Welcome to Walmart

I have a love hate relationship with Walmart.  I love their prices and I hate just about everything else.  I had to venture in today because it is February 11th and well, that means that Breaking Dawn comes out on DVD and yes, I did have to buy it right away.  Sure, I could have gone to Target, but let's face it, Walmart is still cheaper and I am a frugal (ok cheap) person. 
Can't wait til the kiddies go to bed so I can get me some Edward

Since I don't have a Walmart in my town I have to go to the next town over, or "The Hood" as I like to call it.  Seriously, the motto of Brockton is The City of Champions.  Yes, maybe the champions of drug dealers and welfare abusers, but that is about it.  Nine times out of ten when you read about a crime in my town the person arrested lives next store in "The Hood." 

But at any rate, I go into Walmart today and what is the first thing I see when I enter the door?  Condoms!  Yes, right at the entrance.  Ready for all the little kiddies to ask mommy what they are.  I know it is Valentine's in a few days but seriously?  Thankfully, right behind the condoms was a display full of the DVD I was looking for.  Hmm, maybe the condoms were there because some male employee thought maybe his girlfriend would be hot after finally getting to see Bella and Edward have sex. 

So now the DVD is in my cart and I have to run and get some milk.  Yes, I buy milk at Walmart, but don't judge, it is 2 bucks cheaper than the grocery store, you would buy it there too.  There were two people standing in front of the milk cooler arguing.  I think they must have been married because only years of pent up sexual frustration can cause the screaming I saw.  I was going to go back to the front to get them the condoms and tell them to go home and "work" things out, but honestly, they were damn scary.  I just decided it was going to be worth it to spend the extra 2 bucks on the milk.

Next I hit up the card section.  Monday is my dad's birthday and we have a running joke going that for every card giving occasion we get the other a Barack Obama card.  We are both conservatives,  we just do it to piss the other off.  I can't wait until I go up to visit him in Vermont so I can switch his regular toilet paper with the Obama stuff I found.  Yes, I am a bitch.  But back to topic, I am in the card section and there is a kid that couldn't have been more than 4 years old standing there opening up all the cards that have music.  After the first 10 songs or so I was starting to get annoyed.  I am looking around for the adult that was with this kid and there is one NOWHERE.  I go to the next aisle, still no adult.  I am there for about 10 minutes before I finally asked this kid where his parents were.  The kid just stares at me.  So I ask if I can help him.  He starts yelling at me, but I have no idea what the hell he was yelling because he wasn't speaking English.  An employee comes over then and asks what is going on.  I gave a quick run down and the employee told me I should just mind my own business.  WTF!!!!  There is a four year old child alone for and extended period of time at Walmart!!  I am a parent, there are some things that parents just can't do when they see a child in a bad situation.  But I walked off, without my card, or my milk, and at the point I was done with Walmart so I am sad to say that Breaking Dawn was left behind as well.

Now will this be my last trip to Walmart?  I always say it will because some stupid crap happens almost every time I go there.  But I am guessing it won't be, unless I win the lottery.  At least if nothing else, the place gives me new material for my blog.

Oh, and on a side note, I went to Shaws to get my milk and guess what????  They where selling Breaking Dawn, for 2 bucks cheaper than Walmart!!!!  I guess it was meant to be.

See, I wasn't kidding, they really make the stuff.


  1. Yes! I've finally found a blog that hates Wal Mart and Obama as much as I do! Excellent!!

    1. Glad you found me, welcome to my blog!! ANd the "O" word is hated in my house. Check out my post about things I learned on Facebook, you will get a laugh about it there.

  2. I haven't been to a walmart in like 3 years and it's the most wonderful thing in the world!

    Out of curiosity, where does one find "the Chosen One" toilet paper? I know a few people who wouldn't dislike the idea of wiping with that...

    1. There ya go. They also have it at Enjoy!

  3. Oooh I HATED those damn flower sales in High School, I would always send one to some secret crush anonymously(cause I was smart enough NOT to sign my name and get teased unmercifully) and of course I never got any. When I did have a boyfriend(senior year) he also went to a different school so nothing happening there. LOVE the TP, I might have to order me some of that! Great job snaggin' the deal on BD AND dissin' wal mart at the same time! I too have a love/hate relationship w/ Wally world. Luckily we have a TON of other options.
