Well, it's officially been one year of The Retail Rant podcast, and what better way to celebrate than by revisiting the episode that started it all. From bad audio and no format at all, to lighting a cigarette on air every 2 minutes, this pile of shit turned in to the premier podcast for anyone who has ever experienced retail hell. So strap on your headphones and take a trip down memory lane with TRB, but don't leave an iTunes review on this one!
And a big thanks to everyone who has interacted with the show over the past year, my fantastic guests, the Couch Party Crew (who for some reason added me to their app despite this episode), and every follower who likes and RTs my daily retail bullshit. Year number 2 is going to be great, and I look forward to continuing to bring you all a profanely entertaining look into retail hell.
This week's episode takes a look at the new overtime laws that go into effect later this year. TRB discusses how it could (and probably will) suck for a lot of managers, and how it will likely impact everyone in the retail world. But don't despair, even though it's a serious topic, it will be delivered in true Ranty Bastard fashion - lots of profanity and with a distinct hatred for HR! So kick back, leave a 5-star iTunes review, and most importantly, be sure to wear someone else's nametag!

The Retail Rant turns 50 this week! (Well, fifty weeks that is.) In usual ranty fashion, TRB serves up his take on the world known as retail hell. On this week's episode, the guys out there will learn what happens when you slip an underage girl your number, how TRB's soul has died from "kindness", and the best lies that customers have told retail employees when returning merchandise. A big thanks to everyone that sent in their comments on Twitter (@The_Retail_Rant)!

You'll also learn the three things that a customer should NEVER say to a retail employee.

It's been one hell of a day, and you've been ready to leave for the last 2 hours. You finally lock the doors, escort the LMAs out, and breath a sigh of relief. But then it hits you. The store is wrecked. You sigh harder. Well, it's that second, prolonged sigh that brings you this week's edition of The Retail Rant podcast. See why TRB hates closing, and all the little surprises that rear their heads after locking up. So kick back, leave a 5 star iTunes review, and as always, wear someone else's nametag.
