    Text - I am a former Walmart employee (stuck it out for 10 years) and the silliest thing I recall a customer doing was when a very large woman in an electronic cart (the Walmart ones) rolled up to me in electronics and asked "Where are your pedometers?" ... Planning on doing a lot of walkin are ya?? On the gross side, I worked Connection Center a while (cell phones) and had a string out, skinny crack whore looking woman come in and ask me to fix her Tracphone.. and then she proceeded to pull it

    Text - We had an old man drive his car through the vestibule in the front, you know, where the greeter hands you a cart. Apparently, he was having some dementia, because he just got out and was gonna go shopping, paying no mind to the doors, windows, and soda machines he just destroyed One night on 3rd shift we caught a couple fucking on a pallet of mulch in lawn and garden. I shit you not. They weren't as alone as they thought. One of the managers kept an eye on them until the police arrived. L

    Text - This happened 2 days ago. I was getting off of my shift at 11 and heading out of the store. Walking past the registers I see a white trash mother telling her you son (1 would guess 11) to behave. Ok pretty normal. Except this family had been at our store shopping for 4 hours at this point There were 2 moms, both very morbidly obese, one missing a leg, and the kid. So Im leaving and following them out and for whatever reason the hambeast with 2 legs starts freaking the fuck out on the kid

    Text - Former Walmart employee here. Worked every department and staff position on the sales floor except for maintenance. One night while working in the toy department, I found a dirty diaper hidden behind the Hot Wheels cars. Not a wet diaper, neatly wrapped back together. An open diaper, spilling feces onto the shelf. Looks like they just flung it against the shelf, then tossed the cars on top to hide it. Called a manager over, who shrugged and said, "better you than me," and walked away. God

    Text - Ex employee, had come back from my lunch break it was 3 am. Some dude was at the customer service area (all lights turned off) He was under the water fountain trying to sleep.. He had sunglasses and torn up socks on. Apparently, he had also been crawling before I got there. And when he finally left he was yelling. A coworker said when she had been working in home lines? Some dude grabbed a bean bag chair and sat himself in the corner for 3 hours. Why she didn't say anything? Idk. But was

    Text - I had just been hired and I was still learning. This older gentleman asked me to get him a phone card. Well me being new had no idea what he kind of card he needed. So my coworker helped me out and the guy started yelling at him because he needed it now. So my coworker tells him if he's gonna be disrespectful he'll just walk to the back because he's there to help not be yelled at. So he helps with the transaction and the guy who's a bit nicer since he was stood up too asked us if we had a

    Text - I once was followed to my car by a middle aged white woman. All because at got done quickly at self-checkout before her and she had to wait for assistance. She was yelling on how this isn't fair and kept following me out of the store to the parking lot. She also cut in line right before me. :/

    Text - Probably late to the party and not all that extreme. I worked in the infants and toddlers section at the height of the roller tennis shoes fad. One night there was a brat rolling around laughing knocking all the onesies I had just tediously folded into the floor his mother yelling and chasing after him then he hits a little bump in the floor and falls right onto his face. When the mom caught up to him she smacked his ass as he is screaming bloody murder. Several onlookers applauded Also m

    Text - Saw this idiot hurl a box of blue bell ice cream sandwiches on top of the freezer coolers. I looked at her and said "Why did you do that? Now I'm gonna have to crawl up there and get them because when they melt it will run ice cream all over hell." Didn't say anything and I went to get the ladder.

    Text - Ex employee here. Someone tossed a bunch of chemicals in the garbage compactor. A chemical fire started and the fire alarm went off. Although no one could see the fire in the store, it was most certainly on fire. We started trying to evacuate and we had to argue with people to leave. One woman would not get out and eventually I yelled at her "There is a fire in the back of the building! You need to leave! NOW!"...she promptly walked off in a huff and tried to stand in line near the cash r

    Text - I was a cashier for 2 years. Dear god, people will leave anything and everything in the candy packages cause they can't be bothered to put it back or give it to the cashier. I found a rotten ham in there once. The person hid it behind all the chocolates.

    Text - Customer service, we do your thinking for you. That unspoken gem extends to "we do your reading for you" too, when customers believe if they don't read it, it doesn't apply to them, like simple things, like terms or conditions, or which door is the entry and which one way exit is the EXIT But craziest thing, attempted robbery, but at least I got to treat that guy like shit, I wish I could do it with everybody.

    Text - I had a couple come through my checkout at almost closing time...after I'd worked a 12 hr split shift...when I rung in a $25 electric toothbrush. Wife decides she doesn't want it. So I void it out Then husband says how he DOES want said $25 electric toothbrush So I put it back through. They have a huge fight over it & wife subsequently blames me. Somehow. She tells my manager... All the while her husband is telling me how sorry he is for what a "horrible cunt" his wife is being to me. Wtf

    Text - So my boss is this very pretty twenty something girl, skinny as a fucking bean pole. Came inside from a smoke break. Some guys at 3 in the morning were being jackasses and were running out the front with a 30 rack. She stepped towards them at the door and asked them to stop. They maced her. She was 2 months pregnant. What a shit show that was.

    Text - Some dipshit, and there was alcohol on his breath, came in with a limited amount of time. He asked me where something was in the apparel section, where I am unfamiliar. I helped him locate what he was looking for ,and thought that was it. he then started handing me shit, and had me follow him to other areas, basically being his personal shopper. If you work in retail, you're not allowed to say things like "hey dumbass, go get a goddamn cart". Recently, working in produce, had an old woman

    Text - Not an employee, but a few weeks ago, a man went into a nearby Walmart and tried to steal a vacuum by switching the price tag with the tag of a much cheaper model. Managers pulled him aside as he was paying for it and questioned him in the back office where the man proceeded to slit his own throat

    Text - Kids running through the store dressed as bananas. People having sex on the display furniture, a girl and a few guys getting fired because the girl was giving $5 BJ's while clocked in, shit being smeared on pegboard inside the store, drunk teen girls stripping at the front of the store after prom. That's all that I can remember

    Text - Not exactly Wal-Mart, but I did work Target as seasonal one year. We had two fist fights on black Friday. 1.) They just opened the cases in electronics and had an employee stand in the isle. Bad idea. Old lady with maybe 30 something year old man pick up a Wii, they set it down for a second to grab something else. Some jackass runs up pushes the old woman out of the way and grabs the Wi. The younger guy with the old woman jumps on the dude and a fight ensues. The would be snatcher gets fu

    Text - I was actually going into work today when this happened, around 1400. I'm walking into work and one of the managers is yelling at me to come with her outside. I'm confused because she knows I haven't clocked in but then realize I might to get tackle a mother fucker, so I oblige. We get outside and are asking this kid who looks like he might be 20 if he has a receipt. He just looks at us, (this is when I get excited about a possible tackle) then let's of the basket and says oh I don't have

    Text - Former Walmart overnight employee. Walmart was my introduction to people shitting on the floor, not once but three times during my oh so short employment there. There were also the in-store, white trash, screamy marital disputes. One other situation involved two people, one smoking a cigar, that climbed inside the tower that held inflatable balls (those retail cages held together with zip ties) and climbed to the top, refusing to come down. So much sleep deprived craziness.

    Text - Two people were caught in the women's restroom shooting up heroine. We did call the police on that one. They tried (unsuccessfully) to flush the evidence. A woman managed to open and drink an entire bottle of wine inside the store before anyone noticed. She then proceeded to vomit most of it back up. On a similar note, I've seen at least a dozen people dragging sick kids around who end up vomiting in the aisle and employees are left to clean it up. Someone took a shit in the middle of an

    Text - Ex walmart employee here. Middle aged man with his daughter, she was probably 3. She was having a hissy fit as 3 year olds tend to do. He was dragging her and then hit her so hard. If he had hit me that hard I would have bruised badly and cried, and I'm an adult woman. She imeediately is on the ground crying and his yelling alerted a manager close by. As I'm grabbing a phone my manager grabs my arm and says "don't call the police, it's not your business" and she walks up to the man with a

    Text - I Have worked at Wal-Mart for 3 months now, and I work the night shift. Around 3am I am walking back from bailing cardboard and a lady is pushing her cart with her small Yorkshire dog in the child seat. As I approach her, the dog starts to shake slightly and proceeds to shit in and through the cart. Without a trace of embarrassment or shock on her face she bends over, grabs the shit with her BARE HAND, places it casually in her purse, and just keeps on walking.

An adult took a shit in the family bath room floor A customer got upset that the $5/bag apples were out of stock, and only the $3/ bag apples were in stock, so he took the price tag for $5 off the shelf. I was brand new and didn't know what to do so I just let him do it

    Text - I once had a customer follow me into the restroom and ask about a price while i was on the toilet. The only answer given was a fart. A girl that i used to work with took her breaks out in her car. One time two male customers seriously harassed her to the point that she felt threatened so she called the cops. For doing so she got coached because she failed to notify management, so that they could make the call. Welcome to Wally world.

    Text - When I was working as a cashier, there was a woman who would literally dress up as a clown everytime she came in. I'm pretty sure she was mentally or emotionally ill because she never said a word when she came through my line, but it always creeped me out a bit. The funny thing is, the first time I saw her was at Halloween so I just thought maybe she was on her way to a kid's party

    Text - Not mine but two walmart employees I saw on Black Friday. It was mere moments after the wrapping was cut off of the shitty TVs that a fight broke out. You see, two women had each grabbed an end of one of the TVs and neither would let go. I was standing next to two employees. One turned and asked the other if they should break it up. The other contemplated for a moment before responding "naw man, I don't wanna die today". The fight ended soon after when one women threw the tv at the others
