My other half and I work for a company that does a lot of work for Walmart. One evening, while doing our job, we looked down from a “SkyJack” AKA: scissor lift, and noticed two men acting shady. One was the look out, as the other was doing his “five fingered discounts”. The second shady gentleman was stuffing things in the bag.
As we keep doing our work, the second shady gentleman, who was quite drunk, looks up to us and asks where the digital cameras where. Pointing behind us, we go about out work and allow the mangers on duty of the two gentleman of shadiness. We hear a tussle behind us, as a woman joins the two guys, after putting on layers of clothing in the dressing room. (Middle of June, quite hot out). She takes out clothing, a pink Wii remote, and a belly band that slims you, as an alarm goes off. The second gentleman tried to steal a digital camera., by cutting the security cable with a knife The managers come over, after trailing the trio, and put the alarm off and the camera back. A few moments after the managers leave, the camera was missing an the alarm is sounding again.
The second gentleman staggers up a aisle, and disappears in the store, as the first man, and woman keep as far away from him as possible. They try to leave, and the staff stall them as the police are called. There was a scuffle as the second gentleman was going ass over tea kettles and promptly arrested. The woman made a scene and the first gentleman was not arrested. Lesson learned, never ask those who see all to help you be the most inept shoplifters!
so i have a ton of stories! but i will pic a few only. i used to work at a walmart that is known to be really trashy, it wasnt like that when i was there, but it has since gone down hill. it has hit bottom actually. i worked on the floor and also cashiered when it was super busy. there was a woman who used to come in on her motorized chub club cart and hide things in her mu mu and her fat rolls! no joke! her and her kids would eat candy and leave the wrappers everywhere. also, one night i was walking up front to get my returns and i walked past a man in an isle whose little boy was standing up in the basket and peeing onto the floor while he pushed the cart and ignored the child! the best one is the condom we found in the chair in furniture! it was used and i didnt ask any questions! the most bizarre was the man who was caught shoplifting, and he knew it. so his response… to go into the bathroom strip naked and cover himself in soap. then roll around on the floor and!
pretend to have a siezure! they took him out cuffed to a stretcher, with a towel over his midsection! if i’m lieing, i’m dieing!
I have had a long-standing hatred for Walmart as do most decent people. Actually I’ve personally experienced most of the stories published to this site in my local Walmarts. This time, Walmart gave a little back to Stephen.
About a year ago I was working on the road out of hotels for a couple weeks and not near my local bank. When the ‘ol stipend came around I found myself reluctantly using a local WM for it’s check-cashing service.
After waiting in line at the customer service counter for about 17 days, it was finally my turn at the counter. Naturally, I was greeted by a young black, pregnant, female. Allegedly she was on hour 11, of a 12 hour shift and was extremely disheveled; worst night of her life.
I handed her my paycheck of $1,225 which required her to call for more cash. Her fellow employee promptly delivered the bank bag and handed her a stack of 50s. Seeing this, I jokingly said, “Hey new bills! Don’t let ’em stick together!” No reply. She finishes counting out the money, hands it to me, says have a nice day, and I step off to the side to recount it. (Duh)
I start counting in hundreds… 100, 200,…800,900,… 1100, 1200, 1300, …… 1400?……..1500??? ……… SEE’YA LATER!!!
I quit counting there, and calmly walk out the front door, hand clutching an enormous wad of cash. After final tally, Walmart ended up giving me an extra $1,300 on top of my paycheck. Yep, $2,525. In one transaction this young female mistakenly gave me more than she makes in a month. Not that she still works there after counting out her register that night.
