Safe at Walmart?

But now I recall why I hate shopping at Walmart: the clientele. A woman started yelling at the customer because she was upset that the customer had too many items in her cart, failing to understand that the customer was only checking through with 20 items in the 20 item line. The irate woman took her arm and shoved the items on the counter back into the customer's cart, while ranting and raving, many of the items falling to the floor. Meanwhile, another employee told the woman her behavior was irresponsible and he would allow the customer to check out due to the irate woman's behavior, to which, the woman threw her items across the store and demanded to see a manager. All of this, of course, delayed the entire line because the cashier was too timid to continue until the customer reminded her the other employee approved.
In conclusion, the original customer left the store with her 20 items and the manager was nowhere to be seen. All the irate customer did was hold up the line and scatter items onto the floor, which an employee had to pick up.
No wonder a woman was mixing meth for 6 hours in an Oklahoma Walmart before security noticed.
And today, a meth lab was found inside a Walmart restroom in Alabama.
With customers who lack appropriate behavior, and managers who don't care that there is nearly physical violence in the store, is it even safe to shop at Walmart?
Perhaps not; I'll go back to Target, where they have plenty of open cashier lanes and the customers have more class while the store is a much better environment.
