Not that I have anything against the retailer themselves. They sell decent goods (mostly) at low prices. I wish that they had more products that are made in the US, but that doesn’t go with the low price thing so much, so there it is… I generally avoid the place, but I am partial to their cheap tennis shoes, which I consider as disposables for working in the yard and such.
What I hate are the people at Wal-Mart. Not the clerks and stockers, but the customers. Generally they are either self centered (stop to chat in the middle of the aisle, and block anyone behind them while they discuss their teeth or whatever with someone they haven’t seen in a week or so) or massively overweight, unable to control either their hips or the cart, and colliding with anyone/anything that isn’t actively dodging them. (now you know why Wal-Mart has such wide aisles)…Or they are stupid enough to make a cow look like a rocket scientist…..I am talking inbred sub cattle stupid. And generally slow in their motions as well as their cognitive processes…..3 toed sloth slow…..Turtles in snow slow. And let us not even go into the interesting and varied modes of dress.
I feel like I lost 30 IQ points in there, and at least 10% of my life force.
I’m not sure it is worth it to save $20 on a pair of cheap sneakers.
