Just got home from Wal-Mart to get some misc stuff. I picked up some for sale signs for my 95 when I park it outside. The cashier was a 28-30yr old guy.

Him: Are you selling something?
Me: Ya...? (I'm thinking, no ***^ sherlock!)
Shouldve said "Heres your sign!!"

As another Wal-Mart worker here, I can really say that many people we hire are just valid social security numbers.

to the 2 posters above....

Its the very reason I can't stand certain people... Both customers and employees.... You'll know the first day weather you can train a person to do a job or not... I have told management many times " I can't teach them what they can't comprehend, we hired another moron evidently.... "

and every now and again I get a chance to say * This ones a Keeper *..... lol

But at the end of the day I hop into the Lazyboy fire it up and do the Vrooooom Vroooom Vroom all the way home because at Pontiac we are driving excitement ....

They don't handle for crap as they have a grandpa like suspension( FE2 just incase you want to fly around the off ramp while the guy in the Grand Cherokee is trying to stay with you as he knows you can't outperform him in the handling department.... Meanwhile you look back to see him on 2 wheels )... The seats suck( 12 way power.... What more could you want... Some even have a But setting for warm or fire )..... But hey we all know Big cars don't handle, just look at the intrepid, now thats a car...( Pile of Junk, I'd kill myself if I was reduced to a Intrasludge 2.7 )....

Yeah I like My Bonnevilles
LOL. Amen.
