Probably Not Fraud Just Stupid

Armed Waffle House Employee Turns to GoFundMe to Pay For Her Stupid Mistake

Waffle House shooting GoFundMe

Dateline: Newnan, GA. Last Thursday, three men ate their meal at a local Waffle House and then, in lieu of payment, passed a note to the waitress stating that the restaurant would get shot the hell up if they didn’t receive all the money in the cash register. They got a measly $200 and took off on foot.

That’s when employee Heather “Shorty” Burkinshaw-Stanley ran out to her car, retrieved her gun, and “safely fired a round in the air in an attempt to scare the robbers,” according to her GoFundMe campaign.

Yeah, about that. There is no such thing as “safely” firing into the air in this case. Ask the parents of toddlers who have died due to this very thing.

Miami-Dade Commissioner Audrey Edmonson just said not a few days before this incident that “the dangers of shooting a gun into the air should be obvious.” In other words, what goes up must come down.

After her split-second dumbass decision out of her and her coworkers’ safety (oof), she was promptly fired. It’s worth noting that Waffle House maintains a strict no-gun policy across all 1800 restaurants.

So, finding herself out of a job she did what everyone does these days and started a GoFundMe campaign to benefit herself. The campaign has since been closed to donations and therefore only donors can access its original text, but y’all know we’re on top of our shit and saved an archived copy before it disappeared.

The campaign read:

Hi my name is Heather, AKA Shorty for those who know me from Waffle house.  As you know last Thursday morning approixmatly 2:35 AM the Waffle House I worked at was robbed. The robbers gave a note to one of my coworkers instructing her give all of the money from the register or they would come back and shoot everyone. In the heat of the moment, as the robbers left, I ran to my car and retrieved my gun. I safely fired a round in the air in an attempt to scare the robbers who were in the process of getting in their vehicle. Not knowing if they were retrieving their weapon to return to the Waffle House. My shot must have gotten their attention as they rapidly drove off. Due to this action of firing a round safely in the air I have lost my job.  I am a mother of three childern and have a disabled husband. Being the sole income, short term assistance would be welcomed to help  make ends meet until I can secure another job. Any and all donations would be graciously appreiciated. Monies raised will be used to pay for heat and utilites. As well as any care that my family may require until I can find employment.  I am actively seeking work.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.  May God bless.

She received $7401 and a shit ton of comments before it was closed.

For the most part, idiots with no concept of gun safety praised her for her quick thinking that could have killed someone but hey bless her heart for doing it anyway. Or something.

Authorities are still searching for the three men responsible for the robbery. As far as we know, Shorty is still unemployed, but $7401 richer for it.

    Whoever wrote all of this shit here can go fuck themselves. Three no good niggers threatened to murder everybody inside this Waffle House. That is a fact. The place where this Waffle House is located in Georgia is in a commercially zoned area with a huge patch of woods behind it, and no private homes around there either, and this low-paid waitress fired her warning shot after 2:30 AM – this also means about zero chance of anybody just randomly being anywhere within about a mile of where she fired her shot. These are all also facts. If Waffle House maintained a strict no-nigger policy across all of its restaurants, nobody working there would even need to worry about armed robbers there passing death threat notes. In closing, whoever wrote this shitty page can go fuck off again.

    • Wow, Earl, you sound like a wonderful person.

      And you are clearly uneducated white trash. I guess, no big loss if the bullet would’ve come down on your thick head then?

      And, for what it’s worth. I am white. I am not however hate-filled, racist, or uneducated. I’m also not a low-life who is so insecure that I feel threatened by anyone who doesn’t look or think like me. Nor do I need to look down on others to feel better about myself.

      Aw….hell….that’s not true. I look down on you, Earl. It’s hard not to. You have no class.

    I’m thinking she had no experience with shooting a gun, if she would have discharged it straight up into the sky, it probably wouldnt have come down so hard, but she discharged it at an agnle which created enough velocity to kill a toddler

  3. Jason

    actually no one was supposebly hit, so she didnt do nothing wrong, its not her fault she lives in a rogue community, like the bronx or somewhere, like the African Safari, how many times is it going to take us to actually realize the shit plague

    I wonder what CNN is gonna say about this, “3 gentlemen politely asked if they can have bus fare then the clerk went berserk & the $200 went missing by accident”

    It’s nice to see Trump supporters like Earl and Jason can figure out which end of their computers to blow into to make ’em work. “She didn’t do nothing wrong”. Oh…boy. A lot of talk about niggers and implying that these “niggers” wouldn’t talk proper-like should you engage them in a little light conversation. I’m not even sure if “them guys” were “niggers”, since I never heard about this story until now. Wonder what Earl refers to low class White people as? Mom and Dad?
