Just a quick message to all the fans, supporters, followers, and subscribers. YOU have made 2015 a GREAT year for The Ranty Bastard, and I wish the best for every one of you in 2016. So be safe out there tonight, and enjoy a new episode of The Retail Rant coming soon.
Well, it's not all ranty this week. TRB does trash some customers, but a soft spot was hit this week that waranted discussion. A shorter show than usual, but you should be enjoying your Christmas (aka a day off from retail), and time with family and friends. So don't worry about TRB going soft; the hardcore ranting is back on and in full effect next week!
And be sure to visit our sponsor at accessorygeeks.com to pick up all the things you need to go along with your new, shiny Christmas toys! On top of their year-round FREE shipping, use promo code "party5" at checkout for an additional 13% OFF!!! From high quality, custom iPhone and Galaxy cases, to earbuds and tablet accessories, the geeks at accessorygeeks.com have got you covered!
As the final "flashback" (yeah, I know, all the way back to July) of 2015, join TRB in a thorough thrashing of two groups of people we all hate - early morning and last minute assholes. It's especially ranty, and it's a topic we ALL encounter daily. It's a particularly relevant episode, as we deal with the worst LMAs of the year, the last minute Christmas shopper!
Don't forget to visit our sponsor, accessorygeeks.com, for all of your iPhone and Galaxy needs, as well as anything else you need for your new shiny Christmas gifts. Because let's face it, those factory earbuds just aren't gonna cut it. Maybe you got a new tablet and need a case. Or a stand so you don't drop it on your face in bed. Whatever you need, tyhe geeks at accessorygeeks.com have you covered! They always have FREE shipping, and you can save an additional 13% off when you use promo code "party5" at checkout!
That phrase is annoying any time of year, but people screaming for price checks during the "holiday season" can just be downright infuriating. Join TRB this week and revel in our mutual disdain for price checks and people that want 50 $5 gift cards during a rush. And if you have a terrible manager, have them sit down and take notes for the last part. You'll be glad you did.
And for all you LMAs, visit accessorygeeks.com to finish up all of your Christmas shopping. From custom iPhone and Galaxy cases, earbuds, screen protectors and more, the geeks have your last minute ass covered! Shipping is always FREE, and you will save an additional 13% off your order when you use promo code "party5" at checkout. Don't get trampled by the masses at the mall, when you can shop from home with accessorygeeks.com!
Enjoy, leave a review, destroy if necessary, and don't forget to wear somebody else's nametag!
Not all of you have been with TRB since the beginning, but you shouldn't be left out! This is one of the first episodes of The Retail Rant, and the first to be re-released as part of the best of 2015, Ranty style. Enjoy this one as I discuss customer loyalty and coupons at great length and with distinct disgust. And forgive the audio issues - I was only 4 weeks in to podcasting and still learning a lot to bring you the shows I do today. But enjoy in anyways, because it's retail hatred at it's finest (except for the audio).
Also, no promo spot on the show itself, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't go to accessorygeeks.com to finish off your Christmas list! Get those last minute gifts or stocking stuffers, and use promo code "party5" at checkout to get 13% off of your order. And accessorygeeks.com always has FREE shipping!
An early release for this week's show so that I could get some plugs out.
Be sure to go and support our friend of the show, Tom E Thompson, as he and fellow comics Andy Benigno, Chris Young and Tim Steele bring the comedy to The Riverfront Grille in Chesaning, MI this Saturday. Get to the show, bring a toy for the Toys for Tots drive, and be sure to tell Tommy that TRB sent ya!
Now with that done, check out the rest of the show as TRB addresses customer behavior during the "holidays", as well as my creative insight into the retail hell we are all trapped in.
And be sure to visit our sponsor, accessorygeeks.com. Free shipping, great last minute Christmas gifts from the comfort of your iPad, and 13% off your order with the promo code "party5". Convenient shopping without the crowds or Christmas music!
And as always, enjoy, leave an iTunes review, and destroy if necessary!
*Disclaimer - You should do your best The Rock impression when you read this.
Finally, The Mrs. Ranty Bastard, has AGREED, to do The Retail Rant Podcast.
Join the family this week as we discuss a retail household with kids, and catch up on Mrs. TRB's take on some new days of the week.
As always, enjoy, leave a review, and destroy if necessary!
