Just Say Thanks For The Extra Penny And Hush

, , , | Right | October 23, 2021

I worked overnight as a gas station cashier by myself. Since the day shifts would often leave me without change left in the safe that I had access to, I’d sometimes round amounts that involved pennies to keep my drawer balanced. Most people didn’t care.

Then, I encountered this woman. I rounded her change up by one penny to avoid giving her four I didn’t have.

Me: “Here’s your change. Have a nice day.”

Customer: “This is wrong! You gave me the wrong change!”

I tried to explain to her why I’d rounded up, but she wouldn’t listen. She returned during the morning shift to complain to my manager, too.
