I can't turn down trying a Shadow Step Mutilate rogue for free. I never got my email though and I'm not paying 15.00.

I turned down a case of those mini Crunch's once. Some dude that worked at a movie theater in the same complex wanted to trade it for cd's (when I worked at Tower Records). I would have done it for a case of sour patch kids though.

Before that I worked at a Barnes and Noble in the music section but quit cause it wasn't my crowd, for some reason most of the people there had a stick up their as* (and you actually had to work.) Oh yeah when you play a personal CD you have to display it on stand on the counter by the register, I put in Sarah Mchlachlan and the b^tch manager came in and inspected the CD case for about a minute like there was gonna be swearing in it or lyrics from White Zombie.

I remember some douche bag came in asking for some obcure sh^t, I asked him to spell the name of the artist and the dude stood there for about 30 seconds staring at me like he wanted to smack me as I tried to guess the spelling of the name of the stupid artist, his face was literally turning red, the dude was probably 40 too. I'm not a big guy or a tough guy and have been in 2 fights I can recall in my entire life but of course I would have destroyed him if he attempted to jump over the counter to assault me.

I got instant hired at Tower Records that was literally across the street by a dude with long hair, a pot belly in a Pantera shirt. Porn magazines are sealed but for some reason at the end of the night some of them aren't sealed anymore and that dude would borrow the magazines right as we're closing and had zero shame doing so in front of 15-20 employees. Everyone walks in a group checking everything so the last memory you have as you lock the store down and shut the lights is your manager taking all the unsealed porn magazines.

High school I work at a Baskin Robbins, lol. I also got paired with a chic from a rival high school, really good looking, blond, typical. One day she was eating frozen yogurt behind the counter, a large cup full of it not giving a crap cause the place was dead. I was making waffle cones because I was bored as hell. A customer walks in and she tosses the large cup into the sink. No big deal. When the customer leaves she asks me to come over cause she wanted to show me something. She grabs the cup of frozen yogurt, dumps it into her hand and squeezes it making a huge mess, we cracked up uncontrollably for about 5 minutes. It turned out the customer was a secret shopper and she got fired lol. She's on my Facebook, she had a drug problem in college and dropped out but is all good now.


life was so simple back then

You guys never worked retail? Come on now lol. Didn't Weap work at Hot Topic?

All that was from a period of 1996 to 2003.

Here are some places I worked for less than a month (in some cases a day).

OCB ( Old Country Buffet), first job ever at 15. Hired with literally all my friends, not one person turned down. It was us and a bunch of Mexicans.

Target (2 weeks). I remember ringing up target lingerie and being embarrassed.

JC Penny (1 day). They put me in the men's shoe department with zero training.

Babbage's ( Now Gamestop) (summer, manager got fired for stealing so I quit)

Sport's Authority (Month) (douche bags)

GNC (3-4 Months, Manager got fired, she would go shopping during store hours and left me to work, cool laid back chic. She did't just go browse, she would bring back bags of department store clothes 2-3 days a week)

Kinkos (1 Day, good money at the time but everyone was old and angry)

UPS (1 Day, good money but graveyard shift)

Peter Pan Seafood's in King Cove Alaska (one summer, the summer of hell, massive amount of money though).

Bally's Total Fitness, after I quit there I had to work out at Gold's with all the steroid people. First time there I saw a chic repping 225 on the incline press.

I worked at Pottery Barn for a few months. I think I was the only dude on the sales floor, every other dude worked in the loading dock. I think it was cause of my tight pants, and my sad eyes. I remember one time the Martha Stewart like manager chick was absolutely stunned that i went to Hot Topic (bought my punk gf at the time a misfits shirt for her wiener dog). She was all like, "Wow, how can you go in there? It looks scary..." lol
