“The girl who gave the guy the coffee for free, she gave him that coffee out of her heart Her manager? He’s a jerk, he ain’t got no heart, he don’t deserve to have a person of her quality working for him,” said Leonard, New Haven.
“The company at large who is trying to prosecute that poor young lady for giving a homeless guy a cup of coffee, it’s a disgrace,” said Joe, New Haven.
“Poor girl deserves a medal taking care of the homeless people,” said Frank, Milford.
“Have the owner wake up and smell the coffee, pun intended, buy the guy a cup of coffee, 89 cents. I don’t think 7-11 is going to go bankrupt over 89 cents,” said J.Q. East Lime.
“I used to work at a food bag and I definitely gave out some free coffee, it’s cold out, give em some free coffee what kind of people do that. He’s homeless, that guy has no heart,” said Sean, Danbury.
