Re: WBM Off-Topic Thread

IRM,

My roommate got to go to dinner this week with Lincecum and Vogelsong - went to Sage at City Center. Said they were cool guys.

I thought you would get a kick out of that.

I get my work benefits, plus my Army benefits. Don't wanna brag, but I'll likely never die.

You should go to more subtle and believable trolls. You're off your game.

I am now filled with regret that I didn't turn that around as IRM saying that he saw me as someone who would bang cocktail waitresses two at a time.

Yes, but immediate postgame taunting is for the weak AND personally unfulfilled.

Re: WBM Off-Topic Thread

I was once working one of the cashier tills at a store like a decade ago, and as a customer arrived at my till I had begun to leave to go stock a shelf or something. I was slow to realize that I was just walking away wordlessly from a customer and scrambled back saying, "Oh I'm sorry, I can ring you up." At the same time, my co-worker on another till said to me, "Oh go ahead and take care of the shelf, I can get this." Then to the customer said, "I can help you right over here, sir." The customer incredulously sighed and said, "If you guys can't get your act together, I'll just walk out of this store right now. I won't buy anything."

...all he was buying was a pack of gum. As silly as meaningless customer ultimatums toward minimum wage employees always are, those over 50 cent purchases are especially funny.

Re: WBM Off-Topic Thread

That was an interesting place. I also remember a customer walking in one night and the following exchange happening:

Me: Hello, how are you tonight?
Her: Oh I'm good. I'm not gonna shoplift anything.

Naturally I kept an eye on the rest of her visit after that comment. She indeed didn't shoplift anything. I rang her up and gave her total, which resulted in her pulling a couple of $20 bills out of her bra. And no, given the story up to this point, you can correctly guess that she wasn't even remotely hot. She looked like a crazy cat lady.

Re: WBM Off-Topic Thread

The mother of one of my friends growing up was another cashier there. She apparently routinely removed her dentures to give blowjobs to truckers who would stop in. She would just take breaks and go behind the back of the building where I could see that you would have decent cover.

This seemed like too weird of a rumor to be true until I got asked multiple times by truckers when she would be in next. I eventually started believing.

Re: WBM Off-Topic Thread

This was at a duty free store right on the international border, Wally. I posit that the reason that this job was weirder than any of my other summer jobs is that a significant percentage of the customers (easily more than half) were Canadian.

I hope you're drinking heavily, as I at least have gotten the best pours and service there out of the 25 different poker rooms I've played in. Also the best looking servers by far. Aria

Re: WBM Off-Topic Thread

For anyone that is happy buying store-brand or generic products, I'd recommend you just go with Ritz crackers. Bought a cheap box of J. Higgs crackers, and they might actually be unsalted cardboard.
