Another vent session!!

K I am so mad right now that I have to vent!! I was in Walmart today and I was walking past the shoe department. There was some water on the floor and, of course, I slipped on it. I fell right on my butt. Well right across from me there was a male employee stocking something. He looked at me and walked away. He didn't ask if I was okay, or acknowledge me in anyway. Now I know he saw what happened because he went and got some paper towels to clean it up. Now, I worked in retail for 10 years as most of you know, and our main thing was customer satisfaction. If the customer isn't happy than nobody is. Customers make a business work. If you were to see something like that you take care of the customer first. To me that was the rudest employee I have ever met. To not even ask if I was okay!! How can you do that? I know that if it was me, and I saw someone slip on something I would ask if they were okay. Not being an employee, just being a concerned person. Now the fact that he was an employee just made it worse. I don't blame Walmart, because it's not there fault that he was an inconsiderate asshole (pardon the language). I was so mad that I just bought my stuff and left. Thinking back, I should have complained, so that he could realize that what he did was wrong, but I just left. Now that I have vented to the world I feel better, thanks for listening!!!

I'm sorry Lacy. Are you okay? I hate hate hate when employees are jerks. I'll have to tell you about my Michael's experience and then another one I had at the grocery store. I have never been so mad. I did stick up for myself at Michaels though and was stinkin' proud of myself. I put that old lady right in her place! Oh ya!

You should call the store and let them know. Or hey, you could always sue. ;)

That's BS. I do work in retail, and if someone did that at one of our stores, they would get a serious reprimand or even fired.

That is totally wrong, Lacy. That employee should have made sure you were okay. I have worked in retail as well, I always made sure my customers were okay. Are you okay, though? Make sure your not hurt. I would definitely call the store and complain. I hate Walmart too. I do what I can to stay away from there, but it doesn't always happen. I would rather go to Target over Walmart anyday.
