A WALMART employee threatened to call the police on a customer after she was accused of stealing at the self-checkout lane – but the customer says the retailer was in the wrong.
The customer took to TikTok to air her grievances after she says the employee yelled at her over a mishap.
Laura, @AHappyCouponer, has more than 4,000 followers on the social media app.
She says she went to Walmart because there was a good deal where summer clothes were as low as three cents.
“They’re supposed to be taken off the sales floor, I know that,” said Laura.
“But if you, as an employee, don’t do your job and take them in the back when they’re supposed to be in the back, that’s your problem, not mine as a consumer.”
Laura said he used to work in retail and had even been in a management position at some point.
“Usually when a deal doesn’t work and people tell me: ‘Oh, hey, you don’t we can’t do this … this doesn’t work,’ I’m the last person that throws a fit about it,” she said.
However, she claims that the employee was rude to her, prompting her to “be rude to them back.”
Laura claims an employee began yelling and cursing at her, snatching the clothes out of her hands.

Then, she said she was accused of stealing.
“I’m like, lady if you would have walked up to me and been a normal decent human being, I would have been like, OK, whatever.”
She says that since the clothes were on the sales floor, the employee is obligated to sell them to her.
“You can’t not not sell me these clothes.”
Laura said a supervisor was called in, who threatened to call the cops on her, which made her grab her stuff and leave the store.
“Just be normal! Just talk normal!” said Laura. “Don’t come up to me accusing me of stealing and making you lose your job and threatening to call the cops. What the f**k is wrong with your employees, Walmart?”
People in the comments shared similar experiences.
“THIS HAPPENED TO ME TODAY! Cart was snatched, was humiliated, then told I could keep scanning,” wrote one person.
“Wow seem so many videos on this. So true!” wrote another.
