[IP] Re: Shopping a KMART and WALMART BEWARE

Beware whilst shopping at either of these stores.  I have never visited 
one prior to Saturday and needles to say, I shall never visit another 
Upon entering both stores, at different times on Saturday, the door 
alarm went off.  I just explained to the fellow standing there it was my 
son and myself and we had various attached and implanted medical 
devices.  He waved us through.
On our way out of KMART the alarms went off again and a clerk grabbed me 
by the wrist at the door and demanded I stand there until security 
arrived.  She then demanded that I remove the pump and hand it to her. 
 Fortunately there was a nurse in line and she reprimanded the clerk and 
told her to leave us alone.  She proceeded with further interrogation 
and pulled the pump from my belt.  Of course it came out attached to its 
43 inch infusion line and dropped to the cement floor.
Their security came and finally let me go when I showed them my card 
that comes with the pacemaker and my MiniMed card with all the info on 
it.  We had over $300 in Halloween stuff for our annual party.  We 
immediately took it back....alarms going off again and demanded a full 
refund.  Refund given to my credit card even though I gave them cash. 
 No apology just admonished that I might want to shop elsewhere.  I 
agreed whole heartedly never to step foot in that store again.  No 
apology nothing!
On to Walmart.  Basically the same story except the guard slammed my son 
into the door.  With much apprehension we entered the store.  Shopped 
for the Halloween stuff again.  Same story only the amount was $265.  We 
demanded our money back and the same deal was accomplished.  No cash 
back.  Most interesting experience shopping in America.  I have never 
been so badly or rudely treated anyplace in this world.
No more stores such as these.  This doesn't happen in Nordstroms or 
Bloomies.  No wonder these stores are going bankrupt.
