How is it possible that Wal Mart can read my mind? Of course it’s not for the good but only to push my “I hate Wal Mart” button.
Today we went to Wal Mart to return a few things and get four items.
- mouth wash
- corn starch
- baking powder
- door lock
Seems like they knew we were coming because they had only two of the four items in stock. That’s 50% which is just as close to zero as it is 100%. They are always out of the mouth wash that Devin likes but I’m onto them. Whenever they actually have it in stock I get two or three. Then there is the baking powder. Of the three options the shelf said they had, there of course was but one option to buy: a huge mother can that would last us a couple of years. Normally, that’s not a problem. However, since baking powder really does go bad, there was no way we could use it all up before it started giving us flat waffles.
So we stuck it to them. None of this “we’ll just get what they have” business.
