I rarely shop at Walmart but did yesterday because they have Haines v-neck ladies T-shirts for $5 AND because they have the best selection of yarn in our area. I bought 6 T-shirts and 9 skeins of yarn. Less then 20 items so I went through the express line (not so express, it took forever).
I noticed they are now selling reusable bags on a rack at the check out, hmmm.
The cashier was quite pleasant, rare for Walmart. She moved my bag aside and was going to use the plastic bag. I politely hand her my bag (that she ignored) and she got very nasty. She had scanned 2 skeins of yarn and when I gave her my bag (that she ignored) she got really huffy, shoved the yarn under her arm, kind of like she had to juggle it to keep from dropping all the heavy stuff she was being forced to put in my bag and said "this makes it so much harder". I said "I am so sorry, I know it really pisses you guys off when you have to use these bags". (I was mad). I was informed by the once pleasant cashier that they do not get paid to indulge customers. What the fuzzy??????
I asked her why they sell them if they don't want us to use them. She said they sell them to take home and use for other stuff, NOT for shopping.
If I hadn't needed the shirts or the yarn I would have walked out.
Store manager (his name is Happy) was very nice when I ranted at him, other customers looked rather uncomfortable, former polite cashier looked very uncomfortable and as for me, I will drive across town next time to buy the stupid yarn.
Just another reason I do not shop at Walmart.
