One time, I finished my shift and shopped around for a while with my mum afterwards. It was a busy Saturday because it was 20x points for our rewards card so that’s what we were doing as well. We finished shopping an hour later and got into the (very long) line.
There were only 2 people on cash, a cashier and the supervisor, which I thought was weird because I knew there were 2 more cashiers somewhere (I later found out they were both on break. Why the fuck would they do that?)
It was so busy that my supervisor looked at me with very sad eyes and asked if I could possibly hop on the empty register. I said yes, so I literally hopped over the bagging area and logged in. Since I didn’t have a till in, I could only accept debit and credit. I voiced it loudly, I asked for customers who can ONLY pay with DEBIT OR CREDIT.
Yet, my first customer, I asked how she was paying and she told me with cash. I then told her I was unable to serve her and she told me this was unacceptable and that I should put up a sign saying I can’t take cash.
Yes, I should definitely find the time to write and post a sign that I can’t take cash for the 15 minutes I helped out on cash. Seriously. You saw me jump on cash, you know I’m not even working. I’m doing you a favour and yet you think it’s terrible of me to not take your cash. People honestly amaze me sometimes.
