People of Walmart

I could add a picture to accompany this post… but which one?

Snaps of people shopping at Walmart.

Gus, please explain. There’s freedom and then there’s this…

    Yeah, you see all of society’s flotsam and jetsam at Wal-Mart, but where else can you buy groceries, beer, hardware, bath towels, clothing… and ammunition, all at the same place?

    I think the site answers the question “what happens when people don’t care?”

    My weirdest single 3am experience at walmart included :
    1) seeing 2 guys trying to pick up chicks and one was wearing a metal halo to keep his head from moving because he had a broken neck. He also slurred his words. Things were not going well for them.
    2) a coked up girl buzzing around, talking to herself and looking for a green thong.
    3) a woman and her 3 little kids – all 4 in pajamas and slippers. Whatever her story was it seemed more sad than anything else.
    4) a woman trying to sell me her foodstamps – I asked why and she said so she could buy crack. At least she had an honest streak.
    5) at the checkout, the woman in front of me tried to reach into the register and swipe a handful of cash but the clerk slammed the drawer shut and gave her a “what the hell do you think you’re doing” look. The woman smelled like pot and had that verbal twitch of someone on antipsychotics and started screaming “Oh god! Oh god! Please, don’t call the police! No! No!” and started throwing out excuses “I didn’t mean to”, “it was an accident”, “I need the money” etc. And she started crying or pretending to cry. The clerk asked her if she knew stealing was wrong (she did). The clerk asked if she had the money to pay for her bags of stuff (she did). So the clerk explained that she needs to pay for her stuff and then the cops won’t get called.

      Jeez, Colonel. My Wal-Mart must be in a more upscale ‘hood.

      No, it wasn’t in the best neighborhood. Also, it was a small city and the only things open at 3am were bars, the strip club, a Perkins and Walmart – and I suspect because people could hang out at Walmart for free it attracted a peculiar crowd.

    Walmart failed in Korea. Not sure if this is a sleight against the US or Korea, though.

Well, SAY something...
