It's a little strange, but I feel the spirit of Sam Walton every time I go into Walmart. I use Walmart for little things like soap, tooth paste, shavers and things like paint, etc.
Every time I go into Walmart I get good prices on the items I purchase, but when I return home, without fail a bag is missing. Two days ago, I bought specialty soap that doesn't test on animals, and when we returned home, the soap was missing so we had to go back to Walmart yesterday and buy the soap again.
While we were there we had to purchase other items. a package of woman's shavers. Now this morning, Easter Sunday my wife needed her shavers and of course they went missing too. I think Walmart makes so much money because the Spirit of Sam Walton is around each ad every Walmart.

That place resembles nothing of what Mr. Walton accomplished in his lifetime. It's a cold lifeless pit of hell... Back when he was running things, everything in there was "Made in America" and they were damn proud of it, now it's all made in China, and the stockholders couldn't be happier.

I don't do Wal-Mart so I wouldn't feel Sam's presence.

I felt Sam Walton's presence recently when I was in a Target, I'm positive it was him. What's up with that?

I can.. it's overwhelming!! I mean, Sam is on every dad-gum street corner as well! Last night when I bought my marshmallow peep rabbits, they were so fresh, they were hoping out of the box!

I do remember a time where Wal-mart sold real bunnies for Easter. I think their fur might have been dyed in different places.. They didn't have a ton of them but they were there in a little pen. Mainly for kiddos.

Use of the turntable method of bagging has it's good and bad points. 2-3 items depending on size may be in a single bag and is left behind unknowningly. I have left items and have some elses item in the past. They cannot afford to make the bags too heavy and lose items broken on the floor.....a cost/safety factor.

I never had these problems with paper bags that could always be reused in the home. Paper was easier to recycle then plastic. Calif is slowly starting to go back to PAPER bags.

At the Wal-mart check-outs, they offer a material bag for a dollar. You can purchase these ( I have five) and they will last for years so there is no need for plastic or paper really, or worrying about holes in plastic bags.

That damn floating smiley face always used to stalk me when I went to Walmart... hiding behind bargain bins or waiting patiently in the ball-box for just the right moment to jump me, give me a wedgie and steal my wallet.

Luckily they sell AR-15's (the last "made in USA" product in the whole store! ) in Utah Walmarts so I managed to "solve" the problem. Thanks ghost-Sam!... and you're welcome.
