Okay, I haven't posted without a picture in a while, but this one is going to be pictureless because I just HAD to vent my frustration and my love/hate relationship with Wal-Mart, bless their heart. There are somedays when I am soooo excited to go, to buy some more yarn for my Knifty Knitter for example, then there are days when I really don't want to go, like when all I need is vegetable oil and Beck is cranky already and we haven't even pulled in the parking lot yet.
Anyways, today was a good Wal-Mart trip day because Stephen was going with us and he always buys lots of things that we don't need and then he realizes that it's a good thing that I do the grocery shopping or else we'd be broke. So he was nice and bought me some yarn and a present for my sister and he got him and Beck some movies and we had a big long receipt, but anyways back to my story. He was checking out and I went out to the pop machines to get a Mountain Dew because they are 28 cents cheaper when you get it from the machine as opposed to getting it when you are in line and I got my pop and opened it while standing right by the machine and it exploded and made a big sticky mess all over the floor.
I went (waddled) over to the lady that gives you a cart (Picture big pregnant me, supposedly "taking it easy" and keeping this baby in a few more weeks) and said (very kindly mind you) "excuse me, my pop from the machine exploded, can I get someone to do a clean up, or help me?" and she says, "there's the mop bucket."
You should've seen my face. Ha! My jaw dropped and my eyes narrowed and of course I went over to the bucket and pushed the heavy sucker all the way back to the machines, all the while praying that my water breaks and I can sue this multi million dollar money stealer of a tyrant corporation, and I mopped up my mess and then went and asked for a wet floor sign. And you want to know the sad thing?
I will still shop there because a) cheaper b) one stop shopping with a toddler and a newborn is a good thing and c) they have the cheapest Mountian Dew 20 oz in town :) (I know that I should clean up my mess anyways without expecting other people to do it for me, but I am a cranky and emotional pregnant lady and this story wouldn't be very amusing if I admitted that at the first)
