A Starbucks employee in Seattle was fired for stealing trash this week. Twenty-one-year-old Coulson Loptmann says he noticed some sandwiches that had just gone out of date, and were being thrown away. Since he was hungry, he figured snagging a snack out of the trash pile couldn't hurt.
The next week, he was fired, the company saying it still considers his actions "theft". So who's in the right?
