The one with all the Lesson Reviews.

I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with this blog ever since I started using Hummingbird last fall. So, I decided to try an idea of mine called Lesson Reviews. Essentially, it’s more of a “what I learned from X anime” than a review, but the thing is, there will be good and […]


  1. A lot of it is true for Wal-Mart too. It’s crazy how all customers service is really just the same thing.

  2. I was just about to say what she said. I hate the POS system at Wal-mart. You order something and then you find out that POS already orded twice as much, so now you’re stuck with all these boxes of Scott’s Toilet Tissue hoping that a reservation will come in and clean out the shelf. So the department managers and me are always trying to boost the max shelf so that POS will kick in sooner than later.

    *laughs*…we always bash radio shack because we tell our customers we have the same product at half the price. *sticks my tongue out*

  3. Hahaha. No kidding!

  4. Since the RadioShack I work in is a corporate store, our POS doesn’t let us order anything unless we pull it from other stores. So, no problem there.

    Technically, RadioShack and Wal-Mart can never compete with each other because they’re totally different stores. Despite what most people say, Wal-Mart is a discount store according to business standards, not a department store. As a result, the only stores you can compete with are $1 store plus and Bargain Shop. Sorry. :P

    We still have to compete with everything because customers don’t know that!! ^__^ Like our small appliance sales (mainly microwaves and dorm fridges are being effected) because a Best Buy opened earlier this year. Sucks. .

  6. I know, I was only trying to get a rise out of her. XD

  7. littlefreeze says

    Okay. . I was just making sure that you hadn’t fooled yourself THAT much.

  8. What? You mean it’s not true????????? :P
