Sometimes I wish this site had a "Like" button.
I've got 4 Wally World job killers in my neighborhood and I stay away from all of them.

Someone at Walmart is going to get fired over this. Not because they want the pictures - but because the $10million they will spend on their lawyers fighting in court they probably could have offered $1 million to buy the stuff.

There's a Walmart just two miles from my home. I boycott it. I'll boycott it for you, too, if you like. ;)

Thank you. You are now my official surrogate boycotter.

I've been boycotting them for years. The only time I'd set foot into one is if there is absolutely nothing else around to buy what I need. Luckily that never happens :-)

I am quite sure that this could have been settled with a nice dinner and a couple of beers. But hey, lawyers need to feed their family as well....

Boycotting is not always easy or obvious.

For example, my mouse is dying. I have two choices: buy one from Walmart here in town; or drive 50 miles to the nearest city to buy one from Best Buy. Both of them are crappy retailers and I hate them both. What do you suggest I do?

Oh yes, I could order one online, and pay $15 shipping for a $10 mouse!

Leeches don't stick around to feed their mate or their young. ;)

I have this theory - can't really prove it - but if people cut out lawyers, quit suing every chance and legitimately tried to compromise on things that it would save people trillions of dollars a year.

Are you sure it's the floor? Maybe it's your shoes that are sticky!
