The Walmart Odyssey

I hate Walmart since Waltons kids ruined his vision by buying cheap shit from foreign countries rather than cheap shit from the U.S.

BUT

This lawsuit on behalf of the 1.6 million female employees claiming they don't get the same pay or advancement opportunities?
GET THE FUCK OUT!
I was just there 2 days ago when I was walking through the lawn and garden section. Some lady needed help loading shit/manure into her car. Know what one of the females paged?
"We need a MALE associate to lawn and garden for customer service."



Do the same job, you'll get the same pay.

None of this surprises me in the least. I try to avoid Wally World unless I absolutely have to go there for something that I either can't get elsewhere or is more expensive elsewhere.

I don't nessesarily agree with the lawsuit (used to work at Walmart...and there are bigger issues than this)...but as far as I see it, this is just one more thing to help bring that monster down. If you ask me, Walmart is the anti-american company...mainly because it sqeezes out the little guy, and does not promote entrepreneurilism. Sad thing is, its not just the Walton kids with this ideal, it was Sam himself.

It must be an American thing, Walmart own the UK's biggest supermarket chain, Asda, and the female employees there have absolutley no problem at all with shit like this, they'd be only to happy to carry your fertilizer for you

Anybody have a place called "Sam's Club" around you? It's created by the same guy, but it's surplus shopping basically. I shop there, cheaper and you get more.

Yeah, but BJs Club is better. Lower prices and they sell discounted gasoline too. Today: $1.63 regular, $1.79 Premium.

The clothes Wal-Mart carries sucks too...

I like the Target brand clothes, and whatever else they carry, if we're talking about buying clothes from those..."type" of stores...

Someone told me that Target stores are owned and run by Iranians (or maybe some other Middle Eastern peoples). I don't know that for sure, though.

I don't know, but I probably doubt it...

During my swing shift days, i would love going into walmart at 2 in the morning and start chating with the non-english speaking floor crew.
And bumping into this charming Asin fellow named "Bob".
Fun days back then.

I've heard of some cities in the western US that have had Walmart stores close soon after opening because popularity was still with the smaller store buisnesses...

I can skateboard...I can make quite a racket doing bonelesses off heights and pulling off caveman tailslides on anything with the same physical features as a ledge...

a) sams club is the shit. saves my family a shitload each month on groceries by buying in bluk.

b) walmart is shit to work for. they never allow anyone to work over 40 hours a week. This means each employee is only part-time, which means they can't get benifits and they can't unionize (i think).
they got hella cheap prices though. /shrug.

Sam's Club does rock. That's where I got my last three sets of tires on my truck. Not cheap, but cheaper than anywhere else... Plus they're good quality, name brand tires.

And buying paper towels and toilet paper in bulk saves major pesos.

This time of year, we get tourists and their RVs hanging out at Walmart. They lay out fake gras carpet and patio furniture right there in the parking lot which I affectionately call "Camp Walmart"
