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.

I don’t think people realize how mathematically-minded a lot of people in poverty are. I mean, advanced mathematics are a difficult subject for a lot of people, but I’ve seen some people working for 7.25 an hour manage to add large sums up in their head and come out correct. A person making minimum wage knows the exact amount of money they are making per shift and can factor in what is being taken out in taxes. In particularly mind-numbing jobs, a lot of them try to calculate just how much they’re making per minute to do a repetitive and boring task. A person making minimum wage thinks: if at the end of my shift my average sum will be $46, then that will pay off the electric bill for the month, and tomorrow’s wages will pay off the water bill, and the next two week’s wages will go to rent.
Minimum wage workers mentally balance their checkbooks because every cent counts. 
So if the purpose of this comic was to make some commentary about how people who are poor deserve to be poor because they are uneducated, then it was poorly executed. If it is, as it says in the corner, based on a true story, then I’m betting that the cashier was unused to giving exact change and was taken by surprise. It may also have been her first day on the register. Or her register could have had an error, because certain registers lock up if something goes wrong.
Basically, this comic is an unreliable account. 

I was never taught how to do this.My parents didn’t want me walking around with cash on me at school, so I had a debit card with a really low limit on it to buy lunch when I needed to in high school. I never learned the “pay extra to get round change” thing until I had worked at a cash. I cannot lie; it never bothered me if the person told me they were doing it and I could enter that into the till and have the register tell me “give this much back”, but when they would tack it on after everything was punched in, it took me a while to be able to do it properly without panicking. Sometimes I had to get someone else to make sure I was giving them the right change (I’m terrible at mental math, and would blame myself to buy some time “Oh, I just don’t want to accidentally miscalculate and short-change you! Just a sec! Silly me!”)
And for those of you watching this scene go down from the outside and judging the cashier; I’m going to assume you’ve never been a cashier, or that you’ve been very lucky as a chaser and were never conned by a short-chang artist.
See, it might just look like the cashier is panicking and calling for the manager because “Hurr-durr what is math?! Do you want fries with that?”… but I promise you that there are some slick mother fuckers out there who do this to cashiers specifically to steal from them, and we know it. So, we call for backup. These short-changers wait until the register has calculated everything and at the last minute say “Oh, here’s $20.60!” and as you work out the difference (because now you’ve got a handful of odd change based on what they’d given you before, and the new “rounded” change isn’t always as obvious as $10, sometimes it is just to cut out three pennies), they’ll start rushing you through calculations. Then they’ll say “never mind, I’ll give you this instead!” and now you’ve got money in your hands, on the counter, in the till, all while they’re telling you new numbers and also asking if you can break their other $20… and it keeps going until they manage to trick you into handing them $10 extra while the people behind them are giving you the stink eye for not knowing how to give change.
In the end, that $10 comes out of your pay in a lot of places (even though large companies are insured for obscene amounts of money going ‘missing’ like that, but whatever). And $10 might not seem like much, but these con-artists don’t just hit up convenience stores and McDonalds. They also go to electronics stores (where people aren’t used to dealing in cash to begin with because everything is $50 minimum), or high end clothing and department stores where they can sneak $60-$150, at least, out of a cashier without anyone knowing until the end of the day.
So if you see something like this, or if it is happening to you, remember that these cashiers are working minimum wage, working 10 or 11 hour shifts with little or no breaks, with customers and corporations breathing down their necks. They might be a bit slow sometimes because they’re new, because they’re tired, or maybe even because they aren’t that intelligent. They might be trying to stop a con artist from stealing from them. They might be trying to make sure they’re not accidentally short-changing you! But who cares; slow your roll.

Oh wow.  Oh wow.  I REALLY want to shoot this cartoonist.
I am a 28 year old with a terminal, graduate degree.  Yes, I have the highest level of education possible in my field.  I also work slightly above minimum wage and have had to move in with my parents because I cannot afford, I repeat, CANNOT AFFORD THE BASIC NECESSITIES ON MY OWN PAYCHECK.  
This particular minimum wage paycheck comes from a retail corporation, where yes, we have cash registers and I am often behind one.  I am very good at mental math and will often ask people if they have X cents to round out the cash they give me so I can give them even dollar amounts back.  But on busy days, especially in the holiday season, where we have all four registers going in our mall store, where I am having to help new employees with their own transactions or having to call my own manager because the POS system has locked me out for some unknown reason (like the internet going down) or a customer has a complicated question (or even worse, a mind numbingly dumb question that they cannot seem to comprehend the answer to and I can’t figure out any simpler way to explain that yes, 64.04 minus your $5 deposit DOES equal 59.04, and yes I am aware it is a 59.99 item, but sales tax in this county is 6.725% and I will show you on a calculator if you want but every time I will be right), then yes, there are some days when simple math suddenly escapes me.  Because I have been working for 6 days without a day off and many of those 10 or 12 hour days with a half hour for lunch.  Oh yes, and then I do my freelance work on top of that (which btw, op, is cartooning, and I’m going to throw some critique your way: blacking out your mediocre drawing abilities is NOT the correct answer here.  Also, he is clearly holding several bills, not just a single bill, which is totally ruining your whole punchline)  Or heaven forbid I hit the wrong button because our machine only works by using the function keys (you knwo those ones at the top of your keyboard you never use?  F1-F12?  That are grouped in fours?  That the numbers are now worn off of and cash is F5 while credit is F9 and if I’m not paying attention I might hit the wrong one and have to return and re-do the entire transaction because I hit the wrong payment method becuase you are in such a rush you were yelling at me even though I might be the only employee working and there were 6 people in line in front of you and you had to go and make things complicated because you had two systems to trade but you didn’t bring all the right cables and can’t I just round that up to $73 and give you that instead?  So yes.  Maybe sometimes my math fails me.  Or the system locks me out.  And I do have to go get a manager for what you think is EASY.  But I would bet you’ve never worked a minimum wage retail job in your cushy life, mr rich white man.  Not if you think we’re asking too much for minimum wage.  Because heaven forbid your tax dollars go to helping out your fellow man (and woman) instead of ridiculous bailouts for corporations who can’t add money and cheat their employees, stock holders, and customers out of billions.  
So fuck you, mr. rob smith jr.  You are the problem.

I literally cannot stress enough how true the last four comments above me are (and nearly every comment of the same kind in this reblog) is. The only way this would be funny or even look remotely true is if you have never worked in customer service or behind a cash register.
The main points? 99.99% of the time we call a manager over it’s because we think we might be getting scammed/short changed. Also, depending on how lax the company you work for is, not only does the shorted amount of money come out of your paycheck, but you can also be fired for it. At my old place of work it was three strikes and you’re out for "negligence" and "inability to handle money". One of my best friends worked at a movie theater that almost fired her for the first offense (that was actually made by someone else on her til).
And as stated above… most people are constantly trying to calculate exactly how long they need to work, if this shift is worth it in the long run and will I be able to pay the bills this month? Half of them have second jobs that pay more or less than the one you’re screaming at them at. They’re in their heads calculating if they can get more hours at the better paying one, if so, can they afford to take out a sick day at this one to get more pay at that one or actually have a day off for the first time in months or take care of their kid or any other numerous things that they should be able to do but can’t. Most of us are good at math, if not, we’re learning the ropes. How would you feel getting yelled at for not being able to do something you’ve never had to do before during your first week of trying to do it? Yeah. (I was never taught before my first job how to handle money, much less how to round up. These things happen and it’s not a case of someone being stupid, it’s a case of someone never having to have had to learn that skill before. Usually it’s also some shy, kind person who really doesn’t want to short change you and so she’s trying to double check her work instead of just short changing you on accident).Main point of all this? Don’t be a jerk. Everyone starts somewhere. Also, to the original poster, Have you actually ever been in a store with a cash register? Because I’d love to know where you’ve ever been that people have been baffled by giving change for bills larger than a $5.

Please read.. and reblog. For all the children who are/feel excluded. For all the children who have no friend. Because it is important. Because we ALL are important !

This is exactly why Kyle and I are having a Beauty and the Beast wedding. Because we have both felt rejected by society, and we have found solace in each other. 
It is through each other that we found and learned to love ourselves. 

If you ever wonder why I like the gaston character as my favorite villain this is why. He portrays something that I have pretty much noticed all my life. I was bullied quite a bit when I was growing up, especially in my awkward middle School years. Society found nothing wrong with it , even going as far as to say it was normal for a child to go through what I was going through. It’s sad but I made it through that.When I look at gaston I see something I overcame as a child and it gives me a lot of strength now to know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that it’s the personality that truly makes someone beautiful. That’s why I never judge anyone by their appearances but I actually get to know them.

This is why I love Beauty and the Beast so much. Its got a HELL of a lot of depth to it. For me it goes WAY beyond most other princess movies. And what it has to say is amazing. Theres also this sort of parallel between Gaston and Beast where, in the beginning, beast wanted to own belle, just as gaston did. Belle only started to fall for the beast after he let her go. He let her go twice during the movie, the second time is when she finally returns to him and tells him that she loves him. She loves him because he does not seek to own her, and because he puts her feelings and emotions before his. I just really love their relationship and I love this movie. More like Beauty and the Beast please.

Please read.. and reblog. For all the children who are/feel excluded. For all the children who have no friend. Because it is important. Because we ALL are important !

This is exactly why Kyle and I are having a Beauty and the Beast wedding. Because we have both felt rejected by society, and we have found solace in each other. 
It is through each other that we found and learned to love ourselves. 

If you ever wonder why I like the gaston character as my favorite villain this is why. He portrays something that I have pretty much noticed all my life. I was bullied quite a bit when I was growing up, especially in my awkward middle School years. Society found nothing wrong with it , even going as far as to say it was normal for a child to go through what I was going through. It’s sad but I made it through that.When I look at gaston I see something I overcame as a child and it gives me a lot of strength now to know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that it’s the personality that truly makes someone beautiful. That’s why I never judge anyone by their appearances but I actually get to know them.

Independent packaging project for perishable goods:
Is it reasonable that it takes several years for a milk carton to decompose naturally, when the milk goes sour after a week? This Too Shall Pass is a series of food packaging were the packaging has the same short life-span as the foods they contain. The package and its content is working in symbiosis.
Smoothie packageGel of the agar agar seaweed and water are the only components used to make this package. To open it you pick the top. The package will wither at the same speed as its content. It is made for drinks that have a short life span and needs to be refrigerated, fresh juice, smoothies and cream for example.Rice PackagePackage made of biodegradable beeswax. To open it you peel it like a fruit. The package is designed to contain dry goods, for example grains and rice.Oil packageA package made of caramelized sugar, coated with wax. To open it you crack it like an egg. When the material is cracked the wax do no longer protect the sugar and the package melts when it comes in contact with water. This package is made for oil-based food.

Bully messes with karate champ. [video]

The source video is very, very worth watching. A few things to point out:

The young woman in the dark coat is continually trying to escape from the man. She has spoken to him, she’s pulled away, she’s even tried to walk away before he dragged her back. She hit him as a last resort but it didn’t do anything, he just got more aggressive.

The girl in the white jacket was walking by, recognized that a bad situation was happening, stopped, and intervened. At 0:28 she calls the man out, and continues to call him out until he breaks off attacking the young woman in the dark coat and turns his aggression on her. At which point she defends herself—and then she escorts the young woman in the dark coat safely away.

This is a hero.

Bringing this back.

GIRL POWER

The woman in the white jacket is Olga Ivanova, taekwondo world champion. That kick must have hurt like hell.

Tae Kwon Do Champion. You fucked up, bro.

She kicked with SURGICAL precision, check that out.

My mother says that fanfiction doesn’t count as reading because “it isn’t nearly as good as the stuff that’s published. You’re not going to find something online that will win a Booker Prize.”
Please reblog if you count fan fiction as reading, or if the fanfiction you’ve read is equally as good as published novels. I want to see the figures.

*crushes mouse while hitting reblog button*

Uh. Let me stop her right there because some of the fanfictions I’ve read have been vastly better than a lot of the books I’ve had to read (school required reading and not). Additionally, about 1/5 of the fanfictions I’ve read have been written by people with books out or in the process of trying to get their books published.
