Johnny Cook drove a bus for the Haralson County, Georgia, school system, and he got upset when a middle school student told him he didn't get to eat because his lunch card was 40 cents short. He posted about the incident on his Facebook page and said the next time that happens someone should call him and he'd pay the 40 cents. School officials fired Cook after he refused their demand to recant the post.
