i did something dumb today, i guess not too funny, but it was dumb.
i work in a shitty parking booth, so basically i get paid to read. knit, browse the net etc, summer student job. anyways, the booth up near the hospital they still do the system by hand because of construction they can't upgrade everything. so my point is, all the tickets i sell are already numbered,i.e 327300-327600 were my range of tickets today. i was counting my cash and i kept coming up short. turns out i was short 200$ and i start freaking out. no i didn't steal it, yes i wish i could, haha, but anyways, so for about 30 minutes, i'm trying not to cry and i have people check the change bag to see if i didn't accidently give in too many 20$ bills when getting change for my float. later this dude comes in when i'm going for a break to the loo, i come back and tell him what happened, asking him to try and see if money fell inside the register (which has been known to happen). we count up everything 2 times more over the 4+ times i counted and i'm still missing about 200$, turns out, my epic fail was that i had put a stack of tickets #327400-327450 over tickets #327387-327399 and had sold my tickets out of sequence, so basically i was calculating my deposit to be 12 tickets more than i had actually sold. case in point, 13x16$=208$. in the end, my cash was still 4$ short, but i think i'd rather -4, than 200...let's just say my boss was relieved and i'm fucking glad i didn't have to lose the last two days of my salary.
