I filled out an application on lie. UGh. and to my surprise about 90 days later I got a call for an interview. They wanted me for a nursery position. NW Hwy store Garland/Dallas Texas. i thought to myself great. I went in for an interview and there were several other people. She was going to interview them for different positions. Great. She handed all of us some pre interview paperwork that we had to read and sign. Here is the deal…..
It ask the question, have you ever been convicted of a felony. They are supposed to go back in Tx 7 years on your history. But if you say no you are a liar and they will not hire you. If you say yeas they will not hire you. Now to set the record straight to everyone who says I am just a bad guy listen to what happened. When I was 23 years old I was a passenger with my brother and sister in law in a very tiny datsun pu truck.
We were returning from a pistol range when 4 people in a 4wd pu ran us into a ditch and the truck flipped twice. All of us got out of the truck with minor injuries and the truck sped off. After a few minutes the other truck came roaring up and 3 guys and 1 girl jumped out all with baseball bats. I was a 1st drgree black belt in 2 martial arts but smart enough to realize out numbered is out numbered. I grabbed my pistol and fired 3 times in the air.
Understand this was between sherman and Melissa Tx back when no one lived out there. They headed for the hills. 2 days later I got a call from my sister in law that the police called her. So I went to sherman and they showed me that 1 bullet actually came down and struck the truck 3/4 of a mile down the road and went through the top of the roof and into the seat. No one was injured. The odds of hit striking a truck moving 60+ mph was astronomical. But it happened.
I had to plead guilyt to Criminal Mischief over 1500 wich is a 3rd degree felony. I never spent a day or night in jail and got 10 years probation. But when the history is pulled up it says Agravated assault with a deadly weapon. That is the way Texas law is witten. But lowes will not look any further than that. Neither will any other employer even though Lowes says they will only go back 7 years. So they lie about their hiring peractices.
By the way I am 55 years old not and my only other violation was having a missing mud flap on my left rear wheel well on my pu truck. $320 fine.
