Trip to Walmart - What happened to people's manners?!

I just got back from a trip to Walmart X( I get stressed just thinking about going to this place. We drove around for about 15 minutes before we were able to find a handicap spot not even close to the store X( X( Now my irritation level is increasing. I went with my dad who is in a wheelchair and can't walk so I have to help him along with dealing with my own back pain issues. I can not beleive how RUDE people are ~X( It took my father and I longer than other's liked to cross the rode so some jack @ss drove right out in front of us :W I wish I had something to throw at this jerk! image:)" alt=">:)" height="20" /> I can't beleive all the people who are impatient and couldn't wait for my dad to manuever around in his wheelchair so they give us dirty looks, cut in front of us and are just obnoxious. By looking at me you wouldn't know how much pain I am in because I don't have a cane or wheelchair but it is obvious that my dad needed some common courtesy. Then at the check out line, the lady seemed as if she was being held against her will to do this job and it was our fault. Where did the customer service go. It was even worse at the drive thru at Taco Bell. That lady was nasty too. X( ~X(

Tis the Season to leave your manner's in your vehicle while shopping.

Thank you for listening to me complain and have a Merry Christmas. :D :*


  • Michelle,

    That's why I do almost 98% of my holiday shopping online. Shipping and handling is worth not having to be knee deep in the "jolly" Christmas crowd. I swear, if Santa could really see these people he would poop down their chimneys.

    Sorry you were treated like that but I swear there are no manners or people who can just be courteous anymore. It's mostly the younger generation I have noticd. I love saying "and YOU have a nice day" when people are chitty with me..... and continue to smile..... jerks.

    Anyway, I'm glad you are home and no one got hurt!! LOL


  • @ out of my way!! I think I would've gotten a better response. =))

  • :) Ming, remember, never take yourself down to the level those people were on. you showed yourself to be the kinder, gentler human being you are. this is a great place to take out those "hostilities" and then go face the crowd again. 'tis the season to be jolly and that may include only you!! Happy shopping! Jenny :)
  • That really reminds me to appreciate the small town that we moved to 3 years ago. The large coastal city that we lived in for 30 years was exactly what you describe. Rude people, people working with the public that hated their job and it was your fault that they were there! It truly is nothing like that in the small town where I live now. The very first thing that I noticed was how polite the cashiers and fast food workers were. Of course my son says that is because this town is so small that these people are happy just to have a job. lol But, it really is a big difference in attitudes when you get away from the hustle and bustle. Even now during the holidays people are still just as pleasant. Maybe because the lifestyle is not so fast paced and people are not as stressed.?

  • I have lost faith in humanity this season, just because the world has gone haywire for a moment is NOT a reason to lose manners.Thats all I can say for now :W
  • I had an issue with the store here that they would hardly provide carry out. I would ask the cashier for one, and I'd get looked at like "why should you need one?" and then I would be stuck waiting 10-15 minutes until someone would begrudgingly come along. Or no one showed up at all sometimes. I called the store manager when I got home and complained. It has improved somewhat, but it's not the best. I'm sure it's crazy right now with the holidays.

    can bring out the Best in so many people and the
    Worst for so many people.
    For some the holiday season is a time for friends, families, honoring one's religious believes, and for others it is a time of misery an despair.
    We all haven't traveled the paths that people have taken to make them behave certain ways during holiday seasons, so I try to let be what will be.
    I do try to be even a bit more understand at this time of year.

    However, there are clear cut situations, where no matter if you are happy or sad it does not excuse someone from general consideration of others and common courtesy.

  • I too live in a small town where everyone knows your name, like Cheer's =)) The prices are higher but the service is so much better. It seems that since the economy has taken a crap that we could at least do the one thing that the stock market can't take away from us and that's smiling, using our manners and common courtesy. I could have the worst day in the world but I always know it's not other's faults and wouldn't take it out on people who had no control over my situation when I worked in customer service. It is nice to come on here and vent to feel better, I just hope you don't think I am a constant complainer :? I really try to be a good person.
  • that most of us can see that you are a good person. That experience would not have bothered you so much if you were not. Vent all you need to.
