    Walmart people. You know the type.

    I'm really bored waiting for football season to start. Anyone got any good People of Walmart-type stories? I have one, but it didn't happen in Walmart.

    I was out of town this weekend and during a break from my activities I went to O'Reilly auto parts in a medium-sized Iowa town which shall remain nameless to protect the innocent.

    This 400-pound woman bursts in and yells,"Y'ALL GOT A SH--ER IN HERE?"

    "Yeah, but someone's using it."

    "HOLY F--- I GOTTA SH--."

    True story.

    I'd be willing to bet that this same woman uses a motorized cart in Wal-Mart.

    Re: Walmart people. You know the type.

    I have been seeing an unusually high number of attractive females (no pics) in the Ames Walmart over the last 6 months. I keep thinking it must be some kind of covert, sting operation.

    Re: Walmart people. You know the type.

    I was taking a defective wireless router back once. I didn't have the receipt but Walmart allows you to exchange stuff like that even without a receipt. I went inside the main door to find the person who puts a sticker on it and they werent there. So I was looking around for the person and finally they came back from outside. I asked for a sticker and he said, "you trying to steal that?" I thought he was joking at first but he had a very mean serious face. I explained that I had just bought it a few days before and it already stopped working. He called in security, I was so embarrassed. I explained that I came from outside, not within the store. I said check the security camera, he wouldn't budge. I then asked to talk with a manager and I then explained the story to him. I told him to check the secruity camera to see I came from outside. He left for a few minutes, came back and apologized to me and gave me a $10 gift card for the inconvenience. The worker who stopped me was so mad because he thought for sure I had grabbed the router from the shelf and was just trying to take it back without a receipt.

I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    Re: Walmart people. You know the type.

    I was at a Wal mart in Arizona and they had to call a person that spoke English to come up and talk to me about a product. They did not have one person in the whole department that could speak English.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Walmart people. You know the type.

    I was in WalMart late one evening (like, 11pm late) on a monday or tuesday. Basically no one in the store but me and these two fellows in front of me in line. Not exactly the most up-standing of gentleman if I had to guess, they were obviously not well-off, at least. Probably, early-mid 20s. They were there for two things: baby diapers and beer. A 6 pack of some bottles of some sort, and a large-ish package of diapers. Cashier rings it up, and turns out these guys are like, $1.50 short. And they stood there...and in their minds I could see the debate. And in my head, I'm saying, "Pick the diapers. Pick the diapers. Pick the diapers. Pick the diapers."

    Lucky for me (and the $1.50 I was going to give them otherwise) they picked the diapers, and even offered to run the beer back to the back of the store. The relieved 50-ish female cashier politely offered to let them leave it at the counter, and they left. She and I shared a mutual smile of satisfaction as she rang up my few things without speaking any words, and I was on my way.
