I originally posted this back in March 2008 but felt it was time to repost it considering what happened on Black Friday.
If any of you haven't heard about this yet, a worker at a Wal-Mart store in Valley Stream, NY was trampled to death when shoppers broke down the doors on Black Friday. Story here.
- Rude People. This is not neccesarily just Wal-Mart though. This is one of the reasons I keep shopping to a minimum.
- More than 20. I had about 5 items that I needed to purchase. I went to the 20 items or less aisle and of course, the person in front of me had about 50 items. I HATE THAT!
- Bad Drivers. I hate when people cut across the parking lot and almost hit me just to get a parking space close to the door. I hate when people go the wrong way in the travel aisles. I hate when people wait on parking spaces blocking traffic when they can just park a couple of spaces further from the store.
- Poor Financial Responsibility. This is my biggest pet peeve. Today, the person in front of me with the 50 items paid for her food with her food stamp card. She paid for her 5 DVD's with cash. Granted, I do not know what her financial position is or how many kids she has but if you need foodstamps to buy your food, you probably should be saving your cash for other needs and not movies.
I actually do save money at Wal-Mart or I would go somewhere else. Are you a Wal-Mart shopper? What you do dislike about Wal-Mart?
