Evil Generous People Fired: Tim Horton's Strikes Back!

A woman at a Tim Horton's in Toronto was fired for giving a kid a free Timbit (worth an astounding 16 cents), but when bigwigs at the corporation, I guess, heard a stink had been raised, they began claiming it was an overzealous manager and the backpedaling began.

I SAY BULLSHIT. (Don't just take my word for it; the story is here.)

See, the woman was caught on the camera, which poor unsuspecting employees believe are there to catch armed robbers in the act, but the truth is, it's to bust the employees, too.

My brother was fired back in the late '80s from, yes, a Tim Horton's, when he too was caught on camera doing the despicable act of... wait for it... wait for it... giving a homeless guy a FREE REFILL of (gasp!) old coffee that was about to be dumped. Yes, costing the company a whopping 35 cents in a generous act of good will using soon-to-be-discarded product was enough to get your ass fired then, and is likely still quite liable to get your ass fired now.

Unless, of course, you go running to the media and the fucking bastards get exposed for the cheap-ass swine they are.
