This week's episode of The Retail Rant is brought to you by yet another "interesting" week in the retail life of TRB. Warmer weather means that the idiots are starting to come out of their winter cocoons. From the "well, it's under warranty" people to bosses that turn emails into a half marathon, it's all on this episode.

How many times have you wished you had a superpower while at work? Admit it, we all have. Whether it was invisibility or mind reading, we have all thought about it. In that spirit, TRB welcomes HAB (@Couch_Party) and Rnady aka "King Dork" (@MRetailSlave) to the show this week to discuss which comic book ability we would want if we were stuck in retail hell forever. It's some good old fashioned fun as we goof off and just have fun discussing retail past and present. Also, an exclusive announcement from Randy regarding the future of The Miserable Retail Slave podcast!
And seriously, if you enjoy the show, leave TRB a 5-star review on iTunes! I've been stuck at 7 reviews for the last 6 months, so show some love for your retail hating friend.
Most importantly, be sure you're wearing someone else's nametag!
We've all seen it lately, the people that voice their opinion about "customer service" on a receipt. Well these crafty little wordsmiths have found their way on to TRB's radar this week. These Shakespeare wannabes that leave their little nuggets of "advice" on the tab have to be stopped! And TRB will tell you how! It's been too long since the restaurant "customer service" industry was a topic here on the Rant, so this episode is for every server, waiter/waitress, and bartender that has had to count how many letters their tips had instead of dollars.
Also, be sure to catch TRB's big announcement that will change the face of retail! So plug in your headphones, crack a beer or 12, and get ready for this week's Retail Rant!

What's the single worst day in retail? You guessed it, inventory day! Join TRB this week as he talks about how much he hates inventory, both the day of, and the mad scramble leading to it. This episode previously "aired" in 2015, but with so many new listeners, how could I deny you? Laugh because it's funny, cringe because it's true. And as always, enjoy, leave a review, and destroy if necessary!
