    Default What One Retailer Found In His Diamond Comics Box...

    Comic book retailers get most of their comic books from Diamond Comic Distributors. Known for its massive warehouse, modern distribution methods and worker bees, making sure that every shop gets exactly what they ordered...

    ...but not everyone is happy there it seems. Found in one such Diamond box supplied to one such retailer.



    I hope they get a good reference!

    Okay, that is funny. Especially when I can go to my local B&N and even they don't have printed applications; they'll tell you to go online to apply.

    Damn and I expected they found a horse's head or at least a dead rat!

    I was hoping that they would find that their shipment was complete and undamaged.

    Merry Christmas!

    I got an uneaten half of a Nutter Butter still in it's wrapper a couple of months back... Nothing like the overwhelming smell of peanut butter to enhance a toys sales potential...

    I lived in Memphis when Diamond was moving their years ago. I was curious about positions and looked into it, only to find out that they were going through employment agencies and other similar avenues, most likely in exchange for tax breaks from the local government. They weren't hiring people who wanted to work there, just people who wanted any job and were placed there by the agencies.

    About 15 years ago, when I was unpacking some comics from Diamond, on one of the dividers was written:

    ENJOY YOUR MISOGYNISTIC CRAP!!

    I did, but felt guilty about it later.

    Around 20 years ago (yeah, I'm old), I worked for a book wholesaler (sadly, no longer around), and was processing book returns from stores. One packing list with a box of returns had the instructions "Please credit our account or send chocolate."

    A co-worker and I credited their account for the returns, pulled their return invoice, and mailed it wrapped around an unopened Hershey's chocolate bar.

    Needless to say, they got what they wished for (and loved it).

    So, be careful what you say...

    The real question is whether the retailer used the application form?
