Roxy's Secret Mission

Roxy, a cashier at the local grocery store, is on a secret mission. She says that desperate times call for desperate measures, so when she sees people coming through her line who she knows are struggling really hard to feed their families, she conveniently forgets to scan many of the items in their cart. Roxy knows how unfair life can be. A friend is always telling her that "Hey, life IS unfair, so just get used to it." But Roxy would rather do what she can to help turn things around. She knows that grocery chain she works for has plenty of money and that these poor people in her line do not. She says it doesn't take a rocket scientist to fix that situation, just a well-meaning cashier. Roxy says in these hard times everyone must do what they can to help, even if it means breaking a few rules.

Roxy is in a newspaper box outside the Winn-Dixie on Cordova Road, alongside Southport shopping center in Fort Lauderdale. As cashiers go, she is one of the best,

Thanks Roxy! You are so much better than that checker I had recently, who wanted to help the store and scanned some things twice.

Yeah, Roxy would never do that, but her sister Eloise might. Thanks Joe in Vegas!
