    I personally don’t have any issues with Musical Youth.

    Perfect. Taken from real life?

    • Yes, although a long, long time ago. Back to my days in Pets around the turn (ha!) of the millennium when me and the other guy who stocked over there got called out about rotating the bags of dog food over a single expired bag they found (Of a cat food we rarely ever sold). We came up with the idea that we’d do a little spin before we placed each bag on the shelf so they could never accuse us of not rotating the dog food again…

  3. Quirky Girl says:

    Keeping the product properly rotated and safely intact is the first and foremost priority of any respectable employer.

    Or is it the employee we’re supposed to be keeping intact…?

    Huh. I can’t decide where the priority lies anymore. 😀

  4. Awww poor Buster. I can’t help but feeling sorry for the little flea bag.

    Laughing…. Poor Buster though! Can’t even survive a trip to Mecca for some horse residue.

  6. JED says:

    I remember stock rotation. And rolling the cans down the aisle bowling style, and attempted juggling with them, and my boss catching me. Miss those days. Being old and responsible isn’t as much fun.

  7. Horse residue. Hmm. Sounds oddly familiar 😀 I can’t stop laughing. We have been seeing quite a lot of that lately, but then again, in this political climate … well … you can hardly avoid the stuff. I LOVE this one.

    Creamed corn always makes me wanna dance…

    OMP! I can so imagine peeps doing this. Hilarious. My mom a long, long time ago in a place far, far away worked retail for about 6 years. Brings back memories – she now has the glazed look in her eyes. XOXO – Bacon

    Product rotation looks like fun! I stupidly thought it involved something else.
    It’s very wise to put the “Possums on a Roll” toilet paper next to the ad for chileh. You can’t attempt chileh without an adequate supply of TP.

    • As much as I liked the idea of this comic, I wondered if the retail terminology pun might escape some people… especially since I have no idea if product rotation is called something else overseas. The Possums on a Roll/Chileh mashup was my way of poking fun at the silly products retailers will put together as compatible items. I remember someone once took a picture of a nice Valentines Day gift display in another Mecca that also had a little strip of condoms sitting next to it for purchase! That is how you make money…

      • draliman says:

        It’s called product (or stock) rotation here too, I think. I always take my yoghurt from the back of the shelf…

      • I always check the dates on anything that has a short shelf life and compare them with the rest of what’s on the shelf, because you never know when that rotation’s actually getting done or not. Sometimes, the ones in the back are the most rotten!

  11. poor Buster… I hope that’s tomato sauce from baked beans next to your head :o) this song was a nightmare, why we should pass a dutchie? that’s weird, to pass a koutchie is much better…

  12. gentlestitches says:

    HaHaHaHa! Love the back story! 😀

  13. You should have used a Kylie Minogue number to be the soundtrack to this. It’s called (appropriately enough) spinning around…
