Standing My Ground

Friday, August 10, 2007

About the only thing that I look forward to when I think about the kids going back to school is going to Wal*Mart for Back To School Shopping. We go to Wal*Mart every second Saturday, but it is a fast in and out trip becuase we have so much to do!

Only once or twice a year, do I get to wander around the splendor that is Wal*Mart for as long as it takes; the end of August for school supplies and End of October for Christmas Gifts.

In preparation for tomorrow, when I will spend hours and hours among the screaming and unwashed masses, I did my nails.



You see.

I LOVE Wal*Mart.

And nothing you can type will ever change my mind.

::sigh:: I was so hoping we were going to become great friends, but the Wal-Mart thing is almost a total deal-breaker!

I think the only company on the planet that is more evil than Wal Mart is Halliburton.

Jester I'm not an expert, but I believe that deep down, you too are in love with Wal*Marts Lower prices ever day and shining yellow smiley face. Maybe with some hypnosis we can bring you back from the dark side?

Dude, believe me, I was upset with this whole third thing too. Its rude for these other people to cut in front of me.

Don't people know that I am the BPR Queen of Firsties?

Who can afford to hate Wal-Mart? I checked and I'd pay twice as much for groceries at any other store in town.

I need yellow nail polish. That's cool.

I don't shop at Wal Mart. If Sam Walton could see what they had done to his stores, he would die all over again!

On my last trip to Seattle I spent hours in the Wal Mart near my hotel and loved it.

The kids don't have to know that the souvenirs I bought came from 'bargain shopper's heaven', do they?

Sheila I think you should start wearing your crown when you come over..have you got a scepter?

Mr.Fab OHO! the truth comes out!

Marylin big shock, but i get most of my nail polish at Wal*Mart. Its cheap and good!

Not a Granny I weep for you. Think of all the cute bras you could be buying the girls for 1/3 of the price you are paying now!

Miss Ann If i didn't wear a tube top when I was 105 pounds, I'm for sure not going to be wearing one now LOL

Angry When I am having a bad day, I like to drive into the city and wander around Wal*Mart until closing time. Wal*Mart is my friend.

I wouldn't mind Walmart if ours didn't suck so bad. Forty-five minute wait at a minimum, every time.

ooh blue, I am about to make your wildest dreams come true...move on down here and you can be the super lucky girl to do my incessant "Super" Wal Mart shopping, as I am in the damn place 3 or 4 times a week.

Really it's ok...I won't mind.

There's nothing I can type to make you hate walmart, but I bet the video I have can change your mind. They are evil.

Well, I guess Wal-Mart is better than a kick in the ass. But only on a really good day.

Wal-Mart is good. Actually anyplace that has the cheapest prices is okay with me!


I'm just catching up with things and I'm glad the Kids head is OK. He's too cute for words!

I Love Walmart prices, but I hate all the people in Walmart shoving me around and racing to see who can get what first like it is the last desperate item on the shelf. If I could go shopping in Wlamart, and be the only person walking around buying things that would be a dream come true, oh and I had better have a lotta money in the bank account cause I'm gonna need it.

PS I'll bring the kids sometime in the afternoon (I'm leaving the hubby at home), I may be sleepy but I know I'll always get coffee at your house and not have to make it.

WalMart is always better than a kick in the ass... even if you're into that kind of thing!

No, wait... I'd *rather* spend four times the money on clothes for the kids so they can rip/shred/stain destroy them in countless other ways. I'm just silly that way because we make so much damn money that I can't find enough ways to throw it around.

I'm with you blue.

Hate Wal-mart, hate how they treat their employees, lie to the communities they are coming to, and I could go on and on. But since you don't want to hear it, I'll keep quiet.

Woo hoo! You go girl. I don't like ours because they didn't build it big enough and they have all their overstock in the center aisles so that it is difficult to get around in there. Otherwise, it rocks!
