Yet another week has passed in retail hell, which has brought you back to your weekly therapy session. On this episode, TRB discusses how the drive to work is bad enough without the swerving douchebag, why I won't hold items for people, your retail escape pod, and much more! Also, a new side of TRB is revealed on his new blog, therantybastard.wordpress.com. So kick back, grab a cold one, and enjoy!

A big thanks to Adam and Travis from the After 6 Podcast for having Judge Ranty on last week! Look forward to hearing from Travis on a future episode, along with a slew of brand new guests coming soon!
Ranty doesn't have a drinking problem, he has a retail problem! From the endless loop of soft rock that is the elevator music of retail life, to the thieving bastards who make a living off of lenient return policies, TRB is going to attack them all this week. Add in a few new beers and a favorite musician, and you've got the makings of a new Retail Rant.
And take notes if you're trying to escape retail hell, as we continue our new segment, "Get to the Escape Pod". Ranty will guide you step by step on how to get out from behind that cash register and (hopefully) from in front of bitchy customers.

Thank you NFL! You have redirected the Sunday church crowd to yelling at their TVs and not shouting at someone behind a cash register! It's a small reprieve, but we will gladly accept it.

Straight to the point here. Fuck Miracle Mattress of San Antonio. Last episode I talked about the ridiculous nature of the "holiday ads", and then these fucks took it to the unspeakable level. Disgusting, distasteful, and worse than anything I have seen. Judge for yourself, but I'm pretty sure we both know the verdict.
Ever wondered what kind of "training" those customer service phone reps get? Why does upper management freak out over non-existent hurricanes? Maybe you're curious as to the meaning behind Labor Day (hint - it isn't about "the big sale"). Well TRB has it all covered on this week's episode of The Retail Rant! So come on down to Rantyville and take a ride through yet another week of retail fuckery!

This week's episode features another author from the realm of retail hell, Jess E. Her new book focuses on the 28 different ways that determine if a customer is an ass, as well as some snark that even made TRB laugh! We delve into not only the book itself, but also some personal experiences that lead us each to our creative outlets. Don't mind the synthesized voice-over - Jess takes the anonymous thing very seriously.
