Oh Walmart!

Disclosure: If you make a purchase through the links posted below, I may receive a small compensation. Read the full disclosure.

So yesterday afternoon, I ventured out to Walmart to pick up a few of L’s gifts that I had ordered online at walmart.com and had shipped to the store (i.e. so I didn’t have to pay for shipping). As I was waiting in the super long (and very very slow) lines, I realized maybe I should have spent the extra few bucks to get it shipped to my house. The lady in front of me also commented to the same thing. I was thinking it sounded a bit like a scavenger hunt to find the items in the walmart backroom (it was taking them forever to find stuff) and then I heard this:

WM Employee: “So is this all your items?” (while looking at the list of stuff she ordered and the stuff he’d gotten from the back”.
Customer: “No, I am still missing a throw and a pillow”.
WM employee: (Looking through packages in front of him – none of which were bigger than a book). “It’s not one of these”?
Lady: “No”.
WM Employee: “Okay, is that a video game? I will go look in the back.”
Lady: “No, it’s a blanket and a pillow. Like for your couch.”
WM Employee: (not the least bit embarassed or really even listening). “Okay, I’ll be right back”.

And that pretty much summed up the experience. Next time, I will for sure cough up the extra money to get it delivered to my house. 😉

    Ugh. I detest Walmart. Hate, hate, hate it! I picked something up last year that I ordered online and it wasn’t that bad, but I still can’t stand it. I had the worst experience at TRU last week. I had a coupon and a gift card and the clerk simply could not figure it out. Plus the item rang up wrong. She kept telling me the wrong total, and it was so totally obvious that it was wrong and that she wasn’t paying the slightest bit of attention. Took me f-o-r-e-v-e-r and there was only one person in front of me. The manager had to intervene like 3 times. I could tell they just wanted me to stop pointing out the mistakes, but I’m not giving you more of my money than is absolutely necessary, you know? And at Best Buy a couple weeks ago – I ordered something online and went to the store to pick it up when they told me it was ready & then nobody could find it when I got there. Yeah I was thrilled to go out in the cold rain and be told I had to come back the next day. I love online shopping – WITH home delivery!!
