People Of Walmart: People Have Actually Lived In Walmart

A homeless couple in Memphis, Tennessee lived in a Walmart attic for two years. What's even weirder is how they were discovered.

Most people know Walmart for their cheap prices, controversy, or wacky customer stereotypes. People of Walmart include various viral photographs of customers, as seen below.

However, People of Walmart does not just include strange customers, but strange inhabitants as well. Like this one homeless couple, who lived in a Walmart attic for two years. These particular People of Walmart come from a story about a particular store in Memphis, Tennessee.

Apparently, employees in the break room heard a pounding in the attic above them. What could've been an exploding pipe or rooftop malfunction was instead a homeless couple, having intercourse, in what was their home.

The magic of Walmart is that you can get virtually anything you need there. Food, furniture, health products, school supplies, entertainment, clothes, house goods - Walmart has it all. This homeless couple in their late 40s-50s had access to everything - including the Queen size bed they were caught on. Other stolen goods included a TV, mini-fridge, surround sound system, bedroom set, and a hot plate, which they used to cook meth. All of Walmart's food and drinks were of access to this couple, which is likely what sustained them living in this attic for two years. The couple can be seen below.

Even more interestingly, this isn't the first time someone has tried to live in the magical world of Walmart. Two years ago, a 14-year-old boy in Texas channeled the same genius as the homeless couple. Although he couldn't find an attic, he made forts in the baby products aisle and the toilet paper aisle. Since Walmart has clothes, he changed his to avoid being noticed, and used diapers to avoid bathroom use. He only lasted up to four days, which is still pretty impressive, since my own personal tolerance of Walmart is around four minutes.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.
