Not really bad service. More like... Stuff you should not say to a customer. Ever.



So I'm not one to expect stellar service from Walmart. But this just pissed me the fuck off.

I'm 41 weeks, 2 days pregnant. Which if you know, means I should have had my baby 9 days ago. Well, it's not done yet, apparently. I'm still pregnant. Usually when cashiers have asked me when I'm due and I respond "A week ago", they go "Oh man, well good luck!" and leave it at that.

This girl asks me when I'm due. My husband tells her I was due a week ago. She says, "Oh my god, don't go too far overdue!!! Are they going to induce you any time soon?"

I tell her "Well, I'm not sure. I haven't been able to get to my doctor". Which is true. My doctor has kind of fucked up hours, and as she is the only doctor with the practice right now, she's very busy. And they tend to believe babies will be born when they're born and realize due dates ARE JUST ESTIMATES.

She says, "Oh my god, don't let them keep you pregnant any longer... my friend went overdue and she just let them keep pushing it back and not inducing her and HER BABY DIED". [She said the last part really loud]

My husband and I just kind of looked at each other. He laughed nervously. She tells us to have a good day and I think she saw the really shocked look on my face because she started scanning the next person's stuff really quickly. So, we're walking out of the store and I just look at my husband and say, "Did she just say that? WHO SAYS STUFF LIKE THAT?" He says, "I... have no idea... let's just get out of here".

Yeah. So. Cashiers? Sometimes... keep things to yourself. Kthx. I've been a cashier off and on for the past five years and I would never say shit like that to anyone. Can someone tell me why you would think that's a good thing to say to someone?
