There's a storm in my teacup!

Well, in my dollar store mug.

Oh, and it's bloody December.
Now, this will frighten me given I remember Trudi worked at retail over Yuletide, and I saw her smile fade over this time. I sense a lot of panicked customers and a lot of stupidity, and with the shop in a bad state, I fear the worst. Also, just to clarify that some of our customers are idiots - here is a tag.

Do you want to guess what this means, when a film or a game has this tag on it? Because I can wager 1 in 10 people who rent from us really don't understand this confusing system at all. It's even worse when you point it out to people, then they bring up another item with an "On Loan" tag on it. You just feel like politely cuffing them with the box. It's the humane thing to do.

Does it mean you're borrowing it from another store so that you can rent it out to customers?



Oh don't. I'm quite worried over how stupid some of the people that walk into the shop are! On loan....hmm, wonder what *that* could mean....;)

"Oh! It isn't in! Haha! I wondered what that meant."

Good grief, eh?

It appears the fine print says "Topless Tag" on that thing.

I'm going to assume that's not a description of the object itself but rather the title of the movie that's out of stock. Because I can!

Duuuh does it mean I get free popcorn?

XD My local video and Movie store has the same tags! How can youi not get it?! XD!!

That's NOTHING. Let me regale you with two tales of my cinema-usher days...

1.) Chap walks in. Points to some stairs clearly going up, and asks 'Excuse me, do these stairs go up?'. I rest my case.

2.) Chap walks in, up to the concessions stand, looks at the bar of Cadbury's Whole Nut (presumably they don't sell these in America - as American he was, so quick note to the un-initiated - it's a large, flat, rectangular choc bar with whole nuts in it), and asks 'Excuse me, is that Whole Nut just, like, A BIG NUT?'

How I stopped from creasing up with laughter, I have no idea.

At least, with part 1 you can just say: "No! The stairs go to Hell! HELL!" and then run off screaming. Nothing makes people stop and think like someone running away screaming near them.

Incidentally I've added you to my friends list because you keep popping up and I like your icons.

I'm so shallow.

Oh my! Apparently you're not the only one.

I just checked and three people have added me in the last 24 hours. Three people! That's quite scary.

That IS scary. I, on the other hand, have added three people today.

a.) I'm in a good mood.

b.) I have too much time on my hands.

Ah! Well, that's never a bad thing as far as I can tell.
