While working at HHGregg, customers were told we’d recycle their old TV’s for them. Really we just threw them in the dumpster. Can’t speak for HHGregg corporation as a whole, but at my store this was the definitely the case.
McAllister’s Famous Iced Tea is really just Lipton with a shit ton of sugar. They even have a trademark for the “Famous Iced Tea.” There website says, “We can’t give you the recipe, that’s our secret.” The secrets out, Lipton + Sugar = Trademarked Famous Iced Tea.
My girlfriend works at a small chain of coffee shops here, and was recently told that she had to take down the tips box. She asked why and her boss said it was because the tip box diverts money from breast cancer donations box. The kicker? Her boss pockets the money from the donations box.
If your ever looking to buy something from a Cash America Pawn store you can tell the how long the items been out and how much the pawn shop has into the item by reading the tag. The date is always printed on the tag. You get a better deal on items that have been on the floor longer. They use a code so an employee can decide how much they can take off if the customer asks. So it goes like this, MARY LOUISE=M-1, A-2, R-3, Y-4 and so on till you get to E-0. So the code will read, YLEE or $45.00.
