    If you win, does your budget go up? Do we get a consolation prize of certain people possibly coming back? ;)

  4. Kekaha says:

    Let’s get voting, Consumerist is #2!

    Aww, and I thought this was the “Bottom of Basket” awards. I always get those little BOB stickers all over my food at the grocery store.

      @Hastin: That was a code at a store I worked at as a cashier. You would ask if “Someone saw BOB” to let them know someone “forgot” to put something on the belt from under the cart. Occasionally you would get a dumb person who forgot that part of training, and would be like “BOB who?”, and you would have to use your eyes to point to the bottom of the cart.

        @Git Em SteveDave loves this guy–>: We had the same rule. I can honestly say I never tried it, because I felt like the biggest nerd in the world.

          @InfiniTrent: I would have felt like a nerd, but products that don’t get rung counted against our inventory, which affected my managers bonus, which was in direct correlation to his happiness. Plus, while some people were making an honest mistake, other people were trying to get stuff free, and I hate shoplifters.

      @Hastin: Better than me thinking it was the “Battery Operated Boyfriend” Awards! I need to get my mind out of the gutter.

    Cement your Global Grip? would you become a monopoly? Would you abuse our power and tell us lies to make us buy things from your super sekkrit sponsors? Would you build a weapon of mass destruction to use against us?

    Screw it I already voted. gg
