They obviously don’t want your business so **** them.
Did you tip the greeter?
Sent from my Jackboot using Copatalk
More likely you dragged her away from her texting on the job...
"I'm sorry Karen. Do you have a manager I can speak to?"
Well, you won that one.
Oh wait, you didn't get any beer or anything else you shopped for.
^^^^^^^THAT right there!
That is EXACTLY how i handled one of those little whiney tot`s one day at one of our local walmarts! Haven`t seen the little whiney tot employee in that store ever again after that.
YUP, i probably got the little highschool tot fired, but i dont care. Maybe her next place of employment she might think twice about running her little tot mouth piece to a customer again!
jesus you crack me up
But wouldn't that make you a 'Karen' too?
I have come to love the "self-checkout" at stores. I've gotten so tired of non-helpful employees that I don't want to deal with any if at all possible.
When Walmarts first opened in neighboring towns years (decades now I guess?!!?) ago the employees were mostly great, smiled, would actually take you to where that widget was that you wanted. Now, grump city. Although... a couple years ago on a camping trip to another part of the state, we stopped in to a Walmart and I was shocked at how nice and helpful the employees were. Don't know if it is a management thing or what.
I do my best to "get along" with grumpy employees, but worst case I just shutup except for one word answers and get my stuff paid for and leave.
Non-related Walmart story - 3 years ago in August, I needed some new jean shorts for work (yes, those shorts that are now verboten for anyone under 50 years old, lol). Went to a nearby Walmart, no shorts anywhere. Went to a larger Walmart, no shorts! In August?! I found an employee, who turned out to be a manager, and he apologized and said I was the 3rd person that weekend to ask. Turns out that Walmart corporate sent down the order that all summer clothing would be switched to fall clothing... in early August!
Life's too short...
Before ever even stepping foot into Walmart, you have to make peace with the terms... you're sacrificing a quality shopping experience for cheaper prices. Period.
I say this as a regular Walmart shopper. But I know the deal going in, so angry clerks don't bother me.
Walmart employees are pros at ignoring customers, but when they ignore you then come off all surly when they finally show up to "help," that's when I walk too!
I not only walk, but report it to corporate. It trickles right down the waste pipe when you do that. The next day the store manager calls you and apologizes profusely because their higher-ups gave them a stern rebuke, then that manager sternly rebukes the smart-alec that offended you. I don't have sympathy for smartasses at Walmart- we've all had bad jobs, but we don't smart-off to customers! I don't.
Hey, you made her wish come true. Good for you.
I dont expect much from $8 an hour, but still. I cleaned toilets for less.
We seem to be trending towards a virtue projecting healthy living craze.
I've lived through a few of these before. It'll pass.....hopefully.
But there will always be strange people that act like they are concerned about what other people put into their mouth. And with a killer novel foreign virus floating about these people come out of the woodwork in noisy droves.
The US has a giant, now seemingly unrepressed oral fixation.
Hopefully this mounting fetish will not surpass that harbored by the Communist Chinese.
I say give them a break. No, not the snotty ones. If they give it you have the right to give it back. I see a lot people working at relatively low paying jobs rather than live on the public dole. Those elderly people stocking shelves or checking your receipt you want to give them a hard time? I'm polite to all of them. There, but for the grace of God and so forth. Want to see my receipt? Sure, and a smile with it.
at least, you CAN buy beer at your walmart. we cannot up here.
I never have this problem, because I don't start the problem by talking to employees in stores like I want to hear from them.
No. Karens complain over of the smallest perceived slight. Not an actual problem. I mean, is it being a Karen if you complain at a restaurant because the food is too salty, I mean WAYYY too salty, and the wait-staff does nothing? Or is it being a Karen complaining because you thought the food wasn't salty enough, and/or the wait staff was rude when they really weren't?
IOW, it's about the intent and not an actual problem with a Karen. A Karen would complain to the manager about the food not being salty enough when there is a shaker right there on the table. If the food tastes like a salt-lick and you have to get the manager's attention to fix it, that's not being a Karen.
FTR, the salt-lick thing actually happened to me and my mom. After I said something, the wait immediately got the manager, I actually didn't have ask, yet the guy acted like it wasn't a big deal, and we found out others had complained about the same thing and they kept serving the ridiculously over-salted dish anyway. We never went there again, and the place closed down within 4 months after that - which was a good thing, as it gave Italian food a bad name.
You could have ask if she has heard of Sandra Bland.
There's a difference between an always offended Karen and someone who is of sane mind and spirit being occasionally offended.
