On my birthday my boyfriend and I went out and decided that after dinner we wanted to go out and let me pick out my own birthday present. I had my heart set on a specific piece of jewelry and after hours of searching, we found nothing in our price range. As a last resort we went to Walmart (not exactly the best place to find jewelry but it shouldn't matter where it comes from as long as I like it), and I found just what I wanted at a great price.
Us and another customer stood at the jewelry counter for literally ten minutes waiting for someone to come over. After about another five minutes my boyfriend went over to customer service and had someone paged over. ANOTHER five minutes later this woman comes sulking over and goes to help the woman that was waiting after we had been there longer. What made the situation awful was every question this woman had for the Walmart employee was answered with a rude, impatient answer such as, "I don't know" and "Don't ask me I don't usually work in this department." After a bit the customer got testy and said that she was being a bit rude the employee replied, "Yeah well I don't usually work in this department you see I was on MY BREAK and YOU called me over. I work in OTHER departments as well you can't expect me to just come over here."
When it came to helping us, she was awful. I asked to try on a ring before looking at the necklace I had my eye on and before even getting a ring size from me she basically told me no, that all rings come in one size and I wouldn't be able to find one that fit. We were so annoyed we just grabbed the necklace and left. We should have made a complaint but time was limited. I just think that if you are that unhappy and miserable with your job that you can't force yourself to be polite to people, you probably shouldn't work there anymore.
