Leaving Only With Emotional Scar(f)s, Part 2

, , , , , | Right | October 6, 2020

I am working as a front counter cashier of a fast food restaurant. A man enters to use our restroom and then leaves. I think nothing of it until he comes back about ten minutes later. It is a slow time of day and no one has come in since he originally left.

Customer: “My scarf is missing! I left it in the bathroom and now it is gone.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but no one has come in since you left.”

Customer: “It was there! I came in with it and left it, and now it is gone.”

I go to check the bathrooms, but there is no sign of the scarf.

Customer: “Do you know how much that cost?! That was a $200 scarf! It was a present and now it is gone and it’s all your fault.”

Me: “I’m sorry about your scarf. I will keep an eye out for it.”

Customer: “No! I want my scarf! Someone took it from the bathroom and I want it back! Did you take it?! Tell me! I want my scarf!

Me: “I haven’t seen your scarf!”

Another customer enters so I go to help her. Meanwhile, the man starts shouting at all the employees in general.

Customer: “I know one of you has the scarf! Let me come back there and search everyone. That is my scarf and you all are nothing but a bunch of thieves! I’m going to call the cops!”

After a few more minutes of yelling, which the other employees and I all ignore, he finally leaves.

Other Customer: “D***, I seriously doubt his scarf was worth $200.”
