According to her termination letter, she was fired for violating a company policy about how much money can be inside the cash register. Some of the cast was supposed to be placed in a safe at regular intervals throughout the night.

Keller admits she made a mistake but didn’t think it should have cost her the job.

  1. They don’t follow the rules of employment, and then think their mistakes because they did not follow the rules should not cost their job…

    You don’t do the job the way you were taught to do the job, then you are not doing the job, and they have no reason to keep you. End of chat.

    Rules are rules for a reason. Not to be ignored “just cuz…”
