    "Spandex is a privelege, not a right"

    Loved that line. I actually shop at WM, often late at night, and I have never seen any of those people. And I make it a point to dress appropriately for fear of someone with a cell phone taking my picture bending over the meat case.

    I love the People of Walmart website.

    My DD is always checking that site to see if we are ever on there. I tell her that cover our bodies and wear normal clothing so we will never be on there.

    I have a friend who sends me those pics constantly. I have never seen anyone looking quite that bad at the WalMarts I go too. Guess I'm just not there at the right time. I often wonder if they aren't staged.

    Candy, I've wondered that too, UNTIL I actually started looking for them! They are out there, in our "normal" little towns...

    Oh yes they are definitely out there! Our WM had an employee once who would only work over nights because he considered himself to be a vampire and he dressed the part too. He quit when WM changed their dress code to kaki and navy blue. I guess vampires don't care for those colors. :-)

    The words fit perfectly. Oh I agree, there really are WalMartions you just have to look around and at least one every time. Thanks for sharing.

    The woman in the lime-green dress made me want to poke my eyes out.

    I'm convinced this store exists so that MIB aliens have a place to shop. LOL

    Not really--we have a guy who dresses that a lady that is one of our store clerks. My daughter refuses to go in his/her line.

    Whenever I see someone like that I say to my husband, "That person must not have any friends, because a friend would tell you how bad you look in that outfit."

    We have 2 Walmarts and you will see people like that at one WM if you go late at night. We make it point to not go to that WM at night. LOL!!

    A few years ago I was sent to a small country town to sell meat in a Walmart - usually we get people eating all the samples... Well that one we had real problems - no one would try the meat... Then one old man came up - he tried the meat - then he lit up in a big toothy smile - He said he just got his new teeth and would we help him pick out some meat. Then we started paying more attention to the people walking by. Not many had teeth but they all had facial hair - including the men... The clothing and how they were wearing it was pretty entertaining. I wonder where they buy it??? At another store we saw an older man had on a pair of bib overalls and the back was torn from the butt pocket down a good ways. He wasn't wearing ANYTHING else - don't ask me how I could tell that.

    My son used to dress like a cowboy. He wanted a cowboy shirt so I made him learn to sew it. He would go all dressed up - everywhere. Some times while he waited for me to use the girls room he would sit on the bench like he was a statue. People didn't know what to make of him all dressed like that and sitting very still. One Halloween we were in WM and they were having a contest. He won. First prize. I never once lost him... All I had to do was ask about anybody if they saw a cowboy.

    I love shopping at Walmart. I never know what I will see or find. It's always entertaining and many times I have a great conversation with someone. I do get irked with the amount of people that bring their whole family to shop for groceries and then the whole family gets in the check out line. ?

    omigosh, that made me laugh. You didn't say how old your son was. Ten? Twenty five?? Forty???

    The video finally pointed out to me, tho, why I don't like to shop at WalMart. It's too scary.

    :lol:

    Oh, that hurt my eyes. But I couldn't stop looking. I'll be paying more attention next time at the store.
