So where I work, we have a tip jar by the register, which provides more incentive for us to be super nice and smiley to our customer in hopes of earning more tips to take home on payday in addition to our paychecks. (And trust me, it’s nice taking home an extra $50-70 a pay period.)
ANYWAYS! An older lady comes to my counter, her total was $5.77, and instead of handing me the next dollar up, of which I saw plenty of in her wallet, she first hands me a five and then proceeds to count change, only to find she was 15 cents short. So instead of just giving me a $1, she tries to reach into the tip jar, going, “I’ll just get the rest out of here.” I replied, “Ma’am, that’s the tip jar.” And she proceeds to throw a fit and ask why it was such a big deal, her taking from the jar. I ended up telling her it was fine that she was 15 cents short and just sent her on her way.
I’m sorry, but that’s the money I’ve been working hard for, and I’m not going to essentially pay for part of your purchase.
