I am a parent and I live in Anaheim, CA.
I went to Walmart today, Fri 10 Sep 2010, to sell some candy to help a club at a public school. A security guard came up to me. He seemed like he could have been on a substance, but I'm not sure. I felt that he was very rude. He was rambling, and stated in an aggressive tone, "if you don't leave now, the cops will come, arrest [or remove] you and you will have to pay a fine of $200. When I politely asked him if he was on drugs, he told me that was none of my business. His voice seemed a bit groggy, so I'm not sure if he was on something or not. I walked away.
I was shocked and told the store asst mgr. The manager said, "we don't allow solicitation unless you contact Benton AK for permission."
I will try to take my business elsewhere. I can't believe that it appears that Walmart doesn't want to see schools helped. Everyone in my union always tells me not to have anything to do with Walmart, and I used to not listen. However, after experiencing behavior from the guard, I now think my friends are right.
