I have to say in general Retail as an industry sucks.
Dealing with the idiots who come into your store on a daily basis gets tiring.
I was consistently amazed by the store managers at the Home Depot I worked at. They weathered abuse by customers on a daily basis.
I remember a particular customer who came in at 9:30 pm (store closed at 10:00pm) and stood at the front service desk chatting with the associate for 25 minutes then got in one of the motorized wheel chairs and began her shopping at 9:55. At 10:30 the store manager asked her to come back the following day and she got absolutely livid. We were waiting to get her out of the store so we could start bringing in the lumber from a delivery and with the safety policies of the company we had to wait until she was out of the aisle on the backside of the lumber stacks.
Stuff like that, being called all sorts of names when you give an answer based on the manufacturers recommendations that doesn't agree with their view on how something should be installed etc.
I think that Wal-Mart is a fine company. I just can't stand dealing with people who are total Obliviots, and that is what Wal-mart caters to.
