Someone please tell me that this is a totally inacceptable behavior. I work for a large retail chain for quite a long time. And in that time I would have to say that the most disgusting way a customer has paid for their order has been to reach between her sweaty gargantuan breasts and pull out the damp stinking money to give to me. This has happened many a time and it was always disgusting. However, last night a man wearing an extreemly tight and extremely dirty sweatsuit approached my register and paid for his purchases with a wad of damp money clenched in his hand. He came up seventy-eight cents short. “Wait a minute, I’ve got the change”, he says. He reaches down the BACK of his pants, SO GODDAM FAR HALF OF HIS FREAKIN ARM IS IN THERE, GRUNTS,ROOTS AROUND FOR A BIT AND PULLS OUT A HANDFULL OF PENNIES!!!
Goddam that was nasty.
He puts the money on the counter I thank him weakly and hand him his reciept.
What in the seven frozen hells am I supposed to do with this money now?
SO I reached under my register and pulled out a roll of clear packing tape, bit off a lenght, and stuck the money to it. I then ran over to hardwear and got a bottle of industrial strenght window cleaner (Spitfire), flipped the tape money side up and sprayed it generously.
I daubbed the excess off with a paper towel and then put another piece of tape on top and stuck the whole mess into my drawer.
Can anyone else relate disgusting customer stories and what they did after?
I’m off to go burn my hands.
