The date was Dec.24,2007 and my wife was have contractions off and on as to be ready to deliver early so I was worried because we had not purchased a car seat yet and we had to have one if she had the baby to bring her home.
My 15 year old daughter and I went to Walmart she (my daughter) needed a few things as well as all teen girls do. I went to the baby section she later (10 min)met me there.I had been trying to figure out the car seats like which price went to which and what colors were available and styles etc
We found the car seat we really liked however there were two of them both out of the boxes and they were GREEN the ones under them in boxes were blue we could tell because both other boxes of blue seats were open
Well my daughter says "Look Dad why not just put a green one in the box and put a blue one on the shelf so there will be a blue and a green on display and two blue and 1 green for sale in boxes.
I know Walmart having 8 girls I had shopped there alot (ALOT) if I had went to the register without a box it would have been a mess with price checks and all
I looked at the prices of the last three stickers on the shelf they were 129.96 129.98 so i tried to find a employee after 15 min no avail I took my daughters advice and we proceeded to the checkout
When we got there there were two people at the register one picked the box up and used the hand scanner to scan it the other said "hold on thats not the right seat for that box " the other guy looked and said"well the color is diffrent but it seems to be *&^%$#@ and she sut him up didnt even let hm say another word past (it seems to be )
She the (asset control???)call me to the side and said I was on camera SWITCHING BOXES!!! I then exclaimed I did not switch boxes I switched a blue safety 1st seat for a green safety1st seat because there were no green ones in boxes and thats the color I needed to match my wifes green expedition She then called me a liar and said they were nothing alike I then asked her to walk to the baby dept with me When we got there we were aproached by another asset control?? guy and I showed her by sitting the car seats side by side that all that was diffrent was the clor she snatched the car seat off the floor slung it up on the metal rack shelving and said to me in a loud and rude voice "Look you white hippy mf you are getting on my nerves you need to get your a!! out this store before I get the cops in my office to carry you out You aint buying nothing at this store>" I was so stunned and shell shocked I hadnt noticed my daughter had stepped up she was heading straight for the asset control??? who was cursing me out I jumped over and stopped her and left the store quickly before my daughter could get in trouble.
When we got outside I got jessica (my daughter )in the truck and called the store with my cell phone and asked for the manager They said she was out and would be till the 28th of december They passed me on to the acting manager and I explained what had just happened and asked him to come outside and speak with me he agreed and never showed we ended up leaving after another 30 min waiting I will never shop Walmart again in fact I am trying to get Fox 21 to do News piece on it now
