In my own voyeuristic way, I love the “People of Walmart”: The collected photos of Walmart customers from all over the US—world? Personally, the things I usually witness at my local Walmart are litter, crowds, and rude behavior. But then what do I know? I rarely shop there. But I would more often if I were guaranteed to run across some of these “terrorist”. Actually, I should make a point, as a concerned citizen for my country, to shop there to report any suspicious activity. Of course, what the gov’t considers suspicious and what I do is a tad grey. For instance: Once while shopping there on a rare evening of no crowds, a woman shopper felt compelled to invade my personal space and yell—no scream—for someone named William. This type of bellowing is acceptable if, say, you’ve lost your child and panic ensued, all manners of conventional, social etiquette, understandably, abandoned. But William—fog horned in more syllables than necessary—was a young adult who apparently needed tighter fitting pants.
Had I been a gov’t watchdog, I would have made a citizen’s arrest then alerted the emergency broadcast system a code red suspicious behavior. Looking at this video it is clear now what is considered suspicious. Watch it. Watch it now. Do not delay. Prepare yourself so there are no false alarms.
Do you have any Walmart stories to share?
