This brought me back to my days in retail ๐Ÿคฌ


This guy posted something about watching a movie he didn't like. Okay.


But the highlighted bit brought me back to the days of customers walking in the door saying "I have a car reservation with your competitor for a fourth of the price. Why can't I get that here???"


Sir. Take your Walmart coupon to IKEA. Tell me how that goes.

The rest of the story is equally stupid. He alludes to the fact that he was watching Gone Girl and was horrified but couldnโ€™t leave the theater. Then the rest is a typical LinkedIn โ€œhow do I relate a personal story to business in some hackneyed manner?โ€

Itโ€™s painful. But our mutual is a potential client so I canโ€™t take him to task on his post.

I hope he continued the post with a t-shirt pointing at himself saying "I'm with Stupid".

He should have. Instead 8 years later he was like โ€œall of LinkedIn needs to know this story.โ€

A lot of retail places will honor competitors coupons. That's where people get that sense of entitlement from. They think because one place does it everywhere should.ย

That is wild. I get price matching. But the theater gets absolutely nothing for โ€œhonoringโ€ the ticket. The other theater gets the money and you maybe get snack sales.

Thatโ€™s like me going to a Chevy dealership and asking why they donโ€™t have any F-150s for sale. Each day the bar gets lowered for stupidityย

Stupid shit like this is getting more and more common on LI every day.ย 

What surprises me the most is the amount of likes and reactions idiotic posts like this one often have.ย
