Some People

Avoiding the issue only gives it time to fester, so I am attacking it head on...like popping a zit. The issue is some people...as in people who have no clue, or DO and just doesn't care, what they look like going out in public. I'm not talking about no makeup, ponytail, flip flops and dark sunglasses kind of look. No. The look I am referring to can be found at http://www.peopleofwalmart.com/; yes, it is an actual site.
My DH hits upon some pretty outlandish sites, but this one takes the cake in my book. It's not too racy (though parental guidance is advised when viewing in the company of children), but it does contain some pretty disturbing photos of what you may run in to (if you haven't already) at your local Wally World.

I recently viewed this site at a friends house the other night. We all sat around with our beer and wine laughing our butts off at the photos and declared a peopleofwalmart war. Basically whomever can get the best photo of the most outlandish Walmart dweller. In this day and age of technology it is fairly easy to do so with discretion. No need to go 'mission impossible' about this, although sneaking through the aisles as we stalk the latest fashion victim humming the tune to...oh God, now the tune is stuck in my head: dun nuh nuh, dun nuh nuh, dun na...nah nah nahhhhh nah nah nahhhhh na na. And now it's stuck in yours.

Sadly, I now check this site regularly to make sure I or someone I know is not on it! I declare this war, that has already begun, to run through to Halloween when the really good pictures are sure to pop up! Happy Hunting!

I often leave my home looking just awful (2+ days without a shower, ponytail, dirty t-shirt, flip flops, etc.), but looking at this totally makes me feel better! Clearly I'm a little too hard on myself because there are people out there who SHOULD NOT be leaving their homes without sprucing themselves up a tad first!

Popped over here from The Mother Load. Congrats on your award! I love that website. I keep thinking I'll see some family members on there...,

I don't shop at Wal-Mart and now this makes me a little sad that I don't (not really actually). Would it look bad if I just sat out in the parking lot with my camera?? Yeah, probably so...

@Erin, I too do the dark shades/pony tail/flip flops, but with a modicum of awareness that I need to go in and get out as quick as possible so as not to be seen.

@kyslp, I think my son's old baseball coach is on there!

@Elain, I was sitting in the parking lot with my son waiting for my hubs to grab milk and you would be surprised at the pictures that could have/should have been taken! Do it! LOL!
