There’s more to this story than meets the eye. This person’s job was a five-mile walk away from the store, and he didn’t have a car. That means he’d have to walk home five miles in the dark. No one wants to do that.
Furthermore, there must be a reason so many people are quitting. Maybe they all work for one of those horrible bosses that expects too much from them. At least this guy was honest and chose himself over the store, even though he put the store in a tough spot. It looks like they’re going to need to restaff everyone soon (via Food Is In The House).
