In my area they wouldn't take no for answer. So after declining and saying no, and after the radio shack drone would state that is was required, I would enjoy watching the look on their face when I would politely and respectfully say "1234 Main Street". They would often pause, like they were thinking what to say next and deciding if they wanted to challenge me, but after a moment they would type it in without saying a word.
Back in the days, I worked at Ratshack for a few weeks. I usually skip the "address & phone #" crap. They don't pay enough (minimal wage) for me to get yelled at. Everyone is minimal wage + commission, which means yes, you made minimal wage. They still had some interesting stuff then and I remember listening to cell-phone calls on the scanner. Good times.
A lot of the store management are also into MLMs and got this deluded idea about making the big bucks from Tandy's stock program. I remember my manager who was from India and just had a baby and I was like, how are you feeding your family? People who work there long term usually don't have a lot of options. I went on to a big box computer store later soon after.
