Well, they got more than milk, eggs, bread, and toilet paper. It was nonstop today. People were grouchy because they had to wait in lines. Hey, what do you expect the last Friday before Chrismas and this big storm coming. We had every register going. Management was even up running register most of the day.

I agree with you retail employee. People are just idiots. You would think it was the end of the world.

I always have stuff in case of bad weather, but I did check to make sure I had milk, and cookie dough (a snow necessity) for today. The lines were long, but ppl let me out into traffic, I did the same, and I talked to several ppl I wouldn't have normally spoken to, as we were waiting in line. Overall, it was a pleasant experience. Expect it, be prepared to wait, and have a good attitude. noone wants to deal with grouchy, nasty ppl. Those folks should just stay home! Good job to the many cashiers out there who do their job this time of year with kind words, and a smile!

I was at Walmart yesterday (Friday), and people were very nice to me, I was looking for a couple things I could not find, and the employees helped me, and people let me out in traffic. In fact I think considering the economy and how rotten things are right now, I think people are much more pleasant this year as opposed to other years when things were not bad with the economy. I think this year was much more fun to shop and people are being very nice. Just remember the "Golden Rule" do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
