Not A Bad Penny Among Them

| Flagstaff, AZ, USA | At The Checkout, Crazy Requests, Money, Theme Of The Month

(I’m working as a cashier. I have a line of three people.)

Me: “Hi. How are you doing tonight?”

Customer #1: “Not bad, and you?”

Me: “Well, to be honest, it’s my first night, and it definitely could be going better! I just had a customer pay for her entire $25 order in dimes and nickels!”

(Customer #1 and Customer #3 wince and make sympathetic noises as I finish ringing out Customer #1. Meanwhile, Customer #2 goes absolutely white as a sheet.)

Customer #2: “I’m really, REALLY sorry. You are going to hate me.”

(Customer #2 places a $40 bottle of whiskey on the counter, and begins emptying his pockets…of pennies.)

Me: *whimpers*

(Thankfully, Customer #2 and Customer #3 helped me count!)
