Angry As seen on TV

I saw this endcap for the first time when I came into work tonight! I very nearly quit and walked out the door. JIM KEYES you are truly an idiot, our customers do not want to buy heel cream or whatever that crap is.

When I saw this, I looked at my ASM and said "This is why I hate Jim Keyes..." All he could do was laugh and agree.

It's all on consignment so it's not like we can actually lose money on it, but will it ever move? Probably not, just a wasted end cap, like the Alice and Wonderland crap.

Bleh.

I was out of town last week, so Monday was the first time I had worked in a week. I walk in, say hi to the SM, and start walking to the back to punch in.
And then I see it.
Heel cream? Wha...? Heel cream?

Let me get this straight. Someone, somewhere in an office in Dallas actually sat there and said, "Why yes, heel cream is something that would should devote precious space in the stores to."

I swear, if Keyes ever became CEO of one of the big 3 auto manufacturers, the first thing he'd do is have them start selling slurpees.
