What do you do when you find a Sleeping Cashier? (Kampot Poll)

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

went with the bucket of water option on the understanding that this meant "do anything to wake him up".
Without knowing the guy and his backstory he is probably overworked and underpaid. Possibly working another job or studying too so give the guy a break tbh.
I find almost all expats here are inherently honest and while a few make the news I feel most, irrelevant of their lifestyle choice, would wake the guy up, have a laugh with him for having had to do this and then pay and leave.

From the OIC- Only in Cambodia Group:

"You go to pay your bill and find that the cashier won't wake up to your voice, taps on the shoulder nor a car horn blaring ~10m away. He's the only human in sight.

Do you:

A) Leave without paying

B) Leave and come back to pay later

C) Pinch his phone

D) Put exact change on the table in front of him and hope nobody else picks it up

E) Find a bucket of water

I would do what I do if I am missing something the next day —.
Go back and find out if they recognize me or if I left anything behind before I have to ask ... sometimes , No body is sure ... in that case , I would say I was there last night and ask for my bill .
Even if I get mad any place for them being slow or forgetting something obvious I might give them a dirty look ,
but I still leave them a dollar .

What do you do when you find yourself sleeping with the cashier?

Nothing different, still check the docket.

I got my first pack of smokes this way as a kid. I went to a corner store to buy an ice cream but the cashier wasn't there so I left the money for the ice cream on the counter and I leaned over and took a pack of Marlboro and ran out. I can't have been older than 12 years old which just goes to show what a G I was even at an early age living the thug life.

That dont sound right. I always thought the Marlboro kid rode a horse out.

‘Bucket of water’ option chosen as its closest to

-bang the table loudly*
-sound the fire alarm
-sit, relax and chug a beer while awaiting the awakening
