Ah yes, the convenience of not needing to carry much cash is certainly a convenience that would be useful in the land of dumbfucks, Philippines. But the fact that Philippines is populated with dipshit imbeciles who are uniformed, untrained, and just plain fucking stupid, you need to carry much cash.
It’s most likely most of you have a Visa or Mastercard debit card that acts like a credit card. You know how it works, I know how it works, but try to use it at most POS terminals, and the Pinoy idiot will see “Debit Card” on your card and tell you, “Sorry Sir, our machine won’t work with debit card. Credit card only.”
Well that’s when I tell them to look at the Mastercard logo. That means this debit card works exactly like a credit card, so swipe the fucking thing so I can get out of here. “No sir, it won’t work.”
Well isn’t that just like a dumb fuckin’ Filipino, to be uninformed, untrained, and unwilling to serve the customer. Maybe it’s because of the fact that way back 20-something years ago when debit cards first came out, they were not associated with major credit cards like Visa and Mastercard, and you couldn’t use them like credit cards. And as fucking lazy in every way that Filipinos are, they just didn’t bother over the past 20+ years to tell their employees who process customer transactions that debit cards displaying the Visa or Mastercard logo can work just like credit cards. Either way, they’re fucking morons for not yet understanding this. Anyway, I tell them, “If it won’t work, what harm can it do to swipe it and try it? Worst that could happen is the transaction will be denied. SO FUCKING SWIPE IT!!”
SWIPE……………………………………………SUCCESS!…..ANOTHER DEBIT CARD DUMB FUCK.
“HEY DUMBFUCK, don’t you fucking know that any debit card displaying the Visa or Mastercard logo is the exact same thing as a credit card? Only difference is that the money comes out of my account.” Why doesn’t anyone in this land of complete idiots know this??? I ask for the manager, and if by chance there is actually a manager on duty (you’ll often find when a customer asks to speak with a manager, they’re often “in Manila” or “on vacation” or some other idiotic reason for not being there. But no matter, “So then who’s in charge here???” Momentary blank stare….”nobody sir.” Yes, and most businesses operate so poorly and stupidly and incompetently BECAUSE OF THIS. Quite frankly, managers are just as dumb-fucked as those below them. They are just a decoration. They are just idiots with a manager title. They have very little to no real decision making power anyway. They can’t think, they can’t keep proper stock, they are no less an idiot that those they hire. Decision-making power is always hoarded by the head idiot in Manila. So any decisions, even simple ones must wait days, even weeks, before the head dumb-fuck in Manila can get to it.
I swear to gawd, this happens EVERY SINGLE TIME I try to use my Mastercard Debit Card. When will someone train their employees in this utterly stupid country of ignorance? Even BDO employees don’t know this!!
Fucking imbeciles.Published in
