Have you ever wondered what loss prevention people do when they're not stopping shoplifters? Well we have got the answers on this episode as TRB is joined once again by Sean William Brown! Coming back for his third appearance, we are finally able to talk about his newest book, "WalMart: I Don't Belong Here". Join in as we discuss Sean's time in WalMart LP, and some of the crazy shit that goes down almost daily in America's biggest retailer. And it's not all just stopping petty theft friends, it's way better than that. From thieves with raging hard-ons to NFL-grade tackles, Sean tells some of the craziest tales you will ever hear leave the LP office.

So after listening, be sure to pick up your copy of "Walmart: I Don't Belong Here", which is currently available in eBook format on Amazon and BarnesAndNoble.com. Sean was even kind enough to keep the prices low so that every retail employee in America can afford it! And for the funniest tweets from "the back", be sure to follow him on Twitter (@dearcustomer).

*DISCLAIMER - Yes, TRB's audio sounds like he's in a 4'X4' room. Apparently a certain little Ranty turned up the FX knob when I wasn't looking. I would have re-recorded this episode, but our schedules didn't work out. However, Sean more that makes up for it , I assure you.

Do you already have Christmas products in your back room? Well I hate to tell you, the worst part of the "retail calendar" has begun. As if it's some portal into a deeper part of retail hell, it has opened its doors and is waiting to swallow our souls. But have no fear, TRB is here to fight back on this week's Retail Rant.

The pain in the ass known as conference calls, customers who love talking politics, and the co-workers that think the fridge is a buffet, it's all here in this show. So turn your phone down low, sit in that isolated corner of the break room, and don't mind the people staring as you enjoy a laugh at their expense! When you're done, leave a 5-star iTunes review, and be sure you're wearing someone else's nametag before you clock back in.
