Banned from Wal-Mart

This is why women should not take men shopping against their will.

DON'T TAKE HIM IF HE DOESN'T WANT TO GO...........

After Mr. and Mrs. Fenton retired, Mrs. Fenton insisted her husband
accompany her on her trips to Wal-Mart.

Unfortunately, Mr. Fenton was like most men--he found shopping boring
and preferred to get in and get out.

Equally unfortunate, Mrs. Fenton was like most women-she loved to
browse.
One day Mrs. Fenton received the following letter from her local
Wal-Mart.

Dear Mrs. Fenton,

Over the past six months, your husband has been causing quite a
commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and may be forced to
ban both of you from the store.

Our complaints against Mr. Fenton are listed below and are documented
by our video surveillance cameras.

June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people's
carts when they weren't looking.

July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute
intervals.

July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the
women's restroom.

July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice,
"Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away."

August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&M's on
layaway.

September 14: Moved a "CAUTION - WET FLOOR" sign to a carpeted area.

September 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told other
shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets
from the bedding department.

September 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying
and screamed, "Why can't you people just leave me alone?"

October 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a
mirror while he picked his nose.

November 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked
the clerk where the antidepressants were.

December 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while loudly humming
the " Mission Impossible" theme.

December 6: In the auto department, he practiced his "Madonna look" by
using different sizes of funnels.

December 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through,
yelled "PICK ME! PICK ME!"

December 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he
assumed a fetal position and screamed "OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!"

And last, but not least ....

December 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile,
then yelled very loudly, "Hey! There's no toilet paper in here!"

^^Perhaps.

But I hadn't seen it before and I thought it was hilarious.

But a good thing to hang on the refrigerator as a reminder of what could happen if she insists on going shopping.

I'm going to have to try that--
except I'll go to the gun counter--
and then pull out a vial and exclaim:

"oh no, where is the presciption department--
my antipsychotic meds are out. . ."

Better plan:

Get a cart and head to the automotive department and grab a battery and a pair of jumper cables. Then head over to hardware and grab a pair of heavy insulated gloves, put them on and head over to the pet department. There, grab an electric fence charger, hook it up to the battery and connect the charger to the cart.

Now you can push the cart through the store and have fun with the oblivious aisle blockers.

I had a friend who used to act like a mute and go and try to buy arrow heads and/or bullets for an Ak 47. Think about that for a second.

Awesome, take the old 100 things to do in a Wal-Mart, and chop it in to some horrible PoS chain e-mail bull****.

2manybikes, are you like 60?

Janurary 9th: Security camera footage subsequently showed your husband installing 1/4 megaton thermonuclear device into a Kenmore washer/dryer combo. It took los alamos and general electric technicians 7 hours to render the device inert. A 52 year old woman received severe radiation exposure on both hands and her face when she opened the pre-wash detergent compartment.

Kenmore nuclear appliances: for clothing so clean, they glow!

I'm a big fan of taking the small appliance dc power supplies and hot wiring them so that they shock people when they touch the display models. I usually carry a keychain sized SOGtool and some 16ga speaker wire just for this reason when at Wally World. The best part is when the victim ends up getting other people to touch it to verify that it's really shocking them ("tell me this don't hurt!")

Ha Ha! Yeah and sometimes when electrocuting strangers just isn't enough of a rush, I pull some unsuspecting person into my van and attack their genitals with arc welding gear! Ha Ha! Good times! The best part is when they scream for mercy, saying "This really hurts!".
