So I’m walking through the Wally World parking lot towards my car and a woman up ahead catches my attention due to her loud conversation. As she approaches my direction, I assume she is talking on a blue tooth ear piece since she’s not holding a cellphone. As I pass her, I realize she is in fact talking on the phone. The phone just happens to be stuffed in her tank top. She had the phone on speakerphone and decided there were more economical ways to go hands free when talking on the phone. She continued talking to her chest as she walked into the store.
I never thought I would have a story for POW, I don’t really shop at Walmart. I do occasionally go to a Walmart Neighborhood Market. Which is basically a grocery store only- very few non food products- just the same type of things you would see at a normal grocery store. Anyway this store is in a pretty good Neighborhood, not the type to attract too many Wal-creatures.
I was in the dairy section and this guy (40 overweight) was standing in front of the milk case so I waited, He was just standing there so I decided to go around and circle back to the milk case, as I pass him he has his finger shoved way up his nose, pulls it out looks at it and wipes it on the glass front of the milk case. I decided I didn’t need milk after all, and focused on keeping breakfast down as I walked away.
I took the advice that I have read on POW stay ahead of the gross person so you finish with an isle before they get to it. So I finish my shopping in record time. I go up to the register, and there is only one open and guess who is in front of me. I look around desperately hoping there is another checker that just doesn’t have their light on, but there isn’t. I am standing their convincing myself, that it will be ok, he won’t touch the belt you put the groceries on, I will use a tissue for the debit machine. Just then he reaches down the back of his pants and starts digging. I can’t help it; I say oh my God and retch. He turns around and gives me a disgusted look like I am disturbing him. I abandoned my groceries and won’t be going back.
My friend and I were wandering through the liquor section of Wal-Mart (she was getting wine coolers, I was obediently pushing the cart) when we came across a bottle of vodka that someone had taken a swig or two out of and put back on the shelf.
Later that same trip, we saw someone had left a plate with half a piece of chocolate cake on it sitting on a shelf. I wish someone would had invited ME to that party!
I work at a Wal-Mart and it’s awesome to know that Wal-Mart breeds it’s own specialty brand of customers, even in other states. What more can you ask for? Then have a site that delivers all this epic awesome-ness for everyone to enjoy and laugh it, it’s truely the best thing ever.
