I worked at Subway about 12 yrs ago and whenever someone was being a dick I'd shove my thumbs through the bread while I was wrapping the sandwich. Made it pretty hard to eat I'm sure.

the thing is, you'll still go out to eat even though you know shit like this goes on in the food industry. it's a dirty fucked up nasty business ...but almost a necessity.

I didn't do it to every "douche" who walked in. Just the select few who were unnecessarily rude to kid in a sandwich shop. Great job assuming I'm worse than the people I did this to...

Not really an almost necessity. Just a lot of greedy fucktard owners and lazy employees.

Also if i am eating and more food is gonna come out but a friend complains about something before another dish comes out, more than once ive not eaten the next dish.

I worked for Blockbuster for 5 years during it's more relevant times and as a customer you could get away with pretty much anything.

You could rent a movie, watch it right away and come back 2 hours later saying your wife just came home and she had already seen it and you wanted to exchange it for something else.

Pretty much any excuse worked for exchanging a movie as long as it was semi-legit.

And back when there were return times, we would always tell you a return time that was 4 hours before the actual deadline. So if we said "before noon", you could return it before 4pm and still be ok. I remember customers would come running up to the store at 12:15 pleading with me not to give them a late fee.

There used to be a ton of employee created fake accounts as well in the system. Customer # 26666666666 used to be Satan, etc.

Being a researcher in biology is exactly what they make it out to be in movies. Doing crazy batshit experiments using funky equipment, making new cell lines, manipulating animal's DNA, working with bacteria and viruses! everyday is something new. Too bad the pay is shitty even if one has a PhD in the field!

no you get commission on the tv as well. but not much, maybe $1 to $30 for average priced tv under 1200 lol.

fs/bb employees are scored on many sales statistics.. PSP (warranties) is the most important one, attach is another (any accessories u can attach to your sale), dont forget services such as install.

the PSP is where employees make the most money. they make more money attaching psp than the actual tv. edit: actually make more on services but services are less common of a sale.

also like mentioned earlier in this thread, the most marked up items in home theatre are the wall mounts, cables, and tv stands. usually like a 350 to 400 dollar tv stand is about 100-150. so if you're buying tv and other stuff u can usually haggle quite a bit on those items.

if ur buying just a tv and that is all dont expect some kind of discount because there is no margin on tv's.

there were veggie patties back in the day, perhaps he meant those? btw, the veggie patties i dealt with at mcd's when i worked there were vile, disgusting things. i could not imagine how someone would pay good money to eat a piece of shit like that.

it smelt awful and it stuck to the grill and was easily burnt. and yes, like the dude said, very few were made for the whole day as hardly anyone ever ordered it. even if it was ordered to be made fresh, to me i didn't see a god damn difference

uhm, that's how you get 89 octane? and btw its a mixture of 87 and 94. 91 is made the same way just a different ratio of 87 to 94.

Hence why it's not called "Octane" but "Octane Rating" instead...

IKEA - you can return pretty much anything as long as it's within their policy's time period. I can't remember how many days their return policy is, but all you have to say is 'it doesn't match the decor of the room' or something of the sort. As long as its within X amount of days, they can't say no if you say simply say it doesn't look as nice in the room as you had thought it would.

For example, I used to have movie and television set decorators buy an entire bedroom (aside from beds, dressers etc) for a scene and return it a few days later, opened, for full credit. You knew what they were up to, but policy is policy and you took it back to be sold in as-is...

Tsunami Sushi - with the wooden boats, now closed.

- On slow days, the sushi would be on the boats for a couple hours even though they're not at a safe temperature
- Sushi chefs have to crawl into the sushi island through a slot, maybe only 2 out of the 8 will actually wash their hands
- They have an electronic sushi roller in the kitchen for the California rolls (it's actually pretty cool)
- Wasabi/ginger on the boats also sit there for hours
- Dead rodents aren't too rare

back in the early 2000's they did have a veggie burger.
warmer - it's the machine that you put in your batch of reg meat/fillets after it's cooked.
At the kingsway location, it's right behind the napkins / paperbags (setup was from early 2000's)

you must do window, the real shit goes in the back. i was a batch cooker got the tribal tattoo (burn mark) still today.

The dispenser's are blender's that mix the fuel together to get the different octane. There are normally only two products in the ground supreme and regular. Supreme has no ethanol in it as well if you didnt know.

PNE in 2006/7. used to have 4 hour breaks...too many sweepers to keep track of.

superstore in 2008. stuff that needed to be kept cool (ice cream/meat/seafood) it would sit under the till or on the belts for hours if the customer decides not to buy it..

craftsman collision in 2009. cars were returned to customers with orange peel and painted the wrong shade.. The manager would blame the material the bumper was made of, if the customer notices.
