So, I went to WalMart tonight.
Hey, the WalMart super center is the only grocery store around here there carries the 2-quart cartons of Tropicana Light Fruit Punch (only 10 calories per serving and yummy), I buy like 10 at once…anyway.
So I picked the wrong damn line to get in. The woman in front of me had 4, 12 packs of canned cokes. Now, Walmart will price match any advertised price. All you have to do is bring an ad with you and say I want this at that price, and she did, she said she wanted to match the Kroger price of 4, 12 packs of canned cokes for $10. The WalMart price for this week for one 12-pack of canned Cokes was $3.75. Now, it took 5 minutes, 3 employees and a calculator
to figure out the price difference to ‘ring’ it up properly. Not to figure out how to do the modified pricing on the cash register, but to figure out the total price difference.
At first I wanted to just politely tell them, but I decided not too. By the time the second extra person came and was looking for the calculator you do not know how bad I wanted to scream “You god damn idiots it is a difference of $1.25 per 12 pack, go back to first grade you morons.”.
And that is why this country will not last 25 more years. In the span of 5 minutes I met 4 adults that all have a drivers license that first grade math was too complicated (as not only the three Walmart employees but the woman purchasing the Coke’s could not even figure it out).Behold…this land. And we shall call it [pause] this land. Maybe we should call it your grave!. Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!
