There are times when people are who have obviously never heard the word "NO" in their lives simply lose their minds when they encounter that expression in Wal-Mart.
In their version of their entitled existence, deigning to shop at the Wal-Mart means we should be grateful for the shekels they throw at us as they parade in and out the doors wearing the trappings of upper-middle-class suburbia - namely khakis, Liz Claiborne for her, Ralph Lauren for him, knockoff designer handbags & sunglasses and a major attitude. Seriously, go to Target.
Wal-Mart wants to attract more "upscale" shoppers, but fails to realize that people with money are accustomed to paying for service - and expect it in a retail environment. Service is one thing you can't find at a Wal-Mart.
Guess what? If you don't have an ID, you're still not writing a check here.
I actually heard a woman scream this phrase at a manager: "I don't know why I need ID. I own a business. You can come outside and see my name on the side of my car."
She hollered, yelled, screamed and kicked up a fuss for 45 minutes. She called her husband, her daughter and probably 1-800-WALMART before pulling out a credit card and paying for a vacuum cleaner and some household items.
Maybe I should put "Bill Gates" on the side of my car and start writing checks for a couple million. It's the same logic ....
