Joe Koblenzer served his country in Vietnam and for the past three years he’s been serving folks at Cracker Barrel in Sarasota, Florida.
But Joe got fired the other day – after he gave a homeless guy a free corn muffin.
The man came in looking for tartar sauce – said he was going to cook a fish.
So Joe gave him a packet of sauce – and tossed in a corn muffin for good measure.
Cracker Barrel says Joe violated company policy – and it’s not the first time.
They say he also gave a lady a free cup of coffee.
Joe says he doesn’t hold a grudge. He understands that rules are rules.
Fired for doing a good deed.
So now Joe is looking for a new job – to supplement his monthly Social Security benefits.
I was sorta looking forward to getting a Cracker Barrel Country Boy Breakfast this morning.
But for some reason, I’ve lost my appetite.
