In another example of people going overboard, a single mother of four kids was fired from her job at Tim Hortons when it was discovered she gave one timbit (retail price of 16 cents) to a child.
Once the media got ahold of the story, Nicole Lilliman was rehired back, saying it was a mistake to fire her. For some reason, I think she still would have been fired if the media didn’t write about it.

She’s now looking for another job. Hopefully, someone will give her one. Tim Horton’s only made $460 million in the first three months of 2008 alone. Just another example of how sometimes, nice people finish last.
