A Texas Walmart customer had issues with the way an employee prepared her tax return earlier this week, so they talked it out and amicably settled their differences like adults. Ha, just kidding: The customer headbutted the tax prep worker in the face, and the the two wrestled on the ground, clawing at each other's hair, until bystanders pulled them apart.
Aggressively dissatisfied customer Jessica Albitz told Click2Houston that when she and her husband had their taxes done at the Jackson Hewitt location inside a Deer Park Walmart over the weekend, the unnamed employee was rude to them.
"She started talking trash at my husband," Albitz said.
So she came back the next day "to do some shopping," and just happened to spot the employee sitting in her cubicle. She claims the employee started the confrontation by "mumbling some profound language."
Although neither side is pressing charges, Albitz has been permanently barred from going back to the store.
"For the remainder of my life, I am no longer allowed to go to Walmart on Spencer Highway," she told Click2Houston.
They didn't get a comment from the tax prep worker, who's been placed on administrative leave from Jackson Hewitt. She has another job with the city of La Porte, and her boss there said that after seeing the video, he's investigating whether she violated the city's code of conduct.
As is the case with pretty much everything that goes down at a Walmart, there were no winners.
