There seems to be a lot of bad mouthing going on lately about Wal Mart.
It seems to me that if Wal Mart was a fraction as bad as some people let on, Wal Mart wouldn't be one of the biggest companies in the world, employing millions of people.
So why do I not dislike Wal Mart.
I hate to shop.
But since just about everything I shop for is at one place.....Walmart....I can take as little time as possible in town shopping.
Wal Mart's price is about the lowest in town.
The auto gas price IS the lowest in town.
The checkout lines are fast.
The checkout people are friendly. A couple weeks ago, somehow, the check out lady and I got to talking about guns. I invited Her out to my range to learn to shoot.
Yesterday I couldn't find something, "Zatarain's Gumbo Mix" (I'm going to make a BIG pot of Gumbo. ) so I asked a lady stocking shelves.
She told me where it was. It was several isles over.
Then, a minute later she showed up to help me find it.
My Wife and I moved to Texas in the mid 1960's. Some time after that the first Wal Mart opened. Been going there ever since.
I'm sure it's happened but in all those years I can't remember a rude Wal Mart employee.
I don't tolerate rude people, I get nasty.
Yesterday, along with shopping, I needed to pick up some Prescriptions and wanted to get the (free) Flu and Pneumonia shots.
Although the lady, that gave me the shot, was right busy, she took some time to research whether I need the Pneumonia shot this year.
A few weeks ago, another lady in the Prescriptions depart spent some time checking on a lower price for several Prescriptions for me.
Still, I hate shopping, but Wal Mart does make it as painless as possible.
Oh boy, we're going to have WalMart wars.
