That is no doubt a person who has accepted the lack of education of the average American.

So I was mentioning to my SL about Store Support being changed to Store Operations Support, She looks at me like...k....so?

S.O.S.?

She looks at me and Goes OHHHHHHHH

Then this customer walks up to us and Says:
The guy who makes up these names makes more than YOU do.
and Laughs and I was like WTF?

Sounded very condescending and ....he was creepy Ick But I think he was trying to be funny, and it took me a minute to see that he was trying.....

*Trailer for Prom Night playing*
Customer: (in an angry tone) Is it typical for you to play R rated movies on the TVs?
Me: Uhh? *turns to TV* Well Prom Night is actually PG-13.
Customer: Well I still don't like the idea of you playing something I don't want my children to see.
*I look over at her two children happily making a mess of our family section*
Me: I'm sorry.

TNA: Pain in the "A"

Yesterday:

Noon, a phone call: "Have y'all got TNA Impact for PS2?"

(I look it up; we're not getting it for PS2. Two more searches have our order in for it on PS3 and X360.)

Me: "No, sir, we're not getting any copies on PS2. They're only sending PS3 and X360 formatted games."
Sir: "Okay..." *Click!*

2pm:

Sir: "Have y'all got TNA Impact for PS2?"
Me: "No, sir, we will not be getting it for PS2, only for PS3 and X360."
Sir: "You sure?"
Me: "Yes, sir."
Sir: "Okay..." *click!*

4:30 pm:

Sir: "Have ya'll got ....."

5pm, when my relief got there:

My SL: "Thanks for calling Blockbuster in ***, this is My SL, how can I help you?....... For which system?"

(Furiously types.)
My SL: "No, sir, we won't be getting it for PS2..."

Someone kept calling us asking for "T-N-A" and the female CSR thought it was a prank call. (Serves them right for not saying the full title, I figure.)

I love buy 1 Used game - get 1 free sales. The sign staes th games both must be 14.99 or under:

New CSR: *Rings up games* "Hey, ***, why didn't he get one free?"
Me: One of them is 19.99, they must both be 14.99 or under sir.
Guy: Thats ridiculous, it didn't say so on the sign.
Me*I walk over an show him where it says 14.99 and under*
Guy: How was I supposed to know. You better take that down or you'll get sued for false advertising".

It was partially both people's fault. The CSR should've known only 14.99 or under games work. Oh well, he might be gone soon.

Then on a busy July 3rd night, I got a disturbing call:
ME: "Blockbuster Video, how may I help you?"
Moron: "Is this Holywood Video"
Me: "No...."
Moron: "I wanted Hollywood Video"
Me: "Ok then...."

You're on the dot, I told you we're Blockbuster, so obviously we're Hollywood Video...

These two teenage girls walk into my store.

Girl 1: Do you have any movie posters or anything like that?

I walk out from behind the counter and towards the posters we have for sale.

Me: Sure do. We have Batman stand ups for $14.99 and posters from The Dark Knight, and Wall-E going for $5.99 over here.

Girl 2: Oh, you charge for your posters. The store we go to always gives us their promotional stuff for free.
