An Open Letter to Wal-Mart

Dear Wal-Mart,

Shopping in your store is not a pleasant experience for me, but I do it because your prices really are the best. I can get groceries for my pack of wild dogs beautiful family without spending the equivalent of the national debt.

With gas prices at almost $5 a gallon for the Diesel Rig, I have to do what I can to save money.

I realize that in order for you to bring me groceries at these rock bottom prices you too must cut costs. I am sympathetic to your plight and I appreciate your willingness to cut corners for my bottom line.

However, if you continue to skimp or the air conditioning in your store, I will be forced to shop elsewhere. I can tolerate the constant beeping of the scanners, I can overlook the disorderliness, I can ignore the screaming child and the wobbly cart. But I simply will not tolerate sweating while I do it.

Saving money by skimping on the air conditioning in your stores on the surface of the sun in Texas is simply not wise.

Until you remedy this oversight I will have to shop at my local grocery store. It cost more, but they have their air properly conditioned.

Yours,

A Dissatisfied and Stinking Hot Customer

this cracks me up b/c I was just about to post about the lack of proper A/C in Madrid... and extol the benefits of the freezing A/C in Texas. Oh well! :-)

That is what is so shocking Becca!

Last year I had to practically bring a jacket to Walmart, and I am always so cold in most a/c'd places.

But somehow Walmart has decided to forgo excessive A/C.

This is Texas...we NEED excessive A/C!
