    Poly rants

    What is it with Wal-mart and stupid people?

    Ok, so I go to WM to get a birthday present for my son's friend. I already had to put up with your typical WM headaches such as people who think they're the only people who matter, blocking the whole aisle so that nobody coming towards them or behind them can pass till they get good and ready to MOVE! The self checkout line was fairly short so at least checking out didn't take quite as long as it usually does on a Saturday. So we're finally headin' to the car. I get the kids buckled in and proceed to put the present in the gift bag. (Yeah, I know, I'm one of those moms who waits to get the birthday present till right before the birthday party. So what of it?) Anyway, I'm fixin' up the gift and this car stops behind me and a little ways down, waiting for me to leave since I had a pretty close parking space and she didn't want to end up parking in the north 40. Cars were lined up behind her all the way down to the front of the store which caused a traffic jam and this lady wasn't about to move. I gave her this look like, "are you kidding me?" So I stopped what I was doing and left so this poor sap could get my place and ended up finishing the gift when I got to the party. This isn't the first time this has happened to me either. Why are people so dumb sometimes?

    You're preaching to the choir, Poly. I cut most of those problems out by shopping at 2am. Hardly anyone around at that time. I realize that that probably isn't feasible for you, but that's just my solution.

    Oh, so it is all wal-marts that are a headache and not just the ones where I live.

    Anyway, around here (Deep South Texas) the problem seems to be terminal laziness.

    We always park far away so we can get the exercise of walking the distance!

    Yeah, I've thought about that. I guess I'm too old. I'd be falling asleep in the aisle.

    As in too lazy to be considerate? It was pretty hot here in Okieville today, and terribly humid.

    Maybe the heat affects the brain.

    I just happened to get really lucky finding one so close. Usually I end up having to park really far out. Sometimes I try hitching a ride down to the entrance so that makes it a little more convenient.

    Yep. Our average temp is over 100 with 90% humidity.

    Sounds likely to me.

    Why mention Wal Mart? It was like this at K Mart (when they were around) and it's like this at Target now.

    What I don't like about Wal Mart is that people think that it's a super cheap store they don't have to respect, and if they mess with the things on the displays they don't have to put keep things in order. I hate walking through the isles with things on the floor or stuff on the shelves that are all out-of-sorts/opened/broken.

    I hear you. I was in Wal-Mart yesterday and tried to get some help from a clerk and the clerk gave me this strange look. The clerk didn't understand a word I said, because she didn't understand English. Only in America.

    It is sad that we must know several languages just to go shopping in America.

    My biggest pet peeve is when people expect me to speak spanish in America just because I am Hispanic.
