Black-Eyed Walmart Employee

By January 28, 2013

Follow me on:

"In June, 2008, I was shopping in my local Walmart in Grants Pass, Oregon," reports Audrie. "I was wandering the store getting my groceries when I noticed a Walmart employee (wearing the blue smock uniform) just standing at the edge of the isle. I thought it was weird because he wasn't moving, just staring at something or someone. He was tall, very pale, and had long black hair. When I got closer, I noticed that his eyes were completely black. No pupils, irises, or whites whatsoever!

"I just stared at him and he seemed to be staring at me. Scared me to death, mostly because it was hard to tell where he was looking. I had no idea if it was at me or someone else. I moved on with my shopping, but saw him there about four or five times total on different dates, and every time I saw him he was just standing around, not moving. I tried to rule out things like black contacts because it is hard to believe was that the manager would let him wear something so utterly creepy to work. I have no idea what he was, but he wasn't normal, and to this day it still bugs me that I don't know if he was a real employee or not."

I think we've all seen very strange characters at Walmart, Audrie, but this guy gets a 10 on the creep scale. One idea about these black-eyed people is that they wear black contacts just to freak people out. But, as you say, it doesn't seem like his manger would approve... unless... *gulp* ... he was the manager! Which would explain why he's just standing around making people feel uncomfortable.

In any case, these black-eyed people -- whether they are pranksters, aliens, demons, weirdos, or Walmart employees -- they continue to unnerve everyone who sees them. Consider these other reports:

Although it’s not common, I’m pretty sure it’s actually a genetic condition. I know somebody who’s daughter had the same eyes and also have seen a boy with the eyes myself when I was young and was told by my parents that he was completely normal.

I don’t know about this story because normally if you see something like this, wouldn’t you ask another employee about him?

I own contact lenses of all kinds of colors (no rx) and I wear them everywhere, even at work. But then I don’t work with the public. Maybe that’s a good thing…

They are available for $99.95 from crazycontacts. There is a photo of the product being worn. I think with all the media hype about black-eyed children and the horror genre angle they are becoming a cool, if creepy, fashion statement. They are very goth! Maybe they even sell them in Walmart somewhere? Yes, maybe it WAS the manager!?
