things that happen at wal-mart

These two things happened to me at the Wal-mart yesterday:

One - while walking into the store, a man stopped his car, rolled down his window, and said, "You tha finest white woman I eva saw." Not sure how much that had to do with being a "fine white woman" or just plain being a woman. He's probably had a lot of practice with that line, or ones like it. (Side note: I've had a similar experience at Publix, but the line was, "Girl, I like the way you wear those jeans!" Sleazy.)

Two - while perusing the produce, I was stopped by a pre-teen Hispanic girl who said, "Um, I really like your eyes. My mom always wanted a child with light eyes. They're pretty."

While not bad for my self-esteem, both comments were startling and somewhat creepy. And I hate to tell that girl's mom, but it's probably not going to happen.

You know what I've always noticed every time I go to Wal-Mart? The one I go to is in Chelsea and it has a Subway right as you walk in. There's always this Subway employee sitting at one of the tables talking on her cell phone and eating a candy bar. I don't know if that's really good or bad, wrong or right, but I have to laugh because it never fails, no matter what time of day I go, there she is.

One of the things I've noticed about Walmart is that there aren't any that are too close to me.

I'm thankful for the lack of temptation to go there.

I hate Wal Mart because no one is ever in a hurry when I am. I mean, dang, I don't have all day to hang out at Wal Mart much less do I want to. Everyone seems to be in slow motion, roamnig around aimloussly. I have though, that some do like Wal Mart and I'm very happy for them but this girl ain't one of 'em. lol

i agree with meighan. why would you just wander around in that store? I mean, "Well, yes hello again, I AM still here. But I have increased the number of products in my buggy and you... well, you don't even have a buggy. You aren't even holding anything. You're just walking around...well, yes, I DO have to go. Good-bye. Yes, I'll probably see you in a few more aisles. And you still won't be holding anything."
