    I've had employees hound me for reviews at a parts store (at a very common retail chain that shall remain unnamed). I asked to speak to the store manager and informed him that as a customer I don't appreciate employees demanding that I write a review, he didn't quite understand why customers might have a problem so I set the taillight assembly back on the counter firmly enough to hear plastic cracking inside the box demanded my money back, and I haven't bought anything from them since. Canadian Tire costs more but I put up with less bullshit out of them, which is pretty sad because most of their employees are barely smart enough to remember to inhale when they're done exhaling.

    That's how you deal with these idiots who care more about reviews than customer service, take your money back, break their shit, and buy from their competition.

    Well ...doing a Google search I saw a storage place which had 136 reviews and rating of 2.3. How are people so sure that was the place?

    Gus (or Rooster Teeth) won't be in trouble here because the name of the place was never mentioned nor were the actual names of the employees there who served him.

    I'm just wondering how people know that they have the right place?

    @Jandalman I would go in Gus's place free of charge then do what Burnie said he would do.

    I wonder if Gus can hire/beg/coerce someone to go in his place when the time comes for him to get his stuff back...if said stuff still exists that is.

    I've read some of the reviews... and I wouldn't want to be Gus when it's time to collect his stuff.

    Btw folks "Joe" doesn't exist. Gus purposefully used fake names in the story SPECIFICALLY so none of us would bash the actual workers there. Didn't seem to work too well though. I'm actually seriously concerned now for Gus' sake. The internet army tends to overkill :P

    I cannot believe that people went through and bombarded the storage place with 1 star reviews to bring it all the way down to 2.3. And then on top of that they mention Gus by name and Roosterteeth. Do people really lack that much common sense or are they just trying to cause and issue? Really does boggle my mind.

    I've watched that podcast so many times i've actually dreamt about listening to that podcast. Also reminds me of when my family first moved to AZ and dealing with a storage unit where the crew didn't like that we backed a moving truck through the gates.

    And so a second wave of 1-star reviews assaults the company-that-shall-not-be-named. Also what sumrnm...that guy said. Many of you folks dun' goofed by mentioning Gus' name on your reviews, that ain't helping him folks. Nor is mentioning Rooster Teeth. You realize Gus WILL have to return there to collect his shit right? The man is a self-confessed socially awkward dude and you're giving Future Gus one fucking BIG problem to deal with.

    That being said, I admit I'm one of those who just gave the company a 1-star, for what they are doing IS a shitty business strategy. I did NOT however mention anything to tie back to Gus or RT however. Though I doubt the "company" would differentiate any of their recent 1-stars from non Gus "supporters".

    God help you Gus.

    In Gus's defense, I'm sure those clerks were either very charismatic or very threatening or both.

    Everytime I hear this story, I get social anxiety for Gus because I know there is going to be a follow up story that starts with "Excuse me Mr. Sorola do you work for an internet video website?"
