    There is not a single high-stress job inside a Wall-Mart. Not one. Please stop lying.

    If Wall-Mart is such a terrible place to work, the pro-union should rejoice when Wall-Mart replaces a human cashier with a self check-out.

    Can't we all just admit this is part of Obama's move to socialize every industry?

    I've got great news, you can go get a job there right now! I know, it seems too good to be true, but you can finally live the good life, turn in your application today! And what makes it even less stressful is that after a nice, calm and relaxing evening helping several thousand people demand that you lift their televisions into their carts faster so that they can go fart out their turkey while watching Honey Boo Boo you get to go home and try to think up ways to spend your $300 paycheck! I know, you're thinking "that must be how much they get paid in a MONTH" but no, that's only two weeks!

    See you at the customer service center, I can't wait to see how quickly you can solve my many problems!

    I worked for Wall-Mart for 3 years. I did cashiering, cart collecting (which are the people who do carry-outs, aka fit the TV into the car), I've unloaded deliveries, worked in the backroom warehouse, layaway, sold guns and fishing/hunting licenses and bag-tags at sporting goods, and my fav job: outside lawn&guarded during the summer.

    I've also been shot at and mortared in Afghanistan.

    Losing a child is stressful. Divorce is stressful. Combat is stressful. Preparing to take in 2 small nieces because my sister had a very good chance of dying in brain surgery a couple years ago was stressful.

    Only whiny little bitches with no life experience think helping some customers, pushing some carts and stocking shelves is stressful.

    Ever been a "lead Tank" in a 40-man raid in World of Warcraft? Even that is more stressful than any job at Wall-Mart.

    I was thinking more the managerial slots, in terms of stress. Especially if the minions (such as yourself in this case ) are lazy or whatnot. With you around the manager probably wasn't as stressed.

    I don't see any salaried managers protesting. So far these are all cashiers and shelf-stockers.

    Well you must understand, Jerry, that there is a difference between one such as yourself, and some random highschooler. They just can't TAKE the stress, man!

    Ok I'm being a bit facetious here...

    Sheesh. If people think their Walmart jobs are stressfull they should try waiting tables in a busy restaurant, when it's asses and elbows in the foyer it's nothing but pressure in the dining room. Management's favorite gripe "Make your tables happy, but hurry them up for God's sake!"
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
