21 Thoughts You Have Shopping At Walmart When You Absolutely Dread Shopping At Walmart

You tell yourself you're never coming back to Walmart every time.

Shopping at Walmart

Have you ever dreaded going somewhere? I know you have. Maybe you dread getting a haircut, going to the doctor or just getting out of bed (we've all been there).

For me, I dread going to a particular place. I dread going to Walmart.

Don't get me wrong here. Walmart has some good qualities. The prices aren't usually too bad, and they often have a variety of items to choose from. The only reason I can't stand going to the store is that I have the same thoughts every time I go there.

There's the familiar sight of hundreds of people running around the store like maniacs trying to find what they need. Then there's that smell. It's a Walmart smell.

If you've ever found yourself questioning life, or just Walmart in general, you can definitely relate to these.

1. Let’s just get this over with.

I'll be in and out in 10 minutes. This will be a fast trip. (Three hours later…)

2. These stupid carts are the worst.


Why do the wheels never work on these shopping carts, and why do they always make weird sounds?

3. It smells in here.

Do you smell that? It's Walmart. It's a mixture of food, cleaning products and something you can't quite figure out.

4. It's so crowded. I can’t move.

I can't even turn my cart around. I'm stuck on this aisle.

5. I think I’m lost. This store is like a maze.

I just needed one thing, and now I can't find my way out.

6. Wait, paper towels used to be in this aisle. Where’d they go?

They moved the darn paper towels again.

7. That kid is too old to be pitching a fit.

How old is that kid? He must be at least 10.

8. Wow, he’s pitching a fit over Goldfish.

Really? He's crying over Goldfish?

9. There are so many babies crying.

These babies can cry really loudly.

10. I’m about to join those crying babies.


If I don't leave here, I will start crying like these babies.

11. Why does no one ever smile?

I never see anyone who works here smile…

12. I wonder if the people who work here enjoy their jobs.

If you don't like people, don't work here.

13. Why is the floor sticky?

There's something on the floor. I'm scared to look.

14. Why do people walk so slow?

I will bump my cart into yours if you don't move.

15. I’m not even halfway through this store.

This store just goes on forever…

16. I can’t find anything. STOP REARRANGING THE STORE.

Why do they have to move everything?

17. Now to find an open checkout lane.

Please let there be an open lane or a short line.

18. Why are only three people checking out customers?

WHY? The store is packed. There needs to be more than three open checkout lanes.

19. I’m never going to leave here.

I'll be here for another hour easily.

20. HOLY COW. Did I really just drop that much money here?

It's so easy to spend a fortune here.

21. I loathe this place.

I really can't stand this store, but I know I'll be back next week.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
