I was working in a group home and my co-worker and I had taken the clients shopping for supplies and food for the house. We were in line ready to check out and I double checked their shopping list only to realize we had forgotten the toilet paper. I said I would run to the back and get the giant bundle, they could stay in line, I wouldn’t be long.

I flew to the back of the store and grabbed the huge economy size package and hoisted it onto my shoulder when a woman stopped me.

Her: “Where is (whatever product she was looking for)?”

Me: “I really don’t know, I don’t work here”
(For whatever reason, this tends to happen to me a lot. I must look like the perpetually disgruntled employee)

Her: “Yes you do, you’re lying to me! Now where is (whatever product she was looking for).?”

Me: “Lady, seriously, I don’t have a clue. I don’t work here!”

Her: “I can’t believe you’re not helping me! Go to the back and find (her needed product) right now!”

Me: (Standing in the middle of the paper product aisle with a giant package of toilet paper on my shoulder, not wearing the store’s uniform, no name tag on me) “You have got to be kidding me, I just told you I don’t work here.”

Her: (Becoming louder & more irrational) “I can’t believe you’re lying to me! I’m turning you in to the manager! I’ll get you fired! This is uncalled for! Where is your Manager?”

Me: “You go right ahead and do that, I’m sure they won’t miss me. Have a nice day”

(She proceeded to get louder and more verbally abusive while threatening me with getting fired from a place I didn’t even work at)

I practically ran to the front of the store and found my co-worker and my clients. I told them we needed to get out of there fast because some lady was going to tell my manager what a horrible Walmart employee I was and get me fired. The look of shock on their faces was priceless as they realized I had gotten myself into another predicament, then they began to laugh as we hurriedly checked out and went back home, all the while looking over our shoulders to make sure the woman wasn’t coming after me.
