Dear Grumpy Wal-Mart Greeter/Bag Nazi:
Once again you stopped me as I was leaving the store, not because the alarm went off, but because I had ONE item that wasn't bagged. While it is refreshing to see some work ethic and I applaud the gusto with which you do your work, could we use a little common sense here?
A) I had a buggy full of items, all of which were bagged, except for the ginormous package of 12 double rolls of toilet paper (which obviously won't fit in a bag), B) said package was carefully perched on TOP of all my bags (so you must think I'm not terribly clever) and C) it. was. toilet paper! Seriously, is this a high-value shoplifting item? Do you have a lot of theft of the Charmin?
What is it about me that makes you suspicious? The t-shirt with the bible verse on it that I was wearing? Maybe it was the RECIEPT I was holding in my hand? The sneaky way I hid said item in plain sight? Maybe it was my beady, shifty eyes?! Maybe you just take yourself WAY to seriously.
While I understand your job requires you to check unbagged items as they leave the store, I would think that would mostly apply to, say, that big-screen TV over there or maybe the digital camera. You know, items with street value. Is there a black market for toilet paper I don't know about?
Our little encounters really annoy me. Let's try not to meet under these circumstances again. M'kay?
Oh, and would you tell your fellow co-worker in the toiletry item department that I am very sorry she is so bored with her job. However, it is very frustrating when she wanders aimlessly down the center of the aisle half-heartedly perusing the deodorant while I try in vain to maneuver my buggy around her. Perhaps she could entertain herself on a lower-traffic aisle?
Thank you and have a nice day.
