Look…I realize that there are gonna be times when I just have to bite the bullet and go to Wal-Mart…also known as the most reviled shopping store in the world. I have my own reasons for hating Wal-Mart. Most people either love it or hate it. I would take Target over Wal-Mart any day of the week. Is Wal-Mart cheaper? Probably. Is it closer to my home? Yes. Is there more to choose from? I guess.
So why would I rather drive farther to pay more for less selection of stuff?
Because…Wal-Mart is a freakin’ freak-a-thon, that’s why.
I hate passing judgment on people that I don’t know. Wait…let me rephrase that…
I don’t mind passing judgement on people I don’t know when they are dressed in sleeveless shirts with dragons down one arm and a naked lady on the other and they have on a Budweiser hat and have only 4 teeth (I think…couldn’t get close enough) and the guy next to her keeps calling her “Roxy”. But the OTHER people who are at Wal-Mart are just…well…angry, bitter and smell funny.
Am I wrong? What is it with that place? The people are just scary. And it doesn’t seem to matter where I go, there is always someone in my way. They need GPS systems for their carts there or something because I could literally be all by myself in the CD section and then, out of no where, I’m blocked in on all sides and I have to wait while Ma & Pa Jones decide which Willie Nelson Live CD is different from the other. Just so they know…THEY ARE ALL THE SAME!
So today I needed birthday gifts for a 6 & 7-year old. 2 kids that I don’t even know! And I am left with the responsibility of shopping with MY 2 children (who I know very well and I KNOW all they care about is what I can get THEM!) and finding gifts for these 2 kids who I have met maybe twice? Or in the case of the 6-year old…never!?
Yeah…I hate my life right now. AND I HATE Wal-Mart!
So, you might be asking yourself, how did I end up there? Why not Target? Good question, dear reader.
No choice. The toy store down the road is closing (which I didn’t know) and I had no time to make a run to Le Target. Had to do some down & dirty shopping and get er done. So mission accomplished! But not without a headache and some swear words being uttered under my breath…
Have I mentioned that I hate Wal-Mart? Oh…I have? Okay then…
