    A quick retail rant because I’m not feeling very creative today… One: if you misread a sign and I’m trying to explain to you what it’s supposed to be, don’t cuss me out and storm off. Sign reads “Buy 2 get 1 free, tanks, shorts and sandals.” You buy two pairs of PANTS and a…

  • Retail Rant

    It’s been awhile since I ranted about my day job, so I thought I’d give you a catch up entry on how much I still wish I didn’t work in retail. Just in case you started to think that it was all fun for me now. The general public hasn’t learned to behave any better.…

  • Retail Life Episode 30

    Hey, we survived Christmas mayhem and now we’re back to business as usual. Which, of course, doesn’t mean people are any more pleasant, but at least they aren’t hurrying around to buy last-minute gifts anymore. But one side effect of the post-Christmas atmosphere is that people are broke. And what do broke people tend to…

  • Nice try, but No

    Something about this is all wrong. Like maybe reduced stickers should be on the front of the product. And not ripped in the middle. But people do interesting things when they’re feeling brave. Come back Thursday to hear more about how this went down.
