Nicole Lilliman lost her job at Tim Hortons Wednesday.
The reason? She had given away a Timbit (a donut hole at Dunkin Donuts) to a toddler.
The youngster came in with a regular customer, and Lilliman, who had seen other employees give out treats to kids and even dogs, handed him the free treat.
Tim Hortons charges 16 cents for a Timbit but it likely costs less than 10 cents to the company.
The 27-year old was fired by the district manager, who said giving food away free is against the rules and "it doesn't matter if it is a Timbit or a coffee or a doughnut or 10 sandwiches."
But by Thursday, she was back on the job. Another Tim Hortons in London had called with an opening, and she accepted the offer. Pretty sad considering Tim Hortons is a Canadian icon.
