I ALWAYS go back to Wal-Mart.....

I decided to run into Wal-Mart this morning after Hayleigh's checkup to grab some paper towels. I remembered that H still had some money left over from Christmas so why not spend it? Dakoda and H had played with some Play-Doh at a playdate a couple weeks ago so we went 'whole hog' and purchased a whole bunch!!
D also wanted to go outside and look at the 'fwoers' so we ended up buying a couple of mums. Of course they had just been watered so naturally they were dripping. I set them on the bottom of the cart and didn't think anymore of them.

We finally made it to the checkout line. I put the 'fwoers' on the belt and the rest of our purchases. When it was my turn, the cashier didn't ask, "Did you find everything okay?" or "How are you doing today?" NO, she whispered, "Nothing like putting the dirty plants where the food goes!"
I wanted to say: Really? Cause where do you think most of our food comes from???? I'd rather my BOXED food be sitting in some wet potting soil then soaking in blood from a package of hamberger!!!! Wouldn't you????
But I didn't...... I just grabbed my flowers off the spinny thing and put them back in my cart. While she hatefully grabbed some paper towels from the next checker and wiped it up.
After that little incident she asked me how I was doing like nothing had happened!!!

I guess this is why I have my blog I don't bite a real persons head off.....I just talk about them here.........

2 What's On Your Mind:

Did they have the question at the check out thing "was your cashier friendly?" I have been known to check "no". How rude!

I have this same love/hate relationship with Walmart. Seriously....where do they find some of these people. One late night I had run into one by myself. The checker was going on and on and on about how the darker skin population was using up all the welfare for the white folks. I almost lost it, seeing how my beautiful children are African American. Ya, I had to call the store manager and leave a message about that one. I had completely forgotten about that until I read your post.
