My boyfriend and I were shopping a couple weeks ago at walmart, and it was pretty busy. I took a quick look through the clothing section., and found a cute shirt to try on, and we walked over to the change rooms. There was an older lady working, and she didn't seem to be in a very good mood. I went into the change room, and put the shirt on, and it showed a bit more boobage than I was used to. I wanted the boy's opinion, so I opened the door and asked him to come over. He stood in front of the open door, so i could get his opinion, when the emloyee started freaking out at him. In front of about 10 people, she yells "NO SIR, YOU CAN'T GO IN THE CHANGEROOM, PLEASE LEAVE NOW" as if he's some sex offender. The door is open, and she can see that we're not fooling around, or causing trouble or anything, and he's not even in the changeroom, he's standing in front of the doorway. Obviously if I don't know what something looks like on me, I'm not going to walk out of the changeroom into a group of complete strangers.
We were both obviously embarassed, because people are staring, so I just put the shirt back and left. I mean, she treated him like he was a sex offender, and people are staring at us because she freaked out.
I wrote to corporate and the manager of the store called my cell yesterday and left me a voicemail asking me to call him, and hopefully try and figure out who it was so it doesn't happen again.
I'm not saying that the lady should be fired or anything, but she could plainly see right into the changeroom, and it was obvious we weren't causing trouble.
Do you guys think We're wrong for being upset?
Do you think it's worth even calling the manager back? Have any of you ever had an issue with walmart before? Has your problem been resolved?
Edited to add that the other rooms were all empty, as I waited for the employee to come over from the clothing section, indicating that the fitting rooms weren't busy enough for her to stay in that area. And I was in the first or second cubicle, so it's not like he would've had to walk past other full cubicles in order to get to mine.
