First, condolences to all of you who have lost your jobs at BN after that bullshit last month.

I am still working as a cashier at a store in the Northeast.

I wanted to ask whether there is any "secret" protocol for managers when employees buy items?

There is one manager who has told me in the past I'm considered a "model employee" and expresses his gratitude that I'm good at selling memberships. But when no one else is around he is cold as shit.

Whenever I buy a book after my shift is over and he is working, he is ALWAYS hovering near the register I'm at before returning to the other side of the counter to stand behind the cashier while the transaction is going through.

I KNOW he knows I'm not stupid/lacking in character/dishonest to steal or try something underhanded. So what gives?

(For the record, I'm not completely white.)

Hmmm. Well, I am completely white... as far as I've been able to tell in my genealogical research... and I think your problem is that you think you know the heart and motivations of another human being from basically zero evidence. Every non-white person in America has experienced discrimination. It ranges from being challenged for "being in the wrong neighborhood" even when they live there... to being told to pay for their restaurant meal before it will be served... to watching a person move to the other side of the street when they are approaching on the sidewalk... to being shot in the back by a cop for being black. Or don't you read/watch/google the news?

For the record, I'm a French/Spanish/Scottish/Irish-American. And that's more or less a joke, which I mention because there's about an even chance that you don't have a sense of humor... since you clearly lack a simple sense of human charity.
