Now, lots of people say that Walmart has bad_service. And that it is idiotic to expect good service from them. Well, I expect good service out of any establishment I frequent. If you're going to work in customer service, you shouldn't be a raging bitch who acts like you were just spit on. I get good service from fast food, and as a person who worked in fast food with many coworkers who continually provided bad_service, it's nice to get some people who don't treat you like the scum of the earth.
Short backstory: I am 19 with a boyfriend. He lives with me and we're eventually getting married. [We don't have the money to move out of my dad's hosue yet which is why we're being responsible and waiting]. My boyfriend and I have SEX. Yes, SEX! OH MY GOD SEX IS EVIL YOU ARE THE DEVIL! PREMARITAL SEX IS BAD!
No. It isn't... but.. you know, at least we're getting married and yeah we're using condoms. Blah blah blah. I went to Walmart because we needed some condoms. On the way out, something in my bag was not deactivated. So the greeter lady grabs the condoms from my bag and holds them up to where everyone exiting and their mother can see them. I've lived here for my whole life and know a lot of people in this town. Kind of embarassing. Especially since I saw a friend of my dads, and my dad's friend saw what she was holding. Kind of embarassing. I've known him since I was a kid.
That's not the really bad part. But besides waving the condoms around she exclaimed to a coworker, "I always have to stop the nasty sluts." They both laughed.
Yes. She said that. I am NOT "nasty" and I am in no way a slut. Hearing this, I had enough. I asked her what she said and she said, "I think you heard me." I said, "I thought that is what you said. And you really need to give me my stuff back now. I'm leaving." [note: I have a high level of patience. I was being nice... I don't know why] "I NEED you reciept. I need to see if you really paid for this stuff." So now, I'm a thief and a slut. I give her my reciept. She scans it over, checks that everything in the bag is on the reciept. "Well at least you're not stealing too" "Excuse me?" "You heard me *in a low voice* Now leave and don't come back. We don't want YOUR kind here."
I almost hit her. I had to really stop myself so I wouldn't. Being embarassed already and now for NO REASON, called a slut and a thief by this woman, I left. I feel bad because I was so shocked and insulted, I actually cried. I haven't ever been insulted like that in my life [which is good, I guess]. I decided to call later instead of asking to see a manager right then, because I just wanted to go home. I called the manager later who laughed and jokingly said, "It's Walmart, what do you expect?" I responded, "Well, you should expect that your district manager is going to hear about what she did, and what you just said to me. Bye!" I hung up, but not before hearing him yell "WAIT!" I'm going to be writing a letter in a few days. And although they sell stuff I like, and they're pretty much the cheapest place around, I'm never going back again.
