Returned TFs at the store that aren't the original toy

Recommended Posts

Don Imus called Cybertron Optimus Prime a mean-assed jigaboo. KO Mega-Octane & KO Technobot Nosecone laughed, and were then fired.

Pretty disgusting, to be sure. But what's even more disgusting than that? Personally I'm incensed that the people who work in these stores don't know jack about the products they sell. Yeah I know it's not possible for someone to know every inch of every aisle in the store, but a lot of people who do these jobs aren't even trying. I'm having a hell of a time finding a job right now despite years of experience and a proven record of good work, yet people who almost literally phone it in every day not only acquire but keep their jobs.

 

Sorry, I don't mean to rant, but sometimes things like this really get to me. I've seen it at TRU's as well, and dammit, I expect someone who works at TOYS R US to know, or at least endeavor to learn, something about toys. Likewise I expect the person at the returns desk, or someone at least, to pay attention and realize that what's been brought back isn't what's supposed to be in the box. Christ, look at the box, then look at what's in it. Do they match, even in the slightest? No? Then don't accept it! Call freakin' security! At the very least don't let it back onto the shelves! Doesn't anyone actually "mind the store" anymore?

I think the worst case I ever saw of this was someone returning HALF of an old, beat-up RiD Ultra Magnus in an Energon Ironhide box. They both blue; that's about the only similarity. Especially with only the front half there, how could no one have caught that??

 

Here's the kicker: I take it to the dept manager, and he asks me what the problem is!!! Even when told there's a problem, the guy still didn't put 2 and 2 together! I really hope those guys don't make over $25k a year for "work" like that. :tfmad

Be glad if your walmart is that dumb about TFs... that means you don't have a collector who's working the toy dept. just so he can get at everything before you do!

he has to be off work before he can buy things

 

and since there isn't a collector working the toy department that guy can keep doing his thing

Putting aside that the Bumblebee is put in the wrong orientation (the front of the car is supposd to point to the right), who in the right mind would do this???
