You Never Know What'll Happen at the Wal-Mart

So...I just got home from the Wal-Mart. The Sullivan Wal-Mart may be the smallest Wal-Mart in existence, but I did manage to score some trash bags (I was totally out) and soda pop (how retro) because the 'rents (that's cool 90's teen mag speak for parents) are coming and I hate to offer them a choice of water or water to drink. :)

ANYWAY...

The kids were getting cranky and it was raining a little and I'm sure I had about 8 different thoughts rolling around in my brain...and when I got home I realized I forgot to put the sodas into my car! It had only been about 10 minutes or so since we left the store, so I called the store just on the slight chance that maybe my poor pop was still sitting lonely and wet at the bottom of the cart in the cart corral. After waiting on the phone approximately 863 minutes, I was informed that the Diet Pepsi I had bought had been rescued and could be picked up at my convenience. The Sierra Mist, however, was nowhere to be found.

There you have it, folks. If you're going to steal someone's soda pop, don't steal the crappy diet stuff. Go for the gold!


Be sure to visit my friend Wendy's blog and participate in her "Life is Funny" blog carnival. If I can do it...surely you can get off your lazy bum and do the same. :)

Happy weekend to you! May your Wal-Mart travels be filled glee and criminals who hate diet soda...

I'm afraid of the possibilities among the crazy Walmart people who could have taken your soda... Old man w/fake boobs? Mullet man? The possibilities are endless. And even if it did show up later, I'd be a little suspect...

I'm with Wendy. After seeing those photos, I'd let them have whatever they asked for.

I think it is because criminals truly care about living a caffeine-free lifestyle.

I love how you say "the" Walmart. Sort of like Katdish says "the" twitter.

And then there's "the" soda. Did you check the security cameras? Surely the mullet-wearing, hiney-showing varmit is on camera!

Sorry about the soda, or as well call it down in Texas, "Coke". It's all coke, unless it's Dr Pepper.

Very odd....

If I'm gonna go to hell for stealing, I certainly would go bigger than Sierra Mist...(and of course, all the millions in Fort Knox isn't worth it...)
