    Tip Top

    | Atlanta, GA, USA | At The Checkout

    (I am working as a cashier and an elderly lady comes in through my line.)

    Old Lady: "Honey, you are always so nice to everybody. I bet no one ever does anything for you!"

    Me: "Thank you! But that’s not true."

    (I put the groceries in the cart for her, but she still stands by my register.)

    Me: "Did you need anything else?"

    Old Lady: "Here, you just take this as a lil’ thank-you from me!"

    (She thrusts a couple of dollars at me. Mind you, there are cameras at every register and we aren’t allowed to take tips.)

    Me: "I’m sorry, ma’am, but I can’t accept that. We don’t take tips."

    Old Lady: "Take it, please!"

    Me: "No, I really–"

    Old Lady: "TAKE IT!"

    (She then opens up my work shirt, puts the money inside, closes it, and pats my chest down.)

    Old Lady: "Now you have a nice day!"

    (There are guys from my college behind her and I’m red as a beet.)

    One of the guys: "Heh heh, and how are you doin’?"
