“Hello, I’d like to order a birthday cake? Yes, on the top, just write, ‘Best Wishes Suzanne.’ Underneath that, ‘we will miss you.’ I’ll pick it up tomorrow. Thanks!”

Note to self: WalMart bakers are very literal.

    “Here at WalMart, we’re all about quantity – not quality!”

    I went to WalMart for new sunglasses. Use prescription glasses and needed a set that would be good outside when mountain biking.

    Me: I’d like these glasses as sunglasses
    Wal-mart associate: begins gathering info, what color lenses size etc. (we easily spend 20 minutes on this… resuming the conversation near the end)
    Wal-mart associate: Do you want safety glass?
    Me: Sure, why not?
    Associate: OK
    – minutes later transaction is completed and glasses are ordered.

    – week later I stop in to pick up glasses, open the case and out come a set of clear safety glasses.

    Me: Excuse me I think there’s been a mistake – I was getting sunglasses.
    Associate: one moment… I see here you asked for safety glass.
    Me: It was offered, I said sure, why not?
    Associate: But safety glasses can’t be tinted they only come with clear lenses.
    Me: Remember when we did the whole discussion on me getting sunglasses and lense color and coating and all that stuff?
    Associate: Yes but then you said OK to safety glasses.
    Me: I wanted sunglasses…

    Glasses were reordered with tinted lenses.

  3. That’s so sweet. I like the simple design and the flower icing.
