I was visiting Walmart in Portage, In on Wednesday, April 14, 2010. I got a magazine, a stick of gum, and went to the self check out. I dont carry a purse, but I had my wallet with me. After I checked out I stuck my wallet in my bag because my hands were full and the self check out associate stopped me. She mumbled something I couldnt understand, and I was like, um what? And the she said in an extremely rude tone: Open your bag. I opened it and she was like "Oh its a purse." And I was like "Yeah its a purse." I didnt get an apology. I was so irritated. I sat down at subway to read my magazine and then the more I thought about it, I was fuming. I can understand being conscious about shoplifting, but if that woman was really doing her job she would have seen that that was my wallet when I inserted my ten dollar bill in that piece of *** machine that doesn't work half the time and then put my change back in the wallet. I might have been less angry and humiliated if she had apologized!
If I wasnt such a passive person, I would have asked to speak to the manager. Although from reading the stories on here, I can't see how that could have helped.
WALMART: WAKE UP and realize that the customers are NUMBER ONE. Keep this *** up and people are going to stop shopping at your stores! You just lost a customer!
