Walmart rant, embarrassing

What are the people who set up the shelves for Walmart thinking, or maybe they aren't.
I never had the need to consider this before this week, what are these people thinking when they put the Hemorrhoid, vaginal care and jock itch medicine on the shelves right next to the pharmacy checkout line
I'll just go ahead and throw this out here, I don't have jock itch or vagina problems, fill in the blank.

So, at least six people are standing in line to checkout and watching me agonize over which cream I'm going to choose to smear on my bung. I finally decide on the generic Walmart brand over the name brand and I suddenly become conscience of my audience, as if it weren't bad enough that they all know my bung isn't working right but now they know I'm a cheap bastard.
I guess my question to the jerks who set this store up would be "why not put the toothpaste and deodorant next to the check out line". For some reason I don't mind if everyone in town knows I use toothpaste and deodorant.

At least Walmart has "self checkout" so that's a plus.

End of rant, I've got to get up and walk around for a minute.

I really don't think you have much to be worried about in regards to the typical "audience" at Walmart.

Did the girl at the check out ask for a price check on hemorrhoid ointment over the store's PA system while you were standing next to the cash with 20 people in line behind you?

This thread is going south fast.......
But if we could go south just enough, we could all continue to ride.

So here is my contribution:

I have a friend who uses their generic K-Y for tube lube also. I cannot reveal his name though. But he swears by it.

Merry Christmas all !!

I am a walmart person! I dress the part and have the worst pant in the world with fake flys around the crotch area!

Here is a photo I took of the check out clerk for your entertainment!

Happy Holidays!

I am a Walmartian, I reluctantly admit it. I don't like that I am but the sad truth is, they are convenient to my house and, being a Super Walmart, they are always open and it's one stop shopping with the lowest grocery prices in town.
Now that I think about it, I'm more embarrassed about being in Walmart than I am buying pucker cream.
Again, thank goodness for a self-checkout, and no, I didn't stop by the restroom or the dressing rooms to try on my new purchase.
Another nice thing about Walmart is their liberal return policy, I probably won't be using it in the instance but it's an option if I choose to.
BTW, ass this is my first experience with this, I have nothing to really go on, butt, the generic Walmart brand seems to be doing a decent job, incase anyone cares.....Of coarse not, I didn't think so.

I wonder if the unused portion of my hemorrhoid cream can somehow be used when mounting tube tires to keep the tube from getting pinched between the tire and rim.

My wife worked at Walmart for three weeks. The placement of EVERYTHING is thought out, and is there for a reason. Sometimes it's the "impulse buy" thing, usually it's to prevent theft. It's embarrassing to buy these products, so if they hid them off in a corner, they'd lose a lot of product. Ever notice how the electronics department is clear in the back of Walmart? That's to prevent the theft of the most expensive, most desirable items in the store. The back of the store is set up even MORE to prevent theft, they actually trust their employees LESS than they trust their customers.

I love the fact you can laugh at yourself and have fun. I go to Walmart all the time. As far as the other items I will keep that private for right now! I have played hockey my whole life nothing works like it use too! LOL

Don't know about the tubes but it does work for the crow's feet around the eyes and for the bags due to hangover.

Or to keep your inner tube from becoming an outer tube.

The bag was a concern for me during application, I'm not as flexible as I used to be.
