Change The Cashier

, , , , , | Working | February 21, 2020

(I go to the nearest grocery store to grab a drink. A woman is standing near the checkout and the cashier is talking on the phone, but since I’m getting just one thing I don’t mind this too much.)

Cashier: *scans the drink while still talking on the phone* “It’s [price].”

Me: *hands him the money and waits for my change*

Cashier: *hands the phone to the woman and scans the drink again*

Me: “You already scanned it.”

Cashier: “It’s [price].”

Me: “I already gave you the money; my change is [amount].”

Cashier: *starts looking around, confused*

Me: “It’s beside the register. My change is [amount].”

(The cashier is about to scan the drink again until he spots the money I gave him, then puts it in the drawer and stares at me.)

Me: “Could I have my change, please?”

Cashier: *finally gives me my change, still confused*

That’s Changed Their Attitude

I work in a video game store that rents console time. At the time of this story, I have a bit of a cold, so I’m wearing a surgical mask and I have occasional coughing fits.

Today, a group from the local high school is playing. For some reason, they seem to find me coughing amusing, as when they hear it, they start mock-coughing and laughing.

When it comes to paying, they still are mock-coughing when they think I’m not looking. I’m so fed up that, as they are about to receive their change, I remove my mask and proceed to cough on the coins before I hand them to them. Obviously, they look offended, to which I answer, “Sorry, since you seemed to find my coughing funny, I thought you’d find hilarious if I coughed on your change.”

I’m usually not this petty, but they seem to understand and leave without saying anything.

The Perfect Man

(I work at a 24-hour coffee shop inside a university campus. I’ve seen plenty of people in the morning in which they’re not fully human.)

Me: “Here you go, miss, a large mocha!”

Customer: *stares at the cup*

Me: “Miss?”

Customer: *grabs the cup, raises her head, and stares right through me*

Me: “Uh… are you okay?”

Customer: “I love chocolate. One day, I’ll make a chocolate man, marry him, and then eat him!

Me: “You do that.”

Robbed Of Their Chance To Rob The Place

, , , | Legal | January 6, 2020

One day, while I am standing on the sidewalk, waiting for my ride, I see some junkie pull a knife on the cashier of a nearby pharmacy. Now, this wouldn’t be that surprising, except for the fact that there’s a police station right across the street from said pharmacy, just behind me. 

I don’t even get out my cellphone; I just tap on the window and point when a couple of the officers inside look up from their paperwork.

They realize what’s happening, bolt out of the door, run seven yards, and tackle the would-be robber. Idiot.

It Made Cents To Just Stick To The Original List

, , , , , | Working | November 12, 2019

It’s my first day working at a very small office. I don’t really have a specific role; I just do whatever is needed. My boss asks me to make a “shopping list” with all the office supplies we’ll need during the month, and their respective prices taken from the stores’ websites. I present a list of $208 worth of items. 

The next day, my boss takes the list but goes to a completely different store that I hadn’t considered in my research, and ends up buying other things. Between these discrepancies and some sales, her total spending comes up to… $208.10. She laughed and said she should’ve taken me to the casino for good luck.
