The idiot lady in the Garden Center wouldn't sell a face protector and pellets for airsoft to our son. Okay, fine. THEN SHE REFUSED TO SELL IT TO ME OR MY WIFE She thinks It's illegal - Said it'd be a 3rd party sale. She doesn't know what the hell she is talking about, and now my son is late for an airsoft game with friends (Supervised by adults, BTW).
This is so typical of the Nanny State; mentality - people who know nothing want to tell others what they can and cannot do. If I want to allow my son to play airsoft, that is none of the sales clerk's business.
If I'd had more time I would have called for a manager, but we were trying to get what he needed at the last minute.
I wonder if she feels really smart now that my son may have to use safety glasses from my workshop instead of a full face protector. This is what happens when small minded people are given too much authority - they think they know how everyone should run their lives. It's time for Walmart to train employees and make sure they know that parents can buy airsoft, paintball, and even actual firearms ammo for their kids to use under proper supervision - and that parents have a right to raise their own children.
Great store if you want to buy cheap stuff fast, but don't expect excellent service out of minimum wage employees. Also the pharmacy is not that great, even though it's not as bad as Rite Aid's. Customer service puts you through a ton of trouble to get your medicine!
I find Walmart to be a very efficient business where I can get almost anything I want. In fact, when I don't shop Walmart, I always later find that things I have bought in a hurry elsewhere, I could have gotten cheaper at Walmart. Further, I have found that Walmart stands behind their products with their easy exchange or refund policies. Although I don't like the fact that they give credit on returns without a receipt (I never ever keep mine); I still thing that it is a great place to shop. The employees, for the most part, are courteous, knowledgeable and they appear to be very contented with their jobs. This is why I spend most of my shopping time at the Federal Way Walmart Supercenter.
