Have you experienced any "retail rudeness" yet this season?

My husband and son and I went to Walmart this morning. The lot is packed. This car ahead of us almost passes a car about to pull out and starts to back up towards us. As if we are going to start a chain reaction collision by backing up into the car BEHIND us! The one car pulls out,and instead of pulling forward into the spot,he stops to chat with someone,a friend I assume,who came up to talk! Meanwhile there are 4 cars behind us waiting to go! I was THIS close to just laying on the horn! Geez!

  • ALOT actually. I work at a restaurant in a shopping center.. getting to work is hard. I get in almost 3 accidents a day just trying to drive in because of traffic and idiots. Then last night I went to walmart to shop for my son. This lady had her cart all in the aisle and was just standing there. I stop and politely let the person across from me go (since there was room for only one person to get across) after she gets across this lady starts backing up into the aisle not looking where she's going, yelling at someone who works there a few aisles down. I wait another minute then get annoyed and politely say "Excuse me." and try to go around her. The witch backs up more, cutting me off, and says with an additude "I'm turning around SWEETIE" I about smacked my cart into her just for being rude.

  • I was half way out of my parking space at Target and this lady came barreling around the corner and starts yelling at me out her window because I won't pull back into my parking space to let her by. Uhhhh, last I checked, and it wasn't that long ago, backing out has the right of way, and no one was there when I backed out.

  • No, but a manager was supposed to do a price check on a wii accessory which happened to be the last one on the shelf and there was no price tag. He left the item at one of the cash register stations and was no where to be found. That wasn't cool, but I was in a good mood so I let it roll.
