My advice for the week is PAY ATTENTION TO THE CASHIER!!!
In two recent shopping trips, I have encountered a cashier who was inattentive and another cashier who tried to be slick. The inattentive cashier was overlooking some of my coupons by picking up multiple coupons and scanning only the top coupon. I had to repeatedly tell him he’s missing some of my coupons.
The second cashier was trying to be SLICKKKKKK!!! My total was about $20 so I handed him a gift card with over $200 on it. He scanned my gift card, handed me my receipt but threw my gift card in the trash.
Hold up, wait a minute?!? Did this boy just throw my gift card in the trash?
I said “excuse me but I still have money on that gift card!” He looked at my with a sly grin on his face and said “Oh, my bad!” I felt like he intentionally put my gift card in the trash so that he could keep it for himself. If I was unaware of the balance on my gift card, he could have got me for about $200.
Please pay attention while you shop. Make sure all of your coupons are being scanned, you receive your gift cards and correct amount of change.
