Here what I'd have done if I was in Ken's position, which will never happen since I have common sense and a degree of compassion. I would have taken the puppy from my employee gently, nicely asked her to was her hands before touching merchandise, gotten a box from the stockroom, placed said puppy comfortably in it, and called animal rescue. Puppy's like small places. Puppy would be inside where it's warm and safe, and the damned potato chips and bon bons would be save from all of the dog germs.www.thisoldtoy.com

There are about 20 different ways to help an animal and keep your job intact.  Just because some fool decided standing at the checkout with a ratty mutt was a good idea doesn't mean I need to care about her employment status.


Please list them.  Difficulty: The "savior" is on-the-job at Walmart at the time.

With some people everything's got to be about them. She must be the "I saw in your ad this tv was $100! Why isn't it?"-type who can't specify. You'd better know what they meant that first time or else you're making everything too difficult for them.

kwame: Vegan Meat Popsicle: Which is why I'm still curious why you decided to pee your little pants in fear about the skeery dirty puppy that's going to poison your food.

I don't know where you got that.  What's curious is your decision twice to talk about pants wetting.  Is that a thing with you?

Vegan Meat Popsicle: No, he's not.

Here's the point, you're missing, superstar.  There are still health regulations whether an internet idiot thinks stray unvaccinated animals are a health risk or not.  There are still customers to be concerned about with an animal that can bite.  There are even employees to be concerned about.  If you got your ass off your shoulders long enough to stop thinking about your imaginary scenario of a poor doe-eyed Disney puppy who just needs some warmth and love, you'd realize it's a little more complicated than that.

Walmart keeps deleting links to the article on Facebook, and commenting on other posts that vaguely mention it, that the employee was not fired and the dog is safe. That's all they'll say.

I don't agree with Kwame's point here either, and neither do alot of us, but you're really not helping. You're just making those of us who do have compassion for the lady and dog look bad by being a douchesicle.

I was sponsored for a month earlier this year. The very first TFD thread I looked at was a torch and pitchfork scene right out of an old movie. For a group of people who are frequently alleged to be so much friendlier than liters, this was eye opening. Truly ugly behavior. As jerky as the trolls can be, you guys were worse. Much worse. One member in particular stood out as a vicious asshat, and convinced me on the spot that I had no desire whatsoever to become a TotalFarker. Would you like three guesses as to that was, kwame?

You obviously work in retail. Last night I had a woman who complained because her coupon never printed after she bought her merchandise.
"Ma'am, you didn't buy the merchandise that was part of the offer."
"The hell I din't. It says buy this brand I get that $5"
"No, it says buy the select merchandise and get $5 back"
"No it don't. Not on the ad, not on the signs"

it's examiner.com.  the real journalists wrote the story elsewhere. the examiner.com writer just stole the story and rewrote it (or had someone else rewrite it), and sits back to reap the page-click revenue.

You know, as a former ASM for Walmart, allow me to offer some insight.  I didn't grow up hating the job, until the very end. And I'm not a bad person either, I'm going leaps and bounds with my current employer. The problem with Walmart is the good ol' boy mentality that runs in the chain.  You have two methods of advancement in the company: be a raging asshole or a minority. Seriously. I saw the most terrible of people advanced because they were either a woman or a minority just to fill a "non-existent" quota. The other side of that coin was managers who were advanced because they got results, no matter what they did in the store or how their people were treated to get to that point. I didn't see the end result until the last 6-8 months, after 9 years of work. I worked my way up from being a part time hourly person up to where I ended. And I refused to work under someone who gives out a list of 100 things, you complete 97% of it by staying over 1/3 of your scheduled time, then he has the balls to call you at home over the 3 things and ask questions like "don't you feel your job is important? don't you think you should get tasks done I assign to you?"  FARK. THAT.

Haha, it's sad that it's always the same people. I used to work retail a few years back. So long as you're dealing with a customer in some capacity you run into this sort of thing though.
The best are people who reference a TV ad they say that's either regionally directed (and not your region) or aired 6 months - 5 years ago and they just remembered it. I take pity on anyone who works in fast food having to regularly explain that your cable/satellite TV receives channels that are only "local" for a select group and odds are if you live in London, Ontario and were watching Atlanta's Peachtree TV their Subway or BK or whatever has a different deal than your nearest one.
