Have you seen the People of Walmart website? Hysterical! Particularly for me – if you knew my high school self, you would know that I worked at the hell that is known as Walmart. Seriously, it wasn’t fun for me – I spent my whole first summer being called “Amanda” by one of the cashier supervisors. You know, because she was INCAPABLE OF READING MY NAME TAG WHICH CLEARLY SAID “MICHELLE.” Among the other snarky things that happened to me… That being said, my lil bro works at a Walmart, and doesn’t appear to find it that bad – probably because he doesn’t get worked up over little stupid things quite like I do.
Anywho, I don’t go to Walmart in the LA metro area because they are generally truly horrible…instead, I frequent Target, especially the one near my work. (I do feel compelled to hit up Wally World whenever I’m back in the Midwest, though.)
And while I have yet to witness some people as bizarre as those made infamous on People of Walmart, Target has it’s fair share of the crazy.
Thus, I feel it is my duty to share with you…and as soon as I get an iPhone, I can supplement these stories with pictures.
The following came from my visit today…
Dear 30-something chick:
It’s not advisable to wear a white linen mini skirt with a blue thong underneath. Unless, of course, you have some sort of compulsion to have everyone to stare at the ba-donka-donk…because then you succeeded.
Dear Obviously Wealthy Couple (who looks out of place, btw):
Don’t get mad at the Target people when they won’t let you bring your Irish Setter, which is obviously not a service dog, into the store. Health code violations abound. Just because you’re rich doesn’t mean the Target people are stupid and will bend the rules for you. Plus, it’s a dog…it doesn’t need to ride around in a shopping cart, even if they did allow you to bring it in the store.
