It’s sad, but today doing the right thing isn’t always a good outcome for the good doer. They can even end up in a lot of trouble.
This was exactly what happened to cafeteria worker in a New Hampshire school. She was fired simply because she was generous enough to provide a student with food when he was unable to pay for it.
Bonnie Kimball worked in the cafeteria at the Mascoma Valley Regional High School. This is where she let the child take a mere $8 worth of food.
She told the child to let his mother know about the deficit and it would need to be paid back. She didn’t think nothing more of it.
Students and staff are rallying behind a Mascoma Valley Regional High School lunch lady fired for allowing a boy to run up an $8 lunch debt rather than go hungy. Bonnie Kimball thought she was doing the right thing and the parent did eventually pay. https://t.co/y65rc8oGjXpic.twitter.com/eds9teHG2m
