For those not familiar with Canadian money, our $1.00 and $2.00 currency come in the form of coins now. Anyway, his order was $7.00 plus change.
The girl gave him the right change. Then a few seconds later she said "No! Wait!" and asked for the money back and proceeded to give him change for a $20.00 bill. He took it and I saw him smirk and he put the money in his pocket.
I'm way too honest! I saw what happened and while we were both standing there I told the girl that he only gave her $8.00, not $20.00. He denied it and said he gave her $20.00.
I felt badly for the girl. I know for a fact that till was short at the end of the shift and that she had to make up the loss. I don't know why she didn't call the manager and demand that the till be closed and a cash count done.
Yes, the place was busy and had a long line up, but it would have been to her best interest.
One day I was in the bank and cashed a check. This was when I was 14 or so. The check was for $60.00 or something. Money my mom had received for a sweater that she crocheted for someone. She was in the hospital and asked me to go cash it for her. The girl at the bank proceeded to give me over $600.00!!! I told her that it was too much. She insisted it was right even when I told her that it was too much. Finally she looked at the cheque and nearly passed out when she saw that she was trying to give me 10 times the amount. I'm sure there are people who would take the money and run. I can't do that.
Yesterday I accidently walked out of Safeway with 2 bags of groceries. I was only taking 1 bag home and having the rest delivered. I noticed when I was in the cab that I had an extra bag. I got out and went back in and the person that was behind me was still there. They hadn't even noticed a bag was missing. It was a bag of meat products, so I could have had a very expensive "gift" had I been dishonest.
