Used to be

"Have you been to Wal*Mart in town lately?"

"Yeah, about once a week. Why?"

"Have you looked around while you're in there?"

"Paul, when I go to Wal*Mart I'm usually dragging 45 or so kids. I don't look around a whole lot unless a kid goes missing."

"Smartass. I mean, have you noticed the store itself? The shelves aren't stocked or faced's just not as classy and nice as it used to be."

"Do you just realize what you said? You just said that our Wal*Mart used to be classy."


"Oh, nevermind."

I know what you mean. But I also know what he means-- they keep them all nice until you're used to that, then they slack off, start hiring rude people, and let the place go to hell.

Wal Mart pisses me off. They act like you HAVE to go there.

I noticed the other night how nasty it was. I even commented on it to Mr.Coach, it could have been on fire and he wouldn't have noticed. They may all match now but the service still sucks, at least you know who to hate when they all look alike. I mentioned that it looked like a Wal-Mart in a third world country, guess with so many migrant workers in the area it pretty much is. (umm..sorry if I offended anyone....kind of)

We....the people
