A guy tried to scam me at work. This guy comes to the register and he had this sheet with stickers on it for me to scan. It's like this sheet of paper with a bunch of price stickers on it of things he bought. I'd never rung one up before except for from the meat dept. But then, somebody from the meat dept. would come along with them and actually scan the products themselves with my handheld scanner gun. (This is usually a couple who comes in to buy meat in bulk for a restaurant).
Anyhow....this guy gave me the sheet. I told him I never rang one up before and I asked him if was just supposed to scan each sticker and he said yes. He was obviously buying a bunch of drinks for resale and he did not have them with him so I figured they were out back already in his truck. I scanned each sticker once and it rang up to something like $99. Not long after I went home from my lunch break. When I got back one of the CSM's asked me if I scanned a sheet with stickers on it and I said....yeah, why? He said they stopped the guy at the door (they must have been watching him) because what nobody told me was the each sticker had a little quantity number on the side and so the whole order was actually supposed to be $1400. I guess the guy was trying to make it out before anyone noticed. I talked to 3 other cashiers and not one of them had ever scanned a sheet like that either or knew anything about it. I told them they need to bring this up at the next cashier's meeting which is coming up in a few days and they agreed. It would be nice if we'd been told how to scan these things when we get our training. :(
Yesterday I decided to bake some zucchini bread. I got the whole bag of zucchini grated and froze much of it in 2 cup measurements. I saved some out to make bread with.So I figure I'll double up on the recipe. Well I don't know where I went wrong because it was very difficult to stir and the batter was like paste. So I threw in an extra egg and decided to bake it anyhow. I baked it....and baked it....and baked it and it did not seem to cook. After about an hour (and this is for mini bread pans) it looked done but not really brown. The top feels a bit hard. So I take it out of the oven to cool. I went to check them later and notice that they all sunk in and the middles were hollow. Well into the trash they went! I have to laugh about it cause I messed up somewhere and probably added too much flour. Next time I'll stick to a single recipe and make two separate batches.
For anyone who blogs.....when you are replying to comments how do you get your reply for each comment to go under that particular comment? I can never figure this out and my comments are all jumbled up.
