so usually i have no issues at wal mart in greece but last night was a whole other story.
i was doing some other random shopping for stuff i needed around the house and i make it a habbit of every time i stop at wally world , gander mt, dicks etc i grab a couple boxes of ammo.
so i get my other shopping done and go to sporting goods. nobody is around. i find a box boy and ask him to have someone paged cause i need assistance in sporting goods. i hear the page over the pa.
ten min go by and nobody is around. i go find a different box boy and ask him to page again. i hear it over the pa.
another 15 min goes by and nobody to be seen. so i walk up to the front registers and say i have been waiting at sporting goods and nobody has shown up they say sorry and page one more time.
so a total of 35 min goes by of me waiting patiently at sporting goods.
in that time i noticed they had a sign posted that to buy handgun ammo you have to be 21 and have a valid drivers lisence. to buy and other ammo you have to be at least 18 with a valid drivers lisence.
so i am getting fed up and start being immature. i start talking really loud. "accidentally" knocking stuff off shelves and then finally i take out my cell phone and search for wally worlds phone number on google and call the store. this was the conversation:
"hello, and thank you for calling greece walmart, how can i help you?"
"yes, i am actually in your store right now and i have been waiting in sporting goods for 45 min, and i have heard people being paged to come help me but still nobody around"
"umm umm umm hang on one moment sir"
over the pa i hear " can a mananger please pick up line two"
i listened to two songs on hold and i hear over the pa again " can a manager please pick up line two"
finally the same lady picks up the phone and says " sir im so sorry i will have someone come help you immediately" doesnt wait for a response and then hung up.
i hear over the pa " jon, please report to sporting goods, a customer has been waiting for 45 min"
another 5 min goes by and i walk up to the customer service desk and explain to them what just happened and that i will wait here so someone can fallow me back to sporting goods.
finally a guy comes up and walks back with me, i tell him which ammo i want and he has no idea what im talking about so i say "the white box with the pretty red letters on it" he then trys to ring me out and doesnt have access to the register so he says we have to wait for someone.
i was like seriously??? cant you just walk it up to the front ??
he says yes, but first he has to see my lisence so i show him my drivers lisence. he goes no your pistol lisence. so i point out that the sign says i only need a drivers lisence. he said no its nys law i have to show a permit. i told him no he was wrong and that its wally worlds policy and since it is there policy it should be posted. i showed him my permit and he then asks me if im 21. i laughed dont you have to be 21 to have a pistol lisence?? he siad " oh yea sorry"
because of this bull**** i dont care if they are giving away free ammo , i am not going into that store ever again. i dont even know why i waited as long as i did. what ever happened to customer service??? i understand that little ol me not shopping there anymore isnt going to hurt them at all but wtf do your job people.
i feel better now lol
