October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

High-Five Cents

| Nova Scotia, Canada | Uncategorized

(A line has formed at the cash. My boss is doing paperwork at the desk behind me. I finish ringing up a customer.)

Me: “Hello there, ma’am. Before I ring you in, would you like a plastic bag today? I only ask because they do cost five cents extra.”

(She looks at me in angry disgust.)

Customer: “You still charge people even though it’s raining outside?! That’s disgusting! Are you proud of yourself?!”

Me: “Since all of the proceeds from plastic bags go to a wildlife preservation foundation, yes. I am proud of myself.”

(The customer stalks away in disgust. I turn around to see my boss staring at me.)

Manager: “Did you just say that?”

Me: “Yup.”

(She raises her hand for a high-five.)
