Horrified and Embarrassed Walmart Customer Demands that Store Apologize to Her - News
51 yr old Sandy McMillin went to Walmart on Sunday to buy sour cream, chips and coffee creamer. It was a hot 90 degree temperture day, so she decided to dress very light. She said that only five minutes into her shopping trip while in the clothing aisle, a store employee told her to put on a shirt or leave, saying that her skimpy swimsuit top violated health codes.
"I was horrified," McMillin told news reporters. "I was embarrassed."
McMillin is quite overweight, and has a shaved head. She is also heavily tatooed, and has lots of body piercings as well. She walks with a cane, due to a bad leg injury. She also had a catheter on her that day, which emptied into a bag on her ankle, which was also all in view.
Here is a photo showing how she says that she was dressed that day:
Walmart spokeswoman Ashley Hardie told the press that McMillin is not telling the full story.
She said that a number of customers complained about her, and that McMillin verbally abused a number of people in the store with foul language.
Tell me, if you were this woman, would you also feel so humiliated and hurt by the Walmart staff?
On the other foot, if you were the manager of that Walmart store, what would you have done about the situation, if you had been in charge?? Would you have asked her to leave?
