So I've been using a Walmart Money Card since I got back in the work force. I have issues with banks after some personal issues I had a few years back and as we all know you can't do much with cash anymore. Ya gotta have a debt card. So with that this morning.
This has been eating at me since 8 this morning and I had to tell someone so I found this community. I went into the Walmart Money Center at 8am to cash my check. I took it up to the young lady I signed it. Handed her my Walmart Debit Card and my ID. I told her I wanted X amount of dollars in cash and the rest on the card.
She looks at me and actually says I wish you all would Just tell me how much you wanted on the card. I was taken back by this little outburst. Then she grabbed a calculator. Now I didn't ask for an odd amount back in cash. I knew exactly how much was going on my card. It amounted to simple math say I wanted 25 dollars back off of a 100 dollar deposit, so 75 would have went on the card. That's just an example but that was how simple the math was. She fumbled with the calculator for a good 5 mins huffing. When i finally just told her how much it was.
I just couldn't believe they had someone in the Money center who couldn't do something so freaking simple. My other gripe about this is I was unemployed for about a year and half. I have a broadcasting degree and worked in Television. I lost my job when my boss died and the new boss brought her own crew in. Which happened in my line of work. Just the rest of my life fell apart at the same time. But anyway I couldn't find a job in broadcasting to save my life due to the Economy.
So at one point I got so desperate I applied at Walmart. Because I despised being on Unemployment. I failed their stupid little personality quiz. I failed the part that had to do with "policing co-workers" or some such shit.
It just irks me to no end, that this girl who can't subtract by fives mind you has a job because she passed a GDing personality test. Not because she is or will ever be smart enough to do the damn job. Something is wrong in America.
