This blog post by MckMama is interesting. The Home Depot employee in this picture is smoking while handing out supplies to children. Highly inappropriate, don’t you think? It really makes you stop and think about how you present yourself when you are working, or even volunteering.
What kind of message is Home Depot sending by allowing an employee to smoke in front of children while they are on the clock? Or even volunteering. As a consumer, would you continue to support this company? Would you let your children near sponsored events? Or should the employee be “cut a break” because she is “doing good” by handing out the supplies?
