(lest you think we forgot)
Last Thursday was supposed to be our 2nd giveaway of the year. Unfortunately, I had a raging migraine... so this week we're doubling up.
Today I purchased 2 $5 giftcards to Target (I was there).
Then I immediately handed one over to our cashier. I just had the feeling she was the person.
In fact, I think she may have been the employee I had noticed the 1st week and debated giving it to.
Well, she was very grateful.
But not 30 seconds later I was approached by the floor manager saying that she couldn't except it.
And I could fill out an employee recognition form to send to corporate instead.
Hmm... not exactly what I had had in mind.
Of course I did.
While this is going on there is much hullaballo at the customer service desk about all of this.
It seems they all agree my cashier is VERY DESERVING. One of their best employees.
And so sweet.
The customer service manager said she wouldn't have taken it away.
They pointed out that that is just how great the cashier is... she is too nice to break the rules.
They all wished she just hadn't told anyone; then she could have kept it.
So I said "If I give this back to her, and you aren't looking, will that be alright."
They all agreed.
So I marched back over to her and put it on her register.
I'm not sure she knew what to make of it.
I do hope she keeps it.
(She's the cashier, with her back to us, all the way on the end)
Maybe my next mission will go better?
