Breeders and their Brats in Wal-Mart

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 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.

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.

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.

R18 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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."

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.

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.

[quote]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.

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).

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.

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.

(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

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.
