I just realized it’s been a year since I heard and shared the craziest retail story ever from my uncle about how an old lady died of a heart attack over what her change was during the first week of his retail job.
i’ve got vague manager permissions at my job now and the very first thing that i marked for store use was a fresh pump bottle of hand sanitizer after a customer licked both sides of his thumb to sort through his money lmao i hate this place
Ew so we have these stuff we personalize where I work and usually it’s all fine but today a man asked me for one of the things and told me he wanted it but I told him he could only get it personalized and he said okay but didn’t say anything about any pictures so I ask him if he has a picture he wants to use or a random pic from the internet and he has the gal to smirk and say he’d like to use a photo of me and it really freaked me out because I was alone at the time so I said I couldn’t do that
And, thankfully he left (laughing, obviously) and the whole thing made me feel so uneasy, like here’s still strange fifty-something years old man asking for a thing with my pic on it like it’s the most normal thing in the whole freaking world. It’s bad enough that I had to deal with a dude showing up at my workplace with flowers a few days in a row
We just learned about the Pac-Man Tamagotchi back in November, and already we are getting some great information! Remember, the Pac-Man Tamagotchi is a collaboration of the two brands in honor of Pac-Man’s 40th anniversary, so this is major!
The Pac-Man Tamagotchi has actually been listed on Amazon UK, giving us some limited information that we will drool over until its released. Can we just say how excited we are that this Tamagotchi is on Amazon UK?, it should be safe to say this one will make it over the pond!
Pac-Man Tamagotchi is based off of the Tamagotchi Nano platform, as we assumed earlier. The device will work off two LR44 batteries, and have the same graphics as the beloved Gudetama Tamagotchi, and Eevee Tamagotchi. The images posted do reveal extremely adorable packaging, and a choice of two shells! One shell is yellow with a black outline around the screen with the classic Pac-Man graphics, and the second shell is all black with Pac-Man graphics. It also appears that this will be a very similar product structure to the Gudetama Tamagotchi. There will not only be two shells to purchase, but two Pac-Man Tamagotchi case packs, that will feature the Pac-Man Tamagotchi along with a silicone case. We must say that the case looks adorable and is modeled after the yellow Pac-Man character.
The product details and description are really not too helpful, it appears to be some standard Tamagotchi verbiage.
The Tamagotchi pet is back in Pac-Man version Feed it, turn lights on/off, play with it, give it medicine, flush after it’s used the bathroom, check it’s health and disciplines your Tamagotchi If he bothers you when he’s Happy, fed, and all cleaned up. Includes character game where you have to guess which was the Tamagotchi will move next. Raise your Tamagotchi from egg to Child to Adult. How you take care of it will decide which of the 7 adults you get Comes with 1 Tamagotchi on a chain to take with you everywhere. 2 x LR44 Batteries included
From looking at the packaging it appears that we will be seeing a mix of Tamagotchi characters, and Pac-Man characters. Was anyone else excited to see old school Mametchi? No word on the gameplay, thats something we are super interested in! The listing does reveal that there will be two Pac-Man mini games on the device.
No official information has been released from Bandai, so much more information to come once the official announcement takes place. No word on release date but the listing does reveal that the item is usually dispatched within one to three months. The 40th anniversary of Pac-Man is in May, so we could expect to see a release around that timeframe. You an absolutely place your order for the Pac-Man Tamagotchi right on Amazon UK, and be one of the very first to get your hands on this sweet collaboration!
It’s a bit much to ask people what kind of panties they wear over the phone. Regardless of reason, that’s kind of uncomfortable. And not totally appropriate in even the best of situations when said person is a complete stranger to you.
Almost got into a yelling match with a customer this week.
My coworker was covering my break at self scan. When I came back she was trying to void something off for him because he didn’t have enough money. And when you already put in any form of payment at self scan we can’t cancel or transfer the other. Between the two of us it took at least 5 tries and a manager’s card to override. Machine printed the suspended receipt which I had to pull up at the actual register. Guy was about to leave after he bagged everything when I had to call him over. I told him he had to finish up.
“What are you talking about?” dude questioned storming over. “I already paid, the other girl saw me!”
“But it got canceled. We had to cancel the payment to transfer it to void off the ite,” I explained.
“I’m telling you, I already paid! I’m not getting charged twice!” he argued.
“It says on here there’s a balance of $X and nothing was paid,” I pointed at the screen.
“I slid my card, the payment f-ing went through, I don’t have anything else on my card!” he insisted.
Needless to say there were about 5 or 6 back and forth’s like that before I told him no payment is final until he gets an actual receipt. When he finally gave in and slid his card, and I have no idea what in the retail gods finally compelled him to swipe - surprise! - the payment went through because it was CANCELED in the first place.
I question how the hell I don’t go home crying uncontrollably after work most days when customers scream at me.
One time while working at Wal-Mart, I saw a woman eating the fried chicken she was about to buy, and blotting her mouth with the underwear she was also about to buy. And of all the things I saw in retail, that is definitely one of them.

But instead of “I’m no prophet or Messiah” he sings “I’m not a fucking supervisor”
Me: “Okay… your total is going to come to… $420.68.”
Customer: “Can you round up as a donation?”
Me: “To $421?”
Customer: “To $420.69.”
Me: “… Of course.”
Ponerlo todo bonito.

I like my job but I swear I don’t wanna do to work today I just can’t I’m so exhausted 😩
“Why are there shoes in the break room fridge?”
- My Store Manager in Our GroupMe Chat.
So I’m just here at my shitty job. No coustumers are here, my coworker is late, my boss will come in later.
So for the past hour I’ve been paid to sit around and read fan fiction and be sad. Usually I do this at home for free.
So capitalism sucks but whose the winner today? 😎
Manager I'm good friends with at a retail pharmacy just texted me about how his day has been shitty. Literally. Apparently a lady tried to lean over the pharmacy counter, to yell at some of the techs or something, and ended up busting her colostomy bag... Doo doo ALLLL over the counter and everywhere she walked. I'm just glad I'm not there lol.
THAT REALLY HAPPENED!? OH MY GOD
And I thought having someone actually pass out while walking away from my register was pretty bad. That’s absolutely horrific.
My job literally hasn’t paid me this entire year & I didn’t show up today & they’re mad at me but like they’re literally NOT PAYING ME & I’m scared to go in tomorrow bc they are mad & I don’t wanna cry 🙃 but like fuck em they don’t care about me just if I’ll come to work😑
Jacob Javits Convention Center
Hudson Yards, Manhattan NYC
Jan. 11-14, 2020
NRF 2020 Vision: Retail’s Big Show served as the headquarters for daytime programming during National Retail Federation’s citywide Retail Week, which ran from January 9 through 16, which hosted seven days of parties, high-profile partner events, networking, exhibits, innovative store tours, workshops, and educational sessions.
NRF’s convention and expo took over the Javits Center from January 12-14, with pre-show opening receptions on January 11. With 800+ exhibitors and 100+ exhibitor-led sessions, the Expo was a massive marketplace for retail innovation. Attendees explored new technologies, learned about groundbreaking solutions, and connected with more than 40,000 visionaries in retail today.
One cool item was a 3D food printer [see above center photo] which can create decorative layered designs out of food - provided it is of uniform consistency and sufficient liquid or soft. The cookies were more palatable than the guacamole paste that was produced.
Keynote speaker was woman of the moment Gwyneth Paltrow, discussing the viral launch of her goop brand, featuring her signature vaginal-scented candles. She provided little background on how the Earl Grey scented wax was developed, which would have been much more interesting.
The National Retail Federation seeks to be the eyes and ears of the retail industry. NRF continues to bring critical foresight and insight to the industry’s leaders, movers and makers, as they have for over 100 years.
