Walmart Employee Fired 2-Hours After Being Hired Due To His Brilliant Comeback To A Customer

No one is a saint, we all try to be helpful to people, but when it seems whoever we are nice to turn out to be a rude asshole, our instincts are to lash right back. Well that was what a newly employed Walmart staff member did, and the resultant effect of his reaction was him fired from his new job.

This short story about a man who wouldn’t just sit there and be disrespected. It’s a story of how negativity no matter how small and insignificant it might be can spiral into a lot more negativity – if left unchecked.

The man narrates his story below…

So after landing my new job as a Wal-Mart greeter, I lasted less than a day. About two hours into my first day on the job, a very loud, mean-looking woman walked into the store with her two kids yelling obscenities all the way through the entrance.

The Conversation:

The Greeter:

Good Morning and welcome to Wal-Mart. Nice children you have there, are they twins?

(of course, her children were two years apart, and while they share common features, they certainly didn’t look like each other).


The 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 stupid?”.

The Greeter:

“I’m neither blind nor stupid, ma’am. I just can’t believe someone slept with you twice. Have a good day and thank you for shopping at Wal-Mart”.

The Walmart manager flew into a rage as he fired him. Well, at least he now knows that he’s not suited for the customer care service.

And by the way, that rude customer got exactly what she deserved.

  1. The customer was rude but his reply was needless and meant the woman would probably not shop there, He was hire to make people welcome so they might buy something, not to do one upmanship. He deserved to be fired. As for that woman, she’s her own reward…

  2. Having been in customer service about 40 years or so I know how hard it can be to bite your tongue. I used to take customer phone calls and once had a woman who had a son named Jarrod and I pronounced it the way it was spelled and she immediately told me in a very rude manner “THAT’S GERARD!”. I had to bite my tongue because I so badly wanted to say “Excuse me for being literate” but I didn’t and carried on.
    I loved this man’s comeback and don’t know if I could have resisted one that good if I thought of it.
