Me: "Do you have any GI Joe 5 packs in stock?"
Annoying TRU Lady I Keep Getting On The Phone Every Time I Call: "Well, no, we don't have any. But we do have the GI Joe Senior Banking Officers in stock."
Me: "I see..."
That's right kids! Go now and get your own financial security with the GI Joe Senior Banking Officers! They can deposit and lend for the security of our nation!
... I call the TRU nearest me about once a week to see if they have the new CG and Greenshirts in stock and I keep getting this woman, who doesn't know her butt from power rangers. She keeps insisting that they dont have any GI Joe 5 pks. They have a case of NightWatch sitting there. The 12" figures are 10" according to her. I'm really getting tired of her. Every action figure is "GI Joe" despite my explaining that the name GI Joe is a brand, and that other toys without that written on it are for some funny reason, not actually GI Joe toys, they are in fact OTHER PRODUCTS!! Sigh. I've been very nice and polite because yelling or being snippy does nothing and generally increases the stress level. But today's "Senior Banking Officers".. she said that, honestly, really, she said it, and I let it go... it's too much, I had to share and rant. Thanks for listening.

If those Banking Officers can get me a higher rate on my CD, then I may have to enlist them.

umm how about getting off your ass and going and looking at the store instead of wasting peoples time?
Since when are they your personal look out assistants?
I am sure if you can recoginie her voice... she knows its you calling (again) for the Umpteenth time... So therefore she probably plays dumb and told you senior banking officers to mess with you I know i would have lol.

How sad. You would hope a person working at a toy store would be able to tell the difference between certain toys. Maybe tru and target swaps employees once in a while to keep things interesting.

Guys you gotta support G.I. Joe or else we won't have G.I. Joe on the shelves and they haven't released Spaceshot. We can't have an anniversary line without Spaceshot!

Makes sense. I blame Cobra for today's mortgage crisis.
Customer: "We want to buy a $450k home, but we only make around $60k/yr together."
Cobra Commander: "Sssssold!"

Nah, you can't blame them, it was the lenders who are to blame, Cobra Commander sold used cars, he wasn't big time enough to screw people over on properties.

Yeah I agree. People shouldnt take their jobs seriously. They shouldnt help customers out. And when they go home to their apartment and wonder why they cant get a head in life or get a better job maybe they should think about how they suck at retail so what makes them think someone would put them in charge of something more important. Why are there so many people who defend lousy employees. Who cares if you hate your job. Suck it up or find another job.
