This whole "you must be jealous if you deride a rich person" thing must stop.

Some of us are very happy with our lots in life... and I'm sure if most of us could take a pill to be born into a billionaire family, we would.

I don't know of any sane person who takes issue with someone earning more money than someone else. EARNED. That's the key word. The Walmart folks are not EARNING it through their own labour... they're EARNING it by utilizing their power to keep others powerless. There is no genius entity on the Walmart board EARNING billions... it's greed and an artificial appointment at the top of the food chain that's doing the work.

Walmart got where they are by being smart businesspeople and ignoring jealous non-performers like this poster who sit on the sidelines and shoot down anyone who is successful.

I have been shopping at Walmart for almost 20 years and plan to continue doing so and see no reason to stop now.

They have terrible, broken down, wobbly shopping carts.
The hand baskets are sticky and feel dirty.
The checkout lines are frustrating, with many registers but only a few open.
The clientele is ghetto - see "People of Walmart".
The shelves are often empty of certain items. I might have a list of 20 things, and 5 will be completely out of stock.
The merchandise is scattered, messy, and in disarray on the shelves.
Often times items do not have prices listed.
The produce section is weak and sad. Often times they won't even have certain vegetables I need.
The bakery is sad.
The meat department is sad.
There's always a cop car parked out front.
The parking lots are dirty with carts everywhere.

It's hard to find American and European products in Walmart. Everything is made in China and similar locations.

Even clothes. Who wears clothes made in China?!?!?!?

If you don't like how they treat their workers, not shopping their isn't gonna make this any better.

I usually buy things I don't really care about the quality of at Walmart.. mostly generics.

100 people waiting to be checked out in 4 lanes. Nuff said because that makes no sense at all!

I'm not asking for lighting fast checkout because that's nowhere but GD that's just not right. Walmart has what 30 lanes?

There are never more than 5 open. People do heavy duty shopping so you have 4 sets of people in front of you with a basket overflowing with items and stuff in their arms and 3-5 lanes open? F that and you Walmart.

Target's the same but people don't have that much stuff in the freaking basket.

There's almost always
