"Title? What's that?"

Raise your hand here if you've had a customer call, begin to describe a book, sans title, and then ask for your manager because you're 'too new' since you have no clue as to what book she was looking for other than she saw it on a TV show and thought it looked interesting.


Can't be that interesting if you can't at least remember the title...saying it has a picture of fudge in it and it's by Rachel Ray doesn't do crap other than tell me it's in the cooking section and Miss Ray likes fudge. Upside, my co-worker didn't know the book either. xD

The above statement also goes to the fact if you've ever had a customer come in/call saying "I don't know the title, but I saw it on -insert show here-! Do you have it? It's new/old!".

Uhh....I watch shows that involve mind rotting violence and that ain't happening on Oprah.


Dear Parents,

Kiosk workers are not your complimentary mall babysitters!

We are not going to watch your kids while you duck into a random store. Not even if you ask us.

Coincidentally, if your kid takes our merchandise without paying, then you should chase them down instead of informing us and then continue to read the back of a calendar while we run after the brats.

We will sell your kids for slave labor and/or to a zoo as emergency food substitute.

Teach 'em some respect, you jerks!

It's January and we're fed up. Next time we call security and perhaps child services.


A random employee whom was taught better.


Last Venty Rant thing: I'm all for people using their discounts. Totally for it. Just. Not. All. At. Once... *dead* Are you really so cheap as to use five different things at once?! It costs less than twenty-bucks! I'm the kind of person whom takes the time to make sure everything is entered correctly and some customers take offense to that when I'm trying to arrange everything for the best discount and so I don't have to void things afterwards for not being able to do a double discount. >_>;;

Heh, I guess I shouldn't complain though....work is good, pay is nice. This is actually my second job and I was only supposed to be a kiosk bitch seasonal help. XD;; Imagine my surprise when I get pulled to the side and told I'm staying... *_* Geeks love books, so it goes without saying that this has been a life long dream - doesn't matter that I'm 18, my dream's done. You go be an astronaut! I got quality reading material and an employee discount.
