I went to Wal-Mart this past Saturday afternoon against my better judgment. I don't like going to Wal-Mart, but it was the most convenient at the time. The aisles I needed to go to were so crowded I decided to leave without getting my stuff. I usually have a bad experience going to Wal-Mart. The parking lot is always crowded, the cars in the lot drive too fast, and the check-out lanes are long. I also feel bad contributing to a company that underpays its employees.
So by my going to Wal-Mart on Saturday, I contributed to the already chaotic situation of the store. I don't mind the store in the early morning, but every other time seems like a poor life choice. Now, if you're reading this, and you or someone you know works for Wal-Mart, you might be thinking, "Hey Mitch, what gives?". I'm not trying to offend anyone for working a job, I guess I'm more talking about the overall experience of going to the store.
I've been to crowded stores. I've been in parking lots where jerks drive 50 miles per hours. I've been in stores with long check out lines. It just seems that Wal-Mart is a combination of all of these negative factors. I was reflecting on my experience on Saturday and realized I was contributing to the chaos of the store.
