Customer Takes Matters Into His Own Hands When Women Harass Employee, But He Never Could Have Guess Happened Years Later.

In a captivating display of rebellious solidarity, the Original Poster (OP), an unassuming Walmart customer, becomes an unexpected hero by standing up to two entitled shoppers mistreating a store employee. As the drama unfolds in a thrilling chase through the aisles and a tense reunion a year later, the consequences of OP’s actions remain tantalizingly unknown.

In the Supermarket

OP, a man in his 50s, is in a Walmart where he observes two entitled women in their 40s blocking a young female employee from restocking the store. The women treat the employee with disdain, refusing to move and inhibiting her from performing her duties. Sensitive to such disrespect towards workers, OP feels his indignation growing.

The Cart Heist

Deciding to take action, OP boldly snags one of the women’s grocery-filled carts and makes a run for it. A chase ensues as the women realize their cart has been stolen, and they start pursuing OP. With deft maneuvering, OP manages to keep the cart away from the women and reaches the front of the store.

At the front of the store, OP lets go of the stolen cart and retreats, leaving the confused women behind. He heads back to retrieve his original cart but spots the second woman’s unattended cart next to the restocking doors. OP decides to teach her a lesson, too, firmly grasping the handle of the second cart.

Heading to the camping section of the store with the second cart, OP is fully aware he may be perceived as the antagonist, yet he feels compelled to continue his mission. He removes the cold stuff from the cart, claiming the milk and eggs for himself. In the back of his mind, OP regrets that a Walmart worker would eventually have to restock the cart.

Disappearance and Reflection

Upon returning to the camping section later, OP discovers the cart he abandoned has already been taken care of. A tinge of relief washes over him, knowing the employee’s burden has been lessened. OP doesn’t think much of the incident afterward, and life carries on.

A Chance Encounter

A year later, OP is at a restaurant with his extended family when a familiar face catches his eye. A waitress who has been throwing glances at him throughout the meal finally clicks into place in his memory. He recognizes her as the young Walmart employee from the incident a year ago.

Recognition and Revelations

Upon being recognized, the waitress excitedly confirms she used to work at Walmart and shares the aftermath of OP’s act of rebellion with him. The entitled woman had complained to the store manager, demanding that OP be found and arrested. However, the manager suspected there was more to the story.

The waitress had told the manager the true events of that day, vindicating OP’s actions. The incident has since become a tale of heroism among the store employees, earning OP a legendary status. This revelation surprises OP but also fills him with a sense of satisfaction.

OP, amused by his newfound fame, shares that he had posted the story in the subreddit Am I The A******, where he was, in fact, voted an a******. The waitress, however, strongly disagrees, reaffirming his status as a legend. OP is left pondering on this clash of public and personal judgments.

To add to the intrigue, OP’s sister shares a similar tale from their childhood with the waitress. The shared past reveals a pattern of rebellious actions in OP’s life, making him reflect on his propensity to stand against entitlement. However, he decides to keep this story to himself for the time being.
