Dear Service Industry People:
I'm not one to complain much. I really understand that you are making minimum wage and couldn't give a rats ass about how I feel. However, I feel I must offer these words of advice:
DO NOT, under any circumstances, hand me my change with the bills on the bottom, change on top of the bills, and receipt on top of the change.
Handing your customers a cluster*uck of money does not make us happy. It annoys us and makes us grumpy customers. We drop the change. We drop the receipt. And as a result, we are more likely to take our time putting our goopy mess in to our wallets and keeping the customers behind us waiting...and ultimately, you waiting as well. In case no one has taught you proper protocol, may I suggest the following?
If you are giving me $4.36 cents in change, please put the coins in my hand first. Then top my hand with the dollar bills, and then say "and here's your receipt" and put that in the hand of my choice. And if you are really feeling cheeky, you may want to count my money back to me. I know, I know, this takes precious time out of your already busy schedule. But hey! You have to be there for the next six hours anyway, right?
Your boss has not been happy with you. I am not a mind reader, I know this because nearly everywhere I go, I get the wrong change back. Doesn't your boss notice the missing money from your till? Within the past month, I have gotten incorrect change back nine times. In every single instance but one, you have given me too much money back. In one case, I paid with a $100 bill and received $121.32 in return. This is more profitable then playing the stock market!
Thank goodness that I am honest, but I suspect that some of your other customers are not.
And one more thing....... please stop giving me dirty looks when I close my hand after you put the bills in my hand. This is just a signal that you will have to wait while I transfer the bills to my other hand so that I may take the change without dropping it on the floor, or worse, all over the pavement through a drive-through.
