    I prefer dealing with machines to people

    So I go to the post office to ship some shirts and see a machine that says self-serve shipping. This... was awesome. You simply swipe your card, put the package on to weigh, and it prints out a stamp that exactly matches the amount. Shipped a dozen or so packages and it took me maybe 5 minutes.

    When I first went to the post office a couple weeks back to ship when I brought in my packages the lady just looked like at me like, "Oh great, I have to do all this work." She made a huge fuss about weighing the packages and then I had to watch as she could barely add stamp values I would need. I mean seriously, she struggled with basic arithmetic and spent about 5 minutes $#@!ing about how weighing everything would hold up the line. It's your job $#@!, $#@!ing do it.

    At no point did the thought cross her mind that the self-service station may be faster and to recommend it instead she complained and complained sighing after weighing each package and then figuring out the postage necessary.

    I mean, are people like that even necessary at the post office? Really? How many years of grad school does it take exactly to get a job where even an elementary school kid can figure out how to use the same computer she has sitting right in front of her?

    In almost any situation now if there is a machine alternative I take it. Self-checkout, brilliant. Even in Vegas I prefer using machines to sitting at the table as you'll have some drunk holding up the action or trying to figure out how to count. Plus no human error or pressure to tip the dealer as if you owe them for giving the casino money.

    Anyway, that's my rant for the day. I have no problem with menial jobs going to machines especially when the machine is more efficient.

    I have to agree with you. The older I get, the less I want to deal with people. Especially stupid people I am forced to deal with.

    The worse is when you work with them. I used to work at a grocery store full of haitians that literally didnt give a $#@! about anything and barely spoke english. Little white kid had to do all the work.... I hope they are all homeless

    $#@!ers should be grateful that they are in the US, yet they are here to ride on the free welfare and unemployment amd healthcare.
