A disagreement between my boss and myself?

A disagreement between my boss and myself? Topic: How to write a petty cash receipt
June 26, 2019 / By Natalee
Question: I've been working as a delivery driver for the past 3 months. My boss called me tonight right after I left saying that he had given me a bank (or petty cash) and that he showed $20 under which is the amount of the bank. He got into how he gave me the petty cash as we were talking since I asked what was happening while he was giving me the money (to jog my memory). Weekend that call with me being agreeable. But as I drove home I kept thinking and I couldn't remember getting that amount. Eventually I went back to the store and talked with his boss also working with us that night. I know I didn't take the petty because I remember making enough in cash proceeds to create my own petty. I always go to the highest in charge when it comes to cash concerns since ultimately they are in charge. I've been known to be forgetful but I was called about an hour ago and my mind still hasn't come up with the memory (I also have eidetic memory, but sometimes bad recall. But it never takes this long to bubble up). This has happened before where the same boss was $20 under but didn't have a reason to blame it on anyone else. So from my standpoint he has motive to say that I had $20 more then what I actually earned. The biggest problem is that during my initial job interview I admitted to being fired from my last job because I was $25 under in my proceeds. So they may look at that and determine I'm lying. Also I admittedly made about $60 in tips tonight working five hours (which usually $40 is the norm). Last night I made $80. For the past two weeks I've been making more then usual in tips. Hell last Sunday I made twice the amount then usual. I'm positively sure he didn't give me any petty. I remember stressing out about it most of the night until I had enough cash to have a complete petty. But my record doesn't look favorable based on my last job (but on a side note I did keep that job for six years and I went usually a year between being written up for underages). I could give him the $20 to save myself hassle and possible termination, but I don't want to give him the impression that he can do this again if it happens again. Do I fight it or give him the money?

Give him the money. In the future, if he gives you petty, ask to sign a paper that you have received it, (use a receipt book) and then have him sign it when you give the petty back

You have 2 choices, pay it and NEVER EVER accept monies without a witness no matter what or fight it and lose the job and move on but you will go away with another shortage issue on your resume. You know how many years most people work without ANY underages?

Take the job but be prepared to loudly say no and quit if the rumors are true. Sometimes people get angry over justifiable firing and spread rumors about folks that aren't true.
