DARTMOUTH, N.S. -
Doing a good deed for neighbours in need seems to have cost a Dartmouth, Nova Scotia woman her job.
CTV reports it began last week with a fire in Heidi Heise's apartment building. Her unit escaped the flames, but some others weren't as lucky.
When Heidi learned two neighbours had been left homeless, and had no food or money, she let them stay at her place. And when they stopped by the Subway restaurant where she works to thank her for her generosity, Heise gave them two six inch subs to ease their hunger.
But when Heidi went to work Wednesday, she was told she was fired. The boss said it was because she'd been caught on camera giving away the two little subs.
Subway staff are entitled a free 12 inch sub, but they must record it as a staff lunch. Heidi says she forgot to write it down because she had so many other things on her mind.
So now a disillusioned Heidi is looking for a new job, the people she housed and fed are devastated and Heidi's landlord is outraged. Subway head office in Winnipeg wasn't returning the landlord's calls Wednesday.
