You will only post once for a grade in this Journal. Post a minimum of 250 words, but make sure it is an original post concerning the following:

A cashier employed for 18 years ate a bag of potato chips without buying them while at work. She paid for the bag as soon as her shift ended. She was fired. The employee ate the chips because she was diabetic and was concerned that her blood sugar was getting too low. Later, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) sued the employer on her behalf and claimed the employer discriminated against her because of her disability.
