But, when it is a small cost that could help people in need, it is hard to say no. One former fastfood employee tells about when their coworker called them out for giving extra food to an elderly couple and their grandchild, costing them their job.
I work or rather worked at a fast food place. A little over two weeks ago on a quiet evening at work, an old couple came in with who I assumed to be their granddaughter. They were all wearing matching knitted sweaters, and I remember thinking just how adorable they looked.
They deliberated for a bit while counting the money that they had then the old man ordered a kid's meal. I took their order and went to prepare it myself because we sometimes do this if it's quicker or for other reasons.
