I had a people of Walmart experience this weekend in Charleston, As for Charleston itself, we didn’t see much of it. The weather was pretty terrible Sunday. It was way too windy, cold and rainy to do anything outside. We did, however, have a most interesting adventure at Wal-Mart. Elizabeth and I decided to stop there on the way back from our coffee run, so we could grab some essentials. As we parked I was telling her why I always avoid Wal-Mart.
This trip did not disappoint. As we were checking other, we heard a commotion behind us. Two women were screaming at each other at the top of their lungs. I got the feeling that it was over a guy, but they were so hard to understand. Finally, the lady in line called out her foe for getting a fight while working. Yes, one of the combatants was a Wal-Mart employee.
Once the facts of her employment are brought up, the employee ran behind Elizabeth and to the front of the store. The employee tore of her vest and threw it before coming back for the customer. Meanwhile, she’s screaming that “she’s not employed no more.” Concurrently, the floor manager was running full board, while screaming call 911, to grab the employee before she made it back to the customer. Honestly, it was scary. The two women were completely off their rocker.
Needless to say, I’ll not be going back to Walmart anytime soon. Although to be fair, there were people begging at the entrance to Target. I’ve never seen that before. I also had a man come up to me at the hotel multiple times asking me where the mall was located. Spoiler alert, the mall was visible from the hotel parking lot. It was so weird. You would think he would have found the mall in his own after the first day. After my most recent people of Walmart experience this weekend, I won’t be stepping in that store anytime soon.
