I do just that sometimes!
the closest Wally-World to us has a McDonalds in the store with
cafe tables and stools. I get something to drink and sit for a spell...I even take pictures, my husband thinks that I'm "tetched in the head"
I think it's hysterical!
some of those Wal-Martians are great, especially here in Cowtown USA.

Should provide ample explanation fodder for spouses who don't get everything on their grocery list or forget the list totally.

"Gee, honey! I only had one beer and I just couldn't remember what was on the shopping list!"

"List? What list?"

I'd settle for having the groceries they promised me in the grocery store.

Safeway has a program they call JUST 4 U. They send you a presumably special list to your e-mail of things you normally buy, but at a substantial discount. They also give you a list of items reduced by coupons and store specials, which means you don't have to clip any coupons. Simply click on the ADD button and it's on your card.

Unfortunately my NOT 4 U list, consisting of items that are on my discounted lists that they didn't have, is usually longer than the JUST 4 U list. What good is it if they give you a buck and a half off a rotisserie chicken if you get to the store at 6:30pm, there are only two chickens left in the deli case, and they look like they have been fighting?

For six months they offered me 50 cents off a gallon (which is no longer a gallon!) of Blue Bunnie ice cream. The problem was, THEY DON'T SELL BLUE BUNNIE ICE CREAM!

GG, try Goggle-ing WalMartians, there are loads of you tube videos, very funny, but I won't post them here, some can be age-inappropriate for public viewing, plus I don't want to have my hand slapped here at DC, I'm still too new.

No worries. Google "People of Walmart," also NSFW.

i'll bet their "ready to eat" stuff like rotisserie chickens will sell faster.
