Woman pulls gun on deliverymen for not taking shoes off

Two furniture deliverymen fled a home after a customer produced a gun because they wouldn't take their shoes off.

Two employees of Howell's Furniture Gallery were making a delivery to a house. The homeowner, who was not identified, asked the deliverymen to take off their shoes. They replied removing their shoes was against company policy and pointed out they were wearing protective covers so as not to damage her carpet, the report stated.

An argument ensued, which expanded to cover other problems the woman had with the store, and the woman got a handgun. The delivery men told police she never pointed the gun at them, but they left anyway and called police.
