If you live in the ghetto and shop at Walmart you can not expect to live a drama free life.

Also, I couldn't help but notice that two or your incidents occurred at Wal-Mart. So you know, Wal-Mart in the city ain't nuthin' like a Wal-Mart in the country. In the country, Wal-Mart is the new Main Street. It's where all the locals gather to meet and discuss the weather, buy shotguns and whittle wooden figures from sticks. In the city, Wal-Mart is a wretched hive of scum and villainy. It's where the degenerates breed. Go into a city Wal-Mart at 2 in the morning, and you'll find what can best be described as a zoo where all the animals have been released from their cages. Start shopping at Target. You'll grow to like the city again.
...and these are not the droids you're looking for.

Wal Mart is so frustrating. I don't mind paying a few extra bucks for things just to avoid going there.

Somebody either didn't do a whole lot of research when making a move, or is telling us an entertaining story.

I was thinking of making a short film where I do a lot of sensational accounts of crime and debauchery in the city, and I thought I'd name it...*makes Dr. Evil pinky-to-mouth gesture* "The Nightly News."

Want to audition?

Alvin recently had a shooting at an apartment complex (not the one I used to live in, but I saw just as much drama there as I do where I am now) and the half-inch thick glass around the front counter at that Exxon station on Highway 6@FM 1964 in Santa Fe isn't for decoration.

Weston Lakes in Fulsher would be a straight shot on the westpark toll way, that's your best bet. I'm sure you can find some rentals in Fulsher.
