Man I gotta get this off my chest. How many times have you walked into these supplement stores and some jackass guy who’s never worked out in his life launches into his sales pitch. Trying to tell you to use brand X because he uses it WTF??? I went into the (rhymes with cock eyes) supplement store here in edmonton to pick up a bottle of protein and normally I would just grab and go BUT today… this guy I never seen before comes up to me and puts on this big front:
“SIR CAN I JUST HAVE A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME IF YOU KNEW YOU COULD HAVE MORE QUALITY PROTEIN FOR THE SAME PRICE WOULD YOU CHOOSE THAT?”
He goes on to tell me the protein I chose has all sorts of fillers and cheap stuff and I should get brand X… he educates me on how Isolate is the best and this one has more. I felt he was verbally assaulting me here and countered that I’m not looking for isolate, and on top of that studies have shown casein slow releasing to be better for muscle growth so leave me alone please. THEN he proceeds to enlighten me that “CASEIN CAUSES CANCER” WHAT THE FUCK.
I wanted to punch this buck 65 idiot in the face for wasting my time.
I said look man, I deadlift over 600, bench 400 plus and squat 5 and change lifetime drug free, unless you’re name is Benedikt Magnusson I don’t care what you have to say I just want some protein.
He gets all worked up and he’s talking so fast about this study and that study, acts all offended and then storms off into the back room. I checked out the protein and asked the kid at the register who that guy was. “He’s one of the owners”
OWNER??? The guy was acting like a freak almost yelling at me I have had my fair share of idiots try to tell me what to do when they clearly don’t know fuck all but I have never been attacked like that. He tried to make me feel like an idiot and he’s THE OWNER.
So I just wanted to post this in the hopes that others will steer clear of stupid people at supplement stores and support the awesomeness that is T NATION and the T NATION STORE!!!
Now I’m going to make a big order with you guys…
T NATION is the best, all their info is free, and they don’t force you to buy something you don’t want. AMEN.
I would love to hear anyone else’s experiences with dickheads telling you what to take when they clearly don’t workout at all LOL.
As for Cockeye’s I’ll never set foot in that store again PEACE.
