Walmart - Being Carded For Alcohol
AUSTIN, TEXAS -- Two times in the past week I have been to the Walmart Supercenter on Lake Creek Pkwy here in Austin. I spend A LOT of money at Walmart in general. I have a friend who gives me rides when I have to go get groceries. He buys his own stuff while he's there which includes his beer along with other things he may pick up. My stuff is SEPARATED from his, but it hasn't mattered these last 2 times I've been in the store.....I STILL GET CARDED FOR SOMETHING THAT I'M NOT EVEN FREAKING 'PURCHASING'!
I am PISSED about this "new" thing they've decided to pull with the customers! Now...I understand that people have to be carded who purchase alcohol, and I am all for it. I have no problem showing my ID when needed since I'm 36 years old, BUT I DON'T APPRECIATE IT WHEN I'M NOT A PART OF IT!!! I DO NOT DRINK!!! All this is causing is irritation, frusteration (since there's ALREADY a BAG BAN), and a feud between customer and cashier! I have cashier experience, so I know what it's like to be put in the position of an angry customer. I am sorry for the cashier's that I am now that customer, and hope they understand it's nothing personal to THEM.
So, I am apologizing ahead of time, but this is an outrage! I am giving this review a 3 star just from all the inconveniences that has take place since the Bag Ban went into effect a couple months ago. It use to be a 5 star for me, but not anymore!
