Wal-Mart, How I Hate It.

Not even a year ago I would be floored by the people who never went to Wal-Mart. Granted, they are generally two income families and beggars can't be choosers. I've heard people expound on the passionate hatred they felt for Wal-Mart and I thought they had too little time and too much money to waste so much energy hating a non-living entity.

Until today.

Today, after the absurdly poor customer service I received after standing in the absurdly long checkout line after navigating the absurdly packed aisles in the absurdly oversized store which was absurdly understocked...well, let's just say my money spent just fine next door at Target and NEXT time I won't bother to try to spend it at Wal-Mart.

I'm not saying I'll never go back, but today tipped my scales to the dark side.

I hate it and I am boycotting wal-mart in 2008. Join my crusade.

It is dirty and has long lines, bad service. Not to mention the store by me is like shopping in a 3rd World Country which is fine if you happen to be in a 3rd World Country -- but I am not. The parking lot is crowded, the whole thing is awful and I have had it. I will stick with Target, Hy-vee & Aldi, thank you very much, and if at the end of 2008 I have spent $50-100 more it will be $$ well spent.
