CORAL GABLES (CBS4) – Betty Asbury, affectionately known to students as “Miss Betty,” was fired from her job as a cashier at the Hecht/Stanford Dining Hall October 10th.
A man walked past her without paying the required $6.80 for breakfast, she said.
According to Asbury, she did not see the man as she was ringing up another customer.
“I said please, I made a human mistake by overlooking someone and letting them in,” Asbury said.
But Chartwells, the food service company that employs her, didn’t budge.
CBS 4 News contacted Chartwells’ corporate office during business hours Friday. When we asked specifically about Asbury’s case, we were told someone would be calling us back. The company never responded.

Students have stepped up to show their support for Asbury. Many shared fond memories of the cashier whose son, Brian, attended UM and played basketball.
Grad Student Philipp Schwind started a Facebook page and created a Change.org petition to have Miss Betty reinstated.
As of Friday night, more than 1,800 people were on board...

After the amendment passed on Tuesday evening, Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, cautioned Coloradans not to celebrate just yet.
“The voters have spoken and we have to respect their will," Hickenlooper, who opposed the amendment, said in a statement on his website. "This will be a complicated process, but we intend to follow through. That said, federal law still says marijuana is an illegal drug so don’t break out the Cheetos or Goldfish too quickly..."
On Thursday morning's First Take, Stephen A. Smith expressed his disbelief that Kobe Bryant would miss time with an injury by saying "nigga, please." This was not a thing he should have said on TV, yet he did.
