Apparently, Wal-Mart is also in the business of rolling back logic. A Hartland, MI branch of the community-killing “big-box” store has made a surprising move after a brave employee jumped to a woman’s rescue at around 2:30 am outside the store.
Kristopher Oswald, who had been working at the store stocking pet food on the overnight shift for about seven weeks. He was enjoying his lunch break when he heard a woman screaming, and saw a man hanging on the hood of her car.
According to Kris, the woman got out of her car and tried to force the man off of it. The man jumped off the car, grabbed the woman, and forced her up against it. When Oswald attempted to intervene, the man attacked him. Kris overpowered him, and two others came at Kris from behind. He says that Sheriffs deputies were quick to arrive.
However, Wal-Mart’s next move surprised him. Kris was terminated for “a violation of company policy on his lunch break.” Kris explains that it was a “temporary assignment” because there was a 180 day probationary period.
Kristopher says that he doesn’t even know what to put on an application “about all this.”
“How do I say this ended?”
While Wal-Mart may feel that it is a “violation of company policy” to help someone who is in need, Kristopher is resolved to always do the right thing. Good man, Kris. Good man.
