Nov 21st 2006 9:16PM Denim covered pair of pliers! LOL That's just damn funny, I don't care who you are. Thanx C. Robertson, best laugh I had all day. Seriously tho, they are the ugliest things I've ever seen. You couldn't give me those and make me wear them, much less actually pay $65 for them.
Oct 31st 2006 5:13PM I drive 20 miles to Shawnee, Oklahoma to avoid Wal-Mart that is 5 miles from home. I will gladly drive 60 miles to OKC to shop at Target. The service and friendly employees are the reason. Wal-Mart has now discontinued their Lay-A-Way which is just plain stupid. In lower income areas like mine Lay-A-Way is what makes Christmas and birthdays possible for most people. They depend on it to buy big ticket items such as T.V.'s and other more expensive household items. They don't give a damn about their customers needs or wants. And believe me they treat their employees like dogs. My friend is a manager there and he can't wait to retire, he is miserable! He has 25 plus years in grocery managment(previous to his emplyment at W-M)He knows grocery inside out and they are bringing younger people in off the street with NO experience into grocery managment and are starting them out with more annual salery than my friend. Sounds like discrimination to me! And just so you know they throw out hundreds of dollars of meat everyday that is perfectly edible because they can't grasp the idea of reduce and move it out. They even told my friend that his profit margins were to high! There is no such thing as having too high a profit margin in grocery, that is the whole point of having a profit margin. That means you are doing a damn good job. Those of you that have worked or managed a grocery depatment know that. Just goes to show you the ignorance of this company. With a signed waiver of liability they could donate that meat to homeless shelters, senior citizens centers and so much more. But wasting it is what Wal-Mart would rather do. Screw 'em! The bigger they are, the harder they fall! Nuf said.
Aug 24th 2006 9:55PM My parents married at 27 and quickly had 3 children. When my mother was in her 40's and going thru menopause she got pregnant with me. My siblings are much older than me, they were getting married and going off to fight the vietnam war as I was just starting kindergarten. So I can say from experience having older parents was no walk in the park. They were worn out raising the first 3 by the time I came along. My sister "raised" me and til this day is more like a mom to me than just a sister. My father basically had no interest in me what so ever. Don't get me wrong I know I was loved, but they were always too tired to do this and that, that a child wants to do. Sports was out of the question because they had no interst in going to any games. Always sighting the noise or the fact they lasted to late into the nite. Needless to say I lost my parents too young and I don't have the memories that my friends have that had much younger parents. I am 44, my kids are grown and I can enjoy my grandkids.
Aug 18th 2006 8:55AM Oh come on Kelly, he saved a pennies compared to what the house cost! We are in construction too and we bring home something from almost every job we do. Example:Pallets, they are thrown away once the freight has been removed, they can be torn apart and used for many different projects at home. Left over wiring from an intercom system in a building we built was used when we installed one in our home. Just so you know we salvaged it from the dumpster. You can't use every scrap of material ordered for a construction job, there will always be left over material. Why send perfectly usable stuff to the dump when it can be used somewhere else? Now, that is wasteful.
