I was in Walmart on the morning of Thursday, October 3 and was checking out. As I always do, I make a point to say "Good morning" to the cashier. This cashier ignored me. Now, this in and of itself is not a big deal. I don't expect every cashier to respond. However, the events that took place after really put things in perspective. As I always do, I lift the heavierand/or bulky items for the cashier to scan in order to save them some trouble. As I was holding a large package of paper towels, the cashier yelled loudly, in a very angry tone, "The barcode is on the bottom!" This didn't sit well with me and I was shocked. Then, I held up a 24 pack of soda for her to scan. After she scanned it, she pushed it back at me with force.
Now, this cashier and I are of two different races and, like I said before, she said nothing to me other than when she yelled at me. However, when several people walked by that were the same race as her, she had no problem speaking to them. This shocked me even more. When I walked away, I told her to have a nice day and, again, I was ignored.
I understand that these cashiers can sometimes have a stressful job or that anyone can have a bad day, but this cashier was a flat out racist ***. I called the Walmart corporate headquarters the next day and reported this incident.
