Wal-Mart, You Never Cease to Amaze Me

I went to the local Wal-Mart today because a few items that I dearly love are so much cheaper there.

Like my PB & Company peanut butter.

Costs $4.99 at Kroger.

Costs $3.68 at Wal-Mart.

Every time I go to Wal-Mart I leave thinking, what the fuck kind of world did I just walk out of.

I am pretty sure that I saw Dobby from Harry Potter in a motorized shopping cart, yes, I swear the old man looked just like this adorable house elf.

I saw a very large woman in a tank top, no bra.

I saw a younger lady with her baby in a Century brand infant seat that is not only almost 12 years old and extremely unsafe, it was also recalled.  Have I ever mentioned car seat stupidity is one of my biggest pet peeves?

While I am on my car seat tangent, I would like to express my annoyance for a few friends I have on FB that have posted pictures of their children using their new BIG GIRL OR BIG BOY seats.   These happen to be boosters and these kids happen to be around Davis' age.  It makes my blood boil and I want to post this to their FB page.  It is 4 years old and 40 lbs. in the State of Ohio, not one or the other!!!!!!!!!  It is BOTH!!!!!   I just don't understand people who are so ignorant when it comes to car seat safety.  I guess I'll get off my soap box now.

Back to Wal-Mart.

I saw two guys sniffing fresh cut flowers and looking all excited.  Awwww, they were buying their girlfriends Wal-Mart roses. 

I saw a couple that looked like they were serial killers.

I saw Dobby again.

I think he was following me.

The cashier had zero clue how to work the register.  I've never worked a register and I'm pretty sure I would do a better job. She also forgot my coupons.  Bitch.

When leaving I walked past the Wal-Mart Beauty Salon and Nail Salon.

Next time I think I will take pictures of the people in there.  They might be the most interesting Wal-Martians of them all.

Until next time Wal-Mart.

I see a lot of people post photos of their kids in carseats that are not even buckled tight. It scares me. My kids are so tight they can't move. ;) ...and the carseat actually says the limits on it when you purchase it? Do they not read that? Soph's in a booster, but it's a 5 point harness until she's old enough to wear the normal seatbelt (like when she's 10. Ha.).

So, Emy and I were laughing about you yesterday. We did a family photoshoot at TBG and it was like 100 degrees outside. E had enough. She was a sweaty mess and mid-outfit change, she ran off in just her diaper. My husband chased after her, by himself, while Emy and I watched from a distance. We said someone is going to see him with this kid in a diaper at the park and write on FB about how trashy he is. ;) Ha. She was also telling me how awesome your mom is. She said she loves her.
