My family lived in a tiny North Carolina town where a Walmart was the only store that did not sell quilted objects exclusively. So, even though we hated it, Walmart was our store. One day, I was at the store with my mom. We were getting ready to check-out and the line was quite long. I was hot and tired and driving my mom crazy so she sent me to sit on the bench while she paid.
I sat down, trying to see if my mom was going to buy me some candy, when an old man came and sat down next to me. He was wearing a trucker hat and had the biggest belly I had ever seen. He leaned in and said, “Hey little lady, you wanna see something cool?” I look at him and tentatively nod my head. “Alrighty then!” he says and he takes out his FRONT TEETH! I stared at him in horror and he just laughed at me.
I was seven at the time. Walmart benches still freak me out fifteen years later.
A Salinas man accused of trying to sell his 6-month-old baby for $25 Tuesday was assaulted while being held in Monterey County Jail, authorities said.
Patrick Fousek, 38, and Samantha Tomasini, 20, the baby’s mother, were arrested on Wednesday at their residence on the 700 block of East Romie Lane, police said.
Police said Fousek had approached two women and asked to use their cell phone outside Walmart on North Davis Road. After he finished his phone call, they said, Fousek asked the women, who had been playing with the baby, if they would like to purchase his daughter for $25.
Police said Fousek immediately left and went to the car where the mother, 20-year-old Tomasini, was waiting. As the couple drove away, they said, the two women were able to get the pair’s license plate number.
Police said officers found the couple at their home about 1 a.m. Wednesday.
The county District Attorney’s Office said the couple was charged with child endangerment and attempting to dissuade a witness, both felonies. The couple also faces charges of being under the influence of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors.
The couple pleaded not guilty today to charges they tried to sell their 6-month-old baby for $25 Tuesday night outside of Walmart, the District Attorney’s Office said.
The couple is expected to appear in court on July 7.
County sheriff’s Cmdr. Mike Richards said Fousek was assaulted by multiple inmates about 10:15 p.m. on Thursday. Richards said the inmates found out about Fousek’s arrest from watching the news.
He said Fousek received bruises to his face and two broken ribs. He was transported to Natividad Medical Hospital for treatment.
No arrests have been made in the assault, Richards said, which is still under investigation.
When I was pregnant, I decided to go to Walmart at 2 a.m. to get cleaning supplies since I was going crazy wanting to clean. Well most know that a pregnant woman has a super tiny bladder (at least it feels that way). So I ran to the bathroom, and as soon as I walked in I heard this little kid saying “Eww momma that’s stinky. Why your poopies stink so bad?” I had to bite my lip because I was about to die laughing. I did my business and this kid is still complaining about how bad her mom’s poo stinks (she sounded 3 or 4). As I’m washing my hands, they came out the bathroom and the mother was super red from what seemed like embarassment. This kid was still going on about how her poo stinks. Later as I’m in the check out line, they are two ahead of me. The little girl stands up in the cart and tells the check out girl “It’s okay, my mommy got all the stinkys out.”
Okay, so my mom, sis, and I were shopping at the Wal and decided to take a pee break. We decided to go to the one at the back of the store since it was closer. As usual, we took a look under the bathroom doors to see which ones were free. While looking under the handicapped bathroom door, we saw the weirdest thing. Two sets of feet! One set facing out and the other set facing towards the other person. We kinda just figured it was a lady helping her child, but the longer we were in there we started hearing some very strange noises. My first thought was to hurry and get the heck out of there! My mom and sis were thinking the same thing, and as I walked out to wash my hands we just kinda looked at each other like “What is that?”. While we were quickly washing our hands, two girls walked out of the stall (one dressed in a Wal Mart smock!), gave us a little smirk, and walked out. We were in shock, and I couldn’t help but let out my favorite phrase, “Oh my!” It gets better! We walked up to a register to check out, and who is working the line, but little miss bathroom action herself. Her little friend was also standing there talking to her as she worked. Of course they also recognized us. We all just look at each other, and my mom, sis, and I tried really hard not to crack up! Talk about weird!
