FRANKLIN, Wis., Aug. 24 (UPI) -- A Wisconsin Walmart store threw a party to celebrate the birthday of its oldest employee, a 100-year-old woman.

Lois Speelman, who works as a greeter at the Franklin store in Milwaukee County, was the guest of honor at the store Monday during a party with cake and balloons celebrating her Wednesday birthday, WISN-TV, Milwaukee, reported Tuesday.

There was a time when the Walmart greeter was seen as a charming helpful person. When I was a kid, the Walmart greeter was genuinely happy to be working at Walmart. She was usually not an elderly person and was there to help customers with returns or provide information regarding an item in the store. She made eye contact, smiled and energetic.

Today, the Walmart greeter is some elderly person with dementia who is bored sick at her job and responds like a robot who doesn't even make eye contact. It's a turnoff and almost disturbing when I see the geriatric Walmat greeter who looks like she needs to be in a nursing home. I really wish Walmart would get rid of the greeter.
