November Theme Of The Month: Black Friday!

Cashier Doesn’t Register The Cash

| Glasgow, Scotland, UK | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Money

(I’m showing a new employee the basics of working behind the counter. Everything is going well and it’s a quiet night, so I decide to call my mum and ask if she could lend me some money for the night. As I am on the phone, one of my regular customers comes in. I tell the new employee to have a go of the till on his own. I finish the conversation with my mum.)

Regular Customer: “Hi, how are you?”

Me: “I’m alright thanks, yourself?”

Regular Customer: “Yeah, I’m not too bad. Were you asking your mum to borrow money there?”

Me: “Yeah, I’m supposed to be going bowling tonight with my friends, but I’m a bit low on cash. She said it would be alright if I paid her back when I get my wages.”

(We have a chat as we usually do. She tells me she was always borrowing money when she was my age.)

Regular Customer: “Okay, well I hope you have a nice night!”

Me: “I will, thanks a lot; see you later.”

(She leaves, only to come back a minute later, and talks to me incredibly fast.)

Regular Customer: “You’re always really friendly and have a chat with me. Here, take this; enjoy your night!”

(She slams a £10 note on the counter, and runs off into the night before I can even say anything.)


(I try to catch her to tell her she doesn’t need to do that, but she is away in her car before I can even get out from behind the counter.)

Me: “I… I don’t even know what just happened. That is the nicest thing that’s ever happened to me.”

Coworker: “Does this happen a lot?”

Me: “Never! This never happens. You just witnessed history.”
