People will say the most astonishing things sometimes. I don't know if I look like I welcome complaints from these horrible people or what, but they're lucky that I can't strike them dead with a thought. Some of them certainly deserve it. Still, save them all and let Buddha sort them out.
This woman wanted to send money last Saturday. Whenever people ask "Where are the MoneyGram forms?" you know you're dealing with a novice, so you have to ask questions to help them through the process. I've got it down to a science.
Her: "Where are the MoneyGram form?"
Me: "Are you sending money to a person or paying a bill?"
Her: "Sending money to a person."
Me: "Are you sending money out of the country? If you are, there's a special form if you're sending to Mexico."
Her: "No, I'm sending to Arizona."
Me: "OK. You need the regular red SEND form right here. Fill this out and then wait in line. If you have any questions, just ask anybody up, you don't have to come back to me."
Her: "OK, thank you."
She fills it out and waits in line. As it happens, she gets me and wants to send $5o. I always wonder why people want to send such low amounts, because it costs a lot of money to send via MoneyGram, but I never question the customer. Anyway. I tell her the fee is $11.46 and she goes "I know. It's probably cheaper if I were sending out of the country. THAT'S WHY PEOPLE HATE THE MEXICANS."
OH. MY. GOD.
I just sort of look at her. I don't know if she expected me to answer or what. I did the MoneyGram and was like "Here's your reference number."
She thanked me, wished me a Merry Christmas and left. Lady, you're so clueless, Sherlock Holmes couldn't find you.
