This happened 4 or 5 years ago at a normal Walmart, not a Super Walmart. I was running late for a birthday party and still needed a card and a gift, so I went to Walmart and quickly picked something out. Then I went to the fast lane. When I got there I was first in line, but there was someone else’s stuff there… then the guy came back in a second after I was standing there. I let him go first, since his stuff was there, but he wasn’t. He thanked me.
After his stuff was checked out, he handed the clerk a pamphlet and went into a big speech if Jesus hasn’t saved her yet, he sure can. Within a moment of him trying and her shaking his head, the manager came there. The manager threw him out, because he was pushing his pamphlets to all of the checkout girls and that’s where he was when I arrived, giving the pamphlets to the checkout clerks.
As he was being thrown out, he made a big scene yelling that Jesus will save the unholy souls of everyone at Walmart! The manager said, “That’s it, I’m calling the cops. I’m tired of dealing with you…what’s it been, 6 times you’ve done this?”
I checked out and bolted while the manager had the guy sitting in a chair next to the door. The manager stood there watching with the guy seated.
After a mere 80 days on the job, 39-year-old Brian DeAngelis is no longer the athletic director at the Texas A&M University-Kingsville.
According to the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, last Sunday, while answering an unrelated shoplifting call, a policeman saw DeAngelis fleeing a southeast San Antonio Walmart, pursued by the angry mother of a 14-year-old girl.
The cop halted DeAngelis, and the mom caught up. She claimed that DeAngelis had a cellphone camera attached to his shoe and that he had maneuvered his foot under her daughter’s dress.
As his wife looked on, at first, DeAngelis attempted to claim that he had been merely tying his shoe. He even turned and voluntarily gave the cop his phone — which by then he had presumably removed from his shoe.
The cops called his bluff and found an upskirt video of a teenager’s underwear.
DeAngelis was charged with improper photography, a state-jail felony punishable by up to two years behind bars, and released on $5,000 bail.
“It’s not a good situation at all,” understated TAMUK chief of staff Randy Hughes last week. “It’s not something you want to happen. It does happen. The university considered it serious. And we are gonna have to move on.”
That TAMUK did. By Wednesday, DeAngelis’s firing from the school was official, and gone was the $110,000 salary he had just started drawing as the head of the Javelinas athletic department. An interim AD is now running the program while TAMUK seeks a permanent replacement.
Prior to that job, DeAngelis held the same position at East Central Oklahoma University, where he added ladies’ golf and volleyball programs to the multi-directional school’s sports menu. He also spent seven years working in lesser positions at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. In a sense, his career went from TAMUCC to TAMUK to UPCHUK.
In 1994, DeAngelis graduated from Florida Southern College, where he was a four-time MVP for the cross-country team.
DeAngelis and his wife have two daughters.
ROXBORO, N.C. — A man accused of snatching the purse of a sleeping elderly woman in the Roxboro Wal-Mart last month is due in court Monday morning.
Roxboro police arrested Kenneth Lamont Vaughan, 42, of 1913 Morehead Ave. in Durham, after he was identified from security video from the store. In the video, a man is seen leaning over a sleeping Queen Walters, 76, looking around and then taking her purse.
Walters had been using a scooter to shop at the store, at 1049 Durham Road, when she became groggy from medication she was taking.
The thief made off with her keys, credit card, license, a significant amount of cash and medication.
Vaughan is charged with felony larceny from a person and was being held in the Person County jail on $1 million secured bond.
He is scheduled to appear at 10 a.m. in District Court in Wake County.
I noticed your book, “People of Walmart” at Barnes & Noble today. A Barnes & Noble that is in a shopping mall that is — right next to a Walmart.
So while I’m briefly browsing the book, a couple with a baby in a stroller happen along the aisle. The father was wearing a red t-shirt that had the words “Hail Satan Motherf*cker” (without the asterisks) on the back, and the mother was wearing skimpy little shorts with legs that one typically only sees on out of shape football players or professional wrestlers.
And they proceed to crouch down, take the baby out of the stroller, and change its diaper right there. This despite the fact that Barnes & Noble has restrooms with baby changing stations.
The irony of what I was reading and what I was seeing was not lost on me, and it seems the “People of Walmart” are spreading…
