I just started mystery shopping for shopncheck.com. Fun stuff, you feel weird writing down things about your interactions with employees at stores and things, but it is kind of fun and rewarding. I got a free membership to Sam's Club from them.

I'm just curious, why did you sign up? I always thought it would be a nifty gig but don't you have to travel around for not much money?

All of the shops I choose to do are in Topeka, and most of them are places I already go to, or wouldn't mind frequenting for a few bucks. For instance, the Sam's Club deal was for you to sign up for a membership ($40), and buy a few items (of which they would reimburse you for up to ($13). So, that was $53. That's about as good as it gets.

I have an Office Depot one coming up, they will pay me $5 and reimburse me for $5, so that's $10.

It's an easy way to make a little extra cash by buying things I need anyways.

JUST SO YOU KNOW SAUL...turning a shitty shop report in costs people their jobs...and a lot of these people aren't very bright so it's not like it's easy to get a new job...JUST A LITTLE FOOD FOR THOUGHT.

Or maybe just killing themselves, whichever is less drastic.

Ever think that maybe if they were doing their job there wouldn't be a shitty report to turn in?

when you go to a restaurant...

do you really want people suggesting three alcohol drinks, three appetizers, two entrees and two desserts throughout your stay?

Do you really want people checking back every 5 minutes or calling you by your last name when you pay with a credit card?

"Hi, my name is _____, would you like to start with a strawberry margarita, a mojito or a bellini?!"

YOU SOUND LIKE A ****ING RETARD.

You shouldn't be fired from your job because you don't want to sound and be treated like a complete ****ing idiot.

If you do well as a mystery shopper, I hear that they eventually give you a van and you drive around with a group of other people and solve mysteries at amusement parks and haunted houses.

There's one clothing store I shop at occasionally where the salespeople will call people by their first name. It makes me want to shove their head into the cash register and slam it and slam it and slam it until the top half of their heads looks like cherry pudding.

Yeah, and they trick me every time. I'll be looking around and holding something that I want to try on, and they'll sidle up and say, "I'll take that to the dressing room so you don't have to carry it around." That seems nice, so I hand it over. Then they say, "What's your name?", implying that they need to put my name on it while it waits for me. I'll automatically give my name before I think about it, and then I slap my forehead when the woman says, "Okay, Kevin. Is there anything else I can help you with, Kevin? Oh, and Kevin, did you see the new pants over there?"

At some point, I'll remember in time and give them some sort of Thai name. "My name is Dokathatawatamanipanisorvatham."

Then they will start answering you with "O.K. Doka"
