Wal-Mart is EVIL…

Like Candi, I had a little shopping excursion to Wal-Mart today. Let me just get this out in the open… Wal-Mart is EVIL. I had some items to return – a purse I didn’t want because I bought the Nine West one instead, LipFinity red lipstick that was too orange-y in normal light, a sweater and some flannel jammie pants that didn’t fit right (that’s what happens when you don’t try them on first!) and a copy of “Unbreakable” which Columbia House sent me because I was a dork and didn’t mail the card back in. Yes, I took it to the store and they were happy to give me $20 for it.

Then I went to pick up “a few things”. This is how EVERY experience at Wal-Mart begins. Thank goodness I was limited on time because I had to pick Jason up from his religion class at 10:15. I bought a folding chair for his room because I set the computer up on the computer cart in there last night. I bought “Office Space” for $14.99 (whoo hoo! It was $20 last time I looked!) and “The Cable Guy” for under $10. (I *love* both of those movies!) I got a different color sweater in the right size this time. I got this adorable little lamp for the shelves in my living room for $5. I bought a new plant to go in my beta jar, the other one looks pretty sad. I think that’s it. All for $87. When the cashier said it was $87, I said “Damn!!” She seemed surprised. Sorry, I wasn’t expecting it to be that much!

Since I got home and started cleaning out closets though I started to question my “need” for the new sweater. It’s this burgundy/wine/maroon color that I own 10 other tops in already. I seem to buy a new top every fall that is that color! Of course I look good in that color, so maybe I will keep it. I’ll have to see what all it will coordinate with. Clothes don’t get to stay here if they won’t play nice with others that I already own. Of course I am certified as a member of “Wal-Mart Returnaholics”, the gals at the return counter would probably be hurt if I didn’t return something from today’s purchase!

No, no. Walmart IS EVIL. They underpay their employees, hire employees UNDER a certain intelligence level, undercut labor, drive small business out of town, and promote “sameness” in local communities. Please don’t go to Wal-Mart again. Think about HOW MANY PEOPLE will have that same sweater, plant, etc. if you must. Please.
