I feel like I should defend walmart, because I worked there for a year to save for school and my dad works there, and it put food on my family's table for years...

but fuck it. Wal-Mart is the devil.

Why? They offer low prices to the people that need them.

Yes, and I shop there when I'm visiting home... but working there is different. Your soul gets eaten away bit by bit everytime you have to tell a jobless baby machine on drugs that she cannot buy cigarettes with her food stamps. And then listen to her rant about how hard it is when she has six kids and her husband is in prison and all she needs is just one more pack and please won't I bend the rules just this once? No ma'am, it's a state program, I have no control over it. And by the way, buying steaks and shrimp and piles of junk food with your food stamps is worse than that "one more pack" you just have to have.


I'm done.

At least the guy in your example was going for higher education. Some people are sharp as hell but cant take a written test for shit. Fact is, you have no way of knowing his situation be it financial, intellectual, or anything, so its all just speculation.

I assume he wasnt poor right off, he was wearing nice clothes... ghetto fabulous, but still nice. Tims arent cheap, niether was his coat. But this guy either couldnt read, or is retarded. One or the other. And while I agree that "at least" he is going for higher education the cynic in me started thinking "ya know I bet he really ISNT paying for school on his own and its coming outta my taxes". That wouldnt have been TOO scary if the guy could finish a 1 hour test in ya know... an hour and not 3 or 4.

I want to be sympathetic... but I hate Walmart workers. I have never had a pleasant shopping experience there simply due to the workers. Pricing is good, but the workers are bad. Cause and effect? maybe I dunno...
