I work at a Walmart on the west coast and I swear the custys are idiots.
I work as 2nd shift In-stock which means that as part of my job, I pull pallets out to the floor. Now typically these pallets can vary anywhere from 200 pounds to 2500 pounds, and this means that they are HARD to stop.
Custys like to stand in the middle of the aisle and EVEN though they can clearly see you coming they still refuse to move even when you say "excuse me please" 4-5 times. Then they glare at you for even DARING to ask them to move.
OR they move an inch or two. I mean COME ON my pallet is about 2 feet wide, and the aisle is 2 feet 1 inch wide. I still need you to move out of the aisle.
Then when you're walking by a department, they ambush you asking your for help even though you have NEVER worked in that department. Ok, I'll help you if I can and usually I can since I've been there for two years.
But the other day I had a DUMBA** custy.
She asks me if this stereo plugs into the wall. So I look at the display model, which is RIGHT ABOVE THE STEREO DISPLAY, and see that yes, it does plug into the wall.
She then asks if it comes with the power cord.
She then asks if she can OPEN THE F***ING BOX and check to make SURE it comes with one!
This makes me wish to do violence upon her, because she just hit a VERY personal pet peeve of mine. I tell her to ask an electronics associate to open it for her since I cannot.
I then continue to pull my pallet out to the sales floor.
A few minutes later I see her getting a totally different radio than the one she was looking at.
Man I hate custys, and the stupid will just get worse closer to the holidays.
Anyway happy holiday hell everyone.
