Now I know why people hate this place. First off, why is it so dark & gloomy inside of Walmarts? Very depressing.
I called my local Walmart to ask if they had play sand, I was told yes, it was in the lawn & garden department. So the kids & I headed out to Walmart to buy some sand for their new sandbox.
Forty minutes later, six employees questioned later and countless trips back and forth between the toy & garden department, I finally find out that the play sand it outside. Oh and yeah, they have no more regular sand just colored sand.
I say fine I will take the colored sand, expecting it to be a little more. Well, it was a LOT more but I took it anyway even when the cashier stopped in the middle of ringing me up to bring some lady to the bulb isle. Yeah she just walked away in the middle of my order, no excuse me, nothing.

Then I was told I have to go out to my car & drive it around the building & put the 40lb bags of sand in my car. I was pissed at this point. So I did what any other pissed consumer with twins that just wanted to play with sand would do.
I stole an extra bag of sand.
Yup. I am not proud.
Well, yes I am, I am writing about it on the internet.

Take that Walmart, consider us even now.


  1. LMAO!!! I would have done the same thing, only I don't shop at Walmart, so I may not have been in your situation to begin with. YOU GO GIRL!!!

  2. YAAAAAAY! brilliant! i'm 100% behind that move!!!!

  3. Hey, you did what you had to do. It sounds fair to me, you earned it!

  4. HAHAHAHAHA that is too funny! WalMart pisses me off soooooo bad so they deserve it. Their stores have the worst service, the worst messes and it pisses me off to no end that when their stockers are stocking the shelves, they make no effort to move their crap so you can get down the aisle. Umm excuse me, but you won't need to stock those shelves if the customers stop coming to this dump! Ok, I feel better now

  5. Ooh you're a rebel!

    So what color is the colored sand??

  6. Love it! I hate Walmart.

  7. I almost did that last month at Toys R Us, not because I was pissed, but because it was just there, but I didn't. I didn't want the karma police to get me.

  8. LOL. I woe the days we have to go there. We try to plan "optimal" nights, like tuesday, after 8, when the sun isn't shining. Or some BS like that when they are likely to be like no people in the store.

    Generally speaking, I walk away a complete grump everytime I visit. And don't sweat taking that bag of sand ;)

  9. Our play sand came from Home Depot. I dislike Walmart, and our PX here is so small, the Target is in the next town over, crisis has struck!! We need more sand after our move, I'll be avoiding Walmart on that one.
