Former Goodwill employee esme adore (@adore.esme.now) reveals that she was fired from her job after breaking the store’s “no shopping” policy to purchase an oversized Garfield stuffed toy. In a viral TikTok she explains the loophole she used to try and circumvent the store’s policy.
The video shows a split screen of Adore holding and hugging the giant Garfield toy, still wearing her Goodwill T-Shirt, and a second video of a man identified as Adore’s father walking out of the Goodwill store with the Garfield toy under his arm.
The text overlays read, “Goodwill just fired me for violating their ‘no shopping policy’ and ‘making your dad go into the goodwill to buy giant Garfield because you’re not allowed to shop there.'”
In the comments, users were shocked by the policy, supportive of Adore’s choice to buy the toy anyway.“Goodwill rules are so weird because they get everything for free who do they think they are?” one viewer asked.
