I was shopping in a Walmart in Kansas while away from home, I saw a very unattractive couple with an older parent. The younger guy was fairly overweight with a mullett, what I assume was his wife was also fairly young and overweight, and the mother didn’t have her false teeth in, they looked like they just came from the local trailer park. The younger couple were on the motorized carts and the older mother was walking on her own. They argued about the price of everything that they purchased, I saw them several times around the health and beauty section of wal mart. Coincidently they were in front of me in line at the check out, and again arguing all the while, When we left, they were sitting in the area where you pick up a cart, sitting on the bench all three of them, they had opened they box of cotton swabs that they bought, and they were all three sitting there diggin in their ear’s……..It was by far one of the most disgusting things I have ever seen.
While I am not a frequent WM shopper, I will occasionally pick up a roll of paper towels or Windex there. In our WM it is often easier to cut through the produce/food department to get to cleaning supplies since the main aisle is often clogged up with fatties looking at super deals on chips or clothes for their 10 kids. Well, as I was walking through produce one day, I heard a “squawk!”. I turned around to see a man with a parrot on his shoulder (no harness or anything, just on his shoulder), and bird poop down his back. I was in somewhat shock, wondering how exactly this man even got his parrot into the store. That’s when I saw him pluck a grape out of the bagged grapes, and hand it to the parrot. The bird ate most of the grape, but flung part of it to the floor. Then the man handed it another grape, which it partially ate flung onto the floor, and another which it didn’t even eat, it just kind of chewed on, flung it and it landed on a pile of apples. Then the bird pooped right on the floor and really started squawking. By that time, he had caught the attention of quite a few other shoppers, and a store employee approached him and asked him to leave immediately. He then began shouting about how they could not legally make him leave, since this was his SERVICE PARROT! He must’ve been prepared for this sort of situation, because he reached in his pocket and pulled out some sheet of paper he was explaining was a copy of the law regarding service animals, and that they had to allow him to have his bird. The employee told him service animal or not, he had to leave or they would report him for theft of the grapes. He picked the bird off his shoulder, sat it down on the produce stand, and started walking out. The employee chased after him, and told him he couldn’t leave the bird there. He turned around and said “you said I had to leave, not my bird!”. The employee told him she was calling security if he didn’t take his bird and immediately leave. He picked up his bird, and told her he was going to the cops to report them for discrimination since he needed his service animal, and they were not allowing him to have it with him. It was by FAR one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen. I felt bad for the poor parrot too, with an owner like that, who knows what kind of things that poor bird is subjected to on a day to day basis. And what medical reason could you possibly have that you need a service parrot for? Parrots are intelligent, but I have never heard of one being a service animal. That was a load of crap he told people to get into a store with his bird (I did some research out of pure curiosity after that, and I guess if you say it’s a service animal, a store can’t ask any further questions and must allow it in). I have a parrot myself, and he may occasionally in the summer ride down on my shoulder (in a harness for his safety) to the OUTDOOR flea market since he likes people. But good god, I would never dream of bringing him into a store, let alone a store that sells food!
For some reason- and maybe it’s the whole “cookies and milk” combo, our WM keeps the baker’s rack of the items they’re trying to get rid of in the milk section. While picking up my milk, I witnessed a family- a mother (riding in the store’s motorized cart- too lazy to walk- later I witnessed her younger children playing and driving the cart while she walked without any apparent trouble), 2 small children, and a teenager stop at said baker’s rack. I happened to see the teenager pick out a container of cookies, open it up, and take a bite. I have no issue with this, as I myself tend to snack while I shop. (And yes, I ALWAYS pay for what I open!) She complained that the cookie was stale…And then proceeded to put the cookie back in the container, close it, and put it back on the rack! To make it worse, she then opened not one, but TWO of the other containers of cookies and repeated the same process! After taking a nibble out of each of the 3 cookie containers that sat on the rack, each time getting the same result, the family moved on. I could only think to myself, “What in the hell is wrong with people?!” I then found an employee and told them what I had just witnessed. They then removed the containers of cookies from the rack and threw them away. It’s ridiculous how rude and disgusting people are. Even worse, those are the ones who keep procreating. It’s time for a new plague. Note to self: Probably never going to buy cookies from the Walmart bakery…Ever…Thanks, guys…
I was feeding returnable plastic soda bottles into the return machine at the Walmart in Ypsilanti, Michigan. The machine was at the front of the store by the picture window. A man walks toward the store from the parking lot, carrying a toddler. He grabs a cart from near the front of the store and drives it in front of my window for a prime view for me of the following YUCK! He lays the kid down in the cart and starts changing a gross poopy diaper, whipping a new diaper from his jacket pocket. He had no wipes, and just used the cart bars to scrape poop from her butt. Slaps the new diaper on her, yanks up her pants, leaves the poopy cart and enters the store to continue his shopping trip in another cart. Without washing his hands and leaving the festering poopy cart outside the store. I felt so sorry for the employee that would be gathering carts! And so disgusted that we really have NO idea what happened to the cart before we use it. BAG your produce people!
