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

*goes to robsmithjr.com**sees blurb to see Rob Smith Jr.’s cartoons on Glenn Beck**understands everything*

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

^ this

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.

"DO NOT PUT ALL YOUR TRUST IN ROOT VEGETABLES."
Death, The Truth by Terry Pratchett

"Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colours. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.
The words ran through Tiffany’s mind as she watched the sheep, and she found herself fill up with joy – at the new lambs, at life, at everything. Joy is to fun what the deep sea is to a puddle. It’s a feeling inside that can hardly be contained. It came out as laughter.
‘I’ve come back!’ she announced, to the hills. ‘Better than I went!’"
Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky

IDK if anyone who follows me deals with anxiety and panic but if you do, sometimes what I try to do is remind myself that I only have to do one thing at a time.  I tend to think of my problems as one huge enormous mass of impossible things, but when I pick it apart I realize that it might be difficult to take care of but it’s totally manageable. 

It doesn’t always help, but sometimes it stops a panic attack before it gets out of hand.

discussing the sexism in media is not equivalent to hating it. if I hated everything that was sexist, I’d literally never be able to watch tv or a movie or read comics or leave my house, basically.

I’d like to chill with my weird family too

i feel sick every time i see an obviously candid photo of a japanese school girl’s legs/thighs/body on my dashboard
like the ones of them just on trains or walking or in a store where either you cant see their face or its cropped out
those are taken by perverts/pedophiles and are a huge problem in japan
the girls in the photos are generally underage (and anyway school uniforms are ALWAYS used as age markers so….) and DONT know the photo is being taken
this kind of thing (as well as upskirts, etc.) are SO common in japan that its actually illegal to produce/sell phones or cameras that allow you to silence the shutter sound so that you cannot take a secret photo of someone
and every time i see the photos on my dash i get chills because its not a cute “kawaii” photo for your pale blog its disgusting  

People really need to get this!!!!!! I have unfollowed so many blogs because they post these kinds of pictures. Please please please think before you reblog these photos!  

Remember, these are unconsensual, sexual pictures of minors.
