What an accurate name for a Black Friday show! But instead of talking about the deal seeking dicks that are surrounding us today, TRB wants to make you laugh and forget that misery. And how will he accomplish that? By bringing back two guests who make dicks their business! Returning to The Retail Rant, Laine and Muse are bringing laughter, dick jokes, and some cringe inducing DVD titles this week to help you forget about the shitty shifts you're working this weekend. Along with some retail stories that will make you say "Maybe my job isn't THAT bad", this isn't your typical Retail Rant!
Do the social thing!

BONUS EPISODE!!! TRB here, and I just wanted to pop in real quick and offer some survival tips to all of the unfortunate souls stuck working on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. A little teaser for Friday's episode, and some things to help you get through the two shittiest days of the year in retail hell (yes, worse than inventory day). Stock up on chili and Monster, listen in and you'll see why!
So make sure you've got someone else's nametag ready to go, and a very happy Thanksgiving to all of you sharing the misery of retail with me.
Well, it's that time of the year again. And not that "most wonderful time of the year" you're already hearing twenty times a day. We are one week away from the worst day in retail hell, Black Friday. But that's not good enough any more. Now we have Black Thursday, which is even worse. Listen in as TRB dispenses the hate for companies that value profits over employees having time with families, and the disdain for the upper management that makes these shit ass decisions. Of course there's customers to bash as well, and it's all on this week's episode of The Retail Rant!
Got a shitty boss or a coworker you hate? Always wanted to tell them to eat a dick, but feared the repercussions? Well now, you can finally strike back with dickatyourdoor.com! You can ANONYMOUSLY send them a lovely 6" chocolate dick in a box and encourage them to finally eat that dick! They will never know who sent it (unless you slip up, so don't dummy), and have the pleasure of knowing that you were finally able to offer them that dick to chow down on. And when you use the SPECIAL PROMO CODE "Couch", the team at Dick At Your Door will include a FREE handwritten note so you can say whatever you want!

Wow! 75 episodes and still going strong. And none of this would be possible without you, the fans. Thanks so much for listening and subscribing over the last year and a half. So to celebrate this milestone, TRB has decided to turn this #FucktardFriday into a #FanTakeoverFriday. Taking the show over this week are two great guest hosts, Trey (@ObservingRetail) and Laine (@sexstorewoes). Listen in as they talk about their experiences in retail, the idiot customers they get to deal with, and the unrealistic expectations of the shopper as they search for the ultimate dildo.
Do you want to take over a future episode of The Retail Rant? Let TRB know via Twitter (@The_Retail_Rant), and we'll see if you can fill Ranty's shoes as well as these two do! And don't forget to check out the rest of the #CouchPartyCrew on the Couch Party app (FREE in the Google Play Store)., which now includes last week's guest , Matt from the Let Me Tell Ya podcast!
Check out Tre's website, observationsinretail.com, for tales of the shopper in the wild, and some of the best retail comics you'll find! And if that's not enough, be sure to check out theSKU.org by Sean William Brown and Mike Bookseller as well!
So it's time to kick back, relax, grab a cold one, leave a 5-star review for The Retail Rant on iTunes, but most importantly, do us all one big favor and make sure you're wearing someone else's nametag!
Can't get enough of one maniac ranting about retail hell? Well how about two! So this week TRB is joined by Matt from the Let Me Tell Ya podcast, where they discuss wrestling, and more importantly, their utter disdain for retail hell. Serving up some of his own tales from the register, Matt talks about how to properly give change to a bitchy woman, how mopping is great for avoiding customers, and the dumb shit coming from their mouths in an unoriginal loop. TRB of course throws in his take, and a great episode unfolds for your weekly therapy session.
So kick back, crack a cold one, leave Matt and TRB some iTunes love (Matt insists they be 5-stars), and most importantly, do us all one big favor, and make sure you're wearing someone else's nametag!
Do the Twitter thing!
