  •  the whole concept of gift cards (7+ / 0-)

    especially for adults, has got to be one of the stupidest inventions in the history of man.  What exactly is the use case?  For giving to someone when you don't want to handle cash and they don't have a bank account to easily handle a check?  Presumably since this was your employer, they had some other established mechanism for transferring money to you on a regular basis that wasn't a gift card.  So you'd spend it instead of saving it?  As if you didn't have $75 of normal living expenses such as food and gas that you could run it down on.

    I mean I don't like store-specific gift cards either, but at least there you are encouraging someone to shop at a presumably frivolous store that they might not otherwise want to waste money at.
