This is something that has long bothered MOM34.
When I say bothered I mean, makes her want to use foul language while putting the elbows to someone.

Walmart has a policy, an unposted policy so patrons can see it, that if merchandise is not in a Walmart bagthen the door greeter must stop you nad check your receipt for said item. REGARDLESS if they have been watching you wait in line for 20 minutes 20 feet away from them.

Usually I am polite and let the old woman by the door see my receipt. If I am with MOM34 she refuses to stop and just keeps going, completely ignoring their bleats of "ma'am I need to see your receipt", such trivial things as receipts and old people are beneath her.

However an incident occured that got me involved.

One day we were buying some book shelves. We had all four of our kids with us and two were riding in the basket.

Of course the bookshelf boxes would not fit into a walmart bag. So here I am pushing one in one basket and MOM34 pushing another in the basket which contained my two small children.

I walked past the lady at the door (who had seen us in line 2 minutes earlier) and she asked for the receipt. I told her that my wife had it, and nodded in my wifes direction.
MOM34 did in fact, have the recipt on her person but as a matter of principle refused to show it to the lady. I am four or five feet in front of MOM34 at this time.
Here is how it went down.

WML: I need to see you receipt for those please.
[still walking]MOM34: I just paid for them
WML: I HAVE to see the receipt.
[still walking] MOM34: I told you I just paid for them
WML: LADY LET ME SEE YOUR RECEIPT [i hear a scraping sound like a basket being drug towards someone]

At this point I turn around and the Walmart lady has her right hand on the basket edge and her left hand on the handle. She [WML] has pulled the basket to her and stopped forwrd progress.
This is where I got involved. Remember that my two small children are in this basket.

I turned and said in my calmest, I am about to skull fuck you voice....."Take your hands of that basket right now. Those are my children in there."
The woman must have been beaten by her husband or something because she took her hands off that basket like it was on fire.

We then walked out to my truck and left.

My question is, was MOM34 in the right by not stopping? There is no written or posted poilcy that you have to show them a receipt.
Was the lady in the wrong for grabbing and yanking a basket with my two small children in it?
Should I have gone ahead and skull fucked her just to prove a point?

This isnt the first time something like this has happened. I hear lots of other stories from people.

Please share your stories. If you feel the need to make a story up to fit in then please seek the psycho anal ize forums for help.

Okay, I work at a very big hardware store chain (features of which would be very similar to walmart) and I can vouch that you and your wife were both being dick peices of shit and are both going to rot in a special hell designed for shitty customers. Good work ruining that woman's day for just doing her job (poorly) because you're too uppity to prove you paid.

1. It is very common for stores to request to check to see if you've purchased something. As part of my job I do this all the goddamn time, and only the most special kind of shitheads and thieves refuse. The reason for this is because THEFT IS FUCKING ENORMOUS IN THE SERVICE INDUSTRY. The number of times people go "oh yeah, I totally forgot to pay for that $500 drill. My bad." is astounding. The second reason they check even if you were in the cue is because CASHIERS FUCK UP ALL THE TIME. They want to make sure you've paid enough/not too much.

2. They do not have a right to stop you physically, grab the baskets or trolleys, or otherwise impede you. They are allowed to ask, look threatening (not really, but they could easily get away with it in court), etc etc, but cannot touch you or restrain you or your kids or anything like that. That woman's a dumb bitch for doing that. I suppose they do have the right to say, not open a boom gate if you're on the other side of one, but they can't physically touch you or some extension of you like that.

3. You and your wife are now probably now a suspected thief. Don't expect good customer service at that store again. You don't deserve it anyway.

4. If I was her I would have just followed you and taken down your number plate, and then next time you came in have security hover over you/check your shit carefully every time you come in since.

Experiences? I get people like you all the time. It's really quite frustrating and for a lot of women at my work quite upsetting, especially when they get threatening like you did. One guy nearly accused me of racism because he was African and he didn't see me check anyone else (I subsequently checked 3 white people and he capitulated). One guy got all up in my grill and was like "Fuck you, you don't have the right to stop me, so you can just go fuck yourself". Another just ignored me.

I seriously wish I could RNC motherfuckers like you. "I'm just doing my job you piece of shit! SHOW ME YOUR FUCKING RECIEPT!"

How hard is it to wave a piece of paper at her? How busy does this walmart get? Seriously, can you imagine how easy it would be to wander out of there with merchandise when its packed?

I'm not 100% disagreeing with you, tho, if you've gone through the checkout you really shouldn't need to be checked, In aus they only check them if you dont go through the checkout, but there is usually an alarm system on exits to detect unscanned merch. This policy is written next to the exits on stores. If its store policy it should be displayed, surely?

Eat me.

I stopped and waited for MOM34 to show her the receipt. I didnt keep walking out the door.

Theft and cashier fuck ups arent my responsibility.

Agreed. That was my only problem.

I didnt think so.

They dont rememebr people from trip to trip. Nice in theory, impossible without wasting resources on non thieves.

I think you didnt read my OP. I usually show them my receipt or make sure that a bag is over the merchandise as much as possible if it will fit in one.
Maybe Walmart should provide bigger bags for large items.

As for threatening ,a few points....
1)when my children become involved most of my civility goes out the window.
You must not have children, or at least any you care about. Thats a line you dont cross with me. Touching or attempting to touch or interfere with my kids.
2) I simply used my no nonsense, you fucked up voice, which was not raised above a normal level. MOM34 calls it my Cop voice.
3)I had stopped to wait for MOM34 to catch up.

You dont really wave it at them. They take it from you and go over the entire receipt looking for said item. Sometimes they cant find it and you have to point out the item on the receipt.

Every walmart has an alarm system but not everything has an alarm tag on it.
There is no posted policy on this, despite the numerous problems it causes Walmart.

The local Wal-Mart only stops you and asks for a receipt if the alarm sounds or if they see you exiting somewhere like automotive or the garden section with goods not purchased at that cashier.

I usually don't have a problem with this

Lebell
9th November 09, 11:20 AM
it's simple, mom34 is right.
if it's not an official rule of the store it's rude towards the customers because by asking the receipt you are basically saying to your customers: ' we don't trust you.'
its double stupid since the people checking receipts can just use their eyes and see who has been standing in line.

so wallmart is wrong, quite simple.
they either make a rule that you have to show receipts when asked by wallmart personel or drop those checkups.

shitty rules and shitty guidelines create shitty customers.
if you run a bussiness you make your money from your customers so you better treat them fair.

always remember that the customer provides your salary, it doesnt mean you have to be spineless slave to an unreeasonable customer, but until then you better be real fucking polite.
most storeslaves dont grasp the idea because they just work there, they dont own the bussiness.

in short:mom34 has teh korrekt.

Walmart sucks. Well, the small walmarts are just stores, but the Massive mega Walmarts that are like a small city beaconing cross boarder shopping, are a nightmare to leave.

The crossing guard applicant rejects are manning the gates, and go through everything. Messing things up for the boarder guards (police academy rejects) and causing delays.

Cosco has the correct - no bags- only boxes, and they initial everything.

One of the reasons Wal-Mart uses small defenseless ol-wimmen to perform this function is that customers then have someone to take out their agression on, after standing in the one open lane of a fifty lane store with 300 other dissatisfied customers.

MOM34 doesnt have this problem with Sams Club ( a Walmart wholesale club) because the policy is posted and they check EVERYONE.

They (walmart) only provides one size bag. If it is something like a large box of diapers, electronics equipment or something large then it doesnt fit in a bag.

She should have stopped out of courtesy and simply shown her receipt. I told her as much after we left.

Groceries are cheaper there.We spend around 1k a month on groceries and have found that they are 10% cheaoer than any other place. I hate the place. Usually we go to Target for household stuff and kids clothes, or Kohls, but the Super Target is farther away than Walmart.

This isn't a good defense, you do not get good deals at large chains like WalMart, Target, or Kohl's because they only stock brands with large markups, usually 2.5x or beyond. The prices are lower because of a drop in quality. You have to find an equilibrium in paying a little more for a product that uses quality materials and labor and has a lower markup, which are brands that stores like Walmart won't touch because of the small margins.

Shop online.

For food and electronics, or clothing that you're already familiar with. But when you're buying new clothes, furniture, or house wares you really need to see them in person, at least before you hunt for them online.

But shopping online doesn't necessarily save you money because often they have to charge a certain minimum price so that brick&mortar stores will still carry the brand.

EVERY single time I walk into Borders bookstore, I set the alarms off. This is before I've even started shopping for the day, all I usually have on me is a small handbag, wallet and keys. WTH? I cringe everytime I walk through that entrance and have now just stopped going there.

Walmart sets the policies for their store. She knew about the policy, but chose to enter the store anyhow.

Agreed.



She was wrong.

So was the lady for stopping the cart, but turning this into a "I waz protectin my yungins" thing against an old lady door greeter is a load of dookie.

Mega Jesus-Sama, do you have any opinion regarding the quality of wares sold at Ikea? I'm getting ready to move into a new apartment and need some new furniture; knowing your critical eye, I'd appreciate any insight you may have (or if you'd recommend any other brands/retailers).

IKEA mostly sucks, but I don't follow furniture enough to recommend where to get great deals on new, hip furniture. The best recommendation I can give you is to find your local antique stores and look for sturdy old furniture in good condition, or at least repairable condition.

But if you don't want dead people's chairs (And I don't blame you) still go and get to know the look and feel of good furniture. It's the same way that you can feel the thickness of good clothes, or the sturdiness of fine glassware, compared to cheap clothes or cheap glass.

I may still drop by Ikea in the next few days, but I'll definitely check out some local antique stores and will most definitely NOT shop for furniture at Wal-Mart or Target.

Yo Kid Miracleman, how much furniture do you need? I mean, are you just trying to outfit your place cheaply/sturdily or are you trying to set up a pimpin' pad? If you're going for the former you should try and check out the second hand circuit. You know, garage sales, 'freecycle' (if you guys have it), classifieds, that sort of thing. Usually there's a services somewhere in most cities where people will literally give away their old shit, furniture beinga good example. It may not be the sexiest stuff in the world but as long as you're a bit selective you'll probably get some half-way decent stuff.

socratic, I'm just looking for stuff that's sturdy and will last me a while... I'm fairly minimalist when it comes to furniture. I've already got a secondhand dark brown leather sofa and dark green leather recliner that I managed to snag from my parents, plus a used glass-top coffee table and lamp from my brother. However, I still need a computer desk, dinner table w/ chairs, a small side table to put next to the couch, and a TV stand big enough for a 40+ inch HDTV. I'll be sure to check out the local resale shops and Craigslist in the near future.

Oh, and I've managed to hunt down a photo of oldman34 and the missus "in the wild":

I agree that in a way I enable her snooty behavior since she doesnt act like this when Im not there. (I dont think).
My past has given her the bravado to know that she and her children ( I say hers because I saw them come out of her, not sure about the "mine" part) will be protected against any verbal or physical confrontation her mouth can get her in.

Maybe next time I need to follow your advice. The next person that jumps in front of her in traffic I need to get out at the red light , pull them out of the car and make sure they spend the rest of their life in a hoveround.

However, there are extenuatiing circumstances besides my self imposed restraint that would prevent me from doing this.

Maybe I need to tell her that next time she gets someone riled up at her that I am either going to beat the ever loving shit out of them, or just walk away...her choice.
I just cant walk away though. Despite my rugged exterior.....I have been with her for 20 years.

I think it's hilarious how this was posted in the guise of actually looking for feedback. You were a dick. Did you think the have-crippled wal-mart lady was going to kidnap/molest your precious kids? Oh man, you put some bass in your voice with an old lady how cool.

Your wife WAS being an utter snob. It does not matter at all that you were in a line - people steal by wearing things out, by putting them inside other merch, by altering boxes...CASHIERS also make mistakes and steal by under or over ringing sometimes. People also steal unattended carts between checkout and the door sometimes, or just put large merch on a dolly and walk confidently out the door with it.


also, socratic, what store personnel can and can't do to customers actually varies pretty widely in the US. Some places, employees can bar people or hold them for short periods physically.

mjs: markup at big box stores is certainly not "2.5x" and more expensive "quality" products do not have lower markups than big box stores. You are utterly confused about their business model. Walmart has a varible markup, just like every place that sells things from more than one category - obviously. Typical markup at a small mom and pop is double - 100%. Buy for 5, sell for 10. I assume this would be "2x" in your example. This is how most msrps are set. What walmart does is keep broad pricing low by having some high markup lines, and by owning supply chains so that they have fewer steps of markup and keep a higher percentage of competitve msrp.

IE, the reason walmart markup is higher on some items on paper is because they own the supply chain - they get the product to retail in fewer steps. You're comparing cost to manufacture to retail cost as though it was the soul form of and factor in markup. You're also flatly comparing things to other things that simply cost more, ie "A ten dollar table from walmart isn't as nice as a 50 one from The Local Table Store" - well of course not. Cheap shit has a role in our lives. AVERAGE walmart markup - their real, total margin - ends up being something like 15%. Which is to say, about the same as other big boxes. Walmart skimps in other areas - fixtures is a huge one, total labor cost another - and also drives wholesale demand and takes a cradle-to-shelf approach with many products.

Finally, they have a duty only to be competitive with their pricing - how much of it they than keep is a matter of how well they run their company. They don't have any particular duty to limit their profit. The right price to charge is one cent less then your competition.

There's a tendency to berate walmart shoppers as though they're simply too fucking dumb to understand that there's nicer stuff out there. They might also be accepting lower quality because, you know, they don't have any fucking money.

No it wasnt on the cart it was across one of the kids chests. I cant really explain how she was standing. Kind of like she stepped in fromt of my wife and pulled the basket to her seperating her from the basket. Id almsot ahve to show you.

No it wasnt on the cart it was across one of the kids chests. I cant really explain how she was standing. Kind of like she stepped in fromt of my wife and pulled the basket to her seperating her from the basket. Id almsot ahve to show you.
I understand about people using their kids as a way of stealing. I once saw a lady who put stuff under her baby in the baby carrier.
I tried that but the bookshelf wouldnt fit.

now if i know im going to a store where everything is some 40 to 50% cheaper then other stores im not going to expect to encounter any friendly civilised personel, that would be unrealistic.

Johnny Cache,

Mules only go about 20 miles a day before they need R&R, so a 10 mile radius is about the geographical limit of those from Possum Holler....if you plan to return home.

But seriously folks, this is a good example of a vague complaint I always make about the shiftless, fucking morons who make MY life difficult. It's only been kinda recently that I've been able to put it into words.

It's about those who don't understand the appetite of administrations and beaurocracies.

For most of us, it starts when we go to school and experience mysterious things like "teacher institute days" or we're subjected to rules and policies which we may not agree with, and may never get a direct explanation for.

So then we grow up...get driver licenses, insurance, go to college, deal with student aid, get a job etc. The job may very well be a cog in some beaurocratic wheel. Then we start "getting it". Ah, yes...this is why such-and-such person needs X piece of paper. Ok.

So when many of us, are say, arrested....or have to show a receipt at Wal-Mart we understand on an immediate and instinctual level that there is a back-story to the process. We just "get it", immediately.

So the following possibilities exist for the morans who don't "get it" like the rest of the world:

-They are poor [______ ] trash who's never had a driver's license, never had a job, skipped school, never had enough money to warrant dealing with a bank, never had private insurance, real estate worries, no need for an accountant etc etc etc.

And that applies to some people. They literally DO NOT "GET IT".

"I was just here. Whyz you gotz to fingerprint me AGAIN?"

"Because part of this confirms your I.D. when we get an A.F.I.S. response, and...."

"Main, you know who I am."

And that can go on and on....

With some of these assholes you'd have to start with the clay accounting tablets in cuneiform. Zero concept of the need for "stuff" beyond immediate gratification.

-The other possiblity is that the person REFUSES to "get it", even though they fully freak-out when people get in the way of THEIR OWN admin processes. Oh, I'm sure Mrs. 34 bitches about the incompetent assholes she deals with at work.

And I'd love to see her drive.

Narcissistic bitch.

Edit: I read everything more carefully after I posted this. She wasn't "being" a bitch, as you implied. She IS a bitch.

And hey, Mr. OCD, maybe you should think about trimming your explanations before yout start freaking out about everyone else's "reading comprehension". This isn't the first time by a long shot. People are reduced to distilling the jist of your encyclopedic pointlessness....and then you get on someone's ass about missing one thing you "implied".

It's all about what the asshole who gets turfed out is going to tell 200 of his friends and loved ones, and who they're going to tell, etc. Reputation is everything. This is sort of the ideas my bosses have espoused. Also why I can be fired for wearing my uniform whilst consuming alcohol.

Not so much as in the dude's beating you up sort of abusive, but you could get pretty fuckin' hostile before you got asked to leave. It's not so much a written policy as it is how the higher ups will behave. If you're hostile/obviously doing something sneaky/whatever they're more likely to appease you when you get angry than they are to ask you to leave.

Turns out it's a very friendly possum who then, upon being spotted, runs up my tree to about waist-height, waits there, And then periodically tries to approach, then flees up the tree again.

I saw a possum once slowly, quietly creeping across a beam at a resteraunt。It was way up on the beams supporting the veranda roof and the possum was doing it's damn best ninja impression. Funny as hell.

Ours are probably the most disturbing species of suburban wildlife ever.

They have naked prehensile tails, they eat other's road-kill corpses, they get into garages and then hiss and refuse to budge. And then once you're convinced they are these slow, plodding morons, you'll see one turn on the jets and you realize they could wtfpwn you if they were inclined.

Fuck...opossums.

When cornered Opossums will hiss and show their teeth but this is just an act they are very placid.

If threat continues Opossums will “play possum” It will go into a coma like state and appear dead.
It even secretes a smell similar to the smell of a dead animal.

Opossums are immune to most diseases including Rabies

Opossums have an Opposable Thumb

Opossums are omnivorous. they will eat any dead, rotting thing in your yard.

Opossums will not attack your pets.

Opossums are awesome.

Why? What's wrong with southern racists?

Some of them, for example, prefer the Confederate Flag over the Stars 'n' Stripes.

This shows a refined sense of aesthetics: the former--due to such qualities as symmetry--is far more appealing than the latter. It goes much better on a t-shirt, the back of a jacket or on a cap.

I find it ironic you accuse me of racism when you openly admitted you don't trust blacks, mexicans or gays are much as you would white straights, and that you would be uncomfortable with your daughter marying a non-white man.
