    Well, regardless of his attitude, you were walking out of there, and he never will. I'm not necessarily saying the handicapped should get a pass. Or maybe I am? I just figure if someone has to pour their own dung out of a bag twice a day, they probably have a right to be a little grumpy. It's no skin off my teeth. Or maybe he was feeling vexed because some rotten kids were just laughing at him? I dunno, MYOD. I can be a class A bitch, but I don't go into Walmart and expect to be treated the way I'm treated in Macy's. I find most Walmart employees to be a little on the grumpy side because they're probably dealing with jerks all day. But then, I bought my first set of dumbells from a walmart dude with no fingers. He couldn't have been nicer.

    And now they have their gays clad in yellow vests.

    Actually since I go through work shirts and pants alot walmart is a savior for me. Good dress shirts and pants for $20 is great instead of going to Sears and pay $10 more.

    Re: Walmart employee forced to wear a yellow vest after boss found out he was gay.

    Believe Walmart employees are required to wear yellow vests when they patrol the lot to bring the carts back in. Sounds sort of like this guy may have gotten re-assigned to cart duty and is trying to twist the incident into some kind of "scarlet letter" melodrama claiming it was done because he happens to be a homo.....

    Re: Walmart employee forced to wear a yellow vest after boss found out he was gay.

    I agree. In retail a special vest caries special meaning. And I doubt it's "I'm gay". Usually when I see discrimination in the retail workplace, it's making someone do some kind of undesirable/unreasonable task. Not wear a different colored uniform that someone around there is going to be wearing anyway, and walk around doing nothing. Though, I've seen ignorant people do some stupid things they thought was funny, but was mostly just baffling to everyone else.

    If he was walking around doing nothing and being paid, that's just wrong and unfair to other employees. He should find something to do or quit instead of taking money he didn't earn. I really doubt his whole story.
    I have great respect for the greeters etc. who work there. Wal-mart should be commended for giving them work. However I don't think they should be required to keep on lazy bums. Lazy bums should be shunned.

    Re: Walmart employee forced to wear a yellow vest after boss found out he was gay.

    No one picked up on this yet?

    A Walmart spokesman, Phil Keene, said that Gallardo's yellow uniform may have been nothing unusual.

    "It is my understanding that the former associate was a temporary hire while the store is under remodeling," Keene told The Advocate. "Between the 50 or so temporary associates in that store, there is a rotation through the position of 'May I Help You' associate. The several associates in this role wear a vest so customers can identify them and ask for help in finding products that may have been temporarily moved to a new spot."
    There was apparently a specific, justifiable reason this employee was weaing a colored vest and wandering the store and it had nothing to do with discrimination.
    "Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it; no constitution, no law, no court can even do much to help it." - Judge Learned Hand
