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 worked in the photo lab at Walmart. I had a customer come in and tell me she wanted me to take the film out of her camera. She put the camera on the counter and it was one of those disposable water cameras. I told her that you just turn the whole camera in and that the film doesn’t have to be removed before hand. I told her it was a throw away camera. She got very angry and said that no it was not a throw away camera and she wouldn’t have spent so much on it if it was. She demanded that I take the film out for her. Not wanting to argue any more I went back and opened it up with a screw driver like we did all the disposable cameras, took out the film and gave her back all of the pieces. She took them and left. Later I heard from one of the managers that a customer turned in a complaint about me that I had broken her camera. And he gave her a new one! A couple of months later she came back and not remembering me tried to do the same thing again to get another free camera. I told her the plan wasn’t going to work this time. Seriously, just pay the money for a new camera yourself!
So I went to the local Walmart one night right after work (around 11pm) to pick up a few things I needed. I only grabbed a couple of things so I walked to the express check-out to try to get out of the store as quickly as possible. As I’m standing in line I notice that in the line beside me the cashier is checking out a woman who is dressed strangely enough to get the attention of everyone in that part of the store. As a pretty thick girl…she’s wearing a pink shirt that doesn’t even begin to cover her boobs, black fishnet pantyhose, and white platform gogo boots. She’s talking pretty loudly to the cashier so of course…everyone turns to look. When the cashier tells her the total…the woman hands over SEVERAL rolls of quarters and says “My clients pay me in quarters!” in a very proud voice! As everyone giggles I look at the people in front of me (1 guy, 2 girls). The guy in front of me looks at her and loudly proclaims “Sweetie, I’m a drag queen and even my clients pay me in 5s, 10s, and 20s!” After that night I vowed never to go in another Walmart after 9pm!
My buddy is a shift manager at Wal-Mart. He told me that one night while walking the store, he spotted a promotions flyer lying in the middle of the floor down one aisle. He stopped and went over to pick it up. When he did, he realized someone hadn’t just randomly dropped it onto the floor…someone had taken a shit in the aisle and had used the flyer to camouflage it. I mean, who takes a dump in the middle of the aisle in a busy Wal-Mart?
