Walmart told one of their greeters to stop telling customers to “have a blessed day” after someone complained. However, hundreds of other customers showed enough support to get the store to change the decision. The manager of the store admitted that he told James Phillips to stop the greeting, but said then order did not reflect any overall company policy. When shoppers learned that Phillips was not allowed to give his greeting any longer, they gathered outside the store and chanted “Have a blessed day” over and over to make their point. The manager announced that he had reconsidered his decision and that Philips could continue to share his greeting. When asked about the incident Phillips told a reporter, “I wasn’t trying to start a movement, but I am very appreciative that people thought enough of me to stand up for me this way. I want to just be one of best greeters I know how to be.”—Jim L. Wilson & Jim Sandell
