Check The Sign

, , , , | Right | March 7, 2022

I work at a place that can’t cash checks; I don’t even have a function on my register. I haven’t been here very long — just a few months. An older man comes to my register and pays for his items. He then puts down a rebate check from a cable company and doesn’t say anything. I pick it up.

Me: “I’m sorry, what did you need?”

Customer: “I need cash.”

Me: “Um, I’m sorry, but we can’t do that here.”

I point out the big sign behind me that says, “No third-party checks”. I put it back on the counter but he pushes it back toward me.

Customer: *Rather rudely* “Then I want to pay for my things.” 

Uh… you already paid…

Me: “I’m sorry, we can’t do that here.”

I point again to the big sign behind me. The man abruptly picks up his check and starts walking out.

Customer: “What a crappy place. I might be back, no thanks to you.”

I actually started laughing.
