“Mom, why is Dad home instead of at Tasty Tacos?” Jenny asked as her mother fixed lunch.
“He walked off his job yesterday.”
“He didn’t want to fill a catering order for police officers.”
“Well, he’s furious about what has been happening lately.”
“Is he going to be fired because he walked off his job?”
“Thankfully, no. His job will still be there if he chooses to return.”
“Is he the only one who walked off?”
“No. Several other employees did too.”
Jenny stood up.
“Where are you going?”
“To tell Dad that I’m proud of him.”
This story was inspired by a true story about Taco Shop employees choosing to walk off their jobs rather than to serve police officers.
