Walmart - Embarrassment
VANCOUVER -- I went into my local Walmart store to print some pictures I had taken with my phone. I used the instant print kiosk. I picked up my pictures and proceeded to pay for them. The boy behind the counter couldn't find the envelopes so he asked another associate for help. She insisted that she see my pictures. I told her that's fine but these four you can't see and that they were of an "embarrassing" nature.
I would not let her see the 4 pictures out of the 286 I printed. The associate said that she MUST see every single picture I printed. I again told her no. She then said she would not sell me my pictures. I put my money on the counter and asked her to ring me up and I will be on my way. Again, she insisted.
She looked at me with disgust and said "we don't allow nudity to be printed on our machines". I said that they aren't nude pictures but they are of me and they are for my and my fiance's eyes only. Still, she insisted on seeing them. But this time, she is screaming at me and there is a crowd gathering. She said once again that nudity isn't allowed and she refuses to sell me my pictures. I stood there for what seemed like an eternity while other shoppers judged me outloud.
The male associate was giggling. I slammed my pictures down on the counter and told her "[snip] off" and walked straight to customer service. I spoke with a manager and the woman insisted I pay for the pictures I printed. I didn't quite understand why I would have to pay for something I didn't even receive. She said that since it was a large quantity, I have to pay for it. I refused and walked out of the store. Security followed me out of the store and watched as I drove off.
