    Man Fired From Big Boy for Being Too Big...

    A big man says a Big Boy's restaurant fired him because he couldn't fit into their uniform.



    Tipping the scales at 349 pounds, Charles Compton would be the first to admit he's a large guy, but can't believe what happened to him. The married father of three has worked in several restaurants, and when a new Big Boy's restaurant opened up in Winchester, Kentucky, he applied for a job and was hired. Compton was provided with a hat and a shirt sized 2x. However, when he told his manager the shirt was too small, he was told he couldn't work there because they don't have any larger uniforms.

    "I went in there and told them the shirt didn't fit they said, 'Well we can't employ you if the shirt don't fit. That's the biggest we have,'" said Compton.

    Compton says what's even worse is he quit another job to take this one. When the manager of Big Boy's called Compton and apologized, they offered him a new shirt and a new job. Compton told them he was no longer interested.

    Jesus, in the old days if that guy wore a blue suit and a yellow hat - people would drive up to him and drop off their film.
