No one is a saint, we all try to be helpful to people, but when it seems whoever we are nice to turn out to be a rude asshole, our instincts are to lash right back. Well that was what a newly employed Walmart staff member did, and the resultant effect of his reaction was him fired from his new job.
This short story about a man who wouldn’t just sit there and be disrespected. It’s a story of how negativity no matter how small and insignificant it might be can spiral into a lot more negativity – if left unchecked.
The man narrates his story below…
So after landing my new job as a Wal-Mart greeter, I lasted less than a day. About two hours into my first day on the job, a very loud, mean-looking woman walked into the store with her two kids yelling obscenities all the way through the entrance.
Good Morning and welcome to Wal-Mart. Nice children you have there, are they twins?
(of course, her children were two years apart, and while they share common features, they certainly didn’t look like each other).
The Woman stopped yelling long enough to say, “Hell no, they ain’t twins. The oldest one’s 9 and the other one’s 7. Why the hell would you think they’re twins. Are you blind or stupid?”.
“I’m neither blind nor stupid, ma’am. I just can’t believe someone slept with you twice. Have a good day and thank you for shopping at Wal-Mart”.
The Walmart manager flew into a rage as he fired him. Well, at least he now knows that he’s not suited for the customer care service.
And by the way, that rude customer got exactly what she deserved.
