We live in a wild time y’all. And by wild I do in fact mean the darkest timeline. Our president is…some sort of orange something, states are taking away abortion access at an astounding rate, and basic decency is quickly slipping into the past.
Maybe I’m just an old curmudgeon, but today’s story has me yearning for past days when a kid could forget their lunch money without being accused of stealing. Yeah, that’s right: a kid at Mascoma Valley Regional High School in New Hampshire forgot his lunch money. The lunch lady did what any decent human being would do: she let him have lunch. He paid her the next day.
You’d think this would be a non-issue. But the food services company didn’t seem to think so. Not only did they call the action “theft”, they fired the kind lunch lady who helped a kid in need. What even?
