Walmart employee goes above and beyond duty, Potsdam man says

To the Editor:

On July 3 at about noon I had the occasion to go into Walmart in Potsdam to do a little shopping and being disabled I had to wait for an electric cart to be brought back to use.

While sitting there a young man was refilling the pizza display when a lady came pushing a cart and complaining about not getting a cart.

She directed her complaints to the young man and I could see that he didn’t know what to say.

She asked him if he was the manager and he said no mam, I’m an associate, she continued on about how she would tell all her friends about not being about to get a cart and how she would never come back into the store, I think that this woman should realize that it wasn’t that young man’s fault that she chose to come in to shop at one of the busiest times of the day and on a day before a holiday.

I felt sorry for the young man and wanted people to know that another lady came in to get a chair and none were available, he took time to go and see if the wheelchair with a basket was available for her.

I think he did a fine job and just wanted him to know it. As for the other woman, if she is that upset do what you have to do.
