The Annoyance that is Walmart...

Ok so in an earlier blog post Amelia talked about Walmart vs. Target. Now I am definitely a Target person, but in Illinois we have no Super Targets, which is where I used to get my groceries when we lived in Texas. I cannot stand Walmart, but to grocery shop I really don't have much of a choice. Case in point: Last week I went to Walmart to get groceries for the week. Of course I went during the day and had Reagan with me. So I got all my groceries and proceeded to the checkout counters. Now, Walmart has like 50 checkout lanes. So why in the world would only 2 lanes be open and at the complete otherside of the store. Why I ask when there are at least 10 people with a cart full each in each of the 2 lanes. It isn't because they don't have enough employees working. Since there are about 5 or 6 just standing at the front of the store talking and laughing. So here I am with my already fussy baby waiting behind all these other people. You would think a manager would notice that the lines are long and open another one. But no the manager just walks by. And of course I am in the lane where the checkout girl wants to have lengthy conversations with each person and has to get help from a manager for something. So I spent longer in the checkout line then I did getting my groceries. This would never happen at Target. If the lines get too long at Target they always open up another lane. Oh Super Target please come to Illinois!!!!!

  1. not that i am taking walmart's side AT ALL, but i have definitely also had this happen at target. necessary evils, these stores. and that is so true about the (at least three) walmart workers always standing there talking and just watching the checkout lines. i think we need to investigate what their purpose actually is.
