    (I am in a line to pay for my meal at a pay-by-weight salad bar that is self-serve. The customer ahead of me has a small salad and hands the cashier a 20 bill. He receives 19 dollars and loose change back.)

    Customer: “Wait, that can’t be right. The salad should be about 4 dollars. Let me weigh that again.”

    Cashier: “No! That’s the price. You’re holding up the line.”

    (Ignoring him, the customer reaches over and weighs the salad again while the cashier protests. The salad weighs in at about 4 dollars.)

    Customer: “See? It should cost more.”

    Cashier: “Go. You paid, you’ve got your change, get out!”

    Customer: *shrugs*

    Me: “Can I get 3 dollars off my salad too?”

    Cashier: “What?”

    Me: “Yeah, you gave that guy a discount.”

    Cashier: “Wait… what?”

    (The manager wanders over and I explain what has happened. He turns to the cashier.)

    Manager: “Why did you do that?”

    Cashier: “I thought he was cheating me!”

    Manager: “By paying more?!”

    (That was the last time I saw the cashier working there.)
