Default Wal Mart Grand Prize winner

A co-worker of mine was telling me a funny story about his fathers recent Wal Mart shopping trip. He was at the register, paying up, when all of a sudden, sirens started blaring, lights flashing. The manager came over with a big smile, checkers all left their registers to come over and congratulate the man for being the one millionth customer at that store location (southern Oklahoma somwhere) Pics were taken, and the grand prize was awarded. The grand prize you ask?

A package of Gummy Bears!

I woulda been so torked at them for wasting my TIME!!!! LOL. ROFL!! I probably woulda handed them back, saying, "go ahead and put em back on the shelf, I would hate to kill your days profit!"

Seems to me if you're gonna single out a customer, make a publicity thing outta it, you could be a LITTLE more classy about the so called grand prize LOL. Lucky for China Mart, my friends dad thought it was hilarous and wasnt upset.

Yea, but If the Sam Walton didnt split the holdings of the company among his three kids The walmart corporation would be worth more than microsoft. I beleive the three children (I beleive its his children) each have 18billion.

Something along those lines, I just know that alltogether walmart > microsoft.
