When I addressed and warned him about it he denied the allegations. When he realized he was on camera he returned the tip to the customer. I explained to him that when he stops participating in actions that don’t benefit everyone effected, he’ll have everything he wants. You have to give to receive.

The department is not recommended to assist visitors in the parking garage at night because it’s not the best neighborhood. In my mind I’m thinking well we don’t know if this patient can even walk or walk with assistance so I went to help the visitor regardless of what was not recommended. I know if I was older or really in need I would want someone to help me. The patient could walk with assistance but I still offered them a wheelchair. She ended up offering me a tip but I refused. My tip was bringing a smile to her face and a sense of relief.
