I got fired from a local supermarket around 3 years ago for paying £20 towards an elderly woman's shopping because she was short of the cash. I don't think I did anything wrong but apparently according to the company it's theft..

Well if it was your own money, then no, they shouldn't have fired you. But if you spent the 20 from the cash register, then it's quite obvious how they would see that as theft.

explanation is simple - you are a woman, the cashier is a man.

Today, a man at a local store finished his purchase and left $50 to pay for people behind him.

Having worked at a McD's myself and having done this and similar things... The reason you don't see this more often is because the management will fire employees for it. I used to bring out some of the left over food that's supposed to get thrown out and drive to where the homeless people hang out at night and give it to them. No charge, no expectation of any kind of return gesture.

I eventually got fired for 'stealing' food we were gonna be throwing out. It came to light that I was providing free food to local emergency services, basically ringing them up for employee meals after I was fired. I'm now perma-banned from all the franchise stores in my area(not that I care that much, I -know- what goes into the food after all). The system is set up to create asshole employees.

Karma. My friend, karma

But the employee payed in this case. He didn't give it away for free.
User avatar #44 to #4 - admiralen (01/16/2013) [-]
actually youre not allowed to do that since they would be held responsible if the hobo got sick from the food and could be sued
#5 to #4 - jakeattack (01/16/2013) [-]
well the system isnt desgined for that, thats the outcome. the system is desgined to make as much money as possible, while not giving a **** about the implications of that. its ******* stupid, but what i dont get is why after you got fired, did they ban you? like i can see getting fired, but wasnt sure what you meant after that.
#6 to #5 - saeuruk (01/16/2013) [-]
I got banned from ever coming in just because they found out I was ringing up police, EMT, and firedept orders as employee meals and giving them to them free(as my meals) or at cost (out of my pocket). The store manager didnt like it, even though it was franchise policy, and so told everyone not to. I got banned for it because it was the most the store manager could do without letting the owner know they were breaking policy.
#7 to #6 - jakeattack (01/16/2013) [-]
wait, so you were ringing up the orders as employee meals and sometimes paying them for yourself, this is after you got in trouble for giving away scraps? so isnt you just buying the food completely within policy?
#8 to #7 - saeuruk (01/16/2013) [-]
No i was doing this while i was still employed, i got fired for giving out the scraps. When the store manager found out I had done this while i was employed, less than a month later when one of the people i trained asked how to do it, I got banned, which also perma-bans me from getting a job at ANY other McD's pretty much. Not that I aspire to that job... but options are nice.
#9 to #8 - jakeattack (01/16/2013) [-]
ohh soo still, you were using employee free meals and paying for some to feed the homeless. if you are able to have free meals then i dont even see what the hell is wrong. once you take the food weather you eat it or save it for someone else is completely up to you.
#10 to #9 - saeuruk (01/16/2013) [-]
i was still 'stealing from the company' according to them
#11 to #10 - jakeattack (01/16/2013) [-]
but.......but.....but. if im correct, then getting a free meal occasionally from he company is completely fine, and so is paying for it obviously? but since you gave it to people who have no money or deserve something for ya know saving lives. they said thats stealing. so you eat the food, thats okay, you pay for the food and give it to less fortunate, not okay. thats the most ****** up thing ever.
#12 to #11 - saeuruk (01/16/2013) [-]
welcome to the system
#13 to #12 - jakeattack (01/16/2013) [-]
ya know start a fire in their store see how they like it when they want to punish someone for helping out the hard working fire department. funny how the fd still wouldnt care and still do their jobs, mcdonalds is just another greedy corporation.
#14 to #13 - saeuruk (01/16/2013) [-]
Its the mindset of greed, personal or corporate. Too many people forget that this is just a ride and doesnt matter.
#15 to #14 - jakeattack (01/16/2013) [-]
true, they aready make enough money, they look on paper and think oh yeah that rule looks good, but i hope that a normal person would think that would be an exception, and simply your superiors had to do something, or they would get fired. everyones following orders rather than looking whats right. thats the problem with any large establisment
#16 to #15 - saeuruk (01/16/2013) [-]
Its not just establishments, its people themselves that are the problem.
#17 to #16 - jakeattack (01/16/2013) [-]
damn man, that comic, especialy with my love of space, all the feels. the thing is i guess i hope the idea in your managers head is not that feeding homeless is bad, but that he will get in trouble for it, not that he cares if they lose money or not, which they arnt. but that he will get fired if he doesnt follow the rules set up to him. still, he could have let it go on, so his idea is still in greed itself, but i guess particular people are changed by these institutions, like in the comic about all the monsters that are around us, they change people. imagine your managers position, he could have risked his job and let you do your business, but he knows if hes fired hes screwed. im sure hes not a heartless person, but he has is own interests at heart, obviously any human wouldnt want to lose a good paying job. still he could have let you, but its the society we live in, he cant risk that but hes in a position of power, and he doesnt want to fall from it. i blame him but at the same time i see why he did it. the policy itself is stupid but i guess its a matter of not wanting to risk geting in trouble. the fact you did risk that for others shows a real high level or integrity and i commend you on that.

She* and she has no problem breaking the rules when she is benefiting from it. (Her daughter was a shift manager at the same store). She also broke policy about the FD, PD, and EMT, they are SUPPOSED to get food at cost according to our franchise owner, so its not like she 'wants to do the right thing' but cant due to policy, she was breaking policy in the first place. I didn't do what I thought was right, I did what I thought was human. But that is more than you can ask from a lot of people in this day and age.
#19 to #18 - jakeattack (01/16/2013) [-]
sigh, guess i had higher hopes for humanity. honestly, if i was given a choice between saving the world and letting it die, i know every urge would tell me save it, but would i realy want this horrible place to survive? at the same time i want to be a good person like you, you make think its just doing what is human, but that means alot nowadays
#20 to #19 - saeuruk (01/16/2013) [-]
You should always save it, because even if it is a horrible place... its an even more horrible thing to deny the innocents a chance to change it. I'm not innocent, but I try and make a difference when and where I can. Have higher hopes, humanity may one day reach them, but we aren't there yet.

I thought it was an ironic joke at first because of the grammar.
