Five minutes later, crustys came through and ruined it.

A Godzilla attack. Or as they call it in Japan, Tuesday.

This is not the cake you are looking for.

It actually comes off a joke The Rock made (during his brief time going back to WWE) where he criticized Cena for wearing a different colored shirt (orange, blue, green, red, etc) every time he came out for a match and said he was like a bowl of Fruity Pebbles.

We need these for every little league sport.

The only problem is as more and more stories like this get proven to be hoaxes, people will stop believing and caring and saying "It's probably another hoax like that lesbian waitress or the little girl at KFC." So many people are crying wolf it's getting harder and harder to tell what's true anymore.

Because calling her before ordering would have made sense.

When are people going to learn that in this day and age of smartphones and social media, that if you do stupid shit like this, you're going to get caught? Not to mention that if you're the offending employee, you're probably going to get fired just so the company can save face? I have a hard time feeling sorry for people who do this and then start crying when they get fired.

Whoever wrote this should be forced to work by themselves, on Black Friday, with no break. Now let's play my favorite game: What You Wish You Could Say. Can you give me a better price? It's already on sale, unless you have one of our coupons, then no, I cannot give you a better price. If I buy two, what can you do for me? Charge you for both of them, unless they're part of a BOGO deal. I do like it, but it's more than my budget. Then I suggest you buy something you can afford. If it was only $20 (I know it's pounds in the article, but I don't have a key for that) cheaper, I'd buy it. Well then, you can either come back when it goes on clearance or cough up the extra $20. My partner/boss says it's too expensive. They'd kill me if I spent so much. Can you move at all on the price? First off, I don't care. Secondly, that sounds like a personal problem. Finally, no, I cannot move on the price. I don't set the prices, and I'm not risking my job just so you can save money. Now fuck off.

Considering that most people don't have a filter or volume control when they talk on their cell phones, talking about everything from their seuxal exploits to disgusting medical conditions, I approve of these. I don't want to hear about... well anything you have to talk about with whoever you're talking to, especially since you're practically yelling into your damn phone. Of course the only bad thing is, most people are on their cell phones for so damn long, no one else will be able to use the booths.

By the hair on Thrognar's balls people! Learn how to fuckin' read! So we have a Father's Day special going on. If you buy men's clothing, accessories or luggage totaling $30 or more you get $10 off THOSE ITEMS ONLY! Keep that in mind. So this Indian man (why is it always the Indians who seem to be the ones who try to get discounts that they don't deserve?) comes through my line last night. He uses his Soul's Cash and his 15% off coupon and then pulls up the Father's day ad on his phone, saying he should get the $10 off because he's a father (so fucking what?), and the ad says shop now, under a promo code. Promo codes are only good for ONLINE ORDERS ONLY. We cannot, under any circumstances use the promo code in-store. Our registers will not accept it so there's no point in even trying to put them in. Now if numbnuts had actually clicked on the "get your pass" link under the promo code, a different screen with a bar code (which I could scan) would have popped up. I gave up trying to explain to this asshole that I need a... Continue reading

I also know who you're talking about. That manager sounds like she needs some sensitivity training. And maybe a beating with my trusty clue by four.

I'm pretty sure if I were in your shoes, I would have either quit and then punched someone in the face, or punched someone in the face and gotten fired. Either way, someone needs to get punched.

You know if the car had been stolen, it would still have been your fault for not watching for her. This is why so many people are hesitant to do the right thing. Do the right thing, have people get mad at you for touching/doing imaginary damage to their property. Do nothing, have people get mad at you for not watching their personal property (you know, the stuff they're supposed to be responsible for). As a former manager once told me "As a general rule, customers suck!"

I agree, you should have puked on her.

If the book had been sold, I would have called the customer back and laid the blame squarely on the manager.

At least they actually LEFT a tip, instead of the many assholes who find creative ways NOT to leave a tip.

Well, this site has proven over the years that most customers are just stupid. I've said over and over again, that you could have a sign in ten foot high letters in bright neon colors, a live band, a laser light show, fireworks, dancing girls, acrobats, trained animals and people will still miss it (or only see the parts of it that they want to see).

If any of those dogs had been mine, they'd be arresting me for attempted murder, because I would have gone for this guys throat.

I was seven when it came out. I begged my dad to take me to see it. I loved it. My friends and I had most of the toys and we'd recreate scenes from the movie over and over and over. Then "Empire" came out and we lost our minds. More story, more toys, more scenes to recreate. Sadly the toys have been lost over time, I bet they'd be worth a shitload of money if I still had them.

From the Huffington Post: One woman who frequently flew on Southwest was constantly disappointed with every aspect of the company's operation. In fact, she became known as the "Pen Pal" because after every flight she wrote in with a complaint. She didn't like the fact that the company didn't assign seats; she didn't like the absence of a first-class section; she didn't like not having a meal in flight; she didn't like Southwest's boarding procedure; she didn't like the flight attendants' sporty uniforms and the casual atmosphere. Her last letter, reciting a litany of complaints, momentarily stumped Southwest's customer relations people. They bumped it up to Herb's [Kelleher, CEO of Southwest at the time] desk, with a note: 'This one's yours.' In sixty seconds Kelleher wrote back and said, 'Dear Mrs. Crabapple, We will miss you. Love, Herb.'" The phrase "The customer is always right" was originally coined in 1909 by Harry Gordon Selfridge, the founder of Selfridge's department store in London, and is typically used by businesses to convince customers that they will get good service at this company and convince employees to give customers good service. However, I think businesses should abandon this phrase once and for all... Continue reading
