    to pick up some creatine monohydrate. I overheard some guy thinking about buying some jack3d and one of the guys working there was praising it. I saw it was the new formula, so I asked him what he thought. He ended up bsing about how it's the same as before but they "added more of the good stuff." The guy ended up buying it.

    So I finally get the creatine mono and the other worker comes up and says "yeah, that stuff is alright, but let me show you something a lot better." he takes me over to the jack3d and tells me i should get that instead. so I'm like wtf, jack3d is a stim and i'm buying creatine. he ends up telling me "yeah, this stuff is creatine, just in it's purest form." he denied it was a stimulant.

    :hsugh:

    I don't know how it is for you guys in the states. but GNC here in Canada is soo overpriced and has very inexperienced staff.
    Only thing I ever buy from them is the Mega Men Vitamins.

    I go to GNC when i run low on On standard protein, GNC usually has them on sale for 1/4th the price a couple of months before they expire. Scored the $70 tub for $20 just earlier this week.

    Wisconsin. Seriously.
    Was stocking up on Double Rich Chocolate ON and the guy tries to upsell me the GNC brand whey, saying that it has more protein per serving, better ingredients. I take a quick peek at the label, it says 3 scoops per serving or roughly 20 servings per 5lb tub. Well no shit! ON is only one scoop per serving for 24g. And that works out to 80 servings per tub.

    as a former gnc employee i can confirm that 95% of the employees are idiots. nothing wrong with swaying the customer towards a commissioned item, but the outlandish shit some of these cocksuckers will say is unethical considering the product. my manager's go-to sales pitch on general health supps was "it will balance out your system." what the fuck does that even mean?
