I was entering the store today and an employee began to scream and berate me. Telling me I was not going to enter the store without a mask.
I am an old woman who chooses not to watch the news and so was not aware of the fact that the city had passed a ruling about them. I asked for a mask not seeing them around and the woman still screaming said I needed to go get one and I said I can't enter the store to get one because I don't have one. Yet I have to have one to enter the store what a catch 22. She, still yelling said "go home and get a scarf or bandana" At that I told her that since I am not a professional thief I do not find it necessary to carry a large amount of mask material at my home.
She screamed "You have to have something" I said no because I have COPD and can't breathe with something over my face I am lucky to breathe without. All this time people are entering leaving the store watching this young lady screaming at me. I have seldom in my years ever felt so berated and humiliated.
If it is the store policy that you have to have one the least they could do is have them at the door. I have left the number of people who shop at walmart and will not return
User's recommendation: Think twice before going to a store that treats their constant shoppers like trash.
Preferred solution: Apology.
