Chick-Fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy is taking a unique approach in deciding the punishment for three pre-teen girls that caused over $30,000 in damage to his mansion. Instead of letting the courts handle it, Truett came up with four terms the girls must meet.
S. Truett Cathy, 87, said he met with the three girls — two of them 11, the other 12 — and their mothers after the girls broke into a private residence known as the Chick-fil-A Lodge and caused about $30,000 in damages, The Daytona Beach (Fla.) News-Journal reported Friday.“I tried to be lenient with them but wanted to punish them,” Cathy said. “I wanted to show them there was a better way than the way they were going.”
Cathy said the punishment includes four terms: Each of the girls must write “I will not vandalize other people’s property” 1,000 times, abstain from TV and video games for six months, read a “good book” for three hours a day and submit weekly written book reports to him for 13 weeks.
The 87-year old Baptist Sunday school teacher is known for his generosity and kindness to his employees and others. All Chick Fil A franchises are closed on Sunday’s so employees can spend time with their families and attend church if they wish.
