A little dis-belief
This is a long rant...I was at the store today, in line behind some hispanics.normal enough for around here. They had a shopping 2 carts full of things, not that normal around here, and then the checker rings up some beer and say ya can't use that card for alcohol. I am thinking what kind of card says ya can't use it for that. Did I miss something??? I don't want one. I asked the clerk what it was called so I won't get one. He said Oregon Trails, OK duly noted to me...during the process the hispanics,can't speak a word of English were trying to communicate to the clerk about some stuff but the clerk couldn't speak Spanish. This was attempted a couple times.now I don't barge into anyone’s business and could care less what flavor they are so I listened and yes I speak Spanish and heard the woman talking to her guy, telling him what an A hole among a few other choice words, really dis-respectful, actually more like contempt about the clerk for NOT being able to speak spanish, the clerk called for one who could and kept checking them out..They finished their checkout, total of bill, $585.74.I was next. I told the clerk what they had said, he groweled,shook his head and said they have been in before but never knew what they are talking about, he said at least THEY should learn SOME english,now I know thanks to you. He ALSO told me that the card they used is a welfare card, apparently they don't use food stamps here in oregon, they issue a credit/debit card with the amount of food stamps on them...I'm getting to the point. I am done at the checkout and I walked out and they were loading up the stuff in a brand new Cadillac escalade EXT?this thing had at least a 4000.00 custom pearl paint job,1500.00-2000.00 at least per wheel, they had gold trimming all over them and at least 800.00 per tire(low profile 20 something inch tires) so I have this imprint in my head,normaly I don't give a rats ass about people but the total lack of respect these people showed the clerk really hit a sour note with me, added to the fact that they were on welfare, which is pretty normal around here.(I recollect seeing people using that card before) AND driving about 80K's worth of NEW vehicle and accessories..Something is wrong with the picture I witnessed today. Why am I working my fingers to the bone and certain people are handed my money??
