Wal-Mart Informative - What I can remember about Walmart
MADISON OHIO -- I go into Madison WalMart SuperCenter sometimes. I'm always waiting for some 'miracle' whether for my life or them. Not color-coordinated or attractive, I see band-aids on the floor, nail polish spills, laundry deterent leaks, cold aisles, no Zone food these days or Boca or raw milk and almost everything's packaged in plastic, some frozen foods don't say on the front what's of their nutrition, only 1 self-check out has a 'computer' that doesn't speak, they still don't offer paper bags these days yet; most of their bags are still small for pizzas, now they have one or two good dog foods, but still: beet pulp. Pillows cost $10.00, some clothes: 13. There's no Campbell bean and ham soup without the smoke flavor, all their gums have aspartame today, they have a sign that indicates that around 51% of their food gets sold everyday by the bathroom in the back of the store but with all the money they have and all the food, whether high or low, I can't believe that percentage. I tasted water from the water fountain once there, and all I could taste was like blue, black or silver floaty metal. Can't find an okay dog food there but see it of cats, don't see the 3 year old Hartz cough drops they should have with herbs and vitamins, men wear watches there and yet I hear that everybody working in the back is sick; they have 2,400 calorie pizzas, they don't have the Almay Nail Polish with fluoride... Honest, I just can't believe anything. And children fall from their siblings especially teenage girls and no one helps them get up or give a band aid. I feel like I'm responsible for all this, yet 3 hours there just a few times each month, and with only $160 on my EBT card isn't enough!!!!!!!! Oh yeah, and they used to have a lemon-lime 1000 mg of co-enzyme Q10 drink I used to buy for just 88 cents by the Centrum Vitamin(s). Sure enough, the shelf is gone too. Not only can I buy it no more, but their delivery time was horrible when they had it and I had to keep reminding them and wait a long time. Also, for awhile, none of the Garnier like conditioners (I think they were) were at the same level in the containers and it was going to be 2 weeks before a woman fixed it. I felt so yucky, even coming home. I found an Ensure I might of paid for officially that smelled like old cheese with something floating in it and I gave it to the customer service people to smell. Sure, it only happened once, but I hate it when I feel sick or see something crazy. I worry about others. I see refrigerated food sitting out like eggs, milk, and frozen too. I saw a french onion dip where some dog food was once, and I still feel that many of their prices are too expensive. In fact: Marc's is often cheaper; my mom says Trader Joe's is, and either way, so is Meijer's if you have one!!!!!! Oh, and I had a piece of clothing, I think my nice coat, tough like canvas I thought I could give or start a small business myself, or even just exchange it or something. Really, I sometimes have seen but 1 toy there that has a price tag on it but no more of than 1 or 2 of those toys in the whole rest of the store. Once, it was a dog hand puppet for 5 bucks or more and I see Salvation Army people there sometimes and they have a jar for money for a children's hospital I believe. Either way, so does the inside of Walmart. Was there not something good I could do with my coat or significant other and not have to spend $70 or more on a winter L.L Bean one again??!! Or Land's End?? Oh yeah, and every 2 months or so since it's opened, somebody mentions that I need to work there but doesn't lead me anywhere or get me a form or ask for my parents names. They many times ask if I would like to and even say "Oh yeah. I think you SHOULD!!!!!!!" Girls say that to me. One woman worker smells sick and old. 2 kind of do, but I haven't seen them lately. I know that one of them smokes, but that's not what she smells like, of which: I wouldn't mind in this situation. I could indeed smell her at least 2 aisles away and can't breathe it for 2 seconds, so I hardly ever get near her. The food door is far away from where the blood pressure stand is; the middle door they close at 10:50 at night normally, which is over 14 cash registers farther (the other way)and now I see toothpaste and deodorants kind of where the food aisles are and I can't guess if they're the best quality or not. Is there anything to look forward to? "I doubt it." People wrote BLOOD in nailpolish on their low shelf there, but gallons of nail polish have been wasted to this day. Some was on the floor one day, and I saw, but a cleaning man with his 'chemical stand' try to clean it up with nail polish remover. I told him that he could then do the nail polish area and he just laughed saying 'heh' like maybe he didn't work over there. Nothing I could understand. Sometimes cashier's light numbers are on. 2 of them!! But neither's there for over 2 minutes. Oh, and the Rolaids that are hard (no trans fat or aluminum) have been gone for weeks but the prices are still there. Yes, they're still gone!! I still don't know if I should stay there. My prescriptions I would get there, open up the bottles at home and smell a green alcohol that made me sneeze and then my medicines not seeming to work great because of that. Indeed, I tried it on my mom once; she shifted her head and sneezed some too.
