    @ SheWolf
    I concur with you also, thus why I mention the rounded part.

    There is no mention of other customers being present as witnesses.
    It's highly likely they were the only ones there at the time.

    I know that if it were 'me' behind the counter, I'd have simply given her the damned inhaler and worried about payment later. If I got fired, then so be it. My job is not worth someones life.
    yes, we can judge the employee's actions. it was a buck, for god's sake.

    I disagree, I think its highly likely that customers weren't the target of the article written on THE CONSUMERIST that is focused on "shoppers biting back" and is dedicated to attacking corporations.

    I think its ridiculous to assume that a store like CVS was absolutely and completely empty of any customers during this, as more often then not SOMEONE is in a store like that. And my comment about the customers would go equal to every employee in that building as well. Its ridiculous to think one of them didn't have a dollar or an ATM/Credit Card on hand.

    I am much more annoyed at people on an individual level...from managers to employees to customers...then to a Company or Corporation that has a perfectly logical and reasonable guideline.

    Ok - is there another article that discusses it from another view?

    I looked at Google news and pretty much all outfits, fox news, nj.com, etc have the same article. It was probably syndicated by the look of it.

    Given the above, it appears that CVS and its employee(s) have one massive on their hands.

    The population of Garwood NJ is 4500. It's entirely possible, and possibly even likely, that no one else was in the store at the time.

    Sure. The guy at the counter and/or the manager could have easily pulled their heads out of their asses and done so. But they didn't. Apparently their "Passion for extraordinary customer service" in "helping people live longer, healthier, happier lives" was on a break at the time.

    Is profitability so important that CVS did the right thing here?


    do you have evidence that this was corporate greed not pharm techician idiocy?

    Uhm it's a suburb of Newark, it's pretty much an urban area. Jersey is not like montanna, there is no open space between towns around here.
