I would rather eat glass than go through any self check out counter.


I witnessed an interesting encounter today at the local hardware store. A rather snippy older woman grabbed a can of paint from the clerk as he asked her if he could put the can in the shake-em up machine. As she was leaving she turned and said to him, why?, there is no color in it. He looked at me and mused, why did I even ask?

I hate Walmart. Any normal store employee would have helped you at the other register. Walmart, seems to have a policy of hiring rude and unhelpful people.

I never have these problems in Walmart. Anytime I have asked a stocker in the grocery dept where something is they didn't tell me, they took me to the item. Since we are retired we are usually there during the day, on a weekday. I have noticed that on weekends there are no stockers working in the grocery department. We also always use a self-checkout if the store has them. We did see one that didn't accept cash but there was a big sign there that said that. I can't remember the last time I had a rude clerk in any store. Sometimes they are grumpy, especially when it's a beautiful day out and they have to work. Maybe I just have low expectations.

My mother was in Walmart the other day waiting for someone to assist her and one of the employees yells "it's that old lady with the gray hair that needs help" she gave her a piece of her mind. It seems like friendly, well trained Walmart employees are few and far between.

One of my favorite students had a behavior disability, and received special services for it. I was shocked to see him working at Walmart as a checker after he graduated. He looked very angry and was muttering to himself the whole time while he worked the cash register. His mother got him the job, and he didn't last long.

I needed help loading some heavy stuff one time. They send this guy to help me, all the time he was helping me, he was swearing. Ok, maybe he thought that I am a man and suppose to be able to handle it. And yeah maybe I can, but why should I?

Sadly, Walmart doesn't pay well, and probably doesn't attract really good help. I don't think any Walmart employee has ever helped me load anything, though the old gals at the checkout are really nice. If I was going for an entry level job, I'd look at Costco.
