me to hide in the bathroom but as she was heading in that direction we heard tires squeal as the robbers left the scene. Apparently an armored car guard had been robbed at gunpoint at the store right next to us. The guard offered no resistance but these filthy animals felt it necessary to shoot at him as they jumped in the getaway car. Two machine guns were fired and these losers were only able to graze the guard in the hip. The whole scene was surreal and it really didn't register in my mind what actually happened until later in the day. I had a busy weekend and was able to keep my mind off the entire ordeal but I am sure that I will be very jumpy to loud noises for a while. I want hazard pay and I think we need to add kevlar vests to our uniform ordering guide.
