Q: "I am a cashier in a grocery store and am writing to you about the dark side of coupon use. You don't have a concept of the abuse we go through daily at the hands of our coupon-clipping customers.

Your phone call just put a single mother out of work, even though she was correct in not allowing you to use those coupons.
