You have to time a mushroom boost and a drift boost as the blue shell makes it's decent. It's also possible to do it without the mushroom and just get a spin-out instead of the knock-up, which is infinitely better than the knock-up. After the shell makes it's circle around you be prepared to move.

Looks like you need a boost shroom used at precisely the right moment.
Fucking blue shells are shit nowadays anyway. You only get them at the back, and it goes for the leader, so you ruin the leader's race, and there's fuck all gain for you either.

N64 blue shells that went after everyone were the best.

Rockshand, It's sad you are having such a hard time understanding this, but you are proving my point 10 fold on why companies like Gamestop and Wallmart stopped the, "Try Before You Buy."

"Try Before You Buy" is defined by the employer.

If the employer decides that "Try Before You Buy" is defined by an employee allowing the customer to try 1 game per visit on there own without help by said employee on: "television settings, walkthroughs, options, and game saves." Then that is exactly what a "Try Before You Buy" is, and anything out of that definition is cutting into another duty predetermined and planned by my District Office and Payroll.

Then you stroll in, and say, "Hey, its your job to do all this shit I want, because you are letting me 'Try Before You Buy.' When in fact its not a duty

Just because you want something doesn't mean you are entitled to it.
User avatar #112 - guymandude (05/04/2013) [-]
What rockyshand is saying though, which you seem to be having a hard time with, is that if the employer says "we have a Try-Before-You-Buy policy. Now, if a person trying a game needs assistance, then it is your responsibility to provide it for them. This includes: putting in the disc, changing the volume, and if they can't navigate the menu, then get them through so they can begin playing. Only one game can be played at a time - if a customer asks to try another, kindly inform him that he cannot." then the "wasted time" you describe wouldn't be wasted at all, since it is part of their job description. However, if there is simply the Try a Game policy without any component detailing that the employee is required to help the customer, then you are correct in that assisting the customer in these ways would be wasting time.

I never worked in a "Try-Before-You-Buy" store, but it seems to me that the best course of action would be to charge a small fee, such as $5/hour. It would prevent SOME (not all) abuse of the system.
User avatar #119 - rocksteady (05/04/2013) [-]
No. I understood Rockshand perfectly.

You keep saying "that's not what we pay them for" but if you engage in the "try before you buy" these things become an employee's duty. Regardless of how you feel it ****"takes away from other duties". Other than the flaws you point out are plausible.

Rockyshad was defining the "Try Before You By" on his own free will, denying that there is already a policy and definition in place by the employer. Even more dramatic denying that the owner can choose based on how he feels it should be.

I know you want to swoop in put 100 words in someone else's mouth and redefine what he said, that's fine and very kind of you; nonetheless, it was this exact same problem that led to people ignoring the large printed polices and procedures poster right in front of them during the early 2000 "Try Before You Buy" phase. Along with the employee explaining to anyone who's new to the "Try Before You Buy" phase; in fact, it was mandatory that every employee had to great you with "Welcome to Gamestop, have you played here before?" Before you even spoke, so they could rattle off the "Try Before You By" policy.

Irregardless, rockyshand would walk in and say "You can't say a,b, and c are not your duty. You engaged in the "Try Before You Buy," now do these things for me.

Waste of time and money.



User avatar #124 - guymandude (05/04/2013) [-]
You seem like you're getting kind of hostile, and I'm not sure why. I was just trying to assist the situation because to me, it seems like rockyshand has been saying exactly what I said.
I'm not going to debate you on the flaws of the Try Before You Buy system, because there are a shitload of them, and its a shame that the 5% of people who respect the store enough to go in and play a game with the full intent of purchasing it have to lose privileges because of the 95% of people who are assholes that take advantage of every good thing until it is ruined.
What I am saying is that if I understood rockyshand (and according to him I did), then he is saying that if all of the extraneous side-tasks that come with the policy are clearly outlined by management as requirements of employees, then it is not a waste of time-it is their job. In your scenario, there is only the "Try a Game" policy, with no requirements of employees. As I said before, in that scenario, you are correct in that the system results in a huge waste of resources.

I think guymandude did a great job explaining, and I agree with him. In the situation you imagine you are right, and the situation I was imagining I am correct. The problem was that we assumed, our situations were the same, when in fact they are not. I hope I didn't come off as hostile to you.

No.

When I eat at McDonald's sometimes I have to wipe my face with a napkin, but if they sold me the food they engaged in the "Me eating fast food." these things become an employee's duty. So they must walk over and wipe my face for me every time I get a little something on my face.

People do not decide the employee's duty. The employer decides the employees duty.

#99 - rockyshand (05/04/2013) [-]
Your company provides the "try before you buy" service therefore it is your employee's responsibility to upkeep that service. You cannot say it is not a duty, when it's a service you provide.
