This wasn't exactly horrid service, as it was just.. really, bang-your-head-against-the-wall service.

I took my 5 year old to Walmart yesterday for swim trunks, as he has a few field trips this summer. I pulled out a few sizes, and took him to the change room. I stood by the change rooms, there's a long row of mens' change rooms, and a long row of womens, and I wait because there's no one around. I waited for a few minutes, then a girl comes slowly strolling around. I try to make eye contact and say something but she looks at me and glances away, then starts doing random stuff.

She pulls something off a hanger, then puts it back. She meanders to the desk where I'm waiting, and I say "Hi, c.." and then she turns her back to me and starts re-arranging stuff on the counter. I try again, and she picks up the phone and calls someone in another department, says something, then hangs up.

I say "Excuse me" and she turns and looks at me, and I said "Can I get a change room, please?" and she says "Oh, I thought you were done trying stuff on."

(?? I'm not sure how I can be done, if we hadn't even been in yet)

So she walks down the men's line slowly, so we follow then puts her key to the door and then.. stops.. and thinks I guess, then turns around and says "Well I'll put him in ladies because he's just a little baby".. (He's 5, and he looks like 7, but whatever, he wasn't very happy at being called a baby)

So we walk oouutt of the aisle, and go over to women's, and she gives us a room. Literally, 20 seconds after she closes the door, she has another customer and comes and knocks to see if someone is you know, in the room she JUST put us in. And so I say, loudly "There's someone in here". Then she UNLOCKS the door, and swings it open, smacking me with the door.

So I slam it shut and say "I SAID there's someone in here!". I walk out and she's looking up at the ceiling smiling.

I still can't tell if she really was just off in lala land or maybe she was bored and just amusing herself? But wow, it's the most annoying service I've had for a while. When I walked out, there was someone standing there waiting for service.. while she had her back turned, re-arranging stuff again.
