#1 This is Mr. Michael Walsh, a Niskayuna, N.Y. Walmart employee
#2 But when he went back inside to tell the manager, the woman who had lost the money was furious
#3 Once she had left, a fair amount of time had passed
#4 He had received a call days later from the manager he had given the money to
#5 He felt that he was being treated as a “common criminal”
#6 He is now fired, and he has lost more than just his salary
Though the paycheck is the biggest loss, the 20% employee discount he had used to get holiday gifts. In addition, he was really very close to the lifetime 10% discount that employees of 20 years or more receive.
#7 Fair or Foul?
Obviously we just got one side of the story, but we can actually empathize with not wanting to admit to finding cash in front of a customer convinced that it was just stolen. Still, you have to turn it in ASAP for risk of just looking even the slightest bit guilty.
