Wal-Mart customer shoves 100 year old greeter; Just what is this world coming to?

MILWAUKEE (Nov. 29) — A 100-year-old greeter at a Milwaukee Walmart was shoved by a customer after the centenarian tried to stop the woman to determine if she’d paid for items that were in the lower part of her shopping cart, police said Monday.

Greeter Lois Speelman fell down and went to a hospital after she was shoved on Sunday.

“I’m bruised a little, but I’m able to go back to work Thursday,” Speelman told The Associated Press from her home on Monday.

Speelman declined to answer further questions, saying she didn’t want to lose her job and the investigation wasn’t over. A Wal-Mart Stores Inc. spokeswoman didn’t have more details but said that Speelman’s health was the company’s primary concern.

“Most importantly, our associate is doing OK and we’re grateful for that. The actions of this individual are appalling and we appreciate the work of police in this case,” spokeswoman Ashley Hardie said.
