lady loses job over a 16 cent doughnut hole


tim hortons lighten the feck up.
a nice young girl working at tim horton's decides to give a small child of a regular customer a $0.16 timbit. she was then fired for breaking tim horton's policy of not giving away food.

tim horton's made $61.8 million dollars in the first quarter of 2008.

nicole lilliman gave away a $0.16 item.

canada revolted across the country and skipped their morning coffee yesterday in protest.
by 9am this morning nicole had her job back but at a different location.

tim horton's does not currently have a company wide policy on giving away timbits.
i have no idea what happend but if you click the box below the tittle it's a link to the story.

i'm going to go hang myself now. wake me when someone gets arrested.

Wow. A frickin' donut hole? There is a family owned Bakery in our town that has donut holes on the counter available EVERY day for people to try free of charge. I bet a million dollars if I went in every day and ate one of those free donut holes nobody that owns/works there would say a damn thing. That's the dif between a family business and a corporation -basic human decency.

The silly thing really isn't what happened...it's the fact that it was ALL OVER the news last night.

I just went to Canada for the first time last year. I'm proud I even know what Tim Horton is. Woohoo.

well I am glad everyone stood up in the woman's defense. People are such dongoloids.

Yikes, that reminds me of a lot of McDonald's policies. My high school band had a fundraiser there one night where many of us were required to actually work at the local McDonalds...it became clear within five minutes that McDonald's management is set up to eliminate all possibilities of employee theft, and you immediately feel very distrusted. I didnt like that feeling at all! But I guess they don't get rich like that by being lax...

trix..sorry bad fish...i worked at McDicks for 3 months. they could teach wardens a thing or two about being orderly,efficient and stopping theft. it was nuts working there and a lot of fun but ya $4.10/hour to smell like grease and having the McComplexion full of zits was not worth it.

Jewels said...

LMFAO!
McComplexion! LOL!
And I thought we were the only ones who added Mc in front of everything.

Wow. Timbits are just 12 cents here. Holly Molly, eh? ;)

Oh, and I'm not sure the policy is the same in every T.H. They're all privately owned. During a recent fire scare in our appartment building, at least 1/4 of the tennants wound up there, and they were quite generous to us. Free tea, and a donut for the little one. (a whole one, not a hole one!)
I'm guessing the public is perhaps not aware that it might not be in fact 'Tim Horton's' that took her back, but 'a' T.H., to kind of assuage the masses... But hey! That's how the machine runs, right?

jax said...

lol oh for sure.
i still rememeber a pervy boss asked me if i got McLaid on the weekend. I reminded him I was 15 and could he kindly Mcfuck himself.
the end...

12cents??? you in TO? prob cheaper as it all comes from east,we probably pay a fuckin fuel surcharge for that 16 cent rolled up lard dipped in lard,fried in fat,rolled in sugar goodness.

Very nearly caused my McHubby to choke on his McShake when I made a comment about all the McGulls hanging out outside, hunting for McGargabe...

It was an ongoing joke with us, how we could always find the nearest McDonalds by the flocks of 'McGulls' swirling above.

I just LOL'd @ u telling ur boss to McFuck himself! Too funny!
Now if you'll excuse me, I think I'll go get myself one of those yummy rolled up lard dipped in lard,fried in fat,rolled in sugar goodness morsels. Mmmmmmmm, Sour Cream Glazed for Moi! ;)
