(no subject)

I've heard of this happening before, but I've never actually experienced it myself..

So I'm at Wal-Mart (yeah, I know) picking up a few groceries and a book. I pick a short line so I could get out of there pretty quick.

The cashier starts ringing out my things and I try to make small talk, like I always do. I commented on the recent heat wave (we went from 40 to 80 really quick. I mentioned the fact that we went from cold to really hot, with not many of the 60-70 degree days in between.

The cashier replied, "well of course, the lord's coming and we're all going to hell, so we better get used to the heat real fast" Cue my o_O face, but I didn't say anything.

I just stood there quietly, waiting her to finish with my stuff.

Then she says "Oh my god, I can't believe how disgusting that woman is. If I were fat like that, I wouldn't wear anything like that. I can't believe her, letting her fat hang out like that."

Cue my o_O face again. I look to where she's pointing, and there's a woman with her child in the little arcade area. I admit, what she was wearing was a bit revealing, but the woman had no reason to comment on it, especially to me.

As soon as she finished and I paid, I went to find the first CSM I could, who I happen to know. She was on break, but she told me that they've had complaints about this cashier before and she pointed me towards an actual assistant manager to speak to.

I told him what I had witnessed and he thanked me and told me that he'd deal with it.

Grr...The religious crap pissed me off enough, but the comments about the woman were over the line.

eta a couple left out words..
