. did your son get to see you put down that associate? thats good parenting....

I was thinking that , also.

I live in coastal California where we do not have any Walmarts (or any "big box" stores) and I really do miss them. No one can beat their prices for cat food & detergent. I also just like walking up and down the aisles. There is so much to see.

You bring back memories of an aunt of mine when I was a teenager.

Her favorite expression was----" so I told them what I thought"

( she was a real " bearcat" on store employees)

I used to think she was quite opiniionated.
As I got older, I realized she had mental problems.

How about some good news ?

I was to our Walmart Supercenter this afternoon. (23 miles away)

Clerks were friendly, I was friendly, spent $103.62 on groceries and the cashier did a good job packaging.

I left home in a good mood and arrived back home in a good mood.

Nothing extraordinary about today.
It would be extraordinary if it was different from today.

Good to see there are plenty of Walmart "can do no wrong" apologists out there.

No one here is apologizing for Walmart. Now I'm getting annoyed.

One can be right and properly upset saying "my Walmart sucks". "All the Walmarts in my area suck". But to say 'all Walmarts suck and everyone who shops there is an idiot" is all wrong.
It's like saying all Irish are drunks, all blacks are lazy, all Muslims are terrorists, all Jews are rich, all Catholics are going to hell, all Kentuckians are ignorant hillbillies.
Are any of these statements correct?
No.
Some Muslims are terrorists, some Catholics are going to hell, some Irish are drunks. I know a couple of born again Christian women who left their husbands and kids to run away with their ministers. If I know of two personally, there are assuredly more of them, but I would be wrong in saying that born again Christian women are sluts.
No offense meant, born again Christian women. I'm just trying to express a point. No offense meant to any Irish, blacks, Muslims, Jews, Catholics or Kentuckians.
I don't like a place, I just don't go there.

Sorry about that. I just get indignant. I don't care about Walmart as such. I don't know anyone who works there. I just don't think it's right to slam a company or a person over and over just because you don't like them.
In my town I've seen a lot of nasty anti George Bush bumper stickers. Now, I didn't much care for him as president, but it makes me mad to see them over and over again. Some of those stickers look fairly new too. I don't like those vulgar anti Yankees bumper stickers either, and I don't even like baseball.
