I do not like Walmart. In fact, I hate Walmart. It's a monstrosity. Nothing but cheap shite at cheap prices. Their business practices are abhorrent. They preach morality in what they choose to sell but fail to provide benefits or even a living wage to the majority of their employees. Money spent at Walmart is funding the downfall of North America as the economic powerhouse of the world. And the people spending that money are invariably loud, rude, inconsiderate, sub-humans who combine their shopping activities with screaming at two or three of their unwashed off-spring as they run wild through the aisles. Fuck Walmart.
But, hey, I needed a cheap bookcase.
So, there I was after work. It was mercifully empty thanks to the snow storm. I went and picked up my bookcase. And then I saw an end table that would work for my entrance way. And then I remembered I still needed a waste basket for the main floor bathroom. And speaking of bathrooms, I was also in need of some toilet paper. On the way over to the toiletries section I passed by the Blu Ray display and had to pick up Zombieland and The Hangover. The toilet paper was over in the mega grocery area and I saved a couple cents on a 4 pack of Blue Monster while I was over there. All that snow had me thinking about my snowmobile and how I'd left my jerry can up in Haileybury. Back to automotive to pick that up and grabbed a bottle of snowmobile oil too. I thought about picking up some steaks to really mix it up but I was nearing my exposure limit for one trip.
A remarkably diverse and successful shopping trip. But still. Fuck Walmart.
