I walk by our ashtray that sits on the checkout counter and find a cutter sitting smack in the middle of it a few times a week. This has been going on for years. It happens at all of our locations. I cannot remember exactly when it started but I remember what I thought the first time I saw it. I walked by the dirty ashtray and was going to dump it. There were a couple cigar butts, plenty of ashes and a V Cutter sitting right in the middle. Just to give you some perspective, we have an empty cigar box with cutters, lighters, etc. sitting right next to the ashtray. So, I just thought someone goofed up and flipped the cutter into the ashtray when they were aiming for the box. I cleaned the cutter off and tossed it back into the empty cigar box. Well, a few days later, I was checking the ashtray on the counter again to clean it and whammo, another cutter sitting right in the middle of all that crap in the ashtray. I shook my head, took the cutter out, cleaned it off and tossed it back into the empty box. I am sure I said something like, What the hell? and just moved on. Another couple days after that, I walked by the ashtray on purpose to take a peak and of course nothing but ashes. Hmmm, maybe it was just a fluke. A couple weeks went by and it did not cross my mind. At some point, it popped into my head and I wondered over there and there it was, staring at me, a frickin cigar cutter sitting in the ashtray. I can�t remember exactly what I said but I am sure it went something like, Why the F@$% is there a cutter in the ashtray? I think Courtney piped up and said, Oh, we find them in there all the time. All the time? What the hell is going on here? Why would someone think the right spot for a cutter they just pulled out of a box containing cutter and lighters was in the dirty F@%^&*&* ashtray? What is wrong with people? Who is doing this? I want to know. If you are doing this on purpose to torture me, stop. You know how fragile I can be! So over the last several years, I have been trying to catch someone using a cutter and putting it in the astray. No luck. Mind you, we still find them in the ashtrays all the time. I refuse to use the cameras to find out who was the person who put it there. That would be too easy. I want to catch them in the act and teach them a lesson. You know, like you do with your dog when he chews on a shoe. You have to catch them in the act to have maximum humiliation and so they know what they did wrong. I am looking to have a teachable moment! So as of now, I have yet to catch anyone doing it but we find a cutter in the ashtrays at least 3 times a week. Who are you? Why do you do it? Are you lazy or just an idiot? I would love to hear from anyone who has had similar situations or knows who the perp is?
