A short flash for anyone who has ever worked a retail job and has been asked to go to the back for any item.

Written a year ago and just now animated storyboard to finish in 6 days to kill time.

Enjoy, and if you know anyone who has ever worked retail, forward the link!

EDIT 9/2/2011: Front page!? A dream come true--Thanks Tom or whoever picks'em, and all of you for watching!

EDIT: A daily feature! Thanks everyone who watched!

EDIT: Before anyone else brings it up, no I did not copy Penny Arcade--The concept is not original to begin with.

Yeah, that's how it goes

Although a lot of the time at the store I work at it's people coming up to the customer service desk asking for a raincheck on a sale item we have plenty of, but their eyes passed by the HUGE display of it when they first came in the store.
This whole animation was great! Way to go!

A little too close to home.

As a unwitting subject Wal-Mart I hope everyone watches this, and realizes that the next time I say something is out of is out of stock. If they persist, we go to the back, laugh at them, and joke about how they can go f*** themselves. Have a nice day.

All of my hate...

Being a former "rulers" Employee, I can tell you it was one of the most tedious and Anoying experiences I have ever had. I had 5 things thrown at me in my time there, and everytime I just smiled and said have a nice day. Well, as of this moment, I am no longer a resident easy tech, But a technician for the school district, and i couldnt be happier. Also. Good flash =w=

Oh how this brings back memories...

first off, nice animation and good voice acting. second, being a former Toys R us employee myself who had the wonderful experience of working back of house, and sales floor, this is definitely spot on. One thing is for sure though, after you work retail for a while, you get a very good idea of humanity. lol

Y'know, retail does show you a lot of the darker sides of people, and stereotypes are in full bloom when it comes to money. I like to think though that the experience taught me a lesson in patience and being nice to everyone who helps you with anything.
