Truth or a lie
Tonight a customer came to see me. He told me that he bought a box of soap powder but he went back without it. He only brought back the other items.
It was me who calculated his items the previous night. So I asked him for his receipt. He said he had thrown it away. He told me that he came into our shop at 9.10 pm and left around 9.45 pm.
Immediately I browsed the cctv numerous times but I realized that it's impossible for me to track the time. I had to ask my part-time worker who had helped him to carry his stuff. He couldn't recall any box of soap powder.
Since I was rather busy too, I told him to just get a new box as a replacement. But he insisted on watching the cctv. I had no choice but to check the receipt duplicates. He remembered his total payment. Therefore, it was easy for me the track the receipt. With that, I had the time shown on the receipt.
I browsed the cctv again. In a short while, I saw him. There was no box of soap powder to be seen. He still assured us that he was holding that box of soap powder and put it on the counter. But the cctv clearly shown that there was none.
After realizing that, he said, "Forget about it."
I said, "No, it's the reality. There's no such item. So sorry about that."
He quickly bought a new box of soap powder and went off..
Is he trying to tell a lie?
According to the boss, "don't trust this kind of people."
But sometimes it's the truth..Luckily I have the cctv to prove it..
