Manager Sprays Shoplifter With Febreze Air Freshener
Febreze not only freshens up your home’s smellier spaces…it doubles as improvised mase during a confrontation! Peep the video:
You can just tell that curse-out and floral freshness attack came from the sheer frustration of working a long shift and dealing with unforeseen levels of ratchetness. Unfortunately, looks like the hilarious confrontation got this manager fired. He was only trying to protect his store’s merchandise! Via TMZ:
Girrrrl … the dollar store manager who got famous on the Internet for spraying Febreze in the face of an alleged shoplifter … is now famously unemployed — TMZ has learned the guy got fired.
The video is damn entertaining — Gavyn Edlinger, the manager at Family Dollar in Saginaw, Mich. confronted a few alleged shoplifters (one of whom was pregnant) in the parking lot last week. It quickly turned into screaming, yelling, the Febreze spray and this classic line — “Bitch, what I want you to do is do something. I will whoop yo’ ass!”
Gavyn tells TMZ he was canned six days after the confrontation — and it probably didn’t help that it blew up on the web.
Edlinger called the incident an unfortunate scene and claims the mother of one of the girls in the video called the store to apologize. He says he tried to have the video taken down, but when the guy refused … he decided to just own it.
Should look good on his resumé.
The Internet will fawk you up every time! But you know how this viral stuff goes…wouldn’t be surprised if Febreze found a way to offer him a check for his troubles.
