It was the first week of January, about 2 or 3 years ago, I had to make a return at Walmart of some garbage gift someone gave me and while I waited on a long return line I noticed 3 different people returning artificial Christmas trees. First I thought, “these trees must be poorly made and a lot of people had trouble with them.” Then I realized, if you bought a bad Chrsitmas tree, you would immediatley return it to ge a new one. If not, you have no tree for Christmas… Right?
Just then that little light went off above my head…. These people just took down their trees and returned them!!! They basically borrowed their Christmas tree from Walmart and now that it was time to take down the decorations, they brought them back for a full refund. What kind of trash pulls a stunt like that? Walmart shoppers!
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!
When I was in my early twenties I worked the service desk at Walmart. A woman dressed in a lovely beer gut baring tube top and booty baring shorts came up to the desk clearly angry. She threw her Walmart bag at me and said “This said I was pregnant but I got my period, so clearly I’m not!”. With the very liberal return policy, we basically took back almost anything. So, I opened the bag expecting to pull out the empty box of a pregnancy test. What I got, was the actual pregnancy test – still wet! I had this woman’s pee all over my hand! The manager made me give her a refund and I quit working there soon after.
My co-worker relayed a story to me the other day about her neighbor who never does her “big” shopping at walmart. She would only go to walmart if she needed a couple things in a hurry. One day the neighbor was at walmart and decided since she was already there she would do her grocery shopping there also. So she has a cart overflowing with groceries etc and is in line to pay for her purchases. She loads all her things onto the belt, gets up to where you pay and the walmart worker has these grotesque sores all over her arms (some open and some not). One that happened to be open was on her hand in between the thumb and pointing finger. Since part of her job was to constantly pick up items and scan them, this sore would not stop seeping to keep a bandaid on. While the neighbor is doing her best to hold back her disgust and horror at first not understanding why they didn’t not make this employee at least wear a long sleeve shirt while working with the public, the employee does the most disgusting thing. The sore that is seeping on her hand, starts to drip so the employee proceeds to portray her annoyance at this and licks the seeping sore.
