Let’s face it; we all have seen the people who obviously don’t have mirrors and/or family and friends to lock them in a basement, and they all seem to congregate at Walmart. It’s not everywhere that you can shop for milk at 10 a.m. next to a 400lb mother of 6 wearing a pink tube top, leopard tights, and hooker heels. Where else can one go to pick up underwear at 3 O’clock in the afternoon and spot the greatest mullet of all time paired with a mustard stained wife beater (which only accents the extreme amount of body hair) and camo pants that were actually used in Vietnam. And if you haven’t run into the 6’2” bull-dyke with a shaved head, rockin a wonder bra, flannel cutoff shirt, and jean shorts at 2 a.m. when you’re there to pick up frozen pizza, chips, and cookies, then you can get the f**k out right now.

We are house hunting around the Savannah area. We've decided that one of the best ways of judging the fit of a community is to go to their Walmart and see what shows up.

I have to admit, if I need something quick and don't want to drive far, I will go into Walmart with no make-up, and dressed as if I was working out in the garden. Shame on me.

I hate WM with a passion, but i'm starting to hate all of these separate threads about WM even more than i hate their stores. Use the search box folks, you'll find plenty of threads already active.

I am so fed up with threads describing the 'typical walmart shopper'. Honestly, I could not care less. I live in an affluent area and YES there is a walmart in the next town. In fact, there is a walmart on one end of the street and target on the other. I've seen MANY of my neighbors shop there. I shop there. Who cares. Enough already. And just to respond to the people who criticize walmart for unsavory business practices...well that can pretty much sum up half (if not more than half) of corporate america. Everyone's out to make a buck at the expense of someone else. I may buy my clothes at the Macy's but I have to buy toothpaste and dish soap somewhere! UGH.

I'm going to let everyone in on a little secret. A few days ago I saw a Wal-Mart delivery truck pull up behind our local store. When the driver walked into the building, I decided that this was my chance. I crawled up onto the back of the trailer, and took a look inside. You are not going to believe what I saw inside. Yep, there was nothing but merchandise. After reading all of the terrible things about Wal-Mart on here I was sure that there was going to be something else, but it was just boxes, and boxes of stuff that you see on the shelves. There were no illegal Mexicans, no dirty rednecks, not even a weirdo in a trench coat.

So, using my powers of deduction, I have decided that contrary to popular belief, Wal-Mart does NOT ship customers to their stores. If you see weirdos, dirty people, and rednecks at your local Wal-Mart, they already live in YOUR neighborhood. They are not being shipped in. They are your friends, neighbors, and relatives. They may even be you. If you have a problem with that, maybe it's time to reconsider your location. Maybe it's time to move to the higher class neighborhood that you think that you deserve.

I am NOT the type of Wal-Mart shopper the OP described, but it gave me a good laugh because of a telephone discussion I was having with a friend just a couple days ago. I'd been home all day and was telling her that I needed to go get groceries at Wal-Mart but had to shower and wash my hair, do makeup, etc. before I could go anywhere (Mind you, Wal-Mart was my ONLY destination.). She thought I was deranged. LOL

She finally convinced me to just get dressed, throw on a little mascara and lipstick and run a brush through my hair and assured me no one would notice, and she was right. Looking around at some of the other shoppers made me laugh at myself for even worrying what anyone else would think.

This is why women should not take men shopping against their will.

After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunately, my wife is like most women - she loved to browse. Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from the local Wal-Mart:

Dear Mrs. Hall,

Over the past six months, your husband has been causing quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against Mr. Hall are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras.

1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people's carts when they weren't looking.

2 . July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.

3. July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women's restroom..

4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, 'Code 3 in House wares. Get on it right away.'

5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&M's on layaway..

6. August 14: Moved a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area.

7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told other shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department.

8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, 'Why can't you people just leave me alone?'

9... September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.

10. September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.

11. October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while loudly humming the ' Mission Impossible' theme.

12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his 'Madonna look' by using different sizes of funnels.

13. October 9: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled 'PICK ME! PICK ME!'

14. October 14: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed 'OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!'

And last, but not least . . . .

15. October 16: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, then yelled very loudly, 'Hey! There's no toilet paper in here!'
