Frank Woods and Rob Honey grew up in the hood and both fell into the lifestyle before them, but God grabbed hold of them through Jesus Christ and restored them to a life of Hope, Purpose, and Christian Ministry. Now they are on a mission to give back to the community by bringing people to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Frank Woods is the Community Outreach Director at Genesis in Milwaukee which is a non-profit organization focused on re-entry initiative and a minister at Christ Community church.

I recently made an online order and spent a chunk of money and I have now been waiting two weeks for a few of the items and one got sent back to the sender, I did a reorder because the one being sent back was for my son on his birthday which was suppose to be there on his birthday and that was the day it got there and then got sent back because the shipper said unable to deliver because the order was shipped with the wrong shipper. Now the second time around they have delayed it until who knows when when it was put on rush order and suppose to be there today. This is utter bull crap and I will not be ordering from again. They need to fix this and not give me the run around.

i work for walmart it was Saturday or Sunday morning and I saw a manger yelling at employee . So I started paying attention and I saw the manger grab the employee. I was shocked. And when I went to give my statement wat I saw they told me that I was lieing. So now I scared that it might happen to me. Mangers like yelling at employee I hope someone reports it. I’m afraid that it might be me next. I love working for walmart but the manager there like to yell.

I am disabled and went to the Walmart here in Ft. Myers, Fl. on Six Mile Cypress. Two weeks straight and they have 6 handicapped Scooters sitting there in the entry way ALL out of order. You would think that this type of establishment could afford to get the Scooters fixed. I will not return to this Store until they can accommodate the Disabled Customers. This is crazy to have so many out of order all at once. I hope that something will be done about this.

Dear Walmart Corporate:

Are you aware that there’s been a major Facebook hacking using the name of your company? I advise you look into this before people sue. I’ll go ahead and share this to Facebook myself to make sure you’re paying attention.

To whom it may concern:
REF: Walmart Florida City Store # 2727 (I bought a 60″TV and found a 50″ inside)

On May 1st 2015 night I purchased a 60″ Element LED HDTV 60″ TV. The box looked a little miss handled with some signs of wear and strap was shifted but at the moment it meant nothing. I was rushing to go install this TV for the big Mayweather and Paquiao fight the following day. Me and my dad were very exited as we never owned a large TV before. This TV was the top box first and easiest to access out of a bundle on the floor four or five on the bottom and one on top.
We got got home my dad and I and started to open the box and clean the family room to install the TV. As I opened the box I noticed the box opened very easy and the TV looked smaller than the floor models. I made a joke to my dad and said they probably have a larger floor models and the real size is small. I said we should have bought a 70″. Out of curiosity I grabbed a measuring tape and started to measure the TV and it was a 50″ TV not a 60″ TV. I felt instantly cheated, angry and very disappointed.
My dad and I immediately took the TV back and demanded to speak to the manager. The manager that attended us I will refer to as Mrs Carmel. Mrs Carmel immediately after hearing the story was in disbelieve and said she could not help me that I had to come in the morning when customer service was open. We refused to leave and finally she looked in the box, she said it was a big decision and she could not tell what size the TV was. We went back and forth and she called two police officers which escorted us out and said to come back the next morning to resolve the issue.
We arrived the next morning May 2 and we were welcomed by a customer service assistant who contacted an assistant manager who’s name was Alex and he called his higher up who I will refer to as Mr. Ruis. After hearing my story Mr. Ruiz explained since it was the wrong item in the box he could not return or refund. Mr. Ruis said this was a manufacturer issue and he did not have the authority to make a decision. I called the manufacturer and they tried to assist me but explained that the Walmart manager was responsible for making a decision. I went back to Mr. Ruiz and he got on the phone with the manufacturer representative, he asked if she was going to give him a credit if he took the TV and she did not agree. Once again he said it was not his responsibility. I’n the mean time I overheard in the background conversations that the TV inside the box was from Target. At this point I was not leaving without a solid answer Mr. Ruis called an officer to supervise the situation, I was not there to cause any trouble the officer allowed me to make some more calls. I called the Walmart customer service hotline and the operator after hearing my story said that all issues are handled at the Walmart and said she will email Mr. Ruis to investigate further and he should get back to me withing 3 days.
I was running out of patients and with a low serene approach I confronted Mr. Ruis and asked to be honest and tell me if he could make a decision or not. He confessed and said yes so I replied what is your decision. Mr. Ruiz answered my decision is I can’t do anything. I was in shock, disbelieve and left the store feeling hopeless of any justice and any rights as a consumer. I wondered how many people this has happened to and what if it had happen to someone who did not know better or a less fortunate person. I felt like I was David and Walmart was Goliath. I ended up buying a TV from BEST BUY which I thoroughly inspected and was able to watch the fight with family and friends. I’m here telling my story to clear my name, to demand respect, an apology, justice and my money.

Hello to the other disbelievers in Wal-Mart Management as I too have become one. I may not stop doing all business with the W-MK but I can assure you over the past couple of years I do less and less and less. The Product Choice just keeps shrinking badly and they try to force you to select THEIR CHOICE for YOUR CHOICE and I am not doing that. I have not found one person at W-M that I honestly believe takes anyone seriously on any feedback or complaint. Tonight I tried over and over to contact W-M through Customer Service and then when that failed, I tried their Corporate Phone Number and it was before 9:PM, which is when they shut the phone off and that never connected with a human being so it ran past 9:PM. I then tried e-mail similar to this posting and it took me over 15 Captcha codes the first attempt and 9 on the 2nd attempt. Only God knows how many times it will take on this.

It is with great sadness that I must share this story with you. It not only forces me to remember my father’s death in October of 2014, but it is a shocking reality of one local Wal-Mart stores lack of care & concern for a Veteran who lay dying on their floor. Included are excerpts from my letter dated April 6, 2015 to the Post Falls Wal-Mart Store 3472 Manager Arthur Wardell to which we have not received so much as an acknowledgement from. As my father who was a Veteran, lay helpless, confused and dying in their store his desperation of getting help was ignored by several employees whose only response was “we don’t do that for customers”. Even a phone call to 911 for help was not offered and my father succumbed shortly after at the Spokane Veterans Hospital. This could have happened to anybody you know, your father, your family, yourself. All I was seeking out was an apology for the Wal-Mart employee’s cold and heartless actions that day, nothing more. An acknowledgment of what happened and a sincere apology with a reassurance that this was not in fact, the standard practice for Wal-Mart Employees in an emergency situation with a customer. As of right now, we have received no acknowledgement and no apology. I felt it was necessary to share with other consumers of Wal-Mart our story; I have no desire to shop with a local business who could let anyone lie dying and keep walking with no thought to do something. Would you want to be the unlucky one lying in their store dying with no help? It scares me to think that a company operates that way without the common courtesy of acting like a human being when approached with this dilemma.

Wal-Mart claims to be about “Ethics & Integrity”, if that doesn’t entail their associates to do the right thing then I know nothing of the Ethics & Integrity they so highly pride themselves on. I am not looking for anything by sharing our story either, but wanted others to understand the kind of company they are choosing to associate with should they continue shopping at Wal-Mart. I understand that it is convenient to shop at Wal-Mart, they have everything you want but ask yourself if they have everything you NEED should you suffer any type of medical emergency in their store. I know firsthand that they do not, and by their silence and lack of care to acknowledge my letter, it appears that what a customer needs is not their concern as well. Please share this if you feel an injustice has been done. Thank you for taking the time to hear our story. Following are excerpts of my letter along with verification that the letter was received by Post Falls Wal-Mart.

“On Tuesday, September 16 2014 my father and my son made a trip to Wal-Mart Store #3472 in Post Falls, Idaho to shop and instead of experiencing the usually helpful employees, they encountered the opposite as my father lay dying on your floor unable to breath. Had they known that day that they all requests for help would have gone ignored, they would never had stepped foot in your store. Shortly after entering the doors my father became very short of breath and started displaying signs of what an oxygen-deprived brain goes through. He was confused, disorientated, scared, and ultimately collapsed onto the floor while my 14-year-old son attempted to get any employee to help him get a motorized cart to get his grandfather off of the floor and into help. When the first two employees continued to walk past, my son voiced that my dad was a Veteran and needed immediate help to which a third employee told my son “we don’t do that for customers, sorry”.

At that point my son, who is small in stature had no choice but to help pick my father up (he was 6’ 2” and 205lbs) and get him outside in order to get help. He was taken to the Spokane Veterans Hospital where he was admitted to the ICU and later died on October 5, 2014 from Lung complications. We were told that he had barely managed to stay alive long enough to get to the hospital, and we will always wonder if the proper actions of your store employees could have prolonged my father’s life. I have been unable to answer my child, who is also a Private in the North Idaho Young Marines, when he questions how and why anyone could leave a man on the floor of their establishment when he was in obvious distress and being asked for help. My father was a Navy Veteran who served this Country and to have to lay there unable to breath and disorientated, watching his grandson beg employees for help and be ignored, is unacceptable. It is unacceptable to think that ANY human being should have to go through that, what would your answer to your child be?

I have not contacted your Corporate offices or social media as I stated before, as I would like to give you a fair opportunity to handle my complaint before doing so. Though my father succumbed shortly after being in your store, my son saved his life that day even if it was only long enough to get to the hospital so he didn’t have to die in a Wal-Mart Store. I am shocked and angry that your employees could so cold heartedly leave a man to die by citing it was not Wal-Mart’s policy to get a motorized cart for a customer. I am hopeful that you will respond appropriately and within an acceptable time frame as I do not wish to drag this out any longer than it has too. You can reach me by email or by postal mail, both of which I have listed above. If I have not received your response by Thursday April 30th either by email or USPS, I will then proceed with posting our story as well as this letter on all Social Media outlets.”


As of May 12, 2015 we still have had no acknowledgement from Post Falls Wal-Mart Store Manager Arthur Wardell or any other Associate regarding the letter. It deeply saddens me even more to realize that the people who are representing Wal Mart haven’t the respect or common courtesy to acknowledge there is someone looking to them for an answer or at the very least, a respectful acknowledgment that yes, they received my letter. A copy of the letter was sent to Wal-Mart Corporate Offices as well in hopes of having someone in upper Management treat us as customers of theirs should be treated as well as human beings. Their statement is after all, “Personal and moral integrity is one of our basic fundamentals and it has to start with each of us” Sam Walton …… where has each of their integrity gone?

Celeste Duncan May 7, 2015 at 10:17 am

Oh the mundane things we complain about…….but here goes. Went to Walmart yesterday looking for amongst other things a basil plant in the outdoor section. I was appalled that more than half the plants were dead or dying for lack of water, but they were still for sale at full price! It seems to me the powers that be would mark these poor things down or just give them away to someone who is good with plants. It makes more sense to make a little money on something, rather than just throwing them out, and that is what is going to happen to these plants. No one, including myself, will pay full price for plants in this condition. I WOULD however, loaded my cart up with discounted plants I know I could save. So much waste!!!!!!


F*** You May 6, 2015 at 10:10 am

This company sucks. They steal money from customers. Do not buy a Walmart Money card, it will never be sent to you. I have had my tax money and paychecks direct deposited and I can not touch MY MONEY because my card was never sent in MARCH!!!! This is May. Are you kidding me? I have contacted a lawyer and will be contacting my local news station.

Deidre Zackery May 1, 2015 at 10:29 am

Good morning, I am writing to you because I am a very upset patron of Walmart. Myself and my coworker was in store # 4446 on Friday 5/01 at about 6:50am. Once we got our items and purchase our things. First at that time of morning there was only 1 cash register open and the store was full of customers. Second she was very slow and when she asked several other reps to get on a register all of them stated that they were off and at this time the line is growing. Third the cashier tape ranned out and it took her 10 minutes to fix by this time me and my coworker was late for work. The cashier also flipped her light on to get a manager and no one ever came while we were there. If this is the kind of customer service that you have I will stop going to your stores. Everytime I go into this store I have never had a good exiperence. Being that I work in the customer service field this makes your company look very bad. More registers need to be open for the morning rush in that store. I have made this complaint to your management team and still nothing has been done.


Eric Myers April 29, 2015 at 6:24 pm


My name is Eric. I am a regular satisfied customer of Wal-Mart and Sams. The issue that I have is as follows:

Over the last 8 years, I have purchased three different Vizio Tv’s from Sams Club. Two of those TV’s had defects, within the one year warranty period. Sams Club took great care of us and convinced us to exchange for a different Vizio each time. We did. However, the last Vizio that I purchased ($1,300.00), stopped working this last week (2 years old), and I was told by Vizio, that since we are out of warranty, that they could not help us, but had the nerve to try and sell me another TV, at a slightly discounted price. Can you please help me? Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.


sarah lutz April 28, 2015 at 8:30 am

sherry vec April 23, 2015 at 5:25 pm

I am writing to you because I am a very upset patron of Walmart. I purchased great value twist tie bags .I put instructions in there for students I printed 100 pages to stuff and I was left with 24 papers that means I was shorted 24 bags the box says 100. This is outrageous because most people just use them randomly and would never know. This needs to be looked into.
