Hey everyone, I just gotta say... It gets tiring at work when people want to play the "Let's hand over our money at the most awkward angle possible so the attendant has to groan and wince just to take it" game...
Anyone else dealing with customers? haha

that's annoying! but these people aren't even thinking you have any arthritic problem, not even crossing their minds.
are you like at eye level or are you perched more "up" like in a booth or on a chair?

does your employer know? accomodations should be made for your situation, because overstressing a joint can aggrevate RA.
what i'd do?...i would hand them their purchase or change right back at em' at the most inconvenient & awkrward position! ;) LOL
