true game clerk stories
Some time back, I linked to the fascinating online journal True Pr0n Clerk Stories. It contained the musings of a young woman regarding her experiences as a clerk in a video stor with a large adult movie section. The author commented on the appeal pr0n has for certain people, quirks -- appealing and otherwise -- of her various regular customers, and the everyday tribulations of a video store clerk (rude customenrs, people who don't rewind, and the like). The journal concluded when the author left the job for greener pastures (and we hope Ali is doing well out there...).
In a similar vein, Acts of Gord is a hilarious site that details the interactions of a worker in a video game store. Annoying customers, people who fail to return games and then complain when the store forwards the account to collections, people who ask endlessly repetitive questions...it's all there. Jaquandor of Byzantium's Shores (who found the site on MetaFilter) rightly compares the site to some of the "annoying customer" segments of Clerks, and it's often reminiscent of a less pathetic but equally sarcastic version of The Simpsons' Comic Book Guy.
