So, you don't check your bag, or bags, before you leave the store? I don't think that's Sam's problem.

It's weird comming across this post. I actually did have several Sam Walton dreams just before and soon after his death. It was very strange! At the time there weren't any walmarts in my area.I have no idea what my connection with him was.
While I enjoy shopping at Walmart,I no longer do so. I'd rather do business elsewhere.

Ahhh, who the heck would have dreams about Sam Walton? I met the man, sat across the desk from him several times, he was as phony as a $15 bill, bible open, facing his suppliers, using their money to build his empire...the guy was a real BS expert....as for being made in America, more BS, yes, he bought the items in America, however, 90% were produced overseas.

Every time I go into Walmart I get good prices on the items I purchase, but when I return home, without fail a bag is missing. Two days ago, I bought specialty soap that doesn't test on animals, and when we returned home, the soap was missing so we had to go back to Walmart yesterday and buy the soap again.
While we were there we had to purchase other items. a package of woman's shavers. Now this morning, Easter Sunday my wife needed her shavers and of course they went missing too. I think Walmart makes so much money because the Spirit of Sam Walton is around each ad every Walmart.


Is that empty spot in my wallet proof of what you are saying?

I worked with a guy once that was a former Wal Mart manager and he claimed that it's a common practice for the checkers to do what the OP is describing. "Forgetting" to bag an item here and there. It's done so randomly that most people don't even notice or care. A few thousand "missing" bars of soap translates into an entire year's pay for some of their employees.

That's why he is a former manager.

This last post is way from the actual truth. The cashiers DO NOT forget to place the goods into the bags otherwise the register area would be clogged with GO BACKS (restocked)

Having been in the Grocery trade for 23 yrs can attest to that.

The turn tables and plastic bags cannot BE OVER FILLED otherwise a danger of things falling out and breaking....ever have to clean up a broken jar of pickles etc.....I have and it's NO fun.

What happens is the cashier has to separate many items thus 2-3 will be in one bag and the responsibility is of the customer to make sure they have all the bags in their cart before leaving the register.

Stand at the register for 4 hrs and go thru as many customers and items as they and all cashiers have too and the opin ions will be way different.
