Fired for giving a corn muffin to someone in need, a 73 year old veteran says rules are rules, but he has no regrets about helping out a homeless man.
Joe Koblenzer was working his shift at a Cracker Barrel in Venice, Florida when a man walked in and asked if he could have some condiments.
Koblenzer loaded a few packets into a bag, adding a corn muffin free of charge.
Shortly after, Koblenzer was let go.
To make matters worse, as soon as the online campaign against the chain began to spread on social media, Cracker Barrel's Twitter feed Tweeted a post urging customers to support our veterans.
