My job wouldn’t allow me on a register if I couldn’t tell a twenty from a ten. So do not get offended, customer, when you hand me two ten dollar bills and five ones on a thirty-five dollar purchase and I don’t cash out your transaction. You still owe ten dollars for your books. Making me prove to you FOUR times by counting your money out onto the counter to show there were no twenties doesn’t change that. Also giving me another ten doesn’t suddenly make it that you’ve given me fourty dollars so I owe you five in change. You’ve just finally given me the thirty-five you owed.
The couple that pulled this on me has been coming in pretty regularly the last few weeks and always making sure to check out with someone else. And now that I think about it, a few weeks ago is when the owner started mentioning everybody being short five or ten dollars in their register at the end of their shifts. Thinking over how confident they were with me and how long and how hard they tried to stick to their claims despite my proving they hadn’t given me the amount they were claiming, I think they could be part of why people have been short those specific amounts.
My phone’s charging, dinner’s on time-cook in the oven. I’ll be home as soon as I can and we can watch whatever movie you want. Even something scary that I’ll watch from between my fingers. I need to go up to the store and try to catch the owner before he leaves to tell him what happened and what I think is going on. He’s scared his employees are stealing from him and if I’m right - this clears everybody. They’re not thieves. Just...distracted. Which still isn’t great but it’s still a little better.
