Good News: Clerk Fired For Good Deed Gets New Job


Lins, a clerk at 7-Eleven, says she began chatting with a customer about how he didn’t know where he was going to sleep on that freezing night. Lins, who immediately empathized given her own recent struggles with being homeless, gave him a small cup of coffee. When storeowner Romany Youseff appeared and allegedly accosted the man, demanding to know if he had paid for it, Lins lied and told her boss that he had. She fessed up the next day and paid for the $1 coffee herself, but, she says, she was soon fired.  Lins took to social media, and soon landed a job at a homeless services center.  Read more about her here.
