An Arby's assistant manager (not at the Arby's shown in this file image) was fired after she escaped an armed robbery by slipping out the drive-thru window.

An Arby’s assistant manager escaped an armed robbery but lost her job. Apparently it's against company policy to run for your life. 

Mary Archer, 56, was closing up an Arby’s store in Fairborn, Ohio, around 1 a.m. Friday when a man with a knife confronted her, News Center 7 reported. Archer was able to get away from the robber by fleeing through the restaurant’s drive-thru window.

Arby’s corporate heads later claimed Archer violated company policy, which states that there must be two or more employees in the store at all times, News Center 7 said.

Archer’s daughter told News Center 7 that the incident was the third robbery attempt in the past six months, and that her mother was on duty each time.

Archer, who's worked at Arby's for nearly 23 years, said she doesn’t want her job back.
