A Walmart shopper shoved a 100-year old store greeter to the ground on Sunday after the greeter tried to stop the woman to check she'd paid for the items in her shopping cart. The AP reports: "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." [AP]
