here in anchorage alaska, there are two walmart stores. there are few choices locally to purchase needs and wants.
from the moment you walk into the store you are usually greeted by some seriously elderly person that asks if you need a cart... i am afraid to say yes for she might hurt herself trying to get one unstuck for you. if you need help finding something in a store or need to be checked out, forget it if you dont speak whatever language it is. once i blurted out a derogatory comment, but there was no reaction.
the two girls that were ringing up my merchandise couldnt understand "where are the cold sodas", all they did was smile and said something like yes. not only is it rude (we speak english in america and it is accepted world wide as a primary form of communication. secondly it is an inconvenience to not be understood. thirdly, if they could speak english and tell me where something is, i would buy it.
i dont hang out in walmart because i am bored.
i go there because i need something specific and everyone else is out. walmart needs to get onboard become an equal employer and hire some english speaking employees.
