    As a veteran I hate when people throw being a veteran in your face, because no one cares. If people cared that he was a veteran he wouldn`t be working at wal-mart. Just take your 10% off at home depo or Low`s and be happy.

    I am so tired of the "No body can disrespect me" mentality. What have any of the people who use that phrase ever done to earn some respect? I disrespect all of them, collectively. And of course he had to throw out the race card early calling the manager a racist.

    A veteran? Probably dishonorable discharge.

    The race card and being a veteran have nothing to do with what I think they were talking about. Lousy defenses and disrespectful. As soon as they are deployed understand that the person using them is in a weak position and out of resources. If they are not wrapped too tight or fearful (like getting fired) violence is likely to happen. The manager handled his employee wrong. All he did was to escalate the situation. If he has a problem with an employee, he should talk to him about it in private, not in the break room with and audience. Looks like the employee is going to be doing some jail time for assault.

    didnt he know that walmart gives barely gives two poos about him being a vet? and yes walmart`s practices are well known to slant to a racist/sexist mentality. they simply dont care. they make billions daily, they give next to nothing back, in fact, they encourage employees to take up food stamps/welfare to make ends meet since you will never get more than 35 hrs. per week. and there idea to fix a employees problem is to fire them. sad to say he is better off on the street. this is the world they helped create.

    "A veteran? Probably dishonorable discharge."

    I was thinking the same thing. I always wondered how many of the turds who get dishonorably discharged go and parade around with the "I`m a veteran I deserve respect" mentality. Actually, they`re probably the only ones that do that.

    Good God. So we just had a trial asking if Trayvon was justified in attacking Zimmerman. some said yes, but I can guarantee you that Zimmerman didn`t get in his face like this manager did. So, those of you who thought Trayvon`s violent response was acceptable, was it? Was it?

    @Gerry... I completely agree with you on that. The black guy was being so aggressive, shouting at the manager and following him about he tried to walk away to get space. Calling anyone at your work place a racist even during a heated debate should be treated as inappropriate language in the workplace and the guy should have been suspended and marched out of the place well before he had a chance to hit him.

    First off, everyone making any references to Trayvon and Zimmerman are morons.

    This has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with it. It`s a boss and employee fighting. That`s all.

    With that here`s my 2 cents:

    The employee obviously needs to be in jail, fired, and sued.

    With that written, that manager is a complete failure as a supervisor. I`ve managed businesses for years and everything he did was the wrong move.

    You never fight with an employee period, but if you`re dumb enough to fall with into an argument with one NEVER do it the break room!

    "the guy thinks he can safely degrade people because he`s the manager of a Walmart. Bet he won`t be degradin` any more."

    Since there`s no back-story (except the one guy saying something about shopping carts) to go along with this video, please tell me how you came to that conclusion. How do you know the manager was degrading the employee for the hell of it? Maybe the employee didn`t do his job right and the manager was letting that be known so the guy got pissed because he got caught slacking off and lying about it. Then decides to call the boss racist, because well... I`m not surprised he did, the race card is always the first one that`s pulled, and then sucker punch a man who`s half his size and quit. I bet he went down to the Dept of Labor to file for unemployment too and when Walmart contests the claim saying he assaulted the manager he`ll say no, he got fired because the boss is racist.

    I worked at Target once and was on the overnight shifts, usually (2am-8am) unloading trucks & restocking the shelves. Most of the guys were cool, combined we were from every ethnic background you could imagine, but there was one black guy, kind of like the one in this clip. He used to disappear for 2 hours every shift and no one knew where the f*ck he was then one day someone finally found him. He`d go to a spot in the warehouse and sleep behind shelves, boxes & pallets every night. The manager was called and was the one that woke his lazy ass up and told him to go home and wait for a call from HR as to whether or not he still had a job. He immediately got in the managers face and started screaming at him saying he was being sent home because he was black and had to be restrained by myself and 2 others. Needless to say, he was fired, but I think that`s relevant to this because the first thing out of his mouth when caught was that the boss was racist.

    Sounds like a guy we had on the night shift last year, big black chap, he disappeared for two or so hours most nights, not on my section, on the swarf plant, sh it was piling up, and I was getting crap from the managers in the morning, dont like dropping folk in the poo, but I had no option, he went crazy, and called me a racist, even though I work quite happily with Polish, Indian,Bulgarian, and a Nigerian on nights
    called him out on sleeping in the toilets, and went all `have a lot of stress at home`

    He needs some jail time, and the supervisor needs some training time.

    As for the veteran thing, in basic training this would be classed as a polite conversation...they try and wind you up all the time to see if you can`t control your anger. So there are people in the forces who lose their temper easily, but they tend not to have lasted long, and usually it`s an admin (dishonorable) discharge when they leave. At least 50% of being a professional soldier is sucking up whatever poo is around you and not letting it get to you.

    And yeah, the early use of the racist allegation, doesn`t look too great.....fair enough, there may be a back story to it that`s not on the clip, but even so work is work...if it was fun all the time it would be called a hobby and not work. Sometimes you just gotta soak it up and get on with it - not hit colleagues just because they`re handling a situation badly too.

    This "manager" did nothing to diffuse the situation. He should not have reprimanded his employee in front of the others like he did. He should have taken this guy aside and spoke to him privately. He didn`t deserve what he got, but he did light a fuse.

    The Race Card is Over! It doesn`t work any more. Everyone`s figured out it`s BS.

    Had a guy on our shift at a manufacturing plant. Every night for 5 nights he`d fall asleep on the job and his machine would get jammed up. The line would come to a halt and maintenence would have to come down to un-jam it. This guy happened to be black (no, he wasn`t lazy because he`s black, he was just a lazy guy who happened to be black).

    On the fifth night his supervisor (who happened to be white) and another supervisor (who happened to be black) took him on the carpet.

    White super: "You are the laziest MF in this plant!"
    Black super (to white super): "I didn`t know you was racist!" (WTF?)

    @Wendypants - if you`re going to be the Grammar Nazi, then you might want to double-check your facts before posting. "Racist" may correctly be used as a noun, to refer to a person. In fact, it was used as a noun before it was used as an adjective. And, ironically, it first appeared "in the context of Nazi theories".

    Management 101;

    # When reprimanding an employee do it in the break area in front of other employees. Make sure everyone can hear and film it for uploading.

    # Freely use abusive language (liar, for example) repeatedly and loudly.

    # If the employee shows signs of anger or aggression up the ante by wandering around, getting coffee and generally emphasising that the question of their dismissal/continued employment is massively beneath you.

    # Be astonished when punched out.

    The guy was quite likely a lazy employee and should face criminal charges for assault and ABH. The manager is an incompetent wanker.

    2011 from october to november i worked at my local walmart 5 days a week 11pm to 7am. i mainly stocked shelves and used a scanny thing to scan in new inventory items. the building was too small to hold all the inventory for a walmart supercentre. the back loading room was overflowing with overstock to the point it was getting difficult to maneuver the forklifts around the overstocked pallets. we were storing toys in refrigerated units. the back room had no room, and as a result the store was always a mess. no matter how hard they tried, the night managers could never get the store up to standards by the morning. and every morning right by the entrance as customers walked in, the store manager would be yelling at the poor night managers. i remember the sad pathetic looks on the night managers faces. if it was wrong for this manager to get hit in the face, then why did watching it feel so good?

    @LorgJim: as a fellow manager dude, I think the man was well within his rights to call him out for being a liar, especially after how this man acted. He attempted to emasculate his superior in front of his subordinates, and he needed to be dealt with. Too bad he didn`t shoot his loud punk ass. F.uck that. I`ve bounced his kind right up out of the vicinity, got just as loud, I don`t play around. My respect is earned.

    Btw: "Sambo" is a character from a Rudyard Kipling story about an Indian boy who outsmarted a deadly tiger and provided sustenance for his entire family.

    First, it seems to me the name would be a compliment.
    Second, Apply it to "Africans" is the wrong ethnicity.
