I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
This thread is like the proverbial **** that attracts flies. Amazing how many conservatives hit this thing within minutes of it going up to hammer the "takers".
Just like the unscrupulous people waiting to pounce on a glitch which lets them take advantage of the system, you all live for these kinds of opportunities. Don't you?
From what little info I have, it seems the wal-mart manager onsite didn't know about the generally accepted procedures for such a situation, so they called corporate. Corporate apparently either didn't know about the same procedures (and didn't ask anyone who might) or didn't care, and just told them to let people buy whatever.
The people buying the stuff should have been a bit more reasonable about it, but that particular wal-mart should have known better as well.
Overall it seems like a ****up on the part of everyone, not least Xerox, or rather their child company ACS Inc.
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
Whats just a little more funny than watching the herd of handout clowns stealing shopping baskets full of food is the people that rush into here and a-defend them and b-blame it on Walmart.
The people who are solely responsible for this are those who bought beyond what they knew their benefits were. There are occasionally banking glitches where a number is off and someone ends up with way more money than they were supposed to, that doesn't mean they get to go on a shopping spree.
One of you will end up here next!
