A cashier on TikTok went viral after calling out a customer who claimed she was impatient, simply because she told her she didn’t need 8 extra cents.

“I’m ringing up a customer. Her total is $4.08 and she hands me a 5-dollar bill,” she recalls. “So I open the register and hand it to her.”

From there, @tropicaldiscourse asks the customer if she has 8 cents, so the cashier can simply give her a dollar in change. The woman says she’ll check in her bag. After about 30 seconds, @tropicaldiscourse tries to give the customer the dollar, telling her not to worry about the 8 cents. That’s when the woman gets snappy.

“Please don’t rush me,” the cashier claims the woman said. @tropicaldiscourse then reassured the customer that she wasn’t trying to rush her, instead, she was saving her the trouble.

“[The customer] takes the dollar, and then goes, ‘Can I just say, you really shouldn’t be working in customer service if you don’t have patience. I have anxiety, and you’re rushing me,'” @tropicaldiscourse recalls of their conversation.

“Give me back my dollar, bitch,” she concludes the video. “You owe me 8 cents.”
