The Scam Doesn’t Fit The Bill

| Right | May 7, 2013

(I’m working the counter during the breakfast shift. The customer pays with a $10 bill. I hand back the change.)

Customer #1: “You shorted me $10; I gave you a $20!”

Customer #2: “You did. I saw him; he paid with a $20.”

Me: “Okay, let me check; just one moment.”

(I go and grab the manager’s keys to open the drawer. I’m already suspicious, since Customer #2 was so quick to speak up. I pull out the entire cash drawer and shelf.)

Me: “There aren’t any $20s in here.”

(I hold up the shelf were we usually put the $20 bills, to show them it’s empty.)

Customer #1: “Um, never mind…”

(After they leave, it dawns on me that the manager had just moments before emptied my drawer of $20s. Thank goodness for that!)
