I got sooo pissed off today

I swear walmart profiles the people they choose as they are leaving the store to check their receipts.

I got my stuff like everyone else walked over to a cashier to pay for my shit,I headed to the door.

They stopped me again and they hit me up for my receipt.

This time out of many times I have been stopped by the same fucking guy I couldn't find it. Emptied my bags my pockets looking for it .I told him to check with the cashier over there(pointing at him) I think I wasn't given a receipt.

They see me there at least once every week sometimes more because I dont drive and they know this because I shoot the shit with the workers there. hell I knew the guy who asked for my receipt.

All these other"normal" looking people are just walking on by sashaying out the door. I have NEVER seen joe q conservative style ever standing by the door looking for a receipt.All the times I have been there. Saw a goth lady my age with her kids, fishing out her reciept however.

The people working there know how I look.
Still they ask me every other visit for my goddamn reciept.

He let me go after he talked to the cashier.
I was irritated but not pissed..yet.

I decided to go out the side door because my bags were heavy and I was carrying a mop.
It would save me considerable distance in the heat with awkward heavy bags wrestling with a mop pole walking home.

I asked him would it be ok if I go out the side entrance,he said yeah go ahead you shouldn't have any problem.

I proceeded to walk out the side entrance and again at the door I was asked for the receipt.

I was pissed off at this point. I didnt have a damn receipt because after that exchange up front they didnt bother to give it to me. The cashier handed the reciept to the guy who was asking me for it.

I was pissed off now. I told her I dont have a damn reciept because the guy at the front door has it.

She insisted I look for it.

Opened my first bag and stopped said loudly this is bullshit.

I come in here every godamn week and you choose to check my ass for my fucking reciept like every other fucking time I come here.Why me?
Why do I always get picked for this bullshit for?

This feels an awful lot like walmart has some shitty policy of profiling certain people based on appearance.

Yeah my jacket looks scaaary but it has my fucking name on the back of it with a panther head on it for fucks sake!
Yall can read it every time I am here . Yall even complimented me on it!
This is fucking goddamn bullshit.

The lady waived me on through.

Fuck.

I walked home ranting to the empty sidewalk.

When I got home Othello noticed something was going on and jumped on the counter with that concerned look. I put down my stuff and snatched him off the counter to hug him. I so love him.

Next time they pull this shit ,the county has a law against discriminating against people for how they look,I'll tell them all about it.

Maybe I will finally get to walk out the door unmolested. Damn.🖕

Thanks for getting this far.

10. You probably can drive a car

And can't afford it.
I can't do either.

Walmart is walking distance from my apartment.

Target is too but the same things at target often cost more.

SSI does not pay much.
You are under the poverty line just because you are disabled and not considered equal to able bodied americans or "sane" ones..you get to be poor as dirt and get to watch every fucking penny like its your last one..

I do go to target for the frozen vegetables,and a few other things.

You can just walk away without saying anything or you can just tell them NO! They cannot force you to show the receipt ... They ask me now and then and I just tell them no or just ignore them, they usually reply with "have a nice day"

5. I'm pretty non-threatening and non-descript

and I've been asked to show a receipt at Walmart. It hasn't happened since before COVID however.

When I was asked, I showed the receipt and asked why they were checking. They said it was only for large unbagged items in the cart.

I'm not saying they weren't profiling you - but its possible that it depends on what they see in the cart.

19. Upthread I explained why

I have to shop there. I live on ssi,cant drive,even if I did I cannot afford a car.

Since I walk everywhere and when I shop I sometimes have heavy bags. So I want to keep carrying heavy bags at a minimum.


Being on ssi,you realize wal mart is what you can afford.

If I had more money maybe I could learn to drive, have a car,pay for the therapies that I need the state considers too expensive( like I have ptsd and the therapist I get has no trauma experince.) However I have tried to find one and they don't accept medicaid.

And maybe I wouldn't have to shop at walmart.

It kinda pisses me off when people say glibly thats why I dont shop there.

Well we all dont have that ability in this world.

I have gotten that damn comment twice.in 1 thread.

16. I carry my receipt when I head to the door.

They frequently check receipts so I just have it ready.

I’m very a unthreatening looking petite white woman, but they’ve checked mine before. Sometimes they wave me through, sometimes not. Doesn’t bother me.

They’re just doing their jobs for probably a pathetic wage, only takes a minute.

17. Yet another reason not to shop there.

If the fact that they are NOT the cheapest place to buy most things isn't a good enough reason.

None of the stores I go to do that. I haven't been inside a Walmart in about 20 years now.

Place in my vicinity.

Btw if I had more money I could drive and afford a car,and if I wasen't disabled and living below the poverty line maybe I could afford to not shop there. You think I like shopping there?

I hate walmart as much as anyone here..but life circumstances interfere ya know.

Third glib comment.

39. It is often not the cheapest place.

The rare times in recent years I've had occasion to do some price-checking, Walmart is invariably more expensive. And I constantly read stories that say the same thing.

I sympathize that you can't drive and are disabled, but if you could figure out a way to get to another store you'd be a bit better off.

18. I haven't been to Walmart in a long time

But, I have spent years shopping there. I find them well trained and helpful. If you can't find an item, they will stop whatever they are doing and lead you to it.

You gotta pick your battles. When you pay, get your receipt. Don't put it away. Keep it in your hand. Then, walk up to the door guard. Walk right up, extend your hand with the receipt, and let them look. Smile at them, talk to them, calm them.

I never came out of Walmart without a boatload of items. I was taking care of 5 adults at the time. Every blessed time I shopped I had to do this. Once or twice a week, same routine. I doubt that they are allowed to let anyone past inspection. They look at what you have in your cart, not you.

Heck, I used to get in line at the inspector, even if there were two or three people in front of me. I knew that when they saw the phenomenal amount of items in my cart, they were going to want to look. Who cared? They used to be open 24 hours, then they went to 10pm; I don't know what they are now. They were open on holidays. I used to thank the cashiers for being open for me. Made my life easier, shopping after work and odd hours.

I understand how you feel, but just make a little adjustment, and you'll be okay. It ain't you, kiddo, it's just their job. Putting food on their table.

Wamart has stuff target doesn't have and target has stuff walmart doesn't have. I get my meds at walmart. Target pissed me off because they wouldn't fill one of my meds and profiled me assuming I was an addict or something. I have been on this med for decades.

Again people profile us metal heads and it gets old .

Where the heck is this happening?

I grew up in Chicago, moved to southern Wisconsin and now live in northcentral Wisconsin and have never been asked to show my receipt.

Not at Walmart, anyway.

Sam's Club is a different story -- they're a real PITA but they do it to everyone there.

But why do I have to change my appearance to please walmart. Btw the people checking me at the door are more often black than white. Why? I dunno. Maybe they dont like metal heads. Maybe walmart corporate profiles people like punks goths and metal heads.

Wal mart is run by old christian republican rich white people..

40. I think what black people go through because of racism

And white peoples biases that have no purpose in reality hurts you and all black people.

But my post was about my experince. Stores have bigot owners but are bigots in a different way.

I was talking about my experince. I cant be someone else. I feel awkward with normal clothes and I am openly transgendered and that may play a factor in why they profile me.

I have gotten plenty of bullshit out of trans bigoted people and I wrote this thread to rant because it pissed me off.

This is no disregard to what black people go through.

35. I thought the deal was that

if it’s a “club” store (i.e. Costco or Sam’s) with a membership requirement, then they can legit ask for your receipt. But if it’s just a regular retail store with no membership requirement, then they can ask all they want, but you are under no obligation to do anything. Fry’s Electronics was notorious for this BS. They would run after me for my receipt, and I’d just sail out the door as if I hadn’t heard a thing.

With a friend a couple of times and people are not stopped by them for reciepts at all. This walmart is in a well to do neighborhood.
The walmart I walk to is down the road near hud housing. They probably discriminate poor people too. Being metal,transgender and poor they probably profile me based on that.
