Sounds like the most obviuous statement of all time right? But I mean really different....Like scary different, and it is amazing to me how that translates to what see everyday. I like shopping at Target. The store is clean, the staff is helpful, the store just makes me feel good. Probably the only thing that I don't like is how strict they are on returns. A couple of nights ago, I found myself running into Walmart. Now with Walmart, I get what I feel are lower prices, but the store feels dirtier than Target, the employees alot less likely to help, and the reason for this blog....the customers can be downright scary. I mean I am seeing people that make me put my hand on my wallet and wonder where are these people from? It made me feel like I was walking in some bad part of El Cajon. I relayed the story to someone who told me, "you've been to the website right?"...Lo and behold www.peopleofwalmart.com is presented to me. The pictures are priceless and I realize it's not just the Santee Walmart. Walmarts everywhere bring out the best consumers. Now I feel scared for society. This is the Walmart effect, not putting small businesses out of business but rather eradicating the fabric of society and of the norm. I woke up this am and went for 7/11 for chocolate milk, they were out, so I drove down to Circle K, and you know what? I found all of those same characters that I would see at Walmart. So the difference from Target to Walmart radiates down to the local mini mart. Scary people shop togther and I am dumbfunded how they all find the same stores....they must radar like bats or the internal navigation of some whale during migration. Whatever it is , I am just glad my pic is not up on that website, and I can wake up tomorrow feeling good about myself.
