Hell-Mart's Evil Employees

What is up with Hell-Mart and rude employees??? This isn't the first time I've been treated rudely by them but it is the first time I finally spoke up.

I had to go into the store to purchase a few things. I had Vince and Annabel with me, both riding in the cart, being awesome little people. We grab our things and hurry to the express checkout. I place my things on the counter and start looking around for the cashier. I see her standing near the doors, talking to another employee. I finish and stand there and wait...she finally ends her conversation and comes over. She rings it up, I pay, and off we go to the doors.

As I'm approaching the doors I see a door greeter. She's in her 40's with very long dark hair that reaches past her hips. She looks directly up at me and we make eye contact. I give a smile and she just stares back, looks me up, then down, the looks away! No smile, no 'thank you' no 'come again'. Just her hateful freaking glare.

So I did what I've always wanted to do. I turned to her and said, "no one forced you to be a door greeter, you should find another job", and I walked out.

She didn't say anything but she didn't need to. It felt so good saying that to her face. I'm so tired of paying money to be treated like crap. Maybe next time she'll see me coming and smile, or better yet maybe she'll have found another job that doesn't require her being nice to the public.
