We've all been frustrated when our legitimate coupon was scrutinized and then rejected, but if there one coupon tip that I can give you?
Don't wave a gun in order to save $1!.
Sounds simple – right? It seems it was too simple for a Walmart shopper in Wakulla County, Florida.
After having her coupon bid rejected, Alday allegedly called Stockslager “a bitch and other foul names” and intentionally struck the worker with a shopping cart. As Alday was escorted out of the store, she reportedly warned Stockslager, 48, not to follow her. The Walmart worker replied that “she was going to get her vehicle license plate number.”
“If you follow me, I have something in my car for you,” Alday warned.
I know that some of you take using coupons very seriously and so do I…but there is no amount of free toothpaste that is worth pulling out my Smith & Wesson (if I actually owned one, which I don't…because I HATE guns and it was a major coup in our house to allow our sons to even have AirSoft guns and it was ONLY because I knew all their friends and they would LITERALLY be the only one of their friends without one)
Actions like this make the news or go viral on The Internets and make reasonable people who use coupons look bad. Of course – YOU are not going to pull out a gun or just go nuts when things go wrong using coupons, but cashiers get a little extra nervous when things like this hit the news. It causes them to look at you as if you might be one of “the crazies”, or just be afraid of you. At the first sign of agitation, they are more willing to call a manager (which is actually usually a GOOD thing) or security (a bad thing).
So my advice? Be calm, be polite and, for The Love Of All Is Good And Holy, don't pull out your gun over a coupon!
And here most of you thought that was just plain common sense……..
