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.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
