So sorry, I'm broke so I can only pay you $77 for my food. You were great though.

Walmart will fire you for eating unopened, but expired beef jerky from the dumpster. They'll even wait a whole year to bring it up and fire you over it.

I worked at a PetSmart. Sometimes aquariums arrived broken, and we would salvage usable items (starter kits would have filters etc). A coworker took some sample packs of bacterial starter and was fired. For taking samples ... Which came from written off product.

I worked at a Sally's Beauty Supply and they would make us "damage out" and "destroy" (put in the dumpster) any returned product. Makes sense for things like make-up, but sometimes a beard trimmer or a flat iron would get returned in working condition but due to health and safety regulations would be considered damaged and have to be tossed.

My boss was cool and hated waste, so when that happened she would just put them in a little box next to the dumpster and employees could drive around back on their way home and pick out what they wanted before the rest got tossed.
