Wal-Mart Woes

Okay. I'm typing this extremely fast because I am in a hurry and I'd like to get this done before Bryan comes in to read it. This has been a most crazy evening. We have had a 4 night Bible study at church which has been incredibly great (I'll write more on that later). Anyway....I ran to WM after church just quick enough to pick up a cute little container to put Bryan's cookies in tomorrow and to pick up an extra cookie sheet (another story for a later time). You would not believe that store. I walked in and it looked like a can of people had exploded all over the store. The card isle is right in front (I had already bought Bryan's card and I've kept it hidden in my car). But moving on...You would not believe the number of people. I stopped in the middle of the isle to count them just so I could communicate this back to the blog world. There were 19 people in front of the cards picking out there V-Day card. Then, the check out stands were outrageous. Every open check out (open being the key word) was busy. It was like it was the day after Thanksgiving when people are hitting the sales or the day before when people buy all their food. I stopped to count people in line. In several stands there were at least 12 people. All of the stands had at least 7. I was blessed and I mean blessed to get in an express line. I was #7. Doesn't #7 mean complete in the Bible?! My night at Wal-Mart was complete. All this for $10.77.

I'm thankful for bargain prices, but on crazy evenings like today, WM can wear me out in 15 minutes!! I am so scattered right now!!

I CAN NOT stand Wal-mart. Not to say that I don't shop there, but I try to only go in the mornings before it is a mad house. I know it was crazy tonight because of V-day, but it always too crowded for me. That is one store that stresses me out! Glad you made it out! :)

Wow, I can't believe you braved WM the day before V-day. I'm with Candy...I'm not fond of it either. Sometimes you just have to do it!

Okay, so I LOVE Walmart (maybe I'm crazy). The only thing is I go shopping at 5am (okay, now you REALLY think I am crazy). Hey, I would rather get up at 5am then go shopping with two boys during the day.

Glad you were able to get everything you need.

I feel your pain! I went to WM last night, too for a gallon of milk and some cheetos. I ended up being there for almost 2 hours! (That was my fault, though, because I got sucked into looking at all the sales.)
