The money was off at the end of the afternoon

Sometimes at the end of the afternoon, our currency register will be a dollar short or a dollar over.

This is a normal occurrence when dealing with currency transactions. A sales clerk might grab a nickel instead of a quarter or vice versa. Or she might grab 2 $1 bills instead of more than 2 or more than 2 instead of 2. These mistakes are going to happen from time to time. They should never happen frequently. I hired an up-to-date employee named Max to job at the counter in the medical marijuana dispensary. We take only currency transactions, so our employees deal with thousands of dollars every afternoon. Max started working on Monday. She was on the currency register all afternoon. At the end of the afternoon, Max’s register was short $5. Since it was Max’s first time working at the marijuana dispensary, I did not say anything about the short balance. The next afternoon, Max’s register was even shorter. This time there was $23 missing from the till. I asked Max to speak with myself and others when she was done with her shift. I told Max about the missing money from that afternoon and the previous afternoon. Max did not have a lot to say, even though she did not make excuses either. I do not believe Max was pocketing the money. It would be difficult to steal from the dealer, because there are cameras all around the dispensary. Still, it might be time to find a weird job for this particular employee. Max might do better in the stock room or fulfilling orders.
