Today's the last day I work for The Man. It's been seven years, so some purging is in order. After the jump are some real people I met in my days with the company.
*A woman who came in regularly to try to convert employees to her religion
*Endless streams of people (men, mostly) getting pissed at me because we'd sold out of a popular item they wanted to buy on December 24th
*A very special man who came in twice a week to see if any new Godzilla movies had been made
*A man who yelled at me because he just knew I was hiding the PS2 he wanted in the back
*A co-worker who wanted to pretend she was going to throw a movie at my eye who then accidentally threw a movie at my eye, hitting a sweet spot that gushed blood
*Two managers who spent most of their time harping on internal theft who were eventually fired for internal theft
*A woman who wanted one movie for four dollars when the ad clearly stated it was a five for twenty deal, and yelled *"FALSE ADVERTISING! FALSE ADVERTISING!" over and over; the movie she wanted was five dollars regularly
*A drunk customer who claimed I was looking at him in the bathroom, and he knew I was gay because I wear earrings
*A woman who yelled obscenities at me on the phone because I didn't know enough about Astrology
*A creepy teenager who came in and asked employees to buy him things with a weird, blank, violent look in his eyes
*An employee of mine who was putting away a John Wayne DVD and said "Hey, I think I've heard of this guy."
*An employee of mine who saw a Harry Connick Jr. CD and said "Oh, he thinks he's a singer now?" (Same employee, actually. She added nothing)
*A general manager(!) who didn't trust a black customer because he was looking at rock CDs and there was nothing he would want over there
*Customers who called me to ask how to get past an area in a video game, as if I was a tip hotline
*An employee who simply couldn't understand that Minnie Driver was an actress, not something the customer wanted for his computer
*A man who attempted to return his lightsaber replica because it didn't work
People are strange.
