    what does an 18 year old want to do with HGH, he has plenty of raging hormones already in his testes at that age. No need for HGH for growth.... he makes plent of it naturally, he is a kid, plues his test.

    Then to ask for it at GNC.... lol.

    Did you talk to him any, because its obvius he doesnt have a clue....

    Dude I work at GNC as well and I get that all the time. People ask the dumbest ****. Yesterday somebody asked me if I could get the "testosterone" out of the back room that "you have to ask for". I laughed in his face. One perk of the job is making stupid people feel stupid.

    You may not trust GNC but the main reason I started working there is 1. the discount and 2. i got sick of people being sold bogus items and being told they do things they don't or being sold things they don't need.

    However, I just laughed at him, asked him how old he was and told him he shouldn't touch anything that is going to tamper with his natural hormone production. He then tried to tell me he had takin d-bol...which u could see he barely ate enough let alone taken any type of steroid compound.


    No I didn't sk him to buy a multi It was closing time and I had to do a lot of paperwork.

    I walked into a Hi-Health a while ago(which is very similar to GNC), and the girl working there tried to sell me a capped amino acid product that "is pretty much like growth hormone".

    Don't be too hard on the kid, he had probably just read about the new Muscletech product guaranteed to increase growth hormone one gazillion percent available at his local GNC retailer.

    That's nothing.

    About 2 years ago, my girl (at the time) told me that her best friend/coworker told her that eversince her boyfriend bought steroids from GNC, he was not able to "get it up". My girl told me that she explained to her that he didn't buy the real stuff. The coworker argued and said that she thinks it was real so finally my girl replied, "One, it's illegal to sell and two, my guy used to use it and he got it up all the time because it kept him horny. Trust me, I would know."

    Yeah unlike the sterotype of people who work at GNC I actually ask my customers questions about lifestyle, research done, goals, diet, etc. I asked him if he knew what L-argine was....he had no clue. I told him he really needed to do some basic research about products.

    I like pretending I know nothing and listening to them talk at me for a few minutes. Then get what I need and walk out. Sometimes I dont get anything but an RTD. Now I know why they always steer me towards the MT products!!! They are making money off of it. lol. Besides RTD's I think I may have bought 2 things from GNC.... Melatonin for like 4 bucks and... maybe some vitamins...

    Hahahahah, GNC, you would have to pay me to shop there. I've been there a few times for single bars, but haven't gone in one in at least 5 years.

    Yeah you go in and pretend to know nothing. Tell them your goals and let them get you about $600 worth of stuff. When you are at the counter and he rings you say,"I forgot my wallet, let me go get it in the car.". Then just walk out get in your car and drive off!!!!. Hahahaha!

    lol. Actually... I listen to what they have to say and then they ask how much I want and of what... I tell them I want a bottle of vitamins and a Muscle Milk RTD. They don't understand that not everyone needs a lifetime supply of whey and MT products. They tried to sell me Nitrotech as a simple whey protein... I asked why it was so much and they said because it was a quality product......

    the mark-up on MT is insane
    for example their leukic can go for anywhere above 55 bucks
    and you can get BCAA powder (with valine and isoleucine) for half the price... get more for less
    they have good marketing, and i like their nanovapor except for night time work outs or i wont be able to sleep... but that is too expensive even with my employee discount

    Yet you have Kre-Alkalyn in your signature, which has virtually no scientific support backing it...?
