Wal-Mart Suck

So, this is about 5 years old, but the recent post about Dunkin' Donuts reminded me.

I had just (like, a week earlier) given birth to my son. I was at Wal-Mart picking up some formula. I was in a lot of pain (had a C-section) and extra emotional thanks to the post-pregnancy hormones. The employee in the baby section watched as I found the soy formula and grabbed a couple of cans. Then she proceeded to lecture me for 5 minutes about what a horrible parent I was. Why? Because the formula I had grabbed didn't have that extra stuff (DHA, I think?) in it that is supposedly going to make your baby's brain better. She had me in tears while she went on and on about how I was a horrible mother and my poor baby was going to be retarded because I was too stupid to buy the right formula. To this day I still have no clue how I managed to make it home, I was crying so hard.

I told my husband about it, and he was pissed. The only thing that stopped him from marching in to the store and tearing into the CSA herself (rather than call the manager like he did), was the fact that both his feet were broken. On a (slightly) more positive note...the manager told him that this wasn't the first complaint they had received about her and that she was going to be let go. I've never seen her again, so I'm assuming they actually did let her go.
