For those of you who don’t know what Google Wallet is, it’s basically Venmo for people who don’t know what Venmo is. What’s Venmo, you ask? It’s Google Wallet for people who don’t know what Venmo is, duh!
But really, it’s an online service that lets you electronically send money to other people, along with a little description. For example, you could send your friend Jerry $10 for “Cupcakes,” or you could be like 99% of the population and send him $10 for something inanely stupid and inappropriate:
I don’t think anyone over the age of 25 actually labels their Venmo transfers accurately, and since Venmo knows that the majority of their userbase are immature shitbags such as myself, they don’t really care what you include as your description.
Google Wallet on the other hand…they’re not quite hip to our jokes (read: stupidity). Reddit user kagO decided to label one of his purchases as “Drugs, Crack,” and Google wasn’t havin’ it. Not one bit.
So sometimes when I show friends or people how you can request money over Google Wallet, I’ll send a request for a few thousand bucks to close friends with a note saying something like “for my ransom” or “need crack”. They know whats up, they read it, chuckle and reject the request, it’s all good.
And here’s the message that Google sent him after trying to send “crack”:
Nah. We learned that Google are a bunch of stick in the muds. Venmo fo lyfe.
