    I still have 1/2 of my teeth, which is 4 times more than most other Walmart shoppers. Hence, going there makes me feel superior.

Probably a rape attempt, possibly involving gang members, which resulted in the suspects tossing a big piece of concrete through her car window. She got a concussion and three days in the hospital out of it and was fortunate something worse didn't happen.

    A few years later she got married, and that guy later became a Deputy Sheriff. I trained him in the police academy. Some years later, after he got out on the road, we met for coffee one evening and he told me that his wife didn't want him to be armed off duty because she didn't want him "looking for trouble".

    Well honey, you weren't looking for trouble either. Trouble came and found you and you could've been killed . . .
    The wife is a waste of oxygen, she will get more valuable people killed !

    Just to clarify- people watching at Walmart is an oxymoron. Every time I go to Walmart I see people that make me worry for the future. For people watching I go to wegmans for the yoga milf. Parking on the sidewalk was my attempt to push the thieves to a different Walmart outside my jurisdiction. Didnít always work. You canít fix stupid

    Did some shopping at Wally yesterday at lunchtime. Parking lot wasn't crowded, I left 5-6 spaces between me and the next closest car and was still pretty close to the door. When I wheeled my wagon out the door I see a half dozen dudes wearing wife-beater tanks with their pants belted below their asses (didn't realize that was still a thing) milling around 2 SUV's (Escalade and a GMC), parked two spaces further out from my car. One guy was walking towards the door, the rest were just hanging around the cars.

    My first thought was "Sure, I post on P-F about how I enjoy people watching at Wally and I get killed on my next visit".

    Of course it was a non-event, just funny.

    Iíll people watch when my wife makes a run in and the kidís asleep in his seat. See all kinds of stupidity that gets people victimized.

    - Leaving car door wide open while returning the buggy.
    - Getting in car, not locking door and burying head in phone for at least 5 minutes.
    - Walking through the parking lot with head buried in phone.
    - Not paying enough attention to the guy watching you from his running car.

    The list goes on but you get the point.

    Man do we mis Wegmans, wish Danny would start building in the South. Always thought Tops was pretty sad until we started shopping at Krogers.I believe Krogers is training to be able to work at Walmart

    (1.) "Waffle House by the Highway" is such a descriptive term. A visit to the Waffle House is one of the peculiar treasures of a visit to the old Confederacy. Many interesting people eat at the Waffle House. Particularly at bar time

    (2.) I have always wondered if each Walmart did in fact contain a secret portal to another universe. That would explain a lot . . . beings from an alternate reality who accidentally became unstuck in time and drifted into our universe. Or were exiled from their home planets for some infraction . . .

    The salient point of the OP's post that has me agog is that someone actually makes a special trip to Walmart at 2:00am for f'ing Moon Pies. The mind boggles.
