You know the cute little greeters at Walmart that have to make sure that you have a receipt if you’re returning something or that you’re not walking out of the store with something you didn’t pay for? There was a 100 year old woman greeter that got a different response when she asked to see the customers receipt….
Pulled from: The Consumerist
The greeter, who clicked over into triple digits last August and who works at the store five days a week, says she was attempting to verify that the water in a customer’s cart had been paid for when things got ugly.
“That’s our job,” she said. “That’s what we’re up there in front for, to watch people going and coming.”
According to reports, the customer, a 37-year-old woman, pushed the greeter, who subsequently fell and hit her head. The greeter was taken to the hospital and the customer was arrested.
The 100-year-old, who was released from the hospital after undergoing a CAT scan, said it’s not uncommon for customers to get testy as they exit: “You get a lot of customers who are not out to hurt you, but they always give you a bad time.”
If stores are going to insist on checking receipts, is it wise to use elderly greeters for that purpose?

All we can say is WOW. CustoMonster was on the loose and the little old lady had to take the heat for that one. Totally not cool.
