So today I ran to the store to buy a few things and the total came up 10.56. I gave the chasier 20.56, but the nickle rolled out and didnt make it into the cashiers hand. I did not notice and she gave me back 9.95, when I told her I gave her 20.56 and should get a 10 back, she told me I gave her 20.51 and at the point I found the nickel on the counter. I asked her to open the drawer and give me a ten back (I needed it for a birthday card), and she was very rude and refused. There was no line behind me and I realize some stores have policies about not making change/opening the drawer due to chances of theft, but I mean, Come on! I used to work retail and if someone gave me funny change like that, I would say something, or would have at least corrected it!
My s/o isnt hone and I just needed to vent!

They are taught that behavior could be a scam - I was in retail management for years and have seen that many times. It's a way to confuse the kid and get back more change that is due. The cashier was just trying to protect her job really. We had very strict policies about the cashiers opening their drawers for any reason except for a sale. Don't blame the kid, they were just doing what they were trained to do.

you might be surprised how many people would be pissed off at her for questioning... most kids just stick to the script b/c someone is always going to be mad at them when working retail ;o(
