    Shortest trip to the nearest may not have what you need but that’ll do place. If I don’t feel like driving and dealing with traffic, that’s where I’m goin’. In and out. No shame in my game. Lol. :D

    no joke, some of the "people of walmart" series was filmed in the walmart that was once across the street from the new one in my town.

    i live in a funny place, in the same square mile that the walmart is in there is a range of people from homeless $5 prostitutes and 18 million dollar mansions mixed together.

    Of course not, it wouldn't make any sense to put an IKEA inside another IKEA.

    Shoppers at IKEA think I work there. It's very odd.

    The Walmarts in my area are kind of like that, but not quite as big a range. From people barely scraping by having to put stuff back that they don't have enough money for to the people in the new developments that have gone in that are in 3500sq ft houses and have multiple cars in the 70grand range. Makes for interesting interactions.

    Also very diverse.

    On a side note....
    Over the last five weeks, grandmas blood sugar has been on the decline.
    Last night it was 106, the lowest it has been.

    I hear you. I can’t stand that place. Gives me the creeps. Crowded as heck. Takes forever. The one here doesn’t have readily accessible emergency exit routes. One on the 2nd floor all the way in the corner on the far end of the store. Yeah, it’s there, but it’s not easy to get to. Especially regarding the way they funnel you through the store. Roadblocks everywhere. On a very crowded day, if something were to go wrong, it could be disastrous. Been there once. Never been back.

    My wife likes it though...have at ‘er babe. :whistling: I’ll be here waiting...looking forward to assembling the particle board and 1 million chinesium parts.

    I am not that tall but I come from a family of fast walkers. My kid is the same. We don't hate Ikea, but the maze they put you through is really annoying if you get stuck behind slow perambulators.

    What i really cant stand is when two grossly obese people are standing there yakking and blocking the entire isle. People are so terrible nowadays they wont even step aside to let you pass. As a matter of fact, they wont even acknowledge someone who wants to get by. Ive found it best just to turn around and go all the way around just to get something i need thats three feet on the other side of them.

    Yeah. Never fails. Sweat beading up on the brow. At the ready to mad dash it and make a B-line through the displays. Knocking stuff everywhere. Arms flailing, legs kicking trying to find the only set of steps down or that conveniently placed emergency exit. “Let Me Out, Let Me Out”!!! “RRRRAAAAWWWRRR”
    Lol.

    Try the shop from home thingy!
    This way you don’t have to really deal with people.
    Now I’m going to hide back under my rock :whistling:

    I just can't suspend disbelief. Going to Walmart is second only to shopping for guitars in awesomeness

    Best time to go is early on Sunday mornings.

    The church crowd is getting ready or going to church.

    The drunks are hung over.

    Other folks sleeping in.

    The store is all yours and wide open. In and out in half the time.

    Good luck.
