Sometimes the news echoes classic literature a little too closely:
Whole Foods fired Ralph Reese for taking a tuna fish sandwich. ....As always, I did deeper into the story, and have found footage of the Whole Foods Management Training Film:
His version of the story: He was throwing out 30 sandwiches at the end of the shift, and he put the tuna sandwich aside on the counter in plain view. When the supervisor confronted him about it, he said it was going to be thrown out and he was going to eat it.
The supervisor then threw the sandwich out.
Two days later, Mr. Reese was fired.
