  Pennie Johnson's Signed Affidavit - 

statement of facts- WRITTEN 8/13/2014.   

Just to brief you on who i am, i pride myself on being a good person, i care about things. I try to represent the things that i believe are good and always hold myself accountable, and when i do make a mistake, i try to learn from it and try not to do it again.  I am the person you would trust to watch your small children, i am dedicated to anything i do.  I am honest, I am a great worker, i was raised by my great grandma, so i take extra time with elderly, and a lot of times the elderly who can hardly stand will wait extra time if necessary to come through my line, because i make it easy and i show humanity. i smile and i listen to them.  For that reason, i have so many guests in Target whom  come up to me daily and tell me what a wonderful worker i am. I know alot about the policy's and i am very precise not to break the rules, for that reason the newer employees and some of the older as well  come to me, when they have an issue with the front lanes, cuz i know a ton and i am so easy to understand and i make learning anything just a little bit less of a chore.  To date, I have always came up, and gave them all the things i have found. And because i do so many odd jobs up front, ive found alot of different valuable, whether it be money, gift cards, peoples personal belongings, wallets, and etc. I wouldn't dream of stealing from anyone including my job, which was my livelihood.  I am loyal to Target  without exception. Unfortunately, i am not quite as important to target as they were to me i guess. One day in early August 2014, after i completed my shift for the day, after I was off the clock,  i found a white envelope outside my car,  that had 2 gift cards in it. I only noticed them because one of the cards was literally hanging out of the top of the envolope.   I was in pretty bad shape as far as my finances were concerned, and my son really needed shoes, and so i kept them for a few days and see if anyone called them in to see if they were lost. since i was working guest service for the next 4 or so days i thought id kept an eye open for any lost reports of two gift cards. I was off the clock so i didn't neglect their policy. After about 4 or 5 days i decided to use them. I bought my son, that had started school that week a pair of shoes, a pack of socks, and i bought 2 slurpees in food avenue. The gift card worked fine. No one asked me anything at all on this transaction and i was excited because i planned on getting some stuff to make food with the other gift card because we had no food at . When i got to the register, the girl scanned my stuff. and she asked me the last 4 digits of the card that i was paying with. IT WAS A GIFT CARD.... I remember asking her, gift cards dont have numbers.... where do i find numbers on it? She told me to look at the back, and maybe they would be there.  i flipped it over. And i read her some numbers, and they didnt work. i found on the card small numbers written on the card and i read her another 4 digits that was written on the back of the card.  it didn't work either.  Target stated that they requested to view the card. That is not true. Nor was it the stores policy until just a few days prior to me being fired. I was told that our GSA told someone i was acting odd. That is also incorrect. She was there with me... while we TOGETHER tried to figure out what was going wrong with the gift card. The girl that was helping check me out as well as the employee that was behind her in line, can all tell you, unless specifically told not to by target, cuz they all know no one asked me to give them the gift card. That is all false information.  in the end i gave up. i apologized to our gsa because i didnt have any more money and my gift card had been declined. i told her i would try to call the gift card and see if i could find out what was going on.  i never found an answer. 

I was asked on Tuesday to come in at 515 to work in one spot, which is a job they like me to do cuz I'm willing to crawl on the floor, to get the bottom shelves perfect, n we had our yearly inventory scheduled that night. when i got there i knew pretty quick something was up. Vinnie told me he had inventory in the team lead office. which is impossible, he asked if i could go with him to get it. hes our head AP. when i got there he told me some people wanted to ask me a question. i said okay, there were 2 very well dressed men and a female of the same stature. they asked if i needed anything that target could offer. i told them i had just borrowed from my 401k to pay last months rent. and maybe i needed more help with money cuz i dont know if ill make next months rent. they kept asking me questions at first about what i like about target what my role at target was. what was my favorite work center, they asked me what i like todo at home, what do i like to do out of my home. i answered all of them. but when i got to the out of the home question i answered i hadnt been anywhere but work and home and the geocury store since februrary cuz i just literally cant even pay my rent. and i noticed instantly a shift in the atmosphere. they interrogated me for 2 full hours. i kept telling them i didnt know what they wanted to know, it was as if they were trying to convince me id done something wrong. They told me i used a stolen credit card, which I had not.  Now tell me, who in the heck goes to their work, that they depend on and uses a credit card that is stolen???? I AM A GOOD PERSON. ALL THE WAY TO MY TOES. . i dont even talk to people who do stuff like that. they kept insisting that i was part of this larger plan. that they had a corrupt team member. then they shifted gears, they gave me a ton of information, about something i am sure they were not supposted to share with me. i was scared, still am. What would my kids think, how scared would they be if all of a sudden the swat raids my house. they mentioned that if i get a felony that i possibly could get my kids taken away. they told me that when the case goes public that it will make national news. that it is huge, and no arrests have been made as of yet. they kept on -- and on ... where have i had gotten the gift cards. My answer continues to be IN AN ENVOLOPE.. that's really where I got it.. I guess they didnt believe me. then they started trying to make me say what they wanted to hear... they kept pressing and pressing, and wow. how small i felt sitting there in my ragged ole' clothes that I had worn to crawl on the floor, these men in their expensive suits, pressing me. I had worked at target longer then one of them i believe, and i sat they in my ragged ole' clothing and just bawled the whole time i was there. 2 full hours. it was literally torturous. i kept hearing felony, felony, felony, 

DIDNT THEY KNOW I WORK FOR THEIR COMPANY. DIDNT THEY KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVED MY JOB. DIDNT THEY KNOW I WAS A HARD WORKER, THAT I WAS ON THEIR SIDE. I COULDNT EVEN HEAR THEM AS THEY RANTED AND RAVED AT ME.  I WAS LITERALLY AT A LOSS FOR WORDS, DIDNT THEY LISTEN I SAID IT 300 TIMES I GOT IT OUT OF A WHITE ENVELOPE, .. i told them over and over and over.... i dont know who stole the cards. i dont know anything. they asked me when i used the card why didnt i use my employee discount. For one it was because u cant use ur employee discount with a target giftcard visa. and for 2, i really didnt want to lose my job if someone said they lost their card outside target. (actually outside staples, cuz thats where i park), i dont know if you have ever been in this predicament. but there was no way out. they kept telling me to stop lying. saying they could arrest me on felony fraud charges for the shoes. they told me they didnt cuz they could see i was a good person. THEY KEPT TELLING ME IF THEY WANTED TO THEY WOULD PUT ME IN JAIL. OVER AND OVER. I WAS SOOO SCARED. then they told me that they believed that i hadnt done anything wrong or anything criminal, and they thought I was a good person who made mistake. they said that 9 out of 10 of their little 'meetings' with team members such as myself end in the employee being handcuffed and charges filed on them. 

JUST A QUESTION...  I HAVE ONE QUESTION FOR THEM.... 

DO GOOD PEOPLE, MAKE PEOPLE THEY BELIEVE TO BE GOOD PEOPLE FREAKING SOB AND CRY AND BEG TO KEEP MY JOB FOR 2 HOURS. AND THEN PUT ME ON SUSPENSION FOR 3 DAYS... APPARENTLY, TARGETS SCREWED UP A LIL THEY CAN PUT ME IN JAIL THEY CAN EVEN SUSPEND ME, BUT THEY CANT FIRE ME ON THE SPOT. THEY WANT ME TO GO BACK TODAY, I THINK NOT.  TOMORROW IS MY BIRTHDAY. AND I WONT HAVE ANY CAKE, I WONT GET A GIFT, I WONT EVEN MAKE IT THROUGH THE DAY WITHOUT CRYING.. HOW AM I GOING TO PAY MY RENT THIS MONTH. ONE THING BEING SAID.... I AM A GREAT PERSON. BUT I AM POOR. I AM SORRY. THAT IS MY ONLY CRIME HERE. I mean really what exactly did i do wrong besides find a gift card, i wasnt technically on the clock, it wasnt inside target, and i bought my son some shoes! really! This is pathetic really. I mean i feel like ive worked so hard, been so great at what i do. Truly, how can they just drop me, like i was garbage. I did nothing wrong, didn't I deserve a warning at least? 

I TOLD THEM THAT I WOULD GLADLY PAY FOR THE SHOES. THEY MADE ME SIGN A PAPER THAT STATED ID PAY FOR THE SHEOS, THEY WERE GOOD TO ME THERE, I HAVE TO PAY 10 DOLLARS EVERY MONTH FOR 3 MONTHS AND ONE OF THOSE MONTHS IT HAS TO BE 15. FINALLY THEY INSISTED THAT I SIGN THIS OTHER PAPER WHICH STATED I HAD COMMITTED FRAUD FOR 35.00, IF I DIDNT SIGN ALL OF THEM I WOULD POTENTIALLY BE CHARGED FOR FELONY FRAUD.  I DIDNT COMMIT FRAUD, THEY COMMITTED DEPRIVEMENT. TARGET IS A MULTI MILLION DOLLAR COMPANY, I WORKED MY BUT OFF TO GET TO 9.47 AN HOUR ... THEN MINIMUM WAGE WENT UP TO 9.00 AND I DIDNT GET MY DOLLAR RAISE. THATS AGAINST THEIR POLICY TOO...  AND TOLD ME I SUSPENDED FOR 3 DAYS AT WHICH TIME I AM TO GO BACK Ima get fired., ILL LOSE MY APARTMENT. WHERE WILL I GO WITH MY CHILDREN, MY ONLY REASON FOR BREATHING (TRUELY), ILL LOSE EVERYTHING IVE WORKED FOR SO DILIGENTLY FOR 5 YEARS. I WASTED A BIG CHUNK OF MY LIFE... I GOT NO WARNING, NEVER DONE ANY THING LIKE THAT BEFORE AND CERTAINLY DIDNT KNOW I WOULD END UP LOSING MY MUCH NEEDED JOB.

THANK YOU,

PENNIE JOHNSON 

New updates since affidavit was written - 

on Monday -08/18/2014

I went in at 12pm like i was asked to do on Friday by Vinnie, when i called and asked if my suspension was lifted. And i received my final pay. I asked for those papers that id signed when i was there that day, i wasnt in my right mind. I was crying, i didnt even read them. And i told them that. they thanked me for that. They told me that they couldnt give me those papers. But that i would be recieving one of them in November when i get my first bill for 10.00.  When i left i was reading over my paper with my final wages on it. Ive added it up 6 times and it seems to me that it is very short what i should have gotten. They were nice, but explained that they really had no choice but to let me go. It was policy. I dont even really know what i was acting terminated for. REASONING... I hope it doesnt say Fraud. Cuz nothing about what i did, was actually fraud. Just simply, a found gift card.

08/21/2014

i called in to target today to see if i could come in and get all of my pay stubs that i can only get and print at target. Because i got my pay automatically deposited, and i assumed that i would be there for a long time, i had elected not to recieve the paper copy, and save a tree. Well i was told that, i couldnt just come in a get them. and i would have to call back on Monday. so i guess ill do that. 

08/25/2014

i called in to target today, to speak with our HR that i was told was working today and i would have to wait for. Well she isnt in today. Apparantlly shes sick?? She is never sick, but if she is; i hope she gets better soon. - so i went on my TARGETPAYANDBENEFIT.COM

and i went  on their online chat session. Cuz i also wanted to know what day my benefits would end, cuz when i went in on monday 08/18/2014, i noticed on my paystub that they charged me for my dental which is fine. They informed me that my benefits ended on 08/16/2014. i asked them why i paid on the 18th if i wasnt allowed to use my  benefits, and that i broke off a tooth at the gums and i needed  to go in and have it fixed. i have the chat screen shotted, so i can show someone what they said if needed. they informed me that i had to pay for past due benefits. I HAVE NEVER IN OVER A YEAR USED MY BENEFITS... SO WHAT DID I HAVE TO PAY FOR??? I AM  SO UPSET.  and then i asked them about my pay and they told me to call ehr at a 1800# where they informed me i no longer have access to my pay stubs. so how in the world am i going to apgay for unemployment? they  told me that i can give unemployment a 1800# and target can give them that info....SO WHY CANT THEY GIVE IT TO ME? maybe i want records for my own personal record. i dont know but when i went to apply for unemployment they asked for all these records i didnt have. NEVER once did they say enter in a 1800# so i can figure out how much you made for you. I AM GETTING SO FRUSTRATED. WHY ARE THEY BEING LIKE THIS WITH ME. I MEAN THEY ARE TREATING ME LIKE A CRIMINAL. i am no criminal. and i really dont know what im going to do next. I am So confused by this process. i have contacted like hecka lawyers and for some reason they are afraid to talk to me. TARGET MUST BE A THREAT TO EVERYONE. they Certainly are to me... 

i just dont understand why  this all happened the way it did. 

September 18, 2014- denied unemployment
Oct.21 2014- got a new job. But they require I have a car so I can drop off money at the bank n go to the post office while I'm working. I don't know what I'm going to do but I need a car..... Like tomorrow.

Need money, NEED HELP: Things are rough, I recently got laid off and with how the last year went I'm in deep

Things are rough, I recently got laid off and with how the last year went I'm in deep enough I wanna put my head in the sand like an ostrich, I'm a father of one and a husband of one, but it's tough right now. I've slowly gotten into debt from everything from rent to billsnto a few stupidity tickets.I was awarded for speeding by the nice police officers(im a dumbass). I'm so tired from the stress of making sure everyone has a roof to live under and food to eat....but soon I won't have a roof to eat under let alone food. I'm currently in arrears for rent about 4000.00, this happened over a period of time and my landlord is really nice but business is business. Not to mention some of those tickets for speeding, which I don't do anymore lol....learned that lesson...I'm not used to asking for help from anyone...I'm one of those "I can do it myself" types....but by the looks of things now, I may have been wrong on that....(wife loves it) so it's time to suck it up and pull my head out of the sand....ive tried many things and as of right now this seems to be my only choice. So I'm looking to everyone that can help....please I need help to help the others I love in my life, and I can pray all I want but sometimes you need to ask for help rather than pray for help, while traveling life! So please I'm asking you to help us, with your help I can still have a roof to live under tomorrow and food to keep us alive and if the little one is lucky, maybe she can get a stuffed animal to hold while dreaming. I want to say thank you to everyone for your interest, please if you can, our little family could use your love and help, again thank you and God bless.
