Wally World on Wash Blvd.

I hate Wal*Mart, but since it's the closest place to go for stuff like dogfood, printer cartridges, paper towels, and the like, I do go there sometimes. But I realllly hate the one in Port Covington, even though it's rarely crowded. I have behaved more badly there than any place I've ever been because of sheer frustration with the stupidity of the people who work there.

Like the time I put an Rx in and when I went back to get it, the desk wasn't open. So I went back the next day. They made me pay full price, because my insurance had expired the day before. Or the time the two women in front of me in the "12 Items or fewer" lane had more than 40 items between them. When I commented on it to the cashier, she got in my face about being racist.

So when T told me about a new W*M near the Home Depot on Washington Boulevard by I-695, I thought I'd mosey on down there, since I had to go to HD anyway. The new W*M is HUGE - measuring in acres, rather than square feet. It's got a full grocery store there and a Subway in the place. It's got more sections that you can believe.
But this pretty much summed up the experience for me.

Having a good chuckle over this!

I've been to Port Covington a few times -- no experiences worse than any other WalMart experience. But I never enjoy shopping at WalMart.

And a store that's larger than your average WalMart? How frightening!

Walmart is evil!!! But with a Home Depot and now a Wal-Mart, at least Lansdowne is finally yanked into the 21st century :D Before that it was really just a smear on the map (I grew up there so I can say that).

that shot of the crisco, as sick as that much packaged fat is, is actually kind of cool and graphic!

BB8... I was going to arrange all of the cans so they faced the same way, but there were too many people around!

WalMart sucks - pass it on

Y'know, just as a conversation starter, it would've been funny just to rearrange all that Crisco.
