I just want to vent and I don’t care if no one reads, however, if you want to talk about something that pisses you off in your life post it and I’ll read it and respond.
I got a job after last school semester for the summer and fall semester and I deal with a lot of customers. Some are very kind and intelligent, some are assholes, you get all kinds of people really. But, the kind of person that really makes me mad is the person that views you as a lesser human, a sub-human if you will because you work at a convenient store. Regardless of your education, or backround, you are a lesser human because you wear the uniform for an entry level job.
I had some old dick come in right before I was about to close my register. Keep in mind I need a specific amount of money to close, and big bills like 50’s or 100’s will fuck it up. This old white guy in a Hawaiian button up shirt brings up a miller light, the premier bear for white trash like this asshole. He wants a specific 20 dollar lotto scratch off, another item commonly bought by the uneducated gambling addicted morons who don’t understand how to intelligently invest their money. He also asks if I can break a 100 dollar bill. I say no I cannot because I’m about to close my register. So, I ring up the beer, and then I walk over to the scratch off he wants and say, “you want this one right?” He says yes, I ring it up and then he hands me a 100. I say, “Sorry, but as I said I can’t break this.” He says, “then why did you get the scratch off?” As if I was supposed to read his mind and know that he has no other method of payment other than 100 dollar bills for the scratch off. I politely say that I said I couldn’t break the 100 and that I’m sorry. He repeats himself wondering why I got the scratch off. I tell him, that I didn’t know that my ability to break the 100 was a prerequisite for his ability to buy the scratch off. He looks away and then firmly says, “well you’re an idiot.”
Obviously, I can’t say shit here because I can’t lose my job and that’s not something I can afford since I have to build a list of good references and getting fired just doesn’t look good nor does empty spaces in time where I’m unemployed if I decide to omit this job from my resume. So, I stay silent, regardless of the fact that I know I’m right and this guy is a giant fucking cunt knocker. Then again I probably just need to take a giant chill pill.
I don’t care if no one reads this, I just wanted to vent a little. Yea, I a little mad.
