Well, I'm not exactly banned...
...but they will probably try to tackle me the next time I walk in there.
I walk into my local GNC to get a few things (creatine monohydrate and salmon oil capsules), when I notice two weightlifters from my own gym standing at the counter. Now, I'm only on a first name basis with these guys (or should I say stick-figures), so I went up to say "Hi", when I noticed what they were purchasing the "David-Barr-headache inducing-supplement", NO2.
I didn't want to make a scene and be outright disrespectful, but I also didn't want to see these guys blow 250 dollars on two bottles of this shit, either.
I asked the clerk for a pen and a pad of paper, and gave them some information that would most defintely serve them better.
"Are you a beginner?" thread.
Search: David Barr. "Biggest supplement scam in history, NO2."
Thankfully these guys respect me and heeded my advice. They picked up the placebo-effect inducing white pills, opened it, grabbed the protective cotton and shoved it into the clerks mouth. They then proceeded to pelt her with indivdual pills and yell: "You're a phony! A big, fat phhoonneeyy."
Luckily for her, she seeked refuge behind a cardboard cutout of Ronnie Coleman.
Ok. Actually, they just put it back in the locked case (why the hell do they lock these things up?)and bought some creatine.
The clerk lost some commision pay and possibly a little dignity.
So, next time I waltz into GNC, I'm going to be on the lookout for a big bitch with a scowl and a bloodthirsty smile...
