Put a Dora the Explorer doll on the ground and wait for someone to come by and pick it up then jump out and yell, swiper no swiping swiper no swiping swiper no swiping.

Put a sticker on a condom box that says please try here for free.

Turn around to the person behind you and yell really loud, "Will you please stop following me?"

Place a walkie talkie in one of the racks and wait for an unsuspecting person to come along and pick up an item. In a cool whisper through the walkie talkie say, "That is the wrong size."


Go to the subway in the walmart get a sub and a refillable drink. Get a cart head over to the furniture department and grab a gaming chair. Take it over to the electronics section and sit down in front of your fave game station and start playing. Eventually an employee will walk up to you and tell you that you can't do that. When they do, hand them your cup and ask for a refill. The looks you will get ARE worth it!! :D

Have fun at your local walmart driving them a little nuts and don't forget to thank them for their roll back prices.

There's a joke over in the Joke Thread...dunno if it was Walmart or any store. Something about some old retired buck, as I recall, involved ketchup (and stuff)...the "wet spot" sign, so forth so on. As you pass people you get their attention and point back to where you've been, point to where they're headed, and warn them, "Watch out for the wet spot!"

Seriously, has anyone here ever seen an individual like this at your local Walmart? I wonder sometimes if these people are actually real. I've seen some different looking people in my time, but none to this extent.
I had worked at Wall Mart for 2 years, and yes “These people are actually real”; and yes I have had to deal with people doing every single thing on GNTLGNT list repeatedly.

Only 3 of those things are actually irritating enough to make me mad

Follow people through the aisles, staying about 5 feet behind them. Do this until they leave the store.
(Nobody wants or likes to feel like they are about to be prison shanked)


Take off your shoes and tell them you want to return it and when they say you didn't buy it there say, "Hm... I thought the customer was always right!"
(Customer is hardly ever right, and usually very wrong)

Move "Caution: Wet Floor" signs to carpeted areas.
(if the spot you moved the sign from was still wet; because then half a dozen customers would walk up to every employee they see and threaten to sue – threatening deaf ears unless you threaten corporate; no in store employee can do anything about people trying to sue Wall-Mart. More than likely any legal case you have is against the corporation and no employee would be personally affected by it, not that you would gain much if you sued a minim waged part time employee of Wall Mart)

This is not on GNTLGT list, but it’s the most ridiculous thing to say to an employee at Wall Mart.
If I didn’t give you what you want and you demand to speak to management and insist you’re going to get me fired.

1. 96% of the time management agrees with me (because you asked me to do something against store policy, so they are not going to support or help you with what I refused you)
2. Customer you do not have the authority to fire an employee
3. Even if you are able to get a Wall-Mart employee fired, do you think they will consider it a big loss to get fired from Wall Mart
