Once again dealing with Walmart

Tonight standing in line at the local Wal-Mart was a nightmare. They only had three check stands open and there were long lines. They were doing really well for that past month, but it is now back to spending 45 minutes in line waiting to get checked out. It is getting ridiculous and I know it makes it yard on the elderly as some of them have a hard time standing that long.

There is also a person that works in the pharmacy department. The person is so slow and takes ten minutes to get your order. Just found out they are sending this person to the pharmacy technician program. You've got to be kidding me, this person just doesn't have the skills, personality or I'm sorry to say the brains to do the program. I'm all for education, but seriously this is one profession they shouldn't be going into. I know that a lot of people have complained to the pharmacists about this person and she screws up all of the time. I overheard someone today complaining to the pharmacist, and said they would sue Wal-Mart if this person filled their prescriptions.

Depends on who you Know

I heard through the grapevine that one of the instructional assistants at the local just got a job as a kindergarten teacher. Now we should all say congrats, right? Wrong, this assistant wears extremely tight clothes, which makes them look like they should belong on the fifth of main. They are not good with the students, and are always busy walking up and down the halls strutting their stuff. Also it took them five or six times to pass the praxis test, and this person was bragging when they finally passed it. I know I wouldn't be doing that, I would be too embarrassed. I feel bad for those poor kindergartners as I'm sure they will be yelled at a lot next year by this person.

One of the first grade teachers cannot pass the praxis test, and was told that this would be their last year. Well the word is that they were able to get an extension from the school district. So they now have another year to pass this test. Come on if you can't pass this test, you shouldn't be teaching.

Just shows that it depends on who you know and who you blow in order to get special favors. I know a few assistants that would make better teachers than these too, but they don't have the right last name.
