Shut Up And Stop Giving Us Your Money!

, , , , | Working | June 7, 2020

I work in an office and I suddenly hear: 

Coworker: “STOP PAYING US!”

The words are followed by a loud scream of frustration. I walk to my coworker.

Me: “Eh, [Coworker], everything all right?”

Coworker: “Yes, yes, I’m sorry. It’s just… [Client] made an automatic payment and they accidentally made multiple, so we keep on receiving money and we keep on sending it back. They thought they managed to cancel all transactions, but I guess another one slipped through.”

Me: “Eesh, how many did we receive?”

The coworker looks at her screen and counts.

Coworker: “Nine.” 

Me: “Well, eh… Let’s hope this was the last one. Good luck.”

A week later, my coworker screams again.

Coworker:Yes! They stopped paying us! Finally!
