That poor cashier...I really feel for her. It's obvious that she wasn't feeling well at all and maybe she had a fever which was making her act irrationally.
An old manager of mine once threatened me with a write up when I called in sick. I couldn't get a doctor's note because I don't have health insurance. Thankfully, my company now seems to support the fact that if you are sick, you STAY HOME. They all supported me a couple of weeks ago when I stayed home because of the swine flu.
I wish walmart was the same. They shouldn't punish workers for being sick. They should support the fact that their workers want to stay home in order to get better (because you need rest to do that) and also to protect other employees and customers.
