It’s Taco Time Before Closing Time!

, , , , | Hopeless | October 26, 2017

(I’m the customer in this story, and it’s late at night. After I get off work at another location, I decide that I want to get dinner at a popular Mexican fast food restaurant. However, I don’t want to be that customer that keeps the lobby open late, particularly since I am kept at work late. I walk up to the counter.)

Me: “Before I order, what time does your lobby close?”

Cashier: “It closes at ten-thirty.”

(It is a little after nine, so I decide to eat in.)

Me: “All right, thanks. I didn’t want to keep it open later than what it needed be.”

(I place my order, which includes two rolled tacos and a dipping sauce. When it’s done, I notice I have four rolled tacos and two cups of dip. I don’t think anything of it at first, knowing they can’t take it back since I have already touched the tray. However, as I’m about to eat the second two, I pause and decide to try to clear my mind.)

Me: *back at the counter* “Um… I asked for two rolled tacos, and I got four. Can I pay for the extra two?”

Cashier: *looking at me confused* “You got four rolled tacos?”

Me: “Yes, and I’d like to pay fo—”

Cashier: “No, no! Don’t worry about it, but thanks for your honesty.”

Me: “You sure?”

Cashier: “Yeah, it’s just two; go ahead.”

Me: “Well, can I pay for [a different dip] then?”

(Smiling brightly, the cashier nods before selling me the other dip and, as I’m leaving at 9:55, comes to me and hands me a gift card.)

Me: *confused* “Uh… thanks, but—”

Cashier: “No, you are one of the few people who are honest, and you visit us quite often. It’s the least we can do, and I already had it approved.”

Me: “Well, thanks.”

Cashier: “No problems. Have a good night!”

Me: “You, too!”

(I stood at the door for a little bit and heard them lock it, right on time, and waved. As for the gift card, it covered the full price of my order.)
