Love to hate Wal-Mart? Don’t be shy, tell Ryeder why!

While recently hanging out at Ryeder’s blogcasa I took note of his very informative post about why Wal-Mart sucks-again.  If you just can’t contain your curiosity as to what’s eating his skin go read his lovely lively list asap–>

And please do take your own dungballs for flinging at Wally World for disposal in Ryeder’s compositional compost pile. Please don’t be shy–go share your “Wal-Mart sucks” data at will.  It might distract the gent from his “missing” cigars. Full explanation regarding said cigars is available via his rambling weblog.

 While I was video shopping at YouTube I came across this delightful gem posted below.  And I learned about Wal-Mart’s “dead peasants.”  Do other companies take out “dead peasant” policies on their employees? I don’t know.  Do you? If so, do tell.  Where have I been? Oh–definitely NOT in any Wally World since I went on a search and discovery mission to see and hear their Homeland Security alliance for myself.  I purchased nothing. I simply loitered and spied.  PS–It smelled strange in Liberty’s Wally World that day.

    Ha! I never go to Walmart. I’ve heard things are much less expensive there, but have heard that about other places, also. I worked for a retailer, not aslarge as Walmart, but function on much the same idea. I neeeded work, aging and it was something I could do when I lost my other income. I needed to have knowledge of my own self worth or I would have become fairly depressed as I did what I had to do for that period of time. An employee is truly a statistic. I did forge some pretty good friendships in fellow workers and that was a plus.
    The video? Loved it! Saturated my joy in things eerie is what it did. Alfred Hitchcock and the guy on Twilight Zone would be so interested in this phenomenon and have great fun with it! Ha1 Thanks for posting it.

      Oh Wally World’s prices are not that low–sometimes just a penny or two so that they can claim the “lowest price.”
      Glad you survived intact from your time spent as an expendable statistic, Leslie.
      Glad you enjoyed the video. The guy who did this has several others on YouTube-and they’re all “different.” The voice sounded familiar to me but I couldn’t place it. My son helped out—it’s Agent Smith from “the Matric” film. Oh yeah, could anything be more appropriate? LOL.
      Thanks for enjoying and sharing your work experience during a desperate time.

    Now that is a really scary video. We’ve got the same issue in the UK with Tesco’s but their dominance seems to be nowhere near as bad as WalMarts.

      If you’re ever stateside you really ought to visit a few Wal-Marts to get a sense of the stores. Better yet follow the virus as it invades a community and destroys the local small businesses. Seeing it happen is not pleasant. One could argue that part of the problem are the people give Wally World their money. Some areas have no options but others have had the choice to shop at Wally World or not. The company’s treatment of its employees has had major impact on the economy nationwide. Did Tesco’s CEO atttend the latest environmental conference in Cancun?
