Its Thursday night in the customer service line at an Sacramento WalMart. A LINE, I thought Thursday would be safe. I needed to exchange a Pyrex Dish. Seven groups of people are in front of me and five are being me. The fourth person in line ,consisting of a man, woman, child ) all have major attitude. You can feel their heat. Everybody in their group took turns complaining. This line is taking FOR EVER-oh my god, now they need to call somebody,shir!
The woman with her arms crossed, is doing too much! She is Miss Drama to the ninth degree. Everything she does is over the top. Every time the line moves,she grunts or she sighs. So you know there’s going to be a show!
Well, the Box is Shiny
It’s showtime, this playstation doesn’t work. I need another one, the man says. The man takes the Playstation 4 out of a green bag. He looks at the woman, where’s the receipt? In the bag she says. Nothing in the bag, then look in the box. He pull out the video game,from my vantage point it looked a bit dingy. It’s not in here.
She crosses are arms again> Looking intensely at the WalMart employee She say’s we dont need a receipt anyway cause were exchanging it!
The Wal Mart employee takes a closer look at the playstation and said, this playstation didnt come in this is box. See it looks different. WHAT DO YOU MEAN? The woman says very loudly! THIS PLAYSTATION DIDN’T COME IN THIS BOX! ( I thought she was going to leap over the counter and choke him to death) THIS IS THE BOX THAT WE HAVE! I BOUGHT THIS TWO WEEKS AGO FOR MY BOYFRIEND! WHERE IS THE MANAGER! Now everybody has attitude, the woman, her boyfriend and the child, every body looking mean and angry.
A women walks from out of the back of the customer service area and male employee are talking. The man scanned the playstation box a few times and then the women came over and scans the box. Then he entered a number in cash register. WHAT IS TAKING SO LONG, WHERE IS THE MANAGER! I DONT KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS!
With the woman screaming, everybody in the front of the store (some of the cashiers-security people) is caught up in this episode of Empire. Is someone going to get slapped murdered or what?
The male employee read from a tape in the cash register. This Sony Playstation was sold at the Long Beach Walmart on November 27, 2013. The he went on to say, WalMart scans everything they sell, before it enters the store and they they scan it after it enters the store.. (The Women, grabbed the young child hand and very quietly walked out the store, leaving her boyfriend alone as the Walmart employee was talking ) We scanned this box several times, this box didn’t come from a Walmart.
The man, now terribly alone( lets hope she didn’t drive off and leaved him) tried to save face by saying. WalMart takes your money, and don’t give you what you paid for! I’m sure not what he intended to say, but hey.
He grabbed everything and turned to leave. As he turned around everyone in line looked away. Kinda felt sorry for him.
His ride or die, walked and left him alone.
