About a week ago, I was counting down my drawer and got distracted by a customer and had to turn around for 2 seconds.
After I helped them I went back to counting when all of a sudden I noticed that the stack of checks I had sitting on top of the drawer were missing.
I went nuts... I KNEW that a customer couldn't have grabbed them, because even though my back was turned, it was only for a second, I was still standing RIGHT in front of the register, and in order to reach it they would have had to climb half-way up on the counter (It's a pretty big counter, and the register is set off to the side of where the customers stand.)
So ther I am, wondering what happened to them. I'm looking everywhere, but I can't find them. My manager asked me what was wrong, and I told him... but it took him a minute to realize that I really couldn't find em, and was actually pretty worried about it.
Turns out, when I was helping the customer I didn't leave the drawer all the way open like I thought, I closed it about half-way, and the checks got snagged on the top part of the drawer and had fallen BEHIND it. (Inside the opening where the drawer sits, but behind the actual moving parts.
I had to reach back through an opening about [----------] that wide, and fish all the checks back out (there was 4 or 5 of em). Scrapped my hand up pretty good too. There's quite a few pointy metal things back there.
My manager thought it was funny... jackass
