Walmart + Christmas Shopping = Torture

You know it's going to be a bad trip to Wal-mart when Every Single Cart in the entire store is gone. That's right. Zippo. No carts. Not a good start to a long shopping journey, that's for sure. Obviously this meant every last person in the Salt Lake Valley decided to mosey on out to Wally World on a Friday afternoon....not to shop, mind you, just to torture me. They seriously were all playing a game where the whole goal was to block my path at every turn. Unfortunately, the stuff I was getting was big which made it even harder to make my way around the overly populated store-of-hell. Surprisingly, the checkout line was short, but I got the checker who thought random items needed their own bag. I've decided incompetent cashiers are the reason for global warming - they're forcing us to use needless plastic bags, killing our resources, and increasing our carbon footprint. I seriously had like 1,000 bags when I got home (each one containing one thing). Lame! I've never been so happy to be home and done with Wal-mart. Phew!
