I lied...

I know, that's bad. But does it count as lying if I ONLY typed it?! I said I would do a Baker family update with pictures but I am not. We are taking the desktop to the store to be fixed this weekend so the odds are better next week.

We went to Walmart today & I am amazed at the lack of customer service. I mean, I have blogged on it before, but it is just plain ridiculous. They have moved the balloons to layaway, but closed layaway & don't keep people back there, & when you finally track someone down for help, they have to call someone. And that someone has to come from customer service at the front of the store & she is the only one up there & the only one that can do balloons. OH, & we don't actually HAVE balloons, you have to go up front & get the bags & pay for them & THEN bring them back here....& if you stand on your head while eating a banana, and sing Happy Birthday, THEN we'll air them up for 25 cents a piece?!?!?! SHEESH!!! Needless to say, I am going to price them at Albertson's tomorrow...

When we left, I also was amazed at how rude our society is becoming. Not once, but twice, while trying to exit the parking lot, two different cars honked at someone else. None of it was directed at me but come on....have a little patience!!!! I get frustrated too but COME ON!!!!

I am off to be a domestic goddess...:)

Okay, if anyone has reason to hate Wal-Mart, it would be me (my husband does work for the retail monster, you know). But, I have to say that I have been to just as many Wal-Marts that have excellent customer service as have terrible...same thing with Targets, K-Marts or any other retail store. It's all about the management at each individual location...unfortunately, it seems as if most of the Wal-Marts in your area are managed by idiots. =)

Sorry, I had to stick up for my husband's paycheck...even if just for a moment. =)
