As a regular customer/consumer to Walmart Wallaceburg, Ontario, Canada, of up to $5,000.00 per year, I was shocked, humiliated, and embarrassed in front of other members of the community shopping at Walmart on Monday March 5, 2012 by the events that unfolded at said location.
I collected the items in my shopping cart, and heard twice an audiible of a clown's horn being played over the store's paging system, yet the speakers playing it were isolated to my isle or location, and this rose my curiosity as to why this was taking place. I then headed to the check out counter, and although the majority of my purchases at Walmart Wallaceburg are made with AMEX, VISA or Mastercard, I completed my transaction with a cash debit card payment, checked to make sure the cashier put my receipt in my Walmart grocery bag, and proceeded to the main doors (about 50 Ft.) to exit the building, just as I have done for over 13 years, oblivious to the audacious events that were about to unfold via the 'Walmart Door Greeter' of all people, not management, not store security, or loss prevention......shifting gears to details of the event.
In approaching the interior main double doors to exit, I was stopped by the door greeter who was clearly waiting to confront me by his quickness and surveillance of me leaving the register after my purchase, here's the dialog that had taken place between the Walmart door greeter employee and myself.
Walmart Door Greeter: "Can I Sign Your Receipt"
In that I found this both Odd and Accusatory, my reply was : "For What Reason"
Walmart Door Greeter: "So I Can Make Sure You Paid For Everything In Your Bag"
In thinking 'I thought so', I simply continued on my way exiting the building just as I always do, as the Walmart greater was both humiliating and embarrassing me in front of both entering and exiting customers, but he was far from finished with the humiliation and embarrassment. As I made my way past the soda machines and shopping cart foyer to the exterior main doors and finally outside, the Walmart Greeter stood with one foot inside the store and one foot outside the store, and with leaning forward in my direction both embarrassed and humiliated me a final time in front of a whole new set of patrons from within the community entering the store and yelled in my direction,....
"If You Come Back We're Calling The Police"
Appalled,and with my reputation and stature in the community now damaged by this event, I am seeking your help with this matter.
