Did you really just say that you got irritated with an elderly woman after 5 minutes? Wow....how patient of you. Especially since you can not even be bothered with actually having the same last name on all of your ID's. Nice.

It is as if having an ornery disposition is a prerequisite for employment. Even when I tell the cashier, 'Hello. How are you today?' they will usually ignore me. Or when we're done checking out I'll say something like, 'Thanks I appreciate it,' only to maybe get a 'Yeah,' in reply. The customer horror stories are a mile long so I won't even bother typing. lol
It's like alien pod people- they're so miserable to the point it actually makes me feel sorry for them. In stark contrast to our local grocery store. Another alien pod people feel but the exact opposite- everyone is SO FREAKING NICE and helpful. I've never seen anything like it. It's like smiles are plastered on their faces, some wear dress shirts and ties, a carryout at every lane, all lanes open, the store is so clean, local fresh produce, etc. I love HEB.
Walmart just has a dirty, oppressive, soul-sucking feel to it. On one hand it is teeth-grinding frustrating dealing with their 'I don't give a hoot' employees and on the other I just feel bad for anyone who is so damn depressed and grouchy all the time!
My first job was working for my dad at his restaurant and I had to deal with some TOTAL ARSEHOLES as customers. It really can chip away at your psyche after a while. So I do have some sympathy. But as a customer, it is frustrating.
$35 bucks and I got to pick the sizes so I saved about $60 bucks
