My husband and I were having a conversation about how ungrateful some people can be and I told him about a conversation that I overheard between a couple of employees at my job. Everyone was given a $50 gift card to Publix with their paychecks yesterday , but I guess that wasn't enough for some people. Here's a sketch of a conversation I overheard:
Employee 1: "Oh, another Publix gift card. Couldn't they have given us something different this year, like a bonus on our check"?
Employee 2: "Yeah right. Do you really think they're going to give us a bonus? What am I going to do with a $50 gift card to Publix?[what can't you do with a $50 gift card to Publix?- Cheap Chica] I don't even shop at Publix."[give it to me, asshole, i'll take it.- Cheap Chica]
Employee 1: Cheap muthaf**kas.
Really? You gotta be fucking kidding me. Since I've been working at my current place of employment, we've always received a gift card from Publix every year for Christmas, and every year, someone has something negative to say about it. You're upset because your place of employment thought enough about your punk ass to get you something for Christmas? They didn't have to give you anything. The way this economy is going, be thankful that you have a job for crying out loud. Some people don't have a job right about now. They would love to be in your shoes right now. Hell, they would love to have that $50 gift card that you're complaining about just to put food in their house. That's money for grocery that you don't have to come out of pocket for and you're complaining? What is the world coming to? Geeeeezzzzzz.
