(I work at a grocery store, and for a while I was scheduled on lot service about once a week during the winter. I got better days, but it was still below freezing, nearing 0 degrees Fahrenheit)

Customer: *comes running up to me with a few dollars in her hand* You must be freezing out here. Here, take this and get yourself a cup of coffee to warm up.

Me: I’m sorry, miss, but I’m not allowed to take tips from customers.

Customer: Oh, I thought that was just for bringing groceries out. But please, take it. I’m not going to tell anyone.

Me: I’m sorry, but I really can’t.

Customer: Take it, I won’t leave until you do. You’ve been out here all night in the cold, you’ve earned it.

(This went on for a while, until I finally wore down and took the money. I feel a little bad about taking it, but it’s one of the nicest things a customer has ever done for me.)
