I've no problem if people want to bash Wal-Mart as a corporate entity, but is it really necessary to make insulting statements about the people that shop there?

By definition it must be way more difficult to make harsh comments about the people who doesn't shop at Wal-Mart since that is a much more disparate group.

How can you tell how someone paid for their purchase while sitting outside?

Why do you care?

Why are you sitting outside a Walmart for hours on end? Is it in the hopes of proving your hypothesis that manner of payment is discernible by appearance?

What shared characteristics stand out the most in the individuals you have deduced to have used food stamps?

Enlighten us all with this keen perception you've developed.

Sorry about that. Our comments are only for those people who frequent a Walmart other than the one you go to.

There's plenty of not so smart people here too.... me for example, and there's of plenty of very smart people who are quite nice and even helpful (I just usually ignore the folk who are too clever for their own good).

Yeah, same here.

Plus, you can walk in and get what you need without worrying about a dress code. If I'm calking, repairing nail pops, painting, found out the toilet is running or have to run in and grab cream for my poison ivy rash or something to get paint splatters out of my hair, I'm not going to get dressed up to go to Walmart.

Not like I would to go to a mall, or go out to eat.

One of the nice things about getting old is that you hardly ever worry about a dress code. When I was a kid, I was often mortified at what my father would wear to town, "They don't care how I'm dressed as long as my money is green." Now, when I crawl out of bed, brush my teeth, pull a cap over my head and head to town to spread some green. They really don't care.
