Your door-dinger is a radio shack special. The important thing is to have it on a 100 watt PA amp and bullhorn speakers. Preferably at ear level to where one walks thru to break the light beam.

How about a "bulletproof" cubicle that the victim has to walk into and talk into the speaker to get into the store? First time I saw that at a store (really!) It made me wonder how bad I needed that Night Train and Nyquil...

Empty cigarette packs? Sealed, but empty? Or better - cigarette packs with loose tobacco and rolling papers.

And I am to prefer my Russians lightly tanned, spasibo... (Ukranians would work as well...)

How do we feel about making customers write a five hundred word essay on "Why I thought it was okay to show up at Burning Man without my _____" for whatever they're in need of? I have a big red pen all set to correct spelling.

Should I buy the door buzzer from radioshack or would it be more fun to to just make beeping noises every time someone walks in.

I love the essay idea its perfect. Simple yet very inconvenient.

This is the funniest thing I've come across so far! I'll take an extra cooling bandana, do my best to find you & video tape the inconvenience it'll cause... and I love the essay idea, should be a pain.

May I use your restroom?

Postby dusty_nipples » Sun Jul 27, 2008 8:54 pm

I love this idea!

Post a sign that says 'restroom' with an arrow making it look like it's a private porto. When someone asks to use it, give them the key with a giant wood keytag. And of course the restroom is the regular blue room a few blocks away.

Don't the employees need some sort of first aid training? I think you should hire me. I'm a nurse (for real) and I know how to inconvenience people first hand. Advertise having the cure for a hangover. It would be really inconvenient for them to walk all the way to 3:00 and the outer ring, just for nothing, but to add to the inconvenience, they would sit through a long lecture from me about the abuse they are giving their livers etc and end up with a bigger headache then they came with before discovering we just gave away our last bottle.

I bet you're the "evil" nurse on your ward.

Yeah, I spent too much time in hospitals last year.

An evil nurse with a syringe full of narcotics is better than no narcotics at all! Actually I'm a very sweet nurse, unless you've been a genuine dumb AND are expecting sympathy, then all bets are off.

I have a friend who's a nurse. She gives full catheders to the bad patients, regardless of whether or not they need them.

See, I'm a girl, and I had a stomach incision. I kinda liked the catheter. Except for the bladder infection part.

I'd have to agree and as a nurse, while I may not be as empathetic to the dumb asses as other clients (they are still equally respected), preforming procedures on clients when it is not medically warranted, is not only illegal and costly, but very unethical. Clients rights should be protected at all times, without that we have nothing. And Yes, most nurses are patient advocates, even for the ones we don't like.

That could work great! And for your inconvenient you must now also be the bell when someone walks in so now you have five people in the store all going beep when the next person walks in and so on. Keep the beep going until the person makes at lest three steps inside the store. (kinda like standing in the beam at a store Ding ding ding ding ding um Sir could you come in or out the bell Sir! Ding ding ding I think the key is the unexpected for at a camp but familiar to an inconvenient store.

If I can find it. I have an old school security camera that I will give you. Big bulky and very invasive looking. It doesn’t work but makes a great prop.
