I would like to contest the $30,000 to $40,000 revenue figure at an average WM. Where did you get that number?
That's per hour 24/7/365. (on average)

Me, too!

I'll bet Walmart is self insured. But frankly, I wouldn't mind paying, say, $5 or $10 just to park overnight if it came to that. They could sell RV overnight passes at the checkout line.

Sorry all you Lone Stars. I knew it was Kerrville. I spent a week there one day. Spell Checker missed it. It has Kerr-Ville, Kerrville and Kerrill, but no Kerrville. It does now.

I'm on Vicoden and Baclofen for sciatica and have a dent in my forehead that resembles a space bar.

3)Make a trail of orange juice on the floor to the rest rooms.
4)Walk up to an employee and tell him/her in an official tone, "I think we have a code 3 in housewares," and see what happens.
5)Put some M&M's on lay away.
6)Move CAUTION WET FLOOR signs to carpet areas.
7)Set up a tent in the camping department, tell others you'll only invite them in if they bring pillows from the bedding department.
8)When someone asks if they can help you, begin to cry and ask, "Why won't you people leave me alone."
9)Look right into ! the security camera and use it as a mirror while you pick your nose.
10)Dart around suspiciously while humming the theme from 'Mission Impossible.'
11)While handling guns in the hunting department ask the clerk if he knows where the anti-depressants are.
12)In the auto department practice your Madonna look using different size funnels.
13)Hide in the clothing rack and when people browse through whisper "PICK ME! PICK ME!!!!!"
14)When an announcement comes over the loud speaker assume the fetal position and scream "NO! NO! It's those voices again!"
15)Go to the fitting room and yell real loud....."Hey we're out of toilet paper in here!"

Here's only 15. Google "Things to do at Walmart"
3# and #8 crack me up. Visualize #3.
Hmmm, I really like #15,...
but then, I'm a real stinker.

When I saw a dying mouse in Lowe's last week, I told an employee: Clean-up in aisle 22, a mouse is trying to die. She went screaming for a male associate.

I would have done the same thing, screamed for a male associate. I ain't lying, ask my wife! I hate mice, rats, hamsters, all of them!

I've been called the "Class Clown", among other things. Probably some things I don't want to know about.
