Outrageous Bank Teller Fired for Saying ‘Have a Blessed Day’!?
A former Kentucky bank teller says she was fired from her job at U.S. Bank for telling customers to have a blessed day.
Polly Neace, who worked at U.S. Bank for nearly two-and-a-half decades, was on “Fox and Friends” to discuss her lawsuit.
Neace explained that in 2009, someone told her to have a blessed day, and she thought it was such a nice thing to say.
“I mean, in my opinion, I don’t think there’s any better day to have than a blessed day,” she explained.
After wishing customers a blessed day for more than two years without complaint, Neace was told that she couldn’t say it anymore and was ultimately fired.
Neace also asked a customer not to take the lord’s name in vain, but she said that was unrelated and that the customer did not complain about her.
U.S. Bank said in a statement, “At U.S. Bank, we hold our employees to high ethical standards when interacting with customers and co-workers, and take violations of these standards seriously. We believe that this lawsuit is without merit and believe the facts presented in future legal proceedings will justify our actions.”
