That is what you get when you shop at WalMart and not small business, right Howard ? LOL. I am glad only minor injuries, seriously.

If only lightning had hit Wal-Mart. Sorry, I'm just not a fun of corporations that attempt to and succeed in taking over the world.

If Wal-Mart has taken over the world, wouldn't that suggest they control the weather?

What about Tops on Friday afternoon? The power was out, and they had their emergency lights on. The staff was scrambling to put plastic up on all the dairy and produce exposed. They continued to allow people to shop in low lighting (kind of nice, actually) only to get to the check-out to enormous long lines. Then after standing there for a period of time we were all told that they wouldn't be checking out any more people. We were told to leave the baskets with the groceries. Why don't they have something in place with the registers to keep business moving? Especially if they are going to continue to allow customers in to the building to shop? Cashiers today have no clue how to make change if the computerized cash register doesn't tell them how much to give back after a transaction. Now I question going there to buy anything. How much melted food did they return to the shelves to only be sold again? Buyers Beware!

Isn't Wal-Marts slogan, "watch out for falling prices"? Might have to revise that one.
