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.
shoulda grabbed a regular shopping cart and ran over'em all

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

i wouldve been one of the ones honking. not because im impatient, but because people who wait on spaces like that p' me off. just take a farther spot and walk. the 5 extra steps wont kill anyone. and if it does, i promise ill be genuinely sorry.

LOL. My kids used to be a cart boy at the local grocery store. He can does some trickstyle stunts on a grocery cart. He just did one yesterday while we were there so this made me laugh.

ok all, this is duffer26'* other half. He thought that I might get a kick out of reading the Wal-mart rants. And let me tell you this. I've worked for wally world for 13 years now and you guys have nothing on some of the stuff I could tell you about the store I work at. 13 years and I've seen some really gross stuff. Just recently we had a lady go into the ladys dressing room and actuall peed and pood in it and an associate got yelled at for cleaning it up and not following procedure. The associate had to write a note of appology to all the assisant managers so she gave her note to the store manager after he laughed his butt off he told her not to right any notes and he'd take care of it. Can anyone answer me two questions. Why do fat people have to wear stretch pants that shows there guts hanging past there knees? And why the hell can't people watch there kids while they shop? Have any of you walk past the shoe department and see a guy yanking his crank. Sorry to say but I have. Or how about this one you walk out of the building and go to your car and see that the car next to you ( in the associaties parking lot) has a big butt hanging out the windlow and the actions is not a pretty sight. One last story before I get off one night around 10:30 we had this guy come into walmart wasted. And I mean wasted he was wearing nothing but pants and a big purple ugly sumbrero and sitting on the bench by the hair salon he started talking to one of the advertisments in the window and started stripping to it. The guy then fell on the floor and passed out.

Not in Walmart, saw it in K-mart though. Funny thing is, girlfriend I was with didn't even notice she was so intent on finding shoes.


Sumbrero guy though, that I would have liked to have seen

I remember a few years back in the newspaper here, a worker came across a homeless guy wanking in a huge wardrobe (was on sale, had alot of people looking at them) in our local Wal mart. They arrested him and he was extremely drunk!
