Ughs. Beating myself up over mistake at work

I made a mistake at work. Currently with covid we only typically run 1 cashier, however we have two registers. Only one drawer has cash. My shedule overlaps with another cashier by a few minutes. We had customers come in right after I clocked in, and I hopped on the cashless register to help out. Of course, the customer pays with cash.

The amount was 54.00. I swear I counted 3 fives, 2 tens, and a twenty. Well, I would normally set the money on counter in sight of customer, and get the 1.00 change. Recount money as I place it in drawer. Unfortunately, I just handed it to co worker and she set it in bottom of drawer to keep it seperate from her money. She handed me a dollar, and I handed it to customer.

I’m beating myself up over this 5.00. I’ve looked everywhere. No idea. Freaking out.

Oh well, I guess I will survive

Mistakes happen, we are only human after all, let it go and all will work itself out. Xx

Thank you both. I’ve read through the handbook, and I’m under threshold of allowable shortage. So, all is okay. I was just overthinking it. It felt good to type it out though.

Thank you for reading.
