So much for their "Eat Clean" slogan.

Thank you all for all the hard work you put into this site. Words can't express how much I needed this place during my Gamestop days just to vent to a sympathetic audience. I've been trying to keep up the past year - teenagers keep a mom busy! Good luck with life/family/work and whatever you plan to do moving forward! Much love!!

Did they mean "Clothed"? "Closet"?

1) Hope your friend is ok. 2) That cop was an idiot. 3) Those drunken college kids are also idiots. 4) I hope your back gets better. 5) What server do you play on? :p

My kids can kill some cereal but 5 boxes seems excessive.

And it's a popular shoe store? I think even cheap-o Payless has one or two of those foot measuring devices about, in both adult and kid sizes. Seems rather essential to the whole shoe buying experience.

LOL kind of reminds me of a woman that worked at my Gamestop. She'd request off or want something and the boss would say no. She'd disappear in the back for like 5 minutes, he'd get a text and suddenly she would get what she wanted. I didn't want to know what the hell was sent.

Ha so funny I found this! My wedding ring of 15 years recently broke :( My husband had a jeweler friend custom make it. While I adored the ring it was all diamonds and yellow gold. Well after it broke he said he was going to get me something updated and "modern." I confessed I didn't exactly love diamonds, and while his first ring was meaningful and unique I couldn't stare at a diamond for another 15, so my new ring which comes in next week is tanzanite! I'm so stoked. It's funny though - I showed my sister-in-law a picture of my new ring and she goes "Well, it's pretty but it doesn't exactly scream "wedding ring". LOL I love her but seriously F off.

I hope those cops hauled those parents away in cuffs for child endagerment, abondonment and neglect! That's just terrible on a level my brain can't even fathom.

It's always refreshing to hear that there are managers out there that care about their employees and their customers. Too many stories of them not caring about either or both.

Ever watch the show Parking Wars? So reminds me of that. lol Busted red handed and still trying to convince everyone that they were innocently in there shopping.

I so feel for you my friend but sadly most people's brains are not wired that way. People will always be more reactionary than precautionary. Take Christmas Eve shopping - besides Black Friday it was always the worst. Take the rush of BF and compound it by the fact that almost everything is sold out, and customers will inevitably be pissed off that you don't have X product in stock despite it being the most popular item that season and has been sold out for weeks/sells out the second you get it in.

My parents had a landline that had a radio. You could use the radio as an alarm clock too so you wouldn't have to wake up to an annoying buzzer. The radio would cut out if the phone rang and would pop right back on as soon as you hung up. So yes - they were a thing, but god that was um... 20 some odd years ago? I'm so old. :(

Without a doubt that dad is a total tool. Thank goodness it sounds like the sons don't take after him but still since they are so young they are forced to go along with him. He is also likely the kind of person who upon after giving you said gift is like "Do you know how much that cost me??"

Due to the nature of this complaint we will never know for sure if the man's clock was early or if the employees closed early. There have been several times when I have locked up my store 5 minutes early just to be done with my shift, but that was 99% of the time I hadn't seen a customer in the past hour and the parking lot was stone dead. That 1% was I had a shitty day I'm sick of people you can suck it up and come back tomorrow.

I bought my husband those meat shredding claws to go with the smoker I bought him. Forks are great but when you have a massive hunk of beef or pork you need to demolish sometimes you need to look like Wolverine.

Anyone else watch these videos and think "There are just WAY too many people crowding this planet. Too many entitled people and people who show their ass at any given moment because they didn't get their way. We really need to stop breeding for a while to thin the herd." Please tell me it isn't just me. Or maybe I've been watching too much The Handmaiden's Tale.

This breaks my heart. You just witnessed a future serial killer right there. :(
