Was in Wal-Mart this morning getting Thanksgiving dinner fixings.
The place was crowded (I thought it wouldn’t be on a Sunday morn, and breeders were allowing their small kids to wonder around cart filled aisles, where people are not paying attention to anything below eye level.
I saw three small unattended kids run into moving carts and get dinged pretty badly because they were being recklessly. Instead of feeling guilt, shame and/or remorse for not supervising their kids, all three breeders got angry at the other breeders for not watching out for other peoples kids...it was interesting witness.
I have no Wal-Mart anywhere near me! I do shop there when I visit my folks in Florida.
That's what you get for shopping at Wal-Mart, OP.
"Was in Wal-Mart this morning getting Thanksgiving dinner fixings."
I couldn't take you seriously after that sentence, OP>
You lost me at "Was in Wal-Mart this morning getting Thanksgiving dinner fixings."
I just recently went to a Walmart a couple times. I'm usually a Target and Macy's person, and for groceries I'll go to Albertsons for the big shop and to Whole Food for the bits.
I can't believe the difference in clientele. Those "people of walmart" sites are spot-on. The Southpark episode was not a joke, The people are friggin wierd and a lot of them actually do ride the scooters.
A lot of the stuff seems like shit and it's not that much cheaper.
Well then. I'm sure whatever little adventure you had was interesting in your life, but couldn't get past the first sentence to find out.
DL is truly scraping bottom when it's swapping Walmart stories.
Oh but Honey Boo Boo is ok?
What? Don't they sell flour and lard at Pavilions, OP?
Same here, r5. There's a Target and a Wal-Mart in my area, and they are almost across the street from one another. I usually go to Target, and for the most part it's just normal, regular people. The few times I've been to Wal-Mart it is just the most low-class, trashy clientele. It's just weird how they're so close to one another, they both sell the same shit and their prices are about the same, but there's such a class division between the two stores.
Welcome to the downward spiral which has become the United States of America.
[quote]they were being recklessly.
Today I learned that WalMart shoppers think verbs and adverbs are the same thing.
One more visit to WalMart and you will be forced to turn in your gay card, OP.
adv and adj
[R10] I buy dryer sheets and SD cards at Target, that's pretty much it.
You shop at Wal-mart and you're putting on airs?
Let me guess - you've also got the fanciest home in the trailer park.
About 5 years ago I vowed to never shop at Wally world.
So far I have kept to my word. Fuck em.
I live in a small town about 10 minutes from the population base, we have a Family Dollar that I don't like and a Dollar General that I do like and shop at.
R17, what's the difference between Family Dollar and Dollar General? Is it somewhat akin to the difference between Walmart and Target?
What sort of gay man admits to going to Wal-Mart? You're trashy, OP: you fully deserve to be with hets and their broodlings.
Family Dollar has a few things I go there specifically to buy.
They have real paper plates that I like to use in the microwave. They're not made from rocks or any of the other weird things most "paper" plates are made from.
They sell a laundry product that is made of sodium percarbonate just like OxiClean, only it's much less expensive.
Their house brand bleach is also very inexpensive.
They have a great price on Puffs tissues.
In my case it is how the stores are run, a friend of mine manages Dollar General
DG has better merchandise, more of a small grocery while FD sells crap stuff does not have the selection DG does and it is higher priced.
For dollar stores, you park in front and right into the store.
Wally World, you park and trek into the store and almost need a taxi to get around the place I don't like spending that much time as I don't like to shop.
There have been rare instances where I have gritted my teeth and gone into Walmart because the price for their yeast for bread machines is the lowest in town. Each time I go in it is the same cacaphony of nagging, demanding kids and then the shrieking when parents have the will to say no. I walk as fast as I can through the aisles trying to get around them and quickly buy what I came in for and get out as fast as I can. I don't dawdle or browse for anything in that dreadful place. And before someone asks me I will say yes, it is worth the aggravation to brave Walmart for a few cheap items as I only do it maybe 4 times a year at the very most.
I like WalMart. Always seems like an adventure. The very bowels of American culture at its worst. Smoke some weed and walk the aisles. A true American adventure.
One thing though, their restrooms always smell like month old piss. Do they not clean them from time to time? Do the customers just piss on the floors rather than the urinals? It's like Calcutta in August.
WalMart= Wally World???
I go first thing in the morning to avoid the crowded aisles.
I live in LA and go to Target often. Good place to shop for everything. Great environment.
Every now and again I find myself out on work jobs in the high desert and there's nothing but Wal Marts. Obese rednecks with awful kids and the place smells like chemicals from bad Chinese made products.
I've found deals at Family Dollar on fake sugar, coffee filters, and greeting cards. Also great for dry and wet Swiffer pads!
I thought there were a lot of DLers boycotting Target?
I liked your post r26, funny as hell but true. I guess one would need a sense of humor like yours to brave the bedlam of Walmart.

And the High Holy Days of Walmart -- Black Friday -- is just four days away!
Who will be stabbed, beaten and Tased this year in the exciting rush for bargains?
You must be a miserable person OP. I picture you on airplanes getting all queened out when a kid sits in a seat behind you. You're a straight people hater, kid hater (because you couldn't have them), and are very angry.
My mom lives in the middle of nowhere now, and I actually refuse to visit her local Walmart. I swear it's the most depressing thing ever.
The one in the adjacent county however, different story. College town and plenty of eye candy to make up for the typically hideous clientele.
Save your sanctimonious sermons for church r34, I'm not OP but you sound like a real jerk to me, maybe even a frau. Kids are disliked because their supposedly straight and equally dislikable parents either can't control them or don't know any better than to teach them consideration for others or both, even "queeny" types which YOU seem to hate---we all have our crosses to bear, bitch, but unlike Jesus, there is nothing spewing from your mouth that will stand the test of time.
[quote]smells like chemicals from bad Chinese made products.
Is that what that smell is? My sister asked me to drive her shopping one day. She is kind of heavy. We went into a store called "Maurices" right next to target. The smell in there made me want to pass the fuck out. I sometimes smell it in "TJ Maxx", but I admit I still sometimes go there, especially because they have nice men's socks, and you can great deals on cookware if your lucky.
[quote] Smoke some weed and walk the aisles. A true American adventure.
I just might give it a try.
You lost all credibility at your belief that Wal-Mart would not be crowded the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Even if you had not, feigning surprise that children there are left unattended marks you as a troll.
"Each time I go in it is the same cacaphony of nagging, demanding kids and then the shrieking when parents have the will to say no."
Walmart hardly has a monopoly on this type of BS. I refuse to go into a Target after 10:00AM on weekends because it sounds like a fucking maternity ward with all the screaming kids.
[quote]What sort of gay man admits to going to Wal-Mart?
I heard you have to pluck the feathers off of turkeys at Walmart. Is this true, OP?
OP, "it takes a village" for America to receive the fucked-up idea, courtesy of Hillary, that we have ANY responsibilty for other people's spawn.
I'm with OP in hating the screaming spawn in grocery stores. I was out shopping yesterday at Wegman's and it was a madhouse. Entire families were there shopping together--husband, wife and three screaming brats barreling down the aisles with those huge carts that have a car in the front for kids to sit in. Ridiculous. One of the two adults needs to stay home and mind the brats while the other goes shopping. Why does grocery shopping have to be a family day out and why are kids indulged as though they're at Disney World?
I would starve and go naked before shopping at Wal-Mart. One of my colleagues calls it the "Creature Cantina."
Look up the Wal-Mart bingo card for a good laugh. The free space in the center is "People oblivious to the fact they're in your way."
Ikea can be pretty bad too. The last time I was there was filled with unruly kids, the worst group was three kids from the same family, each one zooming around with an empty cart, ramming into each other and yelling BEEP! BEEP!
Wal-Mart Bingo Card lol!
"Man under 30 without any teeth"
"Obese person using scooter"
"White girl with 3+ multi-racial children"
[quote]I'm with OP in hating the screaming spawn in grocery stores
As opposed to those who enjoy shopping with screaming children?
Why would you go into their natural habitat?
Sadly I live in a small town surrounded for miles by nothing but corn/soybean fields and other small towns so Wal-Mart is one of our only shopping options around here and it's as bad as they say,screaming kids,teen moms with a herd of screeching brats,nasty looking people who look like they stepped out of Deliverance or a psych ward,it's a real mess!
You have to get up early to shop. Get there when they open for a stress free experience.
Are Walmart stores as dirty as people say? I remember a thread here a while back, talking about dirty diapers found stuffed in Walmart shelves
I ventured into a WM last week as I've been long-unemployed and had to save some $$ and, no lie, in the first 10 minutes I was there before I walked out, I saw some 300 lb guy pushing his mother in a wheelchair to the bathroom. I also saw some trashy woman in a halter-top thing with her loose belly hanging out.
That was enough! I'll never step in one of those stores ever again.
[quote] One of the two adults needs to stay home and mind the brats while the other goes shopping. Why does grocery shopping have to be a family day out and why are kids indulged as though they're at Disney World?
Hispanics in my area are like this, big time. It's like a family outing. Grandmas, cousins, etc. A whole posse of them out shopping. I think it's a cultural thing with them.
OP, look at where you are.
"Are Walmart stores as dirty as people say?"
The bathrooms reek of urine, dirty period and pungent body smells only experienced in nightmares.
With the amount of traffic at those stores, they should have a dedicated swamp person in hazmat outfits to clean.
Indians too r54. Wal-Mart is a family outing, if you can imagine. The parents, all their kids and even the grandparents go in one group.
"The bathrooms reek of urine, dirty period and pungent body smells only experienced in nightmares."
So many of us get off regularly in public restrooms and in cum-stained video booths, so I don't see how any of us can cast stones.

Dream on, freak. You're just a small minority.
How convenient this thread allows me to tell you what happened to me today.
I was in the canned vegetable aisle getting English peas. All of a sudden this little kid runs smack into my cart. I was intent at looking at the cans when the kid hit my cart, and I didn't see him coming. Then the mother comes and picks the little monster up off the floor. She looks at me and says, "you know, had you been watching, you could have moved your cart." I told her that if she was doing her job, then this wouldn't have happened.
What was her response to you, R60?

And yet, Target contributes large amounts of money to political campaigns that are opposed to equal rights for gay people, whereas I haven't heard anything about WalMart doing that. There are many other reasons to despise & avoid WalMart (which I do), but at least not that one (so far).
You lost me at "I was in Wal-Mart." Anyone who goes into Wal-Mart deserves whatever comes next.
[quote]Hispanics in my area are like this, big time. It's like a family outing. Grandmas, cousins, etc. A whole posse of them out shopping. I think it's a cultural thing with them.
And let's not forget that they walk 3 and 4 abreast blocking aisles, parking lots etc.
I was in Super Walmart this week too. Two boys were blocking the aisle I was coming down and their dad told them "get the fuck out the way!" I was impressed. I know it will never happen again though, and I'll have to run over those bitch ass children like I usually do.
The last time I went to WalMart (to get a prescription) I saw a used diaper in a shopping cart in front of the store

Look what happened last Christmas Eve at a Wal-Mart. A woman decided to punch a 70 yr old Wal-Mart greeter in the face. Now the bitch has to serve 5 yrs in jail.
R11."Welcome to the downward spiral which has become the United States of America."
Yes...and it all ends at Datalounge.
I hate Wal-Mart and try to avoid it at all costs, which hasn't always been easy, especially when I lived in NW Arkansas, which is Wally World ground zero. Like R26, I at least try to make any outings there more enjoyable by getting stoned out of my mind beforehand and treating it as a sort of anthropological expedition. It's also fun to engage in various forms of (mild) PDA with my girlfriend just to gauge the reactions of fellow shoppers.
I made the mistake of using the restroom there once and all I'll say is never again.
I was in Wal-Mart the other week to buy some cheap workout tees. This fatty in front of me had her cart filled with chips and other assorted junk. Her daughter was just as fat and I could swear that I heard her refer to the brat as Obesadee.
LOL R73. Wild and crazy. Who knows what's in that misc. pile of meat parts. If Grandma Shing Ling has gone missing, id first check that pile at Wal Mart.
A lot of that meat, at R73, is domestic dog meat.
Walmart shoppers are absolute savage animals. I came out of the store one time only to discover someone had thrown a Slurpee ALL over my car. WTF? Who does that? ANIMALS!
r61, her huffy look changed to something sheepish, but she didn't say anything. A couple of other shoppers in the aisle smiled when I replied to the mother.
No wonder G-D wants the world to end! This also explains why employees will walk out, they don't want to be abused by customers!
[quote]Walmart shoppers are absolute savage animals. I came out of the store one time only to discover someone had thrown a Slurpee ALL over my car. WTF? Who does that? ANIMALS
That's AWFUL! Maybe they thought you were a GLEE fan.
If you are ever wide awake and bored go to Walmart after 11 or 12 at night. Entertainment galore. You will see some definite weirdos.
Things I had never heard of/seen before becoming a regular reader of People of Walmart, and that are apparently common among the Wal-Mart demographic:
(1) Gluing toys all over the outside of one's car
(2) Leaving/escaping the hospital still wearing the hospital-issued gown
(3) Wearing some sort of a tail in a non-Halloween, non-sex context
(4) Making clothing and accessories out of Crown Royal bag
Many ladies go in their nightgowns after midnight.
I wonder whether the Chinese Wal-Marts (see R73) sell orange juice and cooking oil together in order to make homemade napalm. They sell guns in the United States, so perhaps they sell other weapons at the ready in China?
I find the turtles and frogs together quite interesting.
