I wandered off for some fuel yesterday. It's one of the things the bastardmobile demands from time to time, and I like to be obliging.

I had some fun when going inside to pay, though. A young lady and gentleman were behind the counter, and the chap was venting quite forcefully about the previous customer who had demanded his sports vouchers (one per ten quid of fuel, people collect them together and schools can redeem them for roughly one ball per million vouchers or similar).

"They're not 'his' vouchers until he's got them in his hands! They're our vouchers!" he enthused. I have to admit that I was wondering if it was appropriate to come out with this in front of other customers, but apparently the previous customer had been very demanding etc.

I got my receipt and wandered over to the side as others were being served, scribbling on it as I went. They looked at me with some trepidation, but they read the name of this site and started to giggle.

May see one or two of them on here at some point.

I'm pimping this site for all it's worth.

I pimped out this site yesterday to a couple of my friends, so maybe they will show up here too. One of them had a couple of funny stories to share with me

I am too, though probably not at the best times. I went into a GameStop recently (October 3rd, I remember that day precisely as I was told to show up that day to find out how many people they were hiring for Christmas) The hiring manager wasn't around that day, oddly, even though she'd told me that specific date. So, I started trading stories with the Assistant Manager (I think he was an assistant manager...)
We swapped a lot of stories, and I asked him "So, you have an internet connection, right?" and wrote the address down for him.
Of course, this all took place the day before I had an interview with the hiring manager, so, I might have blown my possibilities with getting a job there... Oh well, there's also a possibility I'll be moving to Texas in the near future anyway...

:lol: You know I did something similar at a restuarant chain this week and I think I might have misspelled the site's name (I forgot an s). I usually don't do that and I didn't see anyone being an SC to the staff but I'm sure appeciate it.

I pimp this place out, but I suspect that the people I tell think I'm making it up. :(

Am I the only one who didn't think of the site when I read the title of the thread?

I've mentioned this site to a few friends at my school who work in retail and fast food. I also mentioned it to a supervisor and told him some stories, he was laughing pretty hard and I gave him the site. He enjoys reading the stories here.

Don't worry-I thought the same thing as you did. Seeing Raps with a purple fedora and a platnium snakes-head cane means that I can die happy. :D

Wierdly enough, a customer pimped it to me one day. He was the son of a previous coworker.

I just smiled enigmatically.

Is the logo pic copyrighted? I'm thinking about getting some business cards made, and I don't want to infringe on any copyrights, etc.

Raps, I think you've got a good suggestion for a Halloween costume here...!

Pity I'll be on the forums or asleep at that point :p

Unless I'm working etc.

I don't often go to parties, but you never know...

As for the logo, bug me about that. I have a few things on at the moment, including a trip out of the country for three or four nights. However, I have been considering business cards...

Yes, I let my evil secret out to a co-worker. It's nice to be able to trust someone where I work. :D *hugs*

:returns Luna's hugs: It's good to have co-workers to trust!
And a place to vent...
Seriously my last job/s were the worst...I can rant here and it's great! Esp. since at those places- you couldn't trust anyone worth a damn...:cry:

Had to call my phone company/DSL provider re: my bill (ambiguous wording left me rather hazy on the due date, and since I'm now on automatic payment, I needed to know what date I needed to be *sure* the money was in there), and got a VERY friendly, chatty rep. During the conversation, I told her about this site and not only did she sound very interested, but she thought her sister would be too (sister works in medical insurance).

Did get an answer to my question too, along with her telling me she'd relay my suggestion that the bill be worded more clearly to reduce customer confusion/stress. :D

I've been rather clandestinely dropping the name here and there. Usually I write it on a bit of 3 by 5 card and "accidentally"drop it on the counter as I leave.

That, or I suggest people come here for a good laugh/vent/rant/scream/giggle.

I pimped the site out to my boyfriend's sister the other day. She works in hotel management...and boy were her stories some doozies! Hope she joins us soon...

I was pimping this place out like I was getting paid for it on Saturday.

We have a Best Buy across the street from us, and most of the employees stop in for coffee before work, and especially before their God-awful, earlier then the crack of dawn Saturday morning meetings.

They vent, I vent, the world becomes a happier place.

I pimp this place out at work all the time (I don't know if anyone's ever joined, they never said) and yesterday I told the guy at Subway about us. :D He seemed interested.

Guy sat down next to me while I was munching on KFC at the White Rose centre yesterday (I was getting a new Hi-viz vest reading 'Tofu Ninja'). He obviously worked there, so I scribbled the URL on my receipt and told him to come over if it ever gets too much for him.

From the look on his face, he must have initially thought I was propositioning him...

I wrote down the url on the back of my credit slip one night at Outback, since we had had a good giggle with the bartender at the expense of a girl sitting next to me who threw a shit fit about not being able to use out of state license to purchase alcohol.

I guess if telling my mother that I'd report her on here if she went off on the grocery store clerks again when picking up her Christmas food order is pimping the site, then, yeah, I've pimped. BTW, she was perfectly well-behaved when we picked up the order.

Honestly, I think that either my coworkers think I made this site up, or they're too intimidated by some of the stories to register. Oh, well. Their loss, I say.

I've been TRYING to pimp the site to my roomie and best friend, but he refuses to join under any circumstances. He's got this :censored:ed up op.def. thing where he absolutely refuses to consider anything someone else is into if they suggest it to him.

Some highlights from the list* so far are...

1) Terry Pratchett - Candidate for best author ever

2) This Site - Well, duh

3) Dragonball Z/GT - Okay, he can't be wrong all the time. :censored:ing fanboys ruined what value it may have had a LONG time ago.

4) Nasal-strips - He snores... REALLY loud. Wake me up in the other bedroom loud. Even offered to buy them for him. Someone pass me a clue-by-four?

5) Mayo on Fries - He likes fish japanese style, with eyes... especially the eyes... yet he catagoricly refuses to try this, even though he slaps mayo on every sandwich he's eats.



*I would like it clear that I am in no way the sole instigator of all, or even most, of these items. They are a collection observed through years of accquaintance, and encorporation is based

OOOH, another person who like mayo with their fries...bonus if you like skins.

i haven't been able to sell the site, since my co workers are not of the type to enjoy this sort of thing. (sad, but true)

I pimped this site to a customer, who like me, had to work on Christmas Day. He works at one of the movie theaters up the street.

I don't know if he checked it out yet or not; he seemed a little frightened when he read the name. :lol:

I still have my customers suck sweatshirt from when Mr S owned the site

the shock on clerks faces when they see it... suspision and/or joy

Love it when they crack up though, I cant wait to get a new one, this ones WAY to baggy now

Mmmm, mayo on fries.

If you're pimping out the site, just make sure you aren't randomly dropping cards in workplaces, because if a manager or customer finds them there could be trouble. Make sure they go into the hand of the employee who needs them. ;)

I've tried, I've tried... a while back I even had some pens made up with the site's name, slogan, and address on them. (Those on the CS Christmas card list that year got some.) Anyway, I've given quite a few out, either directly to someone I know (not at work, with two exceptions: I'm not *that* much of an idiot), or left at a restaurant table with the tip, or whatever, and as far as I can tell, not one person has ever come here because of it.

At this point I'd like to be rid of the things. I've thought about offering them to CS members for the cost of postage, but haven't because of the rules against spam, collecting personal information, etc.

Are the shirts still available now? I'm not sure where to look here.

Anyway, I've pimped out the site myself several times at my favorite grocery store, especially if I saw somebody ahead of me in line being difficult or a CS having to put up with the perennial uncorrected screaming kid.

When G still had the site, there were CS bumper stickers. When Bekki was visiting the US, she gave me a pile of them....which then went in my Christmas cards that year. I have one hanging in my office now--I thought about putting it on the car, but all I'd need is for some anal-retentive asshole to see that...resulting in a broken window or two.

I got HYHYBT's pens (I'm sending half to Becks), and I've been handing them out like crazy. The guys at the VW dealership (and maybe the Lexus dealership, too) up the street love them. One of the guys started checking us out, and thinks this place is hilarious. I hoping he joins up (if you see this, tell them Bella sent you. :wave: )

My mom grabbed some of the pens and handed one to the head of customer service at her work. The lady almost died laughing.
