This is what happens when artists work in retail....
Here's an art video I recently made that folks in retail sales or other customer service jobs might get a kick out of. Most of the audio is snippets from a cassette tape (circa 1990s?) I found which turned out to be a recording of a meeting between a company owner or director and his employees. The purpose of the meeting was instructing the employees on company values and expected behaviour. The audio was a collaboration between myself and another multimedia artist, Chris Gilpin. The video was made by myself predominantly out of public domain vintage footage. Cheers!
Not a good idea to watch this if you are eating or planning to eat!
Fearsome Bitch Custy on the TV show Hardcore Pawn tries to get her "purse" out of hawk by attempting to climb over the counter and steal it! The custy and sales associate said the word "purse" so many times my ears began to bleed. They were pointing to Coach bags and nowhere in the world of Coach are they called "purses!" LOL Having sold designer handbags at The Big Fancy for so many years, I would have been sent to Purse Detention for saying it that many times! Hilarious scene!
How low can you go to do that to a girl scout? What is wrong with the scammers and theives of Sothern California! Don't they have children too? First we have a guy pulling a gun on a girl scout at the door, another guy calling one a hooker, and now there are people buying their cookies with fake cash! They will have to all now go through counterfit fit bill training just like we did at our stores! And they will need armed security guards at their table which will be covered in protective plastic glass. Girl Scout Cookie selling of the future...
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (KABC) -- At least two local crooks managed to swipe cookies and cash from a Girl Scout troop in Rancho Cucamonga using counterfeit money.
The Girl Scouts had just begun their annual cookie drive. Not only did the thieves buy several boxes of cookies with counterfeit money, but they also asked for change to be made.
"The girls are heartbroken," said troop leader Cheryl Williams. "Because they do trust, this is a life lesson for them."
The incident happened last Saturday after troops set up a table outside a local grocery store. A man and woman passed off the $50 counterfeit bills within minutes of each other.
Williams says the transaction seemed innocent enough.
"(The girls) used the counterfeit pen on the money, and it worked," Williams said.
They had been on the lookout for this type of crime after another troop was hit.
Law enforcement is reviewing surveillance video taken from the store in the hopes of identifying the suspects. Rancho Cucamonga Police Capt. Anthony Onodera said they also reached out to the troop to provide training on spotting counterfeit money.
The troop believes they are out a little more than $200 from the incident, and Williams said the girls are liable for that money.
LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. (KABC) -- A second case of crooks using counterfeit cash to purchase Girl Scout cookies has come to light in the Inland Empire.
Deputies on Tuesday released surveillance images of a person of interest seen at a shopping mall Feb. 27 in Lake Elsinore. The photos show a young woman with long black hair, jeans, sneakers and a black hooded sweatshirt. No names or other identifying details have been released.
Authorities say unknown suspect(s) bought several boxes of Girl Scout cookies with counterfeit money in that area. The suspect(s) had already fled when deputies arrived.
Hot off youtube RHUers! Posted a few days ago. Custy spits on a Grocery worker (video says he's a manager, but he looks more like store security). Most of the video is somewhat far away and hard to listen to, so I wouldn't recommend not even bothering with the first four and half minutes. But at the 5:00 mark the custy does his thing and erupts with colorful swearing. It's really a disgusting, despicable act to do that to someone and I wish they all could be held accountable.
I was spit on at The Big Fancy a couple of times. It's not something you expect to have happen to you when you go to work at a high-end store and mall. On the playground, by the bully, yes.
Have you ever been spit on or witnessed a custy doing it? How did you handle it?
I basically ran to the employee bathroom for a shower in the sink trying not to throw up from the smell.
From Viral Viral Videos:
HUVrTech has just debuted a very real hoverboard made famous from Back To The Future II.
Or so they claim.
The Internet wants to believe, but most understandably can’t. It’s obviously a fake. They claim the board “has more technology within it than the satellites that we sent into space in 2010.”
The only question is, what is behind the video? Is it some type of promotion? A fun gag?
We’ll have to wait and see.
