if i am still running a one direction blog in the year 2016 when we get a new fucking president of the united states i’m gonna need somebody to come to my house and slap me in the fucking face
JUST KIDDING I AM 1D AF 4 LIFE GOODNIGHT
sadly, a person making minimum wage in america would be baffled by seeing a bill larger than a $5 or $1. a good cartoon.
written by someone that’s never been to or worked in retail
"you deserve poverty for giving me poor customer service"
I hope the person who made that cartoon dies a painful death.
and furthermore I’ll work circles around you, dickhead.
oh ps. what kind of name is Rob Smith Jr?????
"*this is a true story"
somehow i highly doubt it.
As someone who has done a lot in retail; this is literally impossible. The damn cash register tells you what change to give. The artist definitely pulled this one out of their ass
Ass, brain, whats the difference?
The best part that undermines the cartoonist’s intent is that, if she’s demanding $11/hour and the meal is $10.60, it means right now she can’t even afford to eat where she works with an hour’s pay.
And even if this was a true story (which is like really clearly isn’t)
IT’S FULLY MORE LIKELY that there was some sort of counterfeit 20$ bill problem in the area
Because I see that ALL THE TIME, they have to call a manager because they know they aren’t supposed to just take the 20s in case their fake but maybe they don’t have the easy way to check the bill on them or something.
Like if your assumption is that someone sitting in front of a big computer/calculator machine all day doesn’t know how to give you change you’re just shitty tbh
you can tell robsmithjr.com what you think of his shit comic

i made min. wage when i had to count all the registers AND THE SAFE in a supermarket and do wire transfers for thousands of dollars that i counted by hand. but yeah, totally baffled by anything larger than a $5 bill…
i’ve had customers at my current retail job talk to me like i’m an idiot because they gave ME incorrect change and then refuse to listen when i explain their mistake
i deal with grown adults on a regular basis who need to be walked through using their debit card on a pin pad, but clearly make more money than i do. and i can assure you most people can’t do basic math in their heads judging from my 10+ years of experience in retail. that’s why calculators exist, jfc
but more importantly, the comic creator is literally saying that 1) if a person works in min. wage jobs it’s because they’re “stupid” 2) if a person can’t do math in their head they’re useless and deserve to live in poverty
and that’s completely vile and they should be ashamed of themselves
People who make arguments like “minimum wage workers can’t do math in their head and are stupid” don’t know how a POS machine works.
You literally press however much was given and it does the math for you.
This minimizes any extra work you have to do to figure out how much change to give them.
The fucking bills are organized in the register along with change so you literally only need basic arithmetic to figure out how much change to give someone. When a store says they don’t take something higher than a $20 it’s usually because they don’t have enough to dole out change without emptying the register and registers are required to have a specified amount of money in them in order for transactions togo smoothly.
I worked in retail, it’s so fucking simple but retail and fast food workers deserved to be paid a LIVING WAGE for being on their feet for 8+ hours a day dealing with your self-aggrandizing ass. I worked at GameStop and the fucking assholes I did not get paid enough to be dealing with those assholes.
And I wish we’d stop calling it minimum wage and start calling it LIVING wage, because whatever job you have should pay you enough to be able to afford to live off of.
Also, and I was always VERY self-conscious of this whenever I was working a register—
when a customer at the last second changes their mind about how they’re going to pay after I’ve already put the amount into the register — like say they were going to give me just an even $20 and then they’re like “okay hold on I have 58 cents” — it just…stops me in my tracks. it’s not that I can’t do math, it’s that I am REALLY bad at performing even simple tasks on the spot. my brain literally snags — I’m like this even when I’m making a phone call that I made a script for and the other person doesn’t follow the script I expected, I just sort of shut down and stumble over what to do next.
and people look at me like I’m stupid, or start taking a really patronizing tone, and I get even more mixed up.
I have ADHD, OCD, and a host of anxiety issues. my neurotype affects how I complete tasks, how I process information (including sensory stuff), etc. and although over the years I’ve gotten a bit better at being like “it’s okay, this is my neurotype and I don’t need to be ashamed”, I can still be sent back to square one in terms of internalized shame as soon as I perceive that someone is judging me badly because of the way my brain works. and the anxiety that produces makes it 10x harder to do what I’m trying to do, because surprise!, anxiety and stress make it harder to do stuff.
tl;dr don’t be an ass, retail and service workers don’t get paid nearly enough to put up w/ that shit
eta: oh also — even if someone can’t do arithmetic for whatever reason, that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve to be paid a living wage and it doesn’t mean they deserve to be looked down on or considered ‘stupid’. there are a lot of reasons someone might not be able to do certain tasks that may seem ‘easy’ to most people (e.g. disability, education level, etc.) and whatever the reason, people’s worth shouldn;t’ be judged on that basis.
i want to make friends but at the same time no
