I just wanted to take a moment today, and wish a very happy Thanksgiving (NOT BLACK THURSDAY) to all of you.
Please enjoy the time you have today with family and friends, no matter how short it may be, and give thanks for all that
you have in your life. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

With love (and condolences for those that have to work)

The Ranty Bastard
P.S. There will still be a regular show Friday!

Nov 20, 2015

Get prepared my retail brethren! We are one week away from Fucktard Friday!
TRB steers away from the dreaded “busiest day in retail” this week, but still takes time to address more stupid topics, like those customers that love regurgitating their daily dose of CNN.
Also on this episode, a breakdown of the corporate “contests”, and I attempt to rationalize projected sales vs. payroll!
All while broadcasting from the depths of retail hell! (So excuse the background noise).

If you have chronic headaches from computer beeps and stupid questions, then your good friend The Ranty Bastard offers up this week’s show as the cure!
A little more Black Thursday/Friday in this episode, plus what really pisses TRB off about the whole Starbucks red cups pseudo-controversy.
Lots of shout-outs to listeners and fans, a fair amount of profanity laced retail perspective, all presented to you on the 25th episode!
And as always, enjoy, leave a review, and destroy if necessary!

With the holidays right around the corner, it’s time for the corporate directive to execute order 66 (which really means hire anyone with a heartbeat).

A shorter show this week where your friend in retail hell, The Ranty Bastard, will discuss and dissect the few advantages and many disadvantages of hiring “holiday help”. And if you just can’t get enough of TRB, check out my guest spot on Couch Party this week.

This week The Retail Rant turns 21!

Listen as your friend, The Ranty Bastard, discusses professional thieves that help themselves to our

products and manage to turn it into rent money! Also a brief discourse about those customers that

always want to touch us (vomits in mouth a little).

So take delight in the beer burps, the shameless promotion of a new favorite beer, and the profanity associated

with being a retail slave.

A big thanks to both the Couch Party and Drunken Dork guys for their “inspiration” this week.

And as always, enjoy, leave that 5 star review, and destroy if necessary!

And by the way, cut payroll by 20% but we need an extra $5000 in sales!

This and more fine corporate logic on this week’s episode of The Retail Rant.

On this week’s episode of The Retail Rant Podcast, I welcome the author of “Dear Customer: Inside the World of Baristas, Upselling, and the Rules of Serving a Special Cup of Coffee”, Mr. Sean William Brown. We discuss his book, our mutual despise of customers, and talk about “customer service” in general. Also, we get the dish on his upcoming book, “Wal-Mart: I Don’t Belong Here”.

If you’re not following him on Twitter (@SWilliamBrown33) or checking out his blog (thetallmanager.com) after this show, then there may be no hope for you. Unless you buy the book. Then you will be absolved. I mean come on, it’s only $4 in ebook or $10 in paperback. I know, we’re all broke ass retail workers, but it’s worth every penny!

As always, enjoy, leave an review on iTunes, and destroy if necessary.

So we made it to 10 episodes! Trigger the laser effects and fireworks!
