Busted your ass all year long? Made sales plan by 10%? Signed up the most loyalty cards? Don't worry, corporate will give you a 1% raise, and TRB will tell you why to throw it back in their faces. Why do the idiots/lazy/ass kissers always get promoted? Because they fear people like us. All this and a discussion with @ODProbs2k16 about back to school, all in this week's episode of The Retail Rant!
Got some 5-star reviews laying around that you want to use? Throw them TRB's way on iTunes! Throw that love around, because we know we don;t have the money (we work retail).

This week Ranty flies solo, and takes a swipe at the swipers. Not Tinder, not card readers, but Pokemon GO. People that think that a retail store is the place to be catching a Charizard or that the parking lot is the best place to be fixated to a phone screen, you should not be playing this game in a retail environment!!! There's also a message from long time fan Manager John (@managerjohn), who uncovers a new breed of LMA. And last but not least, TRB brings you "Fuck You Notes", a new interactive segment of the show.
Have a "Fuck You Note" from your retail job? Call the Ranty Hotline at (810) 373-9790 and leave your message to be played on the show!

This week, we delve into the food and beverage industry with the host of the Effinbe Podcast, Steve Arce. He tells tales of customer service hell from over a decade in the business, and we discuss how to solve the problem of customer stupidity. We launch into the rant-osphere on topics like coupons, apps, and all kinds of general idiocy. So prepare yourself for lots of profanity, lots of fun, and a great show!
Be sure to support Steve by subscribing to his show on iTunes and leaving a 5-star review. Follow him on Twitter (@effinbepodcast) and catch up on the problems facing both sides of the counter.

Joining TRB this week in her return to the show, it's Heather D (@IB4ECeptAfterC) to discuss why she is still drinking 2 days after 4th of July! Customers that make up their own post-holiday sales, TRB gets stuff thrown at him, and a absurd interaction that one of TRB's friends had this week. It's all in this week's episode!

So plug in those earbuds (the boss might not like what we have to say), find somewhere that customers can't find you (bathrooms aren't as safe as you may think), but most importantly, be sure to wear someone else's nametag!
Bookstores aren't for interviews! Or are they? TRB is joined this week by @MikeBookseller for some insight into what it's like working in a "big box" bookstore. From cafe interviews and homeless hangouts, to the manager getting beat up and that one overly religious person we've all worked with, you'll find it all in this episode!
Be sure to check out and support Mike's side projects, theSKU.org and krrobar.com. He brings the misery of retail hell straight to the funny pages 4 days a week, and he'll have you realizing that his artwork is your reality every day!
