Not Ready to Make Nice

I try to conserve gas by making only 1 or 2 trips out in my car a week. I work from home so this is easy to do. Monday I drove to my boyfriend's house and left around 11:15pm. I drove over to the 24 hour Wal-Mart where I worked about 2 years ago. I did my shopping and was there to pick up the new Dixie Chicks CD, one for my mom and one for me, and the High School Musical DVD for my brother. I waited until after midnight to approach the lady working in electronics. I had to interrupt a conversation she was having with another employee because I wasn't planning on waiting another 5 minutes to see if the conversation ended. 

Me: Hi, I was wondering if you had the Dixie Chicks CDs behind the counter or something since it's just now after midnight.
Worker: No.
Me: Well, do you know if they are in the back then? 
Worker: No.
Me: (getting annoyed) Do you carry the CD then? *fearful that bans are in place despite there being a spot on the shelf that is empty with their name on it*
Worker: They don't come out till the 23rd.
Me: Well, it is now after midnight so it's the 23rd. I wanted to get it while I was out...
Worker: Yeah, well I started working on the 22nd.
Me: *Boggle*

I walked away and let this lady get back to her talking while I found my former manager at the front end and let him know what happened. He offered to go in the back and get it for me but I had already checked out and decided it wasn't worth it. Luckily I carpooled with my mom today and we both picked it up. Good listening but bad service.
