Bad_Service at my own job.

This is bad service that you'll never know you're receiving, which is what makes it a hundred times worse.

Every time I go to the bathroom, I notice who does and doesn't wash their hands. I will say that I have personally seen 5-10 female employees, TOPS, wash their hands after using the bathroom. (Of possibly anywhere from 30-50 different overnight females.) THIS is sickening to me. There is nothing management can do besides post a note on the wall that says 'Associates must wash hands before returning to work.' Unfortunately, that doesn't work. It is disgusting. Some are cashiers, some are stockers, but the ones that are the worst are those who are working with food. I wouldn't be surprised if we get multiple calls that someone got sick after eating something from the deli or produce sections. It is seriously disgusting.

What the hell can I do? The managers know. They have to. We have a female manager who goes in there, too, while others are in there - while others just immediately leave after using a stall, in which they clearly urinate!!!!!!!!!!!

We also have an older man in his 60's that pisses his pants repeatedly (at least 3x a week.) He works with groceries, which makes it even more of a health hazard than if he did any other job within the store (though they're all a health hazard.) But, yeah... what the hell? He's been doing that for the five years I've been working there... and a manager only said something to him ONCE (about four years ago.) Sometimes, it gets to the point that the spot is larger than the size of a compact disc. It's painfully obvious and I assume managers don't say something because it might be embarrassing for the guy. Well, okay, yeah, I understand that this is a medical condition and it should be treated incredibly lightly, but it definitely has no reason to be ignored! If I was a customer and saw that type of person working with food that I'm going to consume (this can be easily solved - depends? medication?) then I'd just walk away.

I really wish a customer would say something, because everyone knows _their_ opinion matters to stupid Wal-Mart's managers. You know, just see someone in the bathroom use the facility and then walk back out to the sales floor without washing their hands. They come into contact with childrens products, that will inevitably end up in a kid's mouth, etc... WTF?
please, Bitch

friendly fire

today i got hit with some rather WTF service from my own company.

a customer came up to me in my section looking for summer reading books, which we didn't have (which he was suprised about, of course, even though the kids go back to school in, what, two days?) so he wanted me to call another store. the phone in my section doesn't call out and he didn' want to go down stairs because he had two toddlers playing in our play area, and trying to separate a two-year-old from Thomas the Train before they're ready is like trying to amputate a limb. so i called from my portable store phone.

Other Store Guy picks up. i gave him the product #, almost all of which start with 978. SO: i started with 978.
he said, "Mmm hmm" in an encouraging way.
