So me and my son stopped at Walmart one afternoon to pick up a few items. It was a late hour, so you would think that it would not be as busy as the day. We had gathered our items and proceeded to the checkout line. Of course, they were all backed up. Over the intercom came a voice saying lane 13 would be opening, so we started towards that lane. Unloaded our stuff on to the belt and waited. And waited. And waited some more. After 10 minutes I asked the cashier if they were ever going open this lane, and she told me that sometimes they never get to what the intercom says. Now that I am irritated, I started to pile the items back in the cart and proceeded to another check out lane. Of course, still backed up. While waiting to be checked out in another lane, lane 13 finally opens, so me and my three year old son headed for that lane again when a small Asian lady pushed my son to the ground and shoved my cart aside to beat me to the checkout. Even after seeing this, the cashier did nothing but say, “First come, first serve.” My son was in tears laying on the ground! And the manager in charge, same thing.
Needless to say, another lane down a couple of off duty police officers saw the whole incident and asked the manager to check me out personally then have the loss prevention officer of the store pull the video footage of the scene. The Asian lady was charged child endangerment, along with finding a gram of crack in her coat pocket and the cashier was fired on the spot. During this whold stint, loss prevention said that 15 customer walked out after seeing this display!
