Default Wal-Mart Rants

I have to admit, of all the places i hate to be, Wal-Mart is one of them. ironically, i work in wal-mart. encountering walmart everyday has led to a rant or 2 being performed in the following space:

The Parking Lot. yes, the parking lot. there are more morons in that parking lot at any given time, than elsewhere in the city combined. i was talking to a cart pusher that had been there for 2 months, has already been hit 3 times. i swear, instead of making people take defensive driving courses because of tickets, they should make the person go from one end of the parking lot to the other <like going through every row> and pass them if they are able to manage avoiding being hit. i am a generic teen driver. on the gas, on the brakes, tearing the crap out of my car <which has held up quite nicely BTW>, but one of the few places i am actually sane is a parking lot. you need to be. there are people tearing through there worse than i do on the streets on a bad day. one of these days i will be backing out of a parking spot <granny style, its the only way> and kill one of them people that are going so fast they cant stop, and im gonna enjoy it. nothing like the butt of a tempo in your door . so please, if you are going to walmart, act civilized in the parking lot.

The restrooms. i know the maintinance guys. i watch them put the sign on the restroom door saying it is closed for cleaning. boom, one person goes in. then another. after the third person goes in, he gets pissed, and stands in front of the door. 2 more people show up. "can i go potty please?" "NO" "but i really need to potty" "use the restrooms by the <what ever he isnt ready to clean>" "<generic youre stupid look and walk away with an additude>". remember, the sign says the restroom is closed. not closed to everybody but YOU.

thats all i can think of for now.

I don't go in WalMart unless I'm buying something. I don't even go in to look, I'll send a brother in, then go buy what I want.

I have a walmart, thankfully not a super, right down the road from me. I always see idiots exiting from the 'in' road, stopping at an intersection where they don't have the stop sign, running the stop sign where they do have it.... and lets not talk about stopping for pedestrians in the crosswalk (state law); I've nearly been hit twice.
One lady was so close her mirror hit my hand. She was soo trying to pretend she didn't see me, looking dead straight ahead to avoid making eye contact so I yelled and gave her roof a good dent with my fist and she still wouldn't stop or look.

Our Wal-Mart is new..about a year old...and its ghetto too...we mostly use it to play Tag @ night...sometimes Target

and the Parking lot at target is worse over here....for one thing the parking spaces are for Toyota Echos....they are literaly that small....so usually i park near the back and take 4 spaces + all the other issues previuously mentioned about idiots

The closest Wal-mart to me is 15 minutes away from New Hampshire International Speedway, try going in there on one of the two weekends a year NASCAR is at the track

My gripe is the people that have to bring the whole F'ing family in.

Or the people that meet three long lost friends and have a social in the middle of chips and soda aile. I swear didn't Jeff Foxworthy say "If you can go shopping at walmart and end up having a family reunion, you might be a Redneck"?

And look. if your *** is four feet wide, don't walk side by side with another person who has a four foot wide ***!!!!!!!!!!! I know, some of you can't help your size, thyroid problem and what not But you and your friend are a slowly walking road block, just think of the fire hazzard.

And what the HELL is with that morning cheer?

Our store is a fire hazzard with no one in it... If the fire marshall looked around above the cieling tiles really well the store would be shut down... Its nuts...

We had a remodel, and they took the fire suppression out of the exahust hood in the baker as well as the fan motor but left the damn hood..


This store was intended to be a Wal Mart not a Stuper Center... So aomewhere along the line they decided that it would be a Stuper Center, and tossed on the Grocery side... We run on 100% power pretty much all of the time... In the past during thunder storms we have evaporated Transformers and had to shut the store down...

I refuse to support big retail businesses like Walmart, who care more about making a quick buck than the customers or the employees for that matter.

They never get my business, no matter how cheap their prices are.

I'll spend 30 cents more on toothpaste at a business that treats me well.
