Doesn’t Have The Energy To Argue

| Working | June 22, 2014

(A young customer comes to my till. I serve him, take his money, and he leaves. My supervisor comes over.)

Supervisor: “[My Name], did you just serve that customer without asking for ID?”

Me: “Well, yes. But—”

Supervisor: “You know the rules, if the customer looks under 25 we have to ID, and he was clearly younger than that.”

Me “But—”

Supervisor: “You need to be more careful. You know both the store and you personally would have to pay a fine if you’re caught selling alcohol to minors?”

Me: “I know that, but—”

Supervisor: “I know you’re usually very thorough with IDs, but if I see you doing that again, I’m going to have to write you up. We can’t risk having our alcohol license removed.”

Me: “[Supervisor]!”

Supervisor: “Yes?”

Me: “I didn’t ID him because he wasn’t buying alcohol. He was buying an energy drink.”

Supervisor: “Oh.” *short pause* “Okay, keep up the good work.”
