So after landing my new job as a Wal-Mart greeter, a good find for many retirees,
I lasted less than a day…...
About two hours into my first day on the job a very loud, unattractive, mean-acting
woman walked into the store with her two kids, yelling obscenities at them all the
way through the entrance.

As I had been instructed, I said pleasantly, ‘Good morning and welcome to Wal-Mart.
Nice children you have there. Are they twins?’ The ugly woman stopped yelling long
enough to say, ‘Hell no, they ain’t twins. The oldest one’s 9, and the other one’s 7.
Why the hell would you think they’re twins? Are you blind, or just stupid?’

So I replied, ‘I’m neither blind nor stupid, Ma’am, I just couldn’t believe someone
slept with you twice.

Have a good day and thank you for shopping at Wal-Mart.’
My supervisor said I probably wasn’t cut out for this line of work.

Gene,
Sorry about the job loss. I would have done the same. It’s about time we stopped pandering to these nasty people.
You can bet it was 2 different people who slept with her and both were drunk.

Here in Arkansas we got a bunch of rednecks that act the same way. No-shoes, overall wearing toothless wonders, that act like they had no rasing at all. Makes you wonder why you have to go to WalMart to begin with, anyway. These people are rude, crude, and uncouth, and I hate it everytime we have to go. Always a loudmouth in the crowd hollering at kids, husband, wife, etc. It may be a joke—but ohh so true !!!

Gene,
It is a great story but you should have put in quotes because I’m sure it is not original from you. It has been emailed to me by several people over the past year. The origninal source is probably impossible to trace.
