An Oregon woman claims she was fired from her bank job after helping a struggling customer get home to his family on Christmas Eve by giving him $20 of her own money.
There must be more to this story. A bank employee gave $20 of her own money to a man who was having an emergency.....and the bank fired her, saying it was an “unauthorized interaction with a customer.”
“At U.S. Bank, we have policies and procedures in place to protect our customers and employees,” the statement read. “Ms. James was terminated following an internal investigation into her interactions with a customer. During this review it was determined Ms. James did not use the available solutions to remedy the customer’s situation and instead put herself and the bank at risk with her actions.”
That can't be right. How did they even find out she gave him the money? Why is it any of their business? She said she had permission to leave and meet with the man, so what's the problem?
I hate these news stories that seem so ridiculous you know they're full of crap and leaving important parts out.
