I want to make a complaint

It never ceases to amaze me the things that people are willing to complain about.

Take Sunday. It was like a scene from that movie with Adam Sandler and the kid. This woman comes up and she is steaming. She wants to complain. And not to us.

We call the supervisor over. I don't know if the deli got her upset (one woman complained that a girl in the deli "took too long to wash her hands" one day) or if a cashier bagged her stuff wrong. Whatever.

Do you know what this woman's complaint was?

She was in such a hurry to get her shopping done that she didn't have time to stop and get her little precious baby of a son a sausage biscuit at McDonald's when she came in.

Then, by the time she checked out and went to McDonald's, they were no longer serving breakfast, only lunch.

She was SO UPSET that she was never coming back to Wal-Mart again.

Umm. We never got the logic of all of this.

You drove to Wal-Mart. You passed McDonald's on the way inside. You ignored the kid when it said it wanted a sausage biscuit. You shopped for an hour. Then you blame Wal-Mart because McDonald's has to certain hours when they serve certain foods? And instead of complaining to the manager of McDonald's and threatening to stop patronizing THEIR business, you threaten to never darken OUR door again?

What's the common thread here? YOU need to take responsibility for YOUR own stupidity woman? It is common knowledge that McDonald's quit's serving breakfast at 10:30 a.m. God, Buddha, Shiva, Kali, Baal and a host of other deities have no pity on you!

You know what I say? Good riddance to bad rubbish!

For the win.

Doesn't Wal-Mart let you punch one customer per month right in the throat? They should.

well i guess that's some much-needed improvement of the wallmart gene-pool.

I was told to check you out by Lindsay at Mt Splatter Painted Life because you were funny. I had no idea how funny you actually are. Awesome site and great posts everytime. I work in a call center and can so relate with the stupid people...before that I was a waitress. AHHHH! Keep up the great work, I am a fan for life!

I think the ability to punch one customer a month could be a great incentive scheme.

David and Drew stole my comments! Seriously, the ignorance of people never ceases to amaze me.

She probably would have killed that kid by taking him to McDonald's anyway...just one of those things has 410 calories, not counting the hash brown, "egg," cheese, etc.
