OK but how do you explain a Walmart auto service employee (I'm not sure what the actuall term for them is, I mean no disrespect, but you know what I mean) telling someone that the reason they were charged for a new gas cap along with there oil change is because GM recomends changing your gas cap with every oil change?

No this didn't happen to ME, no one touches my car but me, but I heard the conversation.

Correct. I'm fat (5'8" 230lbs) and I park at the end of the lot not only to walk, but to keep my car from getting dented up. I hate when I see fat people like me circle the lot over and over and over and over and over until they find a spot 5 feet closer to the door. People need to just park and walk to the damn door.
hah, me too, im pretty big too, (6'1'' 290 lbs) and I love parking at like the VERY end of the parking lot...(unless raining or snowing or something) it is really nice...i love giving the circlers dirty looks (i've almost been hit like 10 times) actually one time i was hit, i was walking in between the cars (in front of them up the lane) and some A$$HOLE came cruising right through a double open space at like 20 mph and that throws me up on his hood...OMG, i was SO FU*KING PISSED...(late 90s dodge neon)i got off his hood, did not say anything, walked over to his door and kicked his door in and then the back one,(thank god i was wearing my steel toes that day) went around the other side, took my pocket knife (blunt end) and smashed his front passenger window, and said, "have a nice day!". My god, that was fun, but my knee still hurts from that day...

so yeah that is my walmart rant...

EDIT: oh and if anyone is wondering where that happened:

Wal-Mart Supercenter Store #1982
955 North Mutual Way
Appleton, WI 54913
(920) 954-6300

hah, good times

how about this:
"Your cars f-ed up. Go somewhere else."

heres a story that p'ed me off. it happened at my work, while i was there.
two very large ladies parked in a handicapped spot, WALKED in, and proceeded to ask the nearest associate for a manager. after complaining that there werent enough handicapped spaces (we looked, their car - not handicapped), insisted that we procure an electric cart for them to use. we dont have them, we provide wheelchairs to help, but by no means are we expected to have motorized carts. thats walmart. when the manager didnt make one appear from thin air, they demanded use of both of our wheelchairs. im thinking: great. so when someone who'* genuinely disabled comes in, we wont have any wheelchairs because these two women are using them. thats not all though. THEY HAD MANAGEMENT WHEEL THEM AROUND THE STORE FOR OVER AN HOUR while they did their shopping. did i mention that they also had a 20-something female only moderately overweight with them? and yet management still had to wheel them around. and to cap it off, they GOT UP from the wheelchair and walked out to their car.

hats off to my manger that dealt with them, because i would have refused and told them to wheel themselves around.

i am afraid i cant explain that

that really happened?

just today, i had a parking lot wonder. i decided to drive THROUGH the parking lot today <dont know what i was thinking> and slowly manage the traffic, both auto and pedestrian. about 2/3rds the way through the store, the Ram infront of me, turns on her right signal and stops. i look around, and spot a spot that people are loading stuff in the car <bout half a basket left>. i got stuck behind them, and end up blocking a mid 80'* towncar in the row <generic grandma edition, full package>. bout a minute later, gramma starts honking. i got tired of it, and turned on the radio, and smiled at the chaos i was in the middle of. then another horn sounded <dunno who>. people started getting pissed, and then the truck moved <aborting the space wait>. i drove through like nothing happen, then left. it is so funny being patient and watching the impatient people fritz. definately makes it worth the wait.

Alright, how about this one? I intentionally did this yesterday when I went to Wal-Fart. I saw 16 year old kids and their friends (are employees) were playing with the handicap scooters. So I got in one and got yelled at. Well, I made a big scene. I told them "How about if I sue this F-ing store for discrimination!?!?" They quietly stepped away from the scooters and walked away beet red. It'* funny how them and their friends can play with them, but if I sit in one, I get yelled at.
