Site of the Month
Once again, I sat on my SotM posting too long (and it's only the first third of the month!), but of course, now I see it popping up in Facebook (Meredity, Jack, Glenn and who knows else) making me look like I'm behind the times.
I can count on less than one hand how many times I've been to a Wal*Mart. Icky.
I totally get that they serve a certain socio-economic need, but when one is built and opens by you and you go in two weeks later and it looks like it's been open for 18 years, something is wrong.
So it is no wonder that a site for People of Wal*Mart exists and is so true to life.
There are some things I like about Wal*Mart, like the fact that one of my staff members at my former job (while I was still there) drove the get-away car after her boyfriend (though she was still married - and oh, 19!) knocked over their local one. Her aunt, who was a security guard there, helped them.
If that doesn't perfectly encapsulate the Wal*Mart experience, I do not know what does - though this site tries to do it through still pictures.
