few things are more satisfying than seeing the customer's reaction when they claim you've short-changed them, so you go to count your till with a manager and you were right all along.
In order to avoid the trouble of counting the till always put the money across your cash drawer when counting out the change. When the customer accepts the change and walks away then put it away. Sure, there will be the few that bitch, but then you can recount the drawer. Quick changers usually will give up when you do the former. People with terrible math skills and a sense of “I’m always right” won’t be satisfied until your manager tells them “nope, drawer isn’t off”. And still there will be the few that will insist and call corporate to cry about a dollar or two, if even, they couldn’t rip you off from. No matter how you slice it, it’s like a slice of smooth and sweet cheesecake… Okay, how did this post make me hungry? -Abby
