Clive:
That is an interesting point that it might be a regional variation.

Let's say that you are a cashier and you came up short for the night, meaning that you ended your workday with less cash in your register than your sales total.
Is it acceptable in your area to say, "My drawer was short"?
Hi,

That sounds OK to me, although cashiers may have other special jargon I don't know about.

eg I think they often talk about their 'tray' rather than their drawer, since they bring the tray and insert it in the drawer.

They might also just say 'I'm short', eg 'I'm short $20'.
