Hear! Hear!

Some of us men routinely practice chivalry and find joy in doing so............

Wal-Mart is fun.
Walmart sells all kinds of fish, including goldfish.

She went on to tell me that if I didn't like it to go somewhere else so I did . Before I left I told her what I thought of her but I didn't hit her or anything....

Anyway just wondering if the tax return employee was rude and provoked the customer.
The first year I worked at Walmart I let Hewitt-Jackson do my taxes. It was expensive! I'd always done my own before and have ever since. There are two ladies who work at the one in my store and they are both very nice and seem to be pretty efficient. I see them working with people all day long.

No idea what provoked the incident in this case. It shouldn't have happened though.

One of the girls I worked with told me about her accountant who worked from home. I contacted her after I left that rude Walmart tax lady. The other accountant was very nice, did a good job , and was very reasonable in her fee. I was happy with her and went back again the next year.

I think part of it is the stress of filing taxes ? Maybe that was part of the angry blowup ?

Default My three points regarding that EXCELLENT video:

1) Jerry Springer seriously needs to get those two on the show for a rematch.

2) That big guy in the black boot-cut jeans/black sweatshirt/baseball cap, who was helping 'keep 'em separated' for a moment looks like he might be seriously beautiful in-the-buff. He's got the 'Hirsute Texas Redneck Look' that is so in-demand. I see a lucrative career for him, as an 'inspiration figure'. A couple of photo shoots, a solo video or two, and he's well on his way to getting Dollars-per-minute doing livecam, like this guy from the area where I grew up: https://www.facebook.com/garytaylorofficial

3) H&R Block was really trusting that hoochiemama with people's personal information? In my humble opinion, she's got "Identity Theft Risk" written all over her.

I've been using TurboTax since almost forever. Some years its bugs were very annoying and time-wasting. But never once in all those years did I get in a violent fight with it. No broken monitors, no smashed keyboards or mice, nothing but an angry glare that could kill a typical Walmart employee just from the glare.

Fortunately Turbo Tax has improved a lot, and in recent years has seemed easy and reliable. It's been so easy recently, I can hardly imagine why anyone would want to take their tax return to Walmart or anywhere, when TurboTax could do it faster, easier, cheaper, and with less aggravation.

Hmmm. Now that you mention it, I wonder if the tax people do a criminal background check before hiring their employees? Probably not. That's a very good reason to avoid them. At least at H&R Block the employees act professional and there aren't shoppers with kids strolling past the desk.

Not every Wal-Mart sells fish. This one does not.

How do you know? I've never found any Walmart that didn't sell fish. They sell small fish that are good at hiding. Maybe you just haven't found them.
