A Batman With a Retail Supplies Belt

When I was a kid, I always wanted a utility belt like Batman’s. I imagined having a gun that could shoot to rooftops and latch onto their cornices;  the gun would reel me up and I’d capture bad guys. That was the coolest thing to me. I’d play with my action figures and make them do that on the stairs or the side of a table. When you’re a kid and you’re mind is spongy and uncorrupted by societal values and strictures, all you really need is your imagination.

Today, I work with a retail supplies belt and a Monarch price gun, which makes great shooting sounds. It’s not exactly the same, but it’s pretty cool nonetheless. Sometimes, I’ll let my imagination run away with me and I’ll pretend that I am Batman and I have all of his cool supplies. I’ll barrel roll in the backroom and pull my Monarch price gun to shoot my enemy, or tag a few cans. Sometimes the job can get tedious, so you have to have fun with it. Pretending to be Batman is one way I do so. I’m just lucky I’m able to still use my imagination, unlike most people.

GarveyMany movies and books predict a future where human beings attack one another (or aliens) with powerful laser guns. I have no doubt this will one day be a reality. Few predictions of the future feature laser pricing guns, however, which will also be available in the future.

In the future laser Monarch price guns will be standard issue for all retail employees. They will have 3 settings, price, stun, and kill. The first will be to digitally assign prices to objects and the latter two will be to deter crime and subdue unruly customers. Pricing gun labels will become so expensive when all the trees vanish from the earth (paper will become a highly valuable commodity) the switch to digital laser price guns will become an economic necessity.

Customers entering a store will need only touch an item to see a holographic depiction of its price and features. It is sure to make shopping a lot easier. Life will be easier for employees of retail stores as well. If they make a mistake pricing an item all it will take to correct is one delicate blast from their laser price gun. In store patrons become irate they can simply stun them and leave them in the hover car parking lot.
