Retail Hell Memories: You stole my ID!



From u/Quickbrownkitten  Tales From Retail:

This happened a few years ago back when I was a cashier at a small grocery store.

The owner had a rule that you had to keep busy, no matter what so between working the checkout counter I was washing the sliding glass doors (relevant later).

Cue Jack Wagon (JW) bringing up beer and some other stuff with his Idiot Girlfriend (IG). I stopped cleaning and went to the counter and gave a polite greeting.

I checked out the groceries and when I reached the beer I asked for his ID. He gave it to me and I double checked it.

I handed it back and he put it in his wallet. He paid and I wished them a good day. That’s when he flipped out on me.

JW: my ID?

Me: oh I already gave it back to you!

JW: No you didn’t I would have remembered

IG: yeah I didn't see her hand it back

Me: no I gave it back and you put it in your wallet

JW: no you didn’t you still have it

Me: why would I keep it? Cuz we look a lot alike (side note I’m very sarcastic. This guy was a guy and maybe in his late 20s, tall, red hair. I am a female, barely 110 pounds, mid teens, blonde)

This guy did not like my answer.

JW: So you are trying to steal my ID!

IG: just give it back before you get fired!

Me: I don’t have it, you put it in your wallet!

JW: no I don’t see it! (Pulls out wallet and what do you know! The ID is in there!) whatever let’s go.

So the guy and his girlfriend leave and I think that’s the end of it. I go back to washing the windows (on the outside of the building). A couple minutes later, a car pulls up next to me and yells “stupid bitch!” And throws an empty plastic water bottle at me (they missed).

Ah the days of the grocery store.

Tl;dr : ring a guy up for alcohol look at his ID and give it back. He accuses me of stealing it, doesn’t like my sarcasm, his gf tries to get me fired, they later throw trash at me with horrible aim
