Crazy Lawsuits #12

Diabetes is Not an Excuse

Looking through crazy lawsuits crack me up and I came across this one which I thought it was hilarious.

“In this case, a South San Francisco woman named Josefina Hernandez was fired from Walgreens for “stealing” a bag of potato chips. Josefina claims she suffers from diabetes and was about to have a diabetic attack so she decided to grab a bag of chips and eat them. After work, she paid for the bag of chips but was still fired for stealing. Josefina has been working for 18 years and could not believe what she was hearing. It’s absolutely crazy what a company will claim in order to fire an employee, there is no way possible a bag of chips is worth more than an experienced employee. She is suing Walgreens and I think it sounds perfectly reasonable.”
