I stopped in at Wal-Mart for about fifteen minutes and I was absolutely shocked at what I saw. I’ll start by saying that I was in the store around mid-day, maybe 12 noon-ish. What shocked me was just how many people were in the store and, more to the point, how gigantic some of the women were.
I don’t mean for this post to come off as sexist or any other “ist” that the extremists out there might be able to conjure up, but I think what I ran into at Wal-Mart was a mid-day rush by a bunch of local housewives. And if this is the condition that the local housewives are in, then Neptune Township really needs to consider some type of public health campaign for its citizens to address this issue. And it wasn’t just the size that shocked me, but almost every single huge person I walked by had a tremendous odor. Personal hygiene is so critically important – especially now that diseases like swine flu are expected to hit the country hard.
It was just shocking. I had never seen so many large, loud mouthed, smelly people in my life. And in truth, while the scene appeared to be about 75% larger housewives there were also people walking around where I wondered, “Don’t these people have jobs?” Sure, I was walking around, but as I’ve already stated – I’m on a staycation. Could that many people really be on vacation, too? Did I stumble upon masses of people that live off of the government’s (and, ultimately, our) dole? What the hell was it?
