Was walking out of walmart...

Postby Worm_Drippinz » Mon Nov 13, 2017 11:24 pm

Another 100lbs of sugar among other things and the person checking receipts at the door was a sweet old lady who said-


"Anytime I see someone buying sugar I can't help to think of moonshine!!"




I replied- "nailed it honey!"....... and kept walking.


She had to be in her 80's. Lol


My wife just rolled her eyes. :lolno:

Last week when I went to Walmart I saw a woman pushing a 13 year old boy in a shopping cart. Another girl was dragging a rubber seal, like the sea creature, on a leash behind her. I counted five neck tattoos and that was just the ladies...

I hate walmart, not because of the store itself, just the obese welfare people it attracts. I think maybe I'm being elitist, but then remember I grew up on a farm with NOTHING and chose not to remain that way.

Look at all the threads of "people of walmart" on various sites, disgusting.

I can’t stand the place either. It’s their business tactics I can’t stand so I take my money to smaller local establishments.

Oh that’s quite possibly true Tater! Lol. I don’t go unless the wife forces me because of a sale or whatever.
My buddies wife works at one in another town, horrible hours but not much other employment so she’s “stuck”. I said, meh, it can’t be that bad or you’d quit, if you put up with it then they will exploit that.

Yeah maybe a judgemental asshole? I knew I’d be good at something in life! Lol.

More to the point of the thread though, last time I was in one I asked about a grain mill....yeah they were lost. Said there is lots on line, I just wanted to physically see it to decide if it would work. “Yeah, I don’t know, probably should just order it online”. Well thanks. :roll:

I LOVE Wal-Mart.
As long as they got sugar for $8 for #25 and Milk for .98 cents a gallon. Aigs for .49 cents a dozen.
That's Me on the People of Wal-Mart on the internet.....
Actually, I did see someone I know on that site once.

I don't really get these threads, I went to a a heap of walmarts while in the states and didn't see demographics that varied much from dollar general, lowes or a dozen other stores. Maybe its the areas folks are going to, ya prolly not going to be mingling with the Rockerfellers if the TJ Max store ya frequent is in the ghettos, jus sayin.

I buy paper towels, cat food, dish soap etc. at Walmart because it's cheap.

Once I was buying 50 lbs of sugar at a grocery store and the clerk said "Oh, making some moonshine?" and I responded "Yes, actually!" and he and the lady in line just cracked up. He said he was joking but he had heard people used sugar for moonshine.

Of course, here in California, moonshining is unheard of. I'd be a lot more careful if I lived in the southeast where people are wiser to it.

@ Uncle Jessie viewtopic.php?f=7&t=28633&start=60#p7001257.
Yeah cob no doubt. Quite a long time ago now we had retail degegulated and the two biggest supermarkets went to war on all the others plus all the mini markets grocers butchers lqure stores building supplies etc etc. Those two (Coles/westfarmers and Woolworths) now control better than 90% of the supermarket trade, meaning they control supply transport and production here and have a fair amount of control in many industries, ethic ha there are none just shareholder returns. If they want to move into a district they build combat store that are happy to sell at a loss until all competition is bankrupt . They are big enough now to dictate to farmers what they are going to pay and if its below cost stiff shit. This concept of shareholder controlled industry is not new to any Aussie I can assure you. Sue works for them in fuel supply (service station)and when she hurt herself at work they sent in a big law firm to say she didn't and left her in no doubt they would pour what ever resources were needed to fight her in court. They are rotten to the core but avoiding them all together is not a serious option, I do as much as I can use small suppliers butchers and grocers and pretty darn rarely buy their ridiculously priced grog :ewink: .

Going to Walmart is better than watching the television, I live way in the country and it's the only big store within an hour (still a half an hour)

Some of the things you see will amaze even the most dull of personalities, I for one LOVE going if for nothing else the variety of people and seeing another way of life I'm glad I don't live. lol

WALMART ☆ HELL YEAH

Walmart's sugar is usually a couple cents cheaper per pound than Costco. Hard to argue with that....

Pay attention to the sugar at Wal-Mart,they have two kinds in the 25#bag for the same price. One is the walmart brand but just says sugar and is beet sugar the other is also store brand but says 100%pure cane sugar. I know sugar is sugar but the pure cane seems to make less heads and correspondingly bigger hearts cut according to my logbook.

I have seen a few people I know (of) on the people of Wal-Mart website. It's better than going to a carnival

I despise Wal-Mart, yet don't have hardly any other options in a small town like mine, other than Food City. I try to do business with all the mom n pop shops around but some things can't be bought there

Up until 3 or 4 years ago the closest Walmart for me was a 3 hour drive, ( you don't know what living in the sticks is till you've lived where I lived) now I have one 10 minutes from my house. I stop in to see if they have any ammo and such. Before that I'd been to a Walmart twice in my life and I was shocked at the prices. Granted you have to wait in line for 30 minutes but depending on what your time is worth to you they have some bargains.

I have good dental work but I'll go shop with the unwashed, guess I'm just not that proud that I won't try to save a buck.

For a couple of Hillbillys from Australia a visit to Walmart is a bit of an eye opener ....You guys have some seriously interesting things on your shelves when it comes to food, your selection of cheeses is shit though.
Empty Glass and I spent several happy hours wandering around looking at and buying things we cant get here, just to sample them and see what they tasted like.
I did see some of those people that you see in the posts about " the people of Walmart", but then people with heads like a hat full of arseholes shouldn't throw stones.
The first time I was walking out of Walmart I saw this in the car park, cars like this would be taken off the road by the cops within 5 minutes in Australia, rusted body panels are a big no no.

The second time that I walked out of Walmart I though that we should have bought a bigger car.

I've got a truck that looks like that, but I had to stop driving it to town.
Not because of the police, but because the rust holes got big enough for things like beer cans, tools and passengers to fall through. Here in my neck of the woods, we don't have car safety inspections

At Walmart, I buy Zulka brand sugar in 8 pound plastic bags.
It ferments better than regular cane sugar. and is less conspicuous than 25 pound bags :lol:

Wrong venue.
Fine cheeses would rot on the shelves at Wal★Mart from lack of appreciation and higher cost.
I give my wife ("The Mouse") a basket of international cheeses every Christmas.
Hand-picked (and pricier), found only at higher-end grocers.
Like a cheese geography lesson in the cold bins there.
