It’s kind of weird to see Zeb Colter tweet about a foreign topic (in this case, Scottish independence) and not involve his xenophobic kayfabe—even if he is still typing in all caps. He hasn’t even stated an opinion regarding it (said he doesn’t “have a dog in this fight”) except for the fact he’s surprised that it seemed most folks were voting against it.
Last week, a customer came in wanting to exchange or return a vacuum belt. She shows it to me and it’s broken. I internally groan because our store policy doesn’t allow for these sorts of returns unless it’s -really- an issue and no one likes to hear that.
I ask to see her receipt and she has it. She purchased it six months ago. Internally, I breath a sigh of relief because, after a month, there are no returns or exchanges. I tell her so.
Whoo boy! That answer was completely unacceptable!
Luckily, the vacuum manager was right up there, finishing something else and he came to see what the problem was. He ends up giving her the same answer I did. She gets angry at that and starts to butt heads. The guy points out that, because of the way the belt was made, only the vacuum itself could have broken it—he even pulls on it to demonstrate it and invites her to do the same. She refuses, claiming that we sold her a piece of s***.
Now, a thing to learn about this manager (or most all of them), he is not afraid to shut rude customers down. In a level tone, he tells her not to use language like that since he hasn’t spoken to her like that (while he has no issues with cussing, he doesn’t do so around customers). She doesn’t curse after that, but complains that there is “no customer service in this country”—yes, she had a European accent of some sort.
Then she asks for the boss who was not there that day.
And then she asked for his cell phone number.
Since we all like being employed, we refused to give her his personal contact information. Around this time, the manager is absolutely done and walks off. The lady continues to complain.
After a moment, another customer in line goes up to the lady and tells her to stop being a pain in the a**. The second customer ends up telling the lady that, if she’s so broke, she would buy her a new belt.
The lady sputters a bit about the principle for a moment and finally leaves, once again, complaining about how there’s no customer service in this country.
All this… Over a vacuum belt she purchased six ago, broke and was too lazy to come in about it.
You know how much that vacuum belt cost?
NXT’s crowd tonight was a nice little take-that at smarks still butt-hurt of Kenta/Hideo’s ringname change. The smarks swore people were going to keep chanting KENTA, but nope! Tonight, they chanted HI-DE-O, HI-DE-O!
Way to go this time, NXT audience. Way to go.
It’s funny. At NXT, even if the audience starts chanting for the Ascension’s opponents, they almost always end up chanting YAH YAH YAH anyway.
If I see disgruntled CM Punks fans claiming Kenta/Hideo Itami is ripping off the GTS from him, we’re going to need to have a little talk.
Because Punk got the move from watching Hideo. Not the other way around.
Sheamus is really good with his fans on twitter.
I posted this sketch on twitter after his tweet about “Night of Cats”:
And he favorited it.
I knew he was one of my favorite wrestlers for a reason. X3
Anonymous said: So, that Anon states they're a "true Reigns fan", but they're really not. Admitting one is Team Roman, for whatever reason, doesn't take anything away from Ambrose. No one's /perfect/, but Ambrose has the goods, no doubt. One can support both, yet if someone chooses Reigns over Ambrose instead of the other way around, that's the wrong choice. I'm getting tired of these fickle fans and their "as of now" contingency clauses. One either supports Reigns as his fan during his evolution or don't.
My thoughts exactly to be honest. I mean it’s kind of weird to call yourself a 'true Reigns fan' and then put down other Reigns fans who support him and provide legitimate, well thought-out reasons for doing so.
I’m stupid for breaking down the reasons I do it in an essay? Okay then?
I thought I made it pretty clear in my statement that my support for him in no way meant Dean Ambrose was second to him at all, but some people are simply going to be bullish about your favorites even when you’ve made absolutely no attempt at badmouthing and practically fawn over theirs.
I have my issues with hate specifically, but honestly? I shouldn’t even have to explain why I support Reigns. He’s been nothing but a quick learner, he’s well-liked backstage, he’s humble, he’s never given me a reason not to as a star. I want him to succeed.
I’m not going to stop supporting him just because Creative is doing a bang-up job on him, hell, this is when he needs it most.
If you won’t support your ‘favorite’ during rough times and put down those who do (and have done nothing to bring down others at all), you need to re-evaluate just how much of a fan your really are.
Dean blesses this post.
OH MY GOD!!!!!!!! He looks sooo damn Hot in his uniform!!!
Dean Ambrose on the set of Lockdown!
Appreciate this fine-ass man in uniform while you can, before he goes back to looking like
your sister’s skeevy boyfriend the mugger by the bus stopa sexy hobo on September 22nd.
Can’t wait for his movie to come out, though the irony of Dean playing a cop will never fail to amuse me :’B
Because you legit could not ask for a guy who is anything but ahahaha.
Oh wow! Dean no!
And by that I mean please continue.
LET IT GOOOOO LET IT GOOOOO
DON’T WANNA BE FACE ANYMOOOOORE
