Know thine wal-enemy.
I'd gone to wal-mart. The greeter was a true cow. While she was badgering an employee for not getting a warm air blower to heat up the automatic doors (he was busy bringing in a ton of carts and getting called by other higher-up employees to do things for them), this greeter cow was seemingly taunting the one returns clerk as the queue went up to 6 people. And everybody could hear her say this too.

This greeter cow seemed to be a supervisor or supervisor-wannabe. So while badgering overworked employees, she never bothers to get help from elsewhere.

Why do people still shop there? Their attitudes are sickening.

1. My only wal-experience...
I entered a Wal-Mart once several years ago. By the entrance, there was a huge stacked pyramid of head lice shampoo. I fled in terror and have never returned.

It's strictly Target for moi!

2. yup, sickening. one of my coworkers tried to pay her bill
and got banned from the store because she just moved and her license address was different than the bill address. she told them she just moved and just wanted to make a payment on her bill and they refused. wtf? refusing a PAYMENT? brilliant, eh? she didn't want to be charged for not paying it on time so she begged them to just take the payment, and they told her to leave and never come back.

amazing.

4. They are opening a HUGE Walmart here in a month.
The parking lot is acres and acres. City hall just passed a law so they couldn't open 7AM on Sundays. 7AM on a Sunday! When you really really need baloney.

5. "Open" hours...?
The wal-marts around here are open 24 hours a day. So, just in case you need some $5 crap DVD's at 4am...
