How considerate of you

“I’m carrying a literal car battery and a customer approaches me to ask, Where’s the soap?” reads the text overlay of her video.

The user revealed in another similar video that customers sometimes approach her while she is working to ask her to put items back for them. “Like what a baby you are I would be embarrassed,” she captioned the video.

Several users mocked the TikTok to complain. “Me when I have to do the job that I am [paid] before,” someone wrote.

“Can’t you talk while holding something?” asked another.

One user accused Walmart employees of “always hiding” when customers need help locating an item, stating that they always ask the first employee they see. “So not true,” the TikToker responded.

Another Walmart employee responded, “Can’t you read the signs or use the shopping app?” We are busy with our work, not with ‘constipation’.”

Other Walmart employees defended her video and shared similar experiences with customers. “The worst part is when you’re carrying a 20-foot ladder and they ask you to show them where something is,” said user Roxy (@rocksea22).

“Asking to put a glass item on hold while holding 30 pounds of clothing,” wrote user Jas (@jasmineisashrub1).

“Once I was taking out a huge bag of trash and a lady stopped me and forced me to open it so she could dump her trash in,” revealed user Morgan (@morganmcn).

“I’m laughing so hard this is so real,” the creator replied.

The Daily Dot reached out to the TikToker via TikTok comments.
