Hi ya'll. Now, raise your hand if you know what a tea pitcher looks like. Or maybe you use it as a water pitcher. Or a lemonade pitcher. Anyway. Wal-Mart sells a $3.48 plastic version with a little blue hinged closure on top that snaps over the spout. It's not the most secure thing.
OK. So this woman comes up Sunday morning with a tea pitcher, sans toggle closure.
Her story is just a perfect example of why Wal-Mart is never going to be able to "upscale." Chiefly, their customers and a lot of their employees are as dumb as rocks.
She tells me she bought the pitcher and when she was checking out, she noticed the little blue toggle lid for the pour spout in the buggy. Even after seeing about 400 of the pitchers (complete with lids) over in housewares, she DID NOT REALIZE said lid went with said pitcher and gave it to the cashier and told the girl she didn't want whatever this was.
Ooooookaaaay. She comes back in today realizing her mistake. She doesn't like the pitcher anyway because it doesn't hold enough of whatever for her grandkids. DON'T DRINK THE KOOL-AID!
She tells me the whole story and ends up "The little thing, it is out there on one of the cashier stands. You just need to go get it and you can sell this."
I look at the date on her receipt.
Two weeks ago. We got employees that don't last two weeks!
