    Moronic. Helping people get's you the sack.

    Others may use leniency like that to take advantage so I understand process, but when no harm is done and the customer is thankful, not complaining, it's a foolish decision.

Imagine the outcry if there is some incident down the line by family suggesting some money has gone missing.
    But what about the chap she helped? He must be feeling awful now that he knows he's responsible for the lady losing her job.
