Boooooooooooo Subway!

From yesterday's news:

Heidi Heise, of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia was fired from a Subway restaurant for helping two neighbours left homeless and hungry after an apartment fire.

Last week's apartment fire did not affect Heidi Heise's unit, but left some neighbours homeless, and she offered them her place.

Heise says when the neighbours came to thank her at the nearby Subway restaurant she works at, she gave them each one free six-inch sub to alleviate their hunger.

But when she went to work on Wednesday, she said she was told she was fired for giving away the subs.

"They were like, ‘We went over the cameras and we (saw) you on the weekend, give away a free sub,'" she told CTV Atlantic.

The two six-inch subs are the equivalent of one 12-inch sub, which Subway employees are entitled to as a staff lunch, which must be marked down.

She said because of everything going on, she forgot to mark it down.
