In-Appropriating A New Cashier

| Working | November 14, 2013

(It is my first day of cashiering officially. I pick up my till and head to the manager’s podium with the bookkeeper who shows me how to open my locker.)

Bookkeeper: “Okay, we just have to find the manager for this shift and get you started. Oh, there he is! Hey [Manager’s Name]! Your new cashier, [My Name], is here. Where do you want to stick her?”

Manager: *with his back to us* “Stick her? I don’t even know her yet! Ba-dum-tsch! Hah.”

Bookkeeper: “Uh…”

Manager: *without turning around* “…she’s actually standing there with you, isn’t she?”

Bookkeeper: “…yeah.”

Manager: “Right! Set her up on register six.”

(Register six is the farthest away from the manager’s podium. He spent the rest of the shift avoiding eye contact and later apologized.)
