Abducted by the grumpies!

Fair warning, I am writing this while I am at work on a late Friday afternoon. I can't say where exactly it is that I work but I can say that it is for a company that does pay day loans, cashes checks, handles western unions, and sells money orders.

So, this one goes out to all my customers...

Do you people seriously think that I just sit behind my counter and make all this s*#t up as I go along? DO YOU?
Because guess what I DON'T!!! In fact, I don't make any of this stuff up, any of it! I have absolutely no deciding factor when it comes to my companies decisions for how they want to run their business!
I know it can seem a little bit confusing because it your eyes I have all the power, because I am the one who takes all your money. But guess what, it is all an illusion. I HAVE NO POWER AT ALL!!! (So sobbing out your life story to me is not going to get you anywhere!)

So please, for the love of God and all that is holy and decent in this world QUIT YOUR BITCHING!!!

To the young man, we will call Devin, who was just in here, YES if you want to cash your pay check it will be 3%! It has always been 3%, it will probably always be 3%, and if you ever go to any other financial institution other than like freaking Walmart or your actual bank they will tell you the same exact thing! So don't come in here with your...

"Are you f-ing kidding me! That can't be f-ing right! Are you f-ing serious?"

YES I AM! Because like I said I don't make this s*#t up! Go get a freaking bank account if you don't like it and get the hell out of my store!

And you! Yes, you little miss cranky pants whom we will call Betty! Yeah that is right, I AM TALKING TO YOU!

NO, I did not just randomly decide to change the price of my money orders when I saw you pull up! In fact they have been the same price for a year and a half. So don't you come in here with your...

"Oh my God that is so expensive! Why are your money orders so expensive! I can get one for 2 sickles down at the 5 and Dime! I just can't believe they are they expensive!"

Lady, it is a freaking money order that because Western Union charges so much to allow us to sell them, my company hardly makes any money off of it in the first place. So hey you want to go down to the local 5 and dime, give me two seconds and I will draw you a freaking map! And then you can get the hell out of my store!

And to all of you out there that come in here and expect me to hold your hands through every single transaction and then get mad at me when you don't get your way....

I DON'T CARE!!! I am so far beyond the point of caring!!!

And do you want to know why, because it is your finances that we are dealing with here people!!! It is not my responsibility to keep track of how many loans you have had out and what your other payment options could possibly be. They are your finances people! And when you first step in to my store and get a loan through myself or my other employee I know that we give you all the information you could possibly need, and then some, so that you can conduct your business with us in a responsible manner. If you can't hold up your end of the deal...

THAT IS NOT MY FAULT YOU DUMBA#%!!!

But believe me when I say that I am not judging you for needing to have a pay day loan, that is not where all this is coming from. Because I have had to use a pay day loan company before and I have had my own fair share of debt in the past and the present. But I know what I am getting myself into and I don't go whining with my life story to some girl (who is just trying to do her job) when things don't go my way!!!










To all of you that actually read this entry...

Thank you for hanging in there through out all the venting! You are awesome! I promise it will never happen again. Well, at least not about my work :o)

I love how you threw in the sickle comment. Plus, your blog looks *awesome* Poor thing though, having to work at The Place That Shall Not Be Named. I would tell you it gets better, but we both know it doesn't.

Sorry you had such a bad day (week? day? month?) Hopefully you can do some relaxing this weekend. Just be glad you have a job, and hopefully don't have to be on the other side of the counter any time soon. Sorry, but I laughed when reading this...Couldn't help it.

Thank you guys for your comments! They always brighten my day:) In all honesty I really am thankful to have a job and for the most part I do actually enjoy it at times. It was just that yesterday, those two customers I referenced came in back to back and were literally talking to me like I had to be lying to them. So, I got just the whee bit frustrated. Thanks for letting me vent though!

I am with you. If we would make it a mandatory requirement when someone graduates high school they have to spend two years working in a fast food restaurant, everyone would be a little more sympathetic to the plight of those of us that work on the front lines with the general public.

You deserve to curse as much as you want!
