First of all I'd like to say a lot of the cashiers work very hard and unsociable hours. You imagine working from 6 in the evening to 3 or 4 in the morning every night. I personally would be very wary of waking them or and I would never dream of throwing a bucket of water over them. Most of the cashier's I know have boyfriends who would be very angry if someone did it to them.

A male can also be a cashier, it's not gender-specific

Quite possibly your English has let you down if you think that 'cashier' = girls that work in bars and who are not prostitutes.

Check the pic in the OP. Not a girl and not a bar.

I ticked "find a bucket of water" but actually I would wake him/her up. In Cambodian-run businesses, the cashiers usually need to pay out of pocket if the cash comes up short.

It is normal for people who work in their own shops to have a sleep when there are no customers. They expect to be woken up. Normally, Cambodians dont steal from them when they are sleeping.

I'm reminded of this dozing shop keeper and thief.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.
