She knew and disliked the guy. If she called on every intoxicated patron leaving, she would be on the phone all the time.

Who cares WHY she did it. She might have saved some lives that night. Her boss is going to have one heck of a law suit on his hands.

I'm sure she would have been fired if she stopped serving him. So either way, she would have lost her job. I'm glad she called the police on the old drunk!

ITA w/ you....She could've called a cab or one of those taxi services that are specifically for people who drank too much. That way she could 1.)have the person get home safely, w/out injuring/killing anybody and 2.) she wouldn't have pissed her boss off & bitten the hand that was (literally) feeding her....
