I went to Wal-Mart today. I needed milk and a pot. It took me 20 minutes, primarily because people much much bigger than me took up every available bit of space and did not respond to numerous excuse me’s. I am in agreement with Z:
And I think I hate Walmart. I hated it first because it was full of people, then because everything you buy there breaks, because they treat their employees like shit, because they can throw off the global economy if they feel like it, ship jobs to China and exploit workers over there […] Whatever. If everyone has been to Walmart everyone knows what is bad about it. You go because it’s cheap and it’s one stop. But now I can’t even buy anything that is really worth my money. Am I going spend money on this shit? No. I’m going to the grocery store, and the hardware store and I’m going to waste my money on gas after driving all the way out here.
Walmart makes me feel trapped. Trapped between trying to save money because I don’t have much, and trying not to buy the things that don’t cost a lot of money because they’re cheap, shitty things that break and give you health problems. And it seems that I am not alone in this. I wish that no one had to shop at Walmart.
