>>5198487 Hell yeah you can. Security is shit and no one watches the cameras unless they suspect something is up. Which only happens when the front counter calls management for a nigger alert or whatever. I've seen people walk out with those huge lego sets and no one stops them. Sometimes we follow you back to your car to grab your license plate, though.
>>5198488 Be prepared to stay well after your shift if you're closing, because you have to re-face the store after the little shits tear it apart. Which sucks for people who use public transit. During the christmas season when the store stays open until 11, sometimes I wasn't out of there until 2am. And then it was back for my shift at 8am. Pay isn't horrible, if you do well, they give you a decent raise every year. By the end I was making $15/h.
>>5198532 Yea, don't listen to the bitch in >>5198542. She's probably only saying that because she's one of those girls who thinks she's a 10/10 but is really only a 3/10 with makeup.
You can approach a chick anywhere except maybe a funeral or abortion clinic. Otherwise, just be respectful, cool, and confident. If she's into you, she'll give you her number. The worst she can do is say no, and then you can move on to another chick; because there are plenty of them out there.
>>5198560 Actually no. The worst she can do is say you raped her and then you spend the next thirty years of your life in prison getting anally ravaged by Bubba the AIDS afflicted Chimp while she goes on to collect your entire life's savings and anything valuable you may have once owned.
And she'll get away it too, even if later she admits she lied and recants her entire story at worst she'll just get a mildly worded reprimand from a cop about why lying is bad mmkay. That's how fuck this world is. And that's why 2D is infinitely superior.
Not making any of the above up, by the way. Know way too many guys in college who had this exact thing happen to them.
When I worked there, TRU used a "greet and assist" tactic to combat theft. This means if you see someone acting suspicious, grant them extra attention, because nobody will try to steal something when you're trying to make conversation with them. Essentially you buly them out of your zone and into another, or hopefully out of the store.
I'm sure I've lost perfectly legitimate sales before from trying to talk to a scruffy faced lad "just passing though" the MLP aisle.
I believe it was my first or second Black Friday event, so this was back in 05 or 06, it was when Baby Alive had just come out and was hugely popular. It's nuts, there's people everywhere, as per the typical horror stories you hear about Black Friday.
Well at one point during the night, this middle aged woman comes up to me and starts yelling and ranting about how some asshole took the last Baby Alive out of her mother's hands (the elderly mother was in a wheelchair), and right behind them is the supposed asshole guy, with a Baby Alive in his hands, yelling and ranting at me how he DID NO SUCH THING, etc.
People are disgusting children, no matter what age, don't let yourself ever believe that anyone is mature or respectable if they're adult, because all it takes is some shit toy like a Baby Alive to turn them on one another.
Anyway, they're fighting with each other, the old lady is still sitting in a wheelchair just looking old and pitiful, and I stop them, tell the lady to just follow me, so we go to the aisle where the BA was stocked, I lift up the valance sign (the things above the aisles) and pull down another BA for her. The guy had followed us over for some fucking reason too... But yeah, I knew we'd stuck a few extras up top since we didn't want to have them upstocked or anything.
Mexican families were awful too. Any time they'd come in, they'd go wreck the Wrestling aisle. I remember one time walking and checking/facing stuff a while before closing, and this asshole was standing there while the kid was climbing up two shelves trying to look at the pegged out Jakks Wrestlers. I was like "He can't do that." and the guy gives me this nasty look, then grouches at me asking if we have a stool he can stand on instead. I'm like, noooo, we don't. Why don't you pull shit off the pegs for him to look at instead of having him King Kong it fucktard?
Ugh, and bikes...fuck bikes! I remember one season where this little black kid was riding a bike through the store. I stopped his stupid little ass THREE TIMES and told him to take it back to the bike section, and each time he'd try to be a sneaky fucker and ride it more. I remember distinctly after catching him the second time to WALK it back to the bike section and leave it there, and he acts all sad and starts walking it...then turns the corner (I followed his ass without him knowing) and he immediately jumps on the bike and starts to take off again...I jumped him so fucking fast.
Little fuck. God damn I hate kids and their parents.
>>5198487 About... seven years ago, I stole thousands of dollars worth of toys from TRU/Walmart. There were multiple occasions where I'd just hold whatever in my hands and walk right out the door in plain sight.
And another story real quick since I just remembered it:
I remember setting an aisle for all the music shit we never sold, Karaoke, etc. Anyway, I'm on the floor, moving the base deck, putting in the new backer paper, and this retarded guy walks up to me and goes "Where do you keep your hard drives?" or something...he was asking about some computer part. And I just stare at him kind of dumbfounded and try to politely say "We uh, don't carry stuff like that..."
And without missing a beat, the retarded guy goes "WELL THEN WHAT THE HELL GOOD ARE YA?" and storms off.
>>5198497 >Staying three hours later Damn, your store has a shitton of extra hours to give out. At mine the max we stay is about 50 minutes and then we all need to get the fuck out whether we're done or not.
