My wife and I were taking care of my sister’s animals while she and her family were out of town. The fish aquarium filter pump had gone out, so we went to Wal-Mart at around 10 pm on a Friday night to get one.
The scene was like one out of an Arnold Schwarzneggar or Sylvester Stallone movie. I felt like I was in a freak show. Most of the people were dressed rather poorly. My tennis shoes and jogging shorts actually looked good in comparison.
There were people with multi-colored hair, pants hanging down, and on and on. This included employees at the registers. People were hanging out in the parking lot and all around the store. People were in line at the little DVD rental red box. By the way, this is one example of how one idea can totally revolutionize an industry. Those little red and blue boxes shut down countless movie rental stores and made many landlords sad.
On the way home, we encountered two different drivers who were trying to share our driving lane with us……scary. I can recall the lesson from physics class that says that two different objects cannot occupy the same space without some sort of collision…..yikes. Maybe they overslept that morning in college.
