Not trucker friendly

The Walmart I worked at for nine years here in Uvalde IS trucker friendly. I don't know for how long though. It is starting to look like a truck stop more and more, with six or eight trucks in the parking lot clumped together at a time. As a former member of management at the store, I can almost guarantee that the minute the trashing aspect becomes an issue, or the number of trucks keeps growing, it will no longer be trucker friendly.

My husband and I are very conscientious. I always return my cart to the cart corral. I have even gathered and returned many carts that have been left sitting around. We never leave garbage, not a gum wrapper. We do not idle although our apu runs.

I just hate it that so few can ruin it for so many.

He would not take a check and I sure wasn't giving him my credit card, so that meant cash. I literally begged him to remove it. I explained that I had just been sick which cost me all of our extra money. He agreed to lower it to $100. I only had $94 in cash. He removed it for that amount.

Not trucker friendly

We stopped at Walmart in Union City, GA this morning. I went in to get my prescriptions filled. And I bought a DVD. I spent $161. I was in the store for only 20 minutes. I came back to the truck. I read my instruction sheets that came with my meds. It was hot so Put up the window shades. I took my meds and then sat quietly waiting for them to work. Suddenly someone pounded on my door. There was a man there. He told me I wasn't allowed to park there. I told him that I had just shopped in the store and was waiting for my meds to make me feel better. He told me that he had put a lock boot on my wheel. He said he was charging $300 to remove it. I tried to explain to him again that I had just spent a lot of money in the store. He just walked away. I went into the store and asked to speak to the manager. I showed her my receipt and told her what happened. She was rude and not helpful and kept trying to walk away from me. By this time we had only been in that parking lot for 2 hours. And I spent $161. We saw a security person driving around. Why didn't they come over and tell us ? I will NEVER EVER shop at Union City Walmart in GA.

Does anyone know, are all Walmarts in and near Atlanta "protected" from truckers?
