Wal-Mart Shoppers Are Kinda Scary

A new(ish) website getting a lot of attention lately shows some pretty freaking hilarious photos of people shopping at Wal-Mart. If you haven’t seen it, People of Wal-Mart can pass the time in an enjoyable and frightening way.

    Thank you for reminding me of that old statement by H. L. Menken:

    “no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people.”

    I’m sure that executives at Wal-Mart aren’t too thrilled with this blog – even though this is a very funny picture.

    How or why did Wal Mart happen? Who should we blame? Are we past the point where recovery is even possible? This really turns the theory of evolution inside out.

    I avoid Walmart like the Plague.
    Pure White Trash permeates the shopping experience, that has the Worst Customer Service.
    I’ll take Target any day over this “Scary” retail operation.

    This is just a opportunistic event to slant a story. When this guy left Wal*Mart and went to Wendy’s, it doesn’t brandish Wendy’s and complicit in some deviant behavior! This guy has to buy household items and eat just like the rest of us. I highly doubt the shirt was bought @ Wal*Mart. Worse yet, who do you think he voted for!!

    The worst time to go to WalMart (if there IS one worst time over another) is on a Sunday afternoon around 1 p.m. It seems like all of the churches empty out into the WalMart….and, apparently, these people decide they have seven more days to act like idiots before they have to go to church again.

    Good Morning.
    America being the land of capitalism is fine, however, when you have an establishment like WalMart that allows to foster and harbor the poor quality of products from other third world nations you get a very disposable society.
    Americans do not know quality when they see it.
    Unfortunately, you have too many have not than haves and the poor will continue to rule with the WalMarts of this world.
    I have been in a WalMart late one night around midnight and was appalled at the site of derelicts, poor, and families with little babies in diapers that should be home asleep.
    Instead of buying good quality food they were buying gross fatting foods. No wonder America is a nation of fat people….
    We need to boycott WalMart,again,however, the poor will prevail…
    That is hurting this nation with the poor multiplying in alarming rates and the quality of intelligence decreasing allowing for the WalMarts to take hold of society.
    WalMart in this country has become a society.

    SORRY for the rant BUT America NEEDS to wake up and take back their country from WalMart, Illegals and the government.

    This does not surprise me. I’ve told my friends for years if you ever feel down or depressed, walk into a Wal-Mart and take a look around at the people in the store. You will leave feeling better about yourself and your circumstances.

    Walmart unfortunately has been a major contributor to the “dumbing down” of America, right in there with the people who think the planet is only six thousand years old and that humans co-existed with dinosaurs. They routinely insult the intelligence of their customers. Anyone take note of the logo change from good old red,white,and blue to the more universally acceptable yellow and blue? Well if the majority of your goods are made in China you may have to do that! I am surprised that didn’t cause an uproar. America has become, under Walmarts business practices, a dumping ground for cheap chinese goods. Cheap isn’t always good, and it is the low income people who are being taken advantage of with shoddy if not useless products and very poor quality and fattening food. I have commented before that Walmart redefines the meaning of monopoly, when will the government wake up to the fact that annual sales of $800 Billion constitutes a “monopoly of influence” that reaches into every sector of American business and American life. This monopoly is destroying choice and diversity and flooding the market place with junk that further devalues our dollar and our lives. There is a place for a Walmart in our competitive world but it should be a much smaller place. Do I shop at Walmart? Yes but I am very selective about what I buy, and usually the quality products that they do carry are available at other store for similar prices.

      the last time i was in walmart i heard a disgrunted customer say “what in the h*** in high school football” when notified that the pennsylvania wm didn’t sell budweiser. what’s really scary is that customer could have gone to isle 115 and bought a shotgun.

    I don’t think the point of this piece was to blame a successful global retailer for the bizarre taste its customers exhibit in their dress, grooming or deportment. I would think the adoption of popular cultural trends as hyped and misrepresented by the media is more influential in the lives of these shoppers than the goods on Walmart’s shelves. The fact that there are so many more opportunities to recognize these aberrations of style is a due to the pervasive numbers of Walmart stores on the American landscape.This is simply the way a lot of America looks.
    Most of those Walmart shoppers would love to be over at Macy’s, Bloomingdales,Ann Taylor,Lucky Brand or Whole Food’s but the simple fact is that Walmart’s the only way that they have been able to afford to keep up with their household needs. No, I don’t work for Walmart,nor do I shop there very often,although now that they are featuring this kind of entertainmant I may stop in more often.
