Default 15 Things To Do At Wal-Mart

Got this from my Father-In-Law and had to share it.

Fifteen things to do at Wal-Mart while your spouse is taking her
sweet time: (written by a man of course!!)

1. Get 24 boxes of condoms & randomly put them in people's carts when they aren't looking.

2. Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute
intervals.

3. Make a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the rest
rooms.

4. Walk up to an employee and tell him/her in an official tone, "Code 3 in Housewares" . . . and see what happens.

5. Go to the Service Desk and ask to put a bag of M&M's on lay away.

6. Move a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area.

7. Set up a tent in the camping department and tell other shoppers you'll invite them in if they bring pillows from the bedding department.

8. When a clerk asks if they can help you, begin to cry and ask, "Why can't you people just leave me alone?"

9. Look right into the security camera, use it as a mirror and pick
your nose.

10. While handling guns in the hunting department, ask the clerk if he knows where the anti-depressants are.

11. Dart around the store suspiciously while loudly humming the theme from "Mission Impossible."

12. In the auto department, practice your "Madonna look" using
different size funnels.

13. Hide in a clothing rack and when people browse through, say "PICK ME! PICK ME!"

14. When an announcement comes over the loud speaker, assume the fetal position and scream "NO! NO! It's those voices again!!!"

And last but not least:
15. Go into a fitting room, shut the door and wait a while and then
yell loudly "There's no toilet paper in here!"

16 Ask any female member of staff if she was on of the 6 in the Playboy spread, and if not, why not ? You never know, you might get a few $$ knocked off your purchases !

ireland132 is an unknown quantity at this point

Or ask them why they pay such poor wages - an average of $3 per hour less than union supermarket jobs, $2 per hour less than all supermarket jobs, and $1 per hour less than the average retail wage.

Or why their health plan only has participation by 38% of their employees.

Or why for every two jobs created by a Wal-Mart store, the community loses three.
