    Are you a Walmart fan??

    found this on another forum, thought Id copy it here.


    Mr. and Mrs.Fenton are retired. Mrs. Fenton insists that he go with her to Walmart. He gets bored with all the shopping. He prefers to get in and get out, but Mrs. Fenton loves to browse. Here's a letter sent to her from the store.

    Dear Mrs. Fenton,
    Over the past six months, your husband has been causing quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and may ban both of you from our stores. We have documented all incidents on our video surveillance equipment. All complaints against Mr. Fenton are listed below.

    Things Mr. Bill Fenton has done while his spouse was shopping in Walmart:

    1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly
    put them in people's carts when they weren't looking.

    2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares
    to go off at 5-minute intervals.

    3. July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor
    leading to the restrooms.

    4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an
    official tone, 'Code 3' in housewares... and watched
    what happened.

    5. Aug 4: Went to the Service Desk and asked to
    put a bag of M&M's on layaway.

    6. Sept 14: Moved a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign
    to a carpeted area.

    7. Sept 15: Set up a tent in the camping department
    and told other shoppers he'd invite them in if they'll
    bring pillows from the bedding department.

    8. Sept 23: When a clerk asks if they can help him
    him, he begins to cry and asks, 'Why can't you people
    just leave me alone?'

    9. Oct 4: Looked right into the security camera;
    used it as a mirror, and picked his nose.

    10. Nov 10: While handling guns in the hunting department,
    asked the clerk if he knows where to find the
    antidepressants.

    11. Dec 3: Darted around the store suspiciously
    loudly humming the "Mission Impossible" theme.

    12. Dec 6: In the auto department, practiced his
    "Madonna look" using different size funnels.

    13. Dec 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browse
    through, yelled "PICK ME!" "PICK ME!"

    14. Dec 21: When an announcement came over the
    loud speaker, he assumes the fetal position and
    screams "NO! NO! It's those voices again!!!!"

    And last, but not least ....

    15. Dec 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door
    waited awhile, then yelled very loudly, "There
    is no toilet paper in here!

    Some people are super anti-Wal-MArt. I have met people who claim they will never shop there. Heck, when I first moved into my new house last year, we ended up there 5-6 times a day, sometimes, because we kept needing "1 more thing".

    My wife and I go to Wal-Mart all the time...

    I'm not much on any large stores or shopping in general. Walmart is good for bricks of .22s and cleaning supplies. I would enjoy watching some one make a fool out of themselves and others with those type of antics, remember Candid Camera.

    I am definitely not a Wal Mart fan. I hate their lack of customer service and do not like to reward a business with my business if they can't provide me with the basics. That being said, Mr. Fenton is my hero. I may try that so I can get banned and my wife will never have an excuse to drag me there.

    Walmart is okay, the wife and I end up there a lot just for whatever, walmart probably has it. I really don't like the sporting goods department though. I don't think any walmart in CT sells firearms there any more. Ammo is cheap though. They never have the good gun magazines either Also I needed a cap gun for a holloween costume and I asked a guy in the toy department if they had any because I couldn't find them...He looked at me like I was from mars or something. Is it too politically incorrect to sell cap guns anymore?

    Funny. Years ago I went to Target to buy a BB gun. I found they didn't sell any guns (company policy). OK. I browsed a bit in the toy dept. and found, to my surprise, toy guns.

    Probably. Which is why you can actually find them in some gun stores now. LOL! Yes... we sell them where I work.

    It's also part of the soccer mom revolution. They don't want their kids playing with toy guns because it promotes violence.

    As opposed to the violence brought by drunken and unruly soccer fans

    My wife loves Walmart. She misses the Super Walmart we had in Iowa. I’ve been known to get a little bored in the toy department and try to get as many toys going at the same time. My wife sounds like she’s talking to one of her kids, “Tony, Stop that!” I’ve set a few clock alarms too.
