Walmart- Are you kidding me??

March 20th, 2011 at 09:46 pm

First...stopped by the hospital to see the baby. WOW. She is beautiful and big! 23 inches...9lb 7 oz. The babys dad was there, first time Ive met him- he looked about 15 (but he is barely 18). Had the baseball hat on with the brim up and to the side...Mommy's mother was there too and it was easier to see why the lack of support after meeting her. Boy Im being judgemental...but my goodness. Daughter just had a baby a few hours earlier and is trying to learn to nurse and mom INSISTS on getting a 'family photo' first. Pushy and inconsiderate. I left after about 3 minutes- before I said something where it was not my place. I know the nurses see it all..but I have to wonder when they see kids this young becoming parents. (Young both age and maturity for these two).

Ok...end of that rant....on to the next...

Stopped by Walmart on the way home to pick up a couple of necessities.

No kidding...A walmart worker lady was standing at a table right after you walk in. I smiled at her and said hello and must have looked like a good target...because she bee-lined over to me and asked if I wanted a walmart credit card. I politely said NO and kept walking. But she walked right along with me- clearly not getting my NO. She says...its like FREE MONEY. I stopped and looked at her and said 'Really, how is that?"...she said ..."Well, just ignore the bill when it comes".

I think she was kidding...but seriously? This is the ploy to get people to sign up for your credit card?

I had much I could have said, but bit it and simply smiled and said no thank you and walked on. She must have got it this time because she stopped following me.

I wonder what the Walmart big wigs would think about this method of selling credit cards?

My trip to Walmart netted me laundry soap, fabric sheets, a new light bulb for the bathroom, sleepaid, and chocolate to get rid of this grumpiness Big Grin...

The hub is making roast chicken for dinner. He is cooking it in a cast iron pot with lemon, garlic and rosemary...with asparagus. Umm...who is this guy??? lol. Loving his new hobby for sure!!

    Yes, the folks working in the stores can talk all they want about "free money" but it's your credit rating that would get ruined if you actually did what she said.

    Oh my!! Ready to come to your house for dinner! :-)

    As for mom of new mom, ugh! I think 3 minutes was a good record! Don't know if I could have lasted 1.

    Good luck with the chocolate!
