    OK, haven't worked there in a while, but wanted to ask what the following meant:  
    Vanna: Directing the line.  
    Mopar: Home office comes, and is the only time we actually clean and nicely stock the shelves and such.  
    TSR: ?? What does that stand for?  
    Skematics: Organizing the items exactly where they belong. The most annoying thing.  
    What else?
  1.  permalink
    TSR = Total Store Recovery
    TK = Team Knowledge
    TK on aisle XX = Hot chick on aisle XX
    MIC = Manager in Charge
    FCO = Front Check Out
    POTO = Purchase Order Transfer Out
    IPM = Internet Price Match
    Match Game = Temporary price change (usually a day or two) which matches a competitor's price.
    Customer "Opportunity" = Customer that is angry because of Fry's fuck-up

    There's at least a hundred more.

    Green tier: items which pay the best commission.  
    Topstock: self explanatory
  3.  permalink
    Some service related ones (not 100% sure, its been a few years):  
    SRO = Service Request Order  
    RTV = Return to vendor  
    Red carpet: Area that can be used to demo something to a customer, it also had a computer with internet to research things. Mostly used to store shit we could not fit in service, this was a big no no but who the fuck cares. I think this also had to do with a red carpet form we would fill out if we helped a customer in service or trained them in something and we would bill another department for the time.  
    Damn, I can't remember anything else.
