Mind if I ask which one? Would love to visit it

That's what I thought at first, I thought it woulda been easy for them to figure out with the Caramilks, then after a while i noticed fuckin Mr bigs and shit being ripped into
its fucked
and we do put all the chocolate away in plastic air tight tubs at night now, so it shouldnt be a problem anymore
just saying it happened for the longest time

The techs at Best Buy (when I was there) were awesome. If you brought in your machine to get fixed, they would look through your files. They'd make copies of it whether it be movies, games ... and yes. Pictures of your topless daughter posing in front of the webcam.

Some people are fucking horrible with computers. They would find all sorts of shit from bomb making guides to child porn garbage. (Needless to say, those fuckers were caught.)

They charge ridiculous prices for the GeekSquad to come and fix your computer or teach you how to use shit. One word. Google.

Sometimes, on open box computers, they would actually swap parts out with parts that are defective if you had bought a machine with them within a certain amount of months. That's not really a bad thing ... until they tell you, they have to charge you x amount of dollars because they took your old hard drive and kicked it around.

Google everyone. GOOGLE!!!

At Foot Locker when we were short of meeting the daily quota for socks, sprays or insoles we'd throw it in for "free" if you were a customer buying a bigger ticket item like Shox or Jordans in the last half hour before closing. We'd give the SPC Discount and then throw in sprays and insoles to make up the difference, we won't give the customer a receipt either LOL.

This next one's not me but my friend worked at The Big Orange at Metrotown and they would use fresh fruit for bubbletea. The catch is if half a strawberry was mouldy they'd cut off the mouldy bit and still use it.

Aside from like one or two good stories every other report they have is an exercise in fail.

-Watch out for the blizzards. The sink we keep the metal collars in gets clogged the most (lots of excess ingredients accumulate) and when the plumbers unclog it, all I see is this dark, black shit that comes out (I can't even tell what it was before).
-Bananas. If you aren't watching, they'll use under or over ripened bananas. Although, it's the only real fresh fruit we use. Everything else is just frozen puree with about 10% sugar in it.
-Hot dogs. The large dogs usually sit around on the grill the whole day. The ones that aren't sold are thrown out at the end of the day, luckily. Ingredients added onto the hotdog sometimes can be a few months old.
-Blizzard ingredients are also sometimes a few months old depending on how popular they are.
-an orange julius is pretty much - ice, 50/50 orange juice concentrate + water, and a powder called "Flavor Enhancer" which contains eggs, flour, milk, and some other stuff that I forgot
-the thicker julius' such as S&B, Triple Berry, and Pina colada have an extra powder added called "Smoothie Booster" which is a big part of the formula. It has a sort of coconut flavor to it, although I forgot what the ingredients were.
-The pomegranate julius (don't know if they still have it) uses a pomegranate concentrate, which, if it is not in demand, will sit around until someone orders it. After a few days, it tastes like cheap wine since it is allowed to ferminate.
-most times, utensils are only rinsed
-Unused ice milk (for ice cream) from old bags will usually be poured into a newer bag

That's all I can think of for now
FUCK!!!!!!!

whatever we find in the morning we throw away, I guess it's safe if the one you're buying has no hole in the wrapper


Haha I work at rona and this is true.

Also when you purchase your stuff you can tell the cashier " Pro Ad 22876 " and it will give you 10% off a lot of the things in the store but not everything.

oh and DONT EAT THE FREE POPCORN AT RONA, its fucking disgusting as kids stick their hands in there and sometimes bums come and mooch off the free popcorn.

80% of the producers on the movies i work on are all married and all bring hookers to the wrap parties.

oh and the majority of ppl working in film are overpayed, underskilled, cave men who thinks they're the shit. In reality, without union regulations, i can pick a handfull of ppl off the streets that can do a better job.

Disagreed. I think Cayennes are quite comfortable as a daily driver. One of my friends back in Vancouver had a "S" model, and we drove around quite a bit the first month.

The internet use password at internet computers at Kinko/Fedexes are "Pelican" (I saw a service dood type it in once while getting something scanned for a poster!)

haha mmm so thats what all those chinese places are serving when it says deep fried sole...

about that cayenne comment, how can you say the car fails at the SUV part, it's great off road if you've got the right tires, and it's definitely large enough 99% of the time, sure its no suburban or expedition max, but come on.
