  • Pushing carts for a living
    #1
    I'm 16, and I got a job pushing carts at a walmart in Wisconsin 3 months ago. I have a love-hate relationship with this job. It's the third job I've had, easiest mentally, hardest physically. I'd say that management has treated me with respect, and understands the hard ass work us cartpushers put in. The customers are actually, nice, for the most part. I've never actually had a bad run in with a customer. except for the ones who are apparently mute, and just stare at you as you say "may I take your cart? Thank you. Have a good rest of your day." What bothers me is, I feel like a fuckin idiot for having this job. I try not to tell people what I do exactly, just resorting to "I work at walmart", because when tell them I push carts, they laugh. I laugh too, but inside I feel like I should be doing better. I'm a relatively smart person, and it really does hurt me to see people my age in school doing other jobs and getting 13 bucks an hour, and i'm stuck on minimum wage. I'm the best cart pusher at my store, but that doesn't help me much, because I feel like it's a job for mentally challenged adults (I work with one challenged adult, and 2 kids my age). And I get so angry doing this job. I'm strangling people in my head and freaking out because i'm the only one there on a busy Saturday, with the electric cart machine broke, working as fast as I possibly can and still falling behind. I know it's not my fault but it stresses me out so much. Normal walmarts have 2-3 people cart pushing at any given time, but ours just lost 3 people, so we're consistently running just one guy at a time, during the busiest hours for some fuckin reason. Luckily, we got some new hires, or it would just be me and the older guy. The work load can be insane, and you never really have time to catch your breath. Seeing a title wave of shopping cars flood out of the building has me cursing under my breath and seeing red. But under all this chaos, I put out a level headed attitude and do my best to not be seen angry. Doing my best to not sound like a psychopath, just needed to talk because no one else would care to listen.
