Number One: My grandfather once said there was a lot of goofy stuff in Britain and I believe he was right. American here. Damn Yankee. 1. driving on the wrong side of the road 2. having a queen 3. iron-fisted gun control 4. excessively narrow city streets 5. pollution of the Thames River 6. bagpipe men in plaid skirts 7. perverse and even nonsensical song lyrics in pop/rock music, check out some of that early stuff by David Bowie and Jethro Tull and see what I mean, check out The Walrus by The Beatles 8. those wild Elton John glasses, spectacles 9. income tax rates that are medieval, wicked, barbaric and cruel , even George Harrison sang a song detesting it 10. anti-Catholic sentiment Number Two:Walmart is the chits. I went in there last Saturday night an hour before closing. This was the Neighborhood store in Lawton, Oklahoma. I had a cartload of stuff and was too lazy to use the self-checkout. I could only see one person, a fat young fair-complexioned woman in glasses, working one of the checkstands but she put a closed sign on her counter. I asked her if there was a "human being" that could ring me up. She said, "You mean a cashier?" I said, "Yeah". Then she said no, unless I had a "tax exempt" card which I don't. I then told her I wanted to speak to a manager. Then she said reluctantly that she would ring me up. She did finally ring me up. I told her I expected a live person to be ringing customers up until they shut the store down. She then said usually they did but they didn't anticipate the store's being so slow at that hour so they sent everybody else home. There were still quite a few people shopping in there. I don't mind using self checkout if I have a handful of things as it's usually faster but for a full shopping wagon I want a store worker to ring me up and bag my stuff. A week ago I went to the Walmart Supercenter on QPT here in town and asked the middle-aged fair-complexioned broad there that I was look for a spool of white thread. She said, "What?" I said, you know, that stuff that you put on a needle to sew with. The sewing basket stuff. I use thread for my home hobbies like model airplane building. Then she showed me the aisle where it was. Walmart hires a bunch of mental retards for sure. She doesn't know what THREAD is because women don't sew at home anymore maybe. In another Walmart in CA, I once asked a male worker of sub-Saharan African descent there for Darigold milk. He said do you mean goat milk? then I had to spell the brand name out for him then he showed me chocolate milk in that brand. I said no, white milk and that brand but it turned out they were out of it. I guess this airhead thought I said DAIRY GOAT.
