I'd like to open this one up for the general public. No holds barred, rotten tomatoes welcome.
What would you like to see out of "Behind the Counter" in the next few months? And don't think I haven't noticed a slew of new Wal-Mart employee blogs out there! Welcome to the party.
I've had requests for merchandise, which I'm seriously considering and a request for a personal interview from thewritingonthewal.net. It's not that I'm not extremely flattered - it's just that I'm EXTREMELY paranoid. There was a period during the fall - right after consumerist.com linked to me - when I was sure I'd been found out and went to work every day sure that was the day I'd be fired.
I've logged about 2.5 years at the Wal-Mart now, and I can honestly say that it's starting to be a grind - not that it ever wasn't. It's the same types of evil customers day after day after day, always trying to run game and no one listening when I go "look, they're returning six things of stolen fishing line."
Do you want more stories about my encounters with crazy people? Or more about how the store works? Or doesn't work?
And I do like reading the comments.
