Another Walmart thread

Shopping for Politicians

This really pisses me off. Sometimes I really hate how our government works.

I know this thing happens all the time with other companies and they arnt the first to do it. I just hate things they do like when a town passes a law to not allow supercenters so Walmart takes them to court and drags it out till they have no more money to fight it and give up. If you arnt wanted there then DONT BUILD A STORE THERE! I know someone who is a district manager at walmart and he has told me some really crazy stuff about the policies the corporate office has and things that were obviously immoral he has had to do because he was under pressure from higher ups and his job was on the line.

there was also this guy that hides underneath cars and licks women's feet in the parking lot...

i'm a poor college student....wal mart is to expensive for me, so it's Big Lots and Kroger for me (with that nice discount card)

Focus is the ability to believe in your goal even as your path twists and turns.

Its all about the money. If you need something. You spread the money around to those that can help you accomplish the goals at hand.

Yeah they say they don't want them... then everyone shops there... People like the idea of not having a supercenter, but once it's there they all start using it...

That's the thing... People try to teach Wal*Mart this 'lesson' by passing legislation banning them only to lose their collective a$$e$, then they start shopping there!!! If they really wanted to stick it to the man, they would allow Wal*Mart to build, then boycott...

I dont like shopping at Walmart because, not only do the shoppers look like trailer trash, the people that work there look like trailer trash. I have no ill feeling for poor people, but come on, brush your teeth, comb your hair, take a bath, use deodorant, and wash your clothes! Have some self respect.

I look at it this way, if they gave up 2 cartons of smokes a month, they would have more than enough dough to properly groom themselves.

You may not be lowlife, but you enjoy shopping with lowlifes Bet you also enjoy that happy face Walmart employee greets you with Most Walmart employee's hate working at Walmart
I will gladly pay few cents more to shop without lowlifes
Side note, Walmart has lowest average income shopper of any chain store.
Walmart making politicle payouts for its own best interest. Walmart instead of paying decent benefits and wage, counsel's employees how to have tax payer pay these benefits, with food stamps and public medical.
