Speaking of Buying Cards at Wal-Mart


I might have been underdressed when buying a mother's day card for my wife last week...

Hmm, there must be a Wal-Mart on Rodeo Drive that she's referring to.

I mean, who wants to not wear slippers to the store?

Copyboy said...

Being a NYCer maybe I should say my peace.

I usually try to go in off hours so I won't be imtimidated by the fashionistas. there's a people of walmart web page...check it out and you'll see what I mean!

Joe Cap said...

I think she means she has to wear shoes.

Oz Girl said...

Is she serious here? I didn't realize I was supposed to dress up before I went to Walmart!!!!

Marlene said...

*snort* Well, some of the outfits I've seen being worn inside some Wal-Marts (not that I go very often - I can't stand the place, honestly) looks pretty "dress-up" to me! (Especially if you're playing the part of a street hooker in a play!)

I'm not a big Walmart fan. I dont' mind the store, it's the ownership I don't like. But...there is a BIG difference in customers depending on where you are. In my hometown, there is/was no mall, so Walmart was a social place and people do dress for it.

Where I live now, the shoppers have money and park their BMW's and Mercedes in the lot.

The best thing about Walmart is that they allow you park your RV in their lot when you are on the road. That's true at every Walmart in the country. Next time you drive by, look at the edges of the lot. Almost always at least a couple motor homes there...

Who ever said that must have never been to People of Wal-mart website. LOL Who gets dressed up to go to Wal-mart?? And what is the dress for the Dollar store?

Ms. Anthropy said...

Yep, I hate getting dressed up, too!

Lady Ren said...

Pat, have you seen the site
peopleofwalmart.com ?
if this is the first you have heard of it be warned it's a time suck-
I hate people who wear slippers out- It is so tacky- I don't care if you are wearing hundred dollar Ugg slippers- so tacky.
And yes I hate the people, not just the concept.

Geof said...

Hahaha! Awesome. I wonder when she says "dress up" for Wal-Mart, if she ever looked at the "People of Wal-Mart site.

Cheeseboy said...

The dollar store is a fine establishment in and of itself.

Sarah said...

Hahahaha I'm ALL over that one!!:P

sarahjayne smythe said...

ROTFLMAO! That is priceless. :)

Chuck said...

I just went to the People of Walmart site and lost an hour of my life I'll never get back. I also saw a picture that made me spit VitaminWater on my key board, so there's that.

faye said...

Too funny .. I saw an elderly lady in her nightgown at the local
Walmart...but I guess she was
dressed.

Jimmy said...

Have seen quite a few scary outfits at Walmart not on the racks but on some of the people, I don't suppose I was ever underdressed for them.

To agree with Pat I have noticed the RV's parking on their lots all over.

buymebarbies said...

Yes, there are several emails circulating around with pic's of "Walmartians." They are hilarious!! I personally don't like Walmart or go there!! Now that I know my cards come from there, I may have to check it out!!! Love you Honey!!

Micael "Rabbit" Chadwick said...

I think I have seen her...

Mr. Stupid said...

I have seen some crazy and a bit scary people at a Wal-Mart near my house. I would suggest them to put a dress code... hehe

Have a good day!

Penny said...

NICE!

Love your blog :)

Nariane said...

I'm normally dressed up (business casual)in Walmart but only cuz I go on my lunch break from work...

Hey Pat! I'm tagging along...

Georgina said...

When Wal-mart was open 24hrs here during the Christmas rush, I saw people in there late at night who really ought to have gotten dressed up. Or bathed at least. Flannel is not proper shopping attire people, unless you are in China, where it is all the rage right now. - G

Bendigo said...

Well at our local Wal Mart the dress usually involves some form of pajama pants, so I'm gonna guess this gal was going in underwear or a bathing suit to the dollar place...

Andrea said...

Spoken like a true Southerner! Wait...where was this woman from?

ASBLACKASOBAMA said...

I need to see her going to Wal-Mart outfit....

TS Hendrik said...

Clap clap clap. That woman is clearly high class.

Ashley King said...
