$5 per transaction. Robbery happened near the end of the day. You don't think there were 88 cash transactions during the course of the day?

Subby + Unlikely tag = FAIL.

I must admit, when I got to the unlikely part I lol'ed.
 
2007-08-07 02:39:36 PM
Oddly enough, the robbery was temporarily sucessful, even with the imaginary sword.
 
2007-08-07 02:41:19 PM
$440 is not a lot for many businesses to keep in a cash drawer. I think $600 is about the limit at many places I've worked at.

If he hadn't been caught this would have made a pretty good step 2.

1) Live homeless in the woods.
2) Claim to have Excaliber.
3) $440 profit!

I used to work at subway and am geting a kick out of the replies =P


Anyway, 440 bucks? Damn someone is not doing their job. You are not supposed to go over 150 at any time. then again after i left and went to different subways to eat i have seen the laziest people there.

When I managed at BK, they always told us "Just give them the money. We have insurance to cover that kind of stuff." Still though, I don't think I could have stopped laughing long enough to get the till open.

You're supposed to drop any twenties into a drop safe, and a manager is supposed to count up, bag, and safe money at all change of shifts and end of business day. It is rather unlikely that a register would be holding $440 in the register.

Somebody is going to be visiting the unemployment office, I think.

This was obvi an inside job. Seen similar things happen....

my buddy robbed a subway with a cap gun back in high school. he planned it out with this mormon kid who worked there, they were going to split it. they didn't plan on a customer seeing it from outside and calling the cops... who showed up and found my buddy hiding under a car about a mile away an hour later.

the reality of the situation hit him as the cops were dragging him out by his ankles, saying "you stupid kid, you almost got shot over $100 and a cap gun?"

he's special forces now.

Yeah, you're not really understanding what Subby meant. See, if you'd ever worked retail before (Blockbuster in college for me) you'd learn that most companies never keep more than $100-150 in a drawer. When they go over that amount, they start making "drops". A drop is where they bag the money, mark the bag with how much money they put in, then drop it into a safe that's often times only openable by a manager/store-manager at the end of the business day/night.

Anyway, yeah $400 is unusual I'd say. Obviously they weren't that busy at the moment since there weren't many others in the place at the time of this ..uhm.. robbery, so yeah, the goofball behind the counter may likely get reprimanded for not making a drop.

I wonder if he pulled it from the stone himself...

Was it forged when the world was young and bird and beast and flower were one with man and death was but a dream?
 
2007-08-07 02:49:21 PM
Um....last time I got a combo meal at Subway it ran about $8-$9.

"He recognized 56-year-old Young from past experience as a transient who lived in the nearby woods."

Excaliber? He should have robbed Round Table.
 
2007-08-07 02:53:34 PM
If he had been a duck, he could have eaten free.

Man, for the prices they charge for their pizza, he'd walk out of there with over $1k!

Spelling Nazis, what's up?

Excalibur

They may do that at Subway. But I moonlight at a gourmet food retailer, and it's easy to accumulate $400 in the till during a rush period. Hell, I start my shift with $200, in case 5 people in a row want cash back on their debit card.
 
2007-08-07 02:57:38 PM
BTW it's Excalibur not Excaliber
 
2007-08-07 02:58:02 PM
I don't know how Subway stays in business. They have to worst sub rolls ever. They taste like hotdog rolls.
 
2007-08-07 02:58:09 PM
Way to go, 12bnbda, you beat me to it.

Now I don't have to be a Nazi.

Going from my wonderful experience at McDonald's back in high school, drawers were only counted/dropped/whatnot at the end of a shift. If you worked drivethru during the lunch rush on a weekend, you could hit a grand.

Claims to be armed with the sword Excaliber

Trust me guys, this is NOT a good pickup line.

subway is better than quiznos. quizno's subs just aren't toasty, no matter what those little cubist rodents say.

Dually noted, thank you. I'll be sure to hit a Mickey D's on the way home...

ha! See what I did there? That was a double-ent... oh nevermind.

Interesting though, seems a bit less secure but if that's how they gotta run business, they're apparently doing well at it.

I've worked for Toys R Us, Subway, and a Kroger grocery store, and such a limit was never imposed. It'd be impossible. People can drop over a hundred on to you in one transaction.

Not as much the case for Subway, but the register wasn't emptied all that much and people used twenties a lot.

Oh, also... you working for Blockbuster sort of explains why you think that. There's a lot more idle time at at a video store (I've worked at one of those too) where you could actually do something like empty the register. At most places everyone is working and you're getting money dumped on you so fast that it's not possible to empty the register constantly.

There can be only one
 
2007-08-07 03:16:20 PM
I work at a grocery store where the drawers start at $500, and don't get pulled until they reach $1000, and I'm getting a kick out of these replies.
