    As if Wal-Mart's reputation weren't bad enough already:

    I love how they tried to justify their actions at the end.

    The right thing would have been accepting the couple's apology and just dropping the case :rolleyes:

    Any chance we could have some of that fertilizer to blow up Wal-Mart headquarters along with their facist regime of a company?

    Nope, wrong kind of fertilizer.

    This is just a load of **** perfect for filling up the CEOs nice new luxury vehicle, or placing a really farm fresh load in a big steaming pile in the middle of their office.

    Gonna line up on Walmart's side on this one.

    We have people bounce cheques on us, try to give us bad charge card numbers, return goods that they broke themselves, claim for warranty replacement on a 512 Mb module but send in a 128 Mb, challenge the charge card billing on purchases they made and received, hoping to get them free etc. Fortuntely, 99.95% of customers are honest.

    My point is that putting all these things straight consumes a lot of time and money for the seller. It's bad PR obviously to dispute with any customer, but sometimes I really wish we had some effective way to pursue the few bad apples who cost us hundreds of dollars.

    And remember, charges in the W** M**** B*** S*** case were dismissed -not disproven. They actually did steal the product, then said they were sorry. The City Attorney (not a judge) decided not to pursue it criminally.

    Of course, WalMart is a big, fat target to laugh at. Not so funny when its your own money getting stolen though...

    F*** Wal-Mart! (repeat over and over again, screaming).

    They are evil, oh so evil. Let's all protest by creating a manure pile at the front doors of every local Wal-Mart. :D

    Wal*Mart is the white-trash mecca of the Western world. And I find myself strangely drawn there. I don't like the idea of the place, but I do love shopping there. Sorry, mom and pop.

    Because it would have been a waste of time.

    The BS part is that they were not convicted of a crime, and yet were still able to be fined. And to fight the fine would have been more than the fine itself. Having shopped at places like this, I could see where you might forget to add in something like that, or leave heavier things on the bottom of carts and forget to tell the cashier. Plus they came back to pay the $10, then get punished for trying to fix what was clearly an honest mistake. Let the punishment fit the crime here, as it's nothing like the scenarios you mentioned. Wal-Mart overreacted and this is one of the many reasons people hate them.

    At least they made things right... eventually. Wonder how many other people just get ripped off. I'd never shop there again.

    Walmart is going to be the death of this country. Americans can only blame themselves for it.

    Huh??? I'm sure you were being facetious. "SAM'S CLUB (www.samsclub.com), a division of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., is the nation's largest warehouse chain in the United States serving small business owners and operators. The purchasing agent of choice, SAM'S CLUB provides every day low cost to more than 46 million entrepreneurs and consumers."

    I think both xsedrinam and PlaceofDis are so overcome by their hatred of Wal*Mart that they are missing the :rolleyes: ham_man included in his post.

    :rolleyes: :)

    Now, I never said any such thing. My appeal was for accuracy
    :rolleyes: You see how confusing and vague that "rolleyes" thingy makes things?
