The creepy people hangout

01 Jun 2011

Apparently, Walmart is not only a popular American chain store; it is also home to some of the weirdest and creepiest people across the country. PeopleofWalmart.com is a website that manages to capture these people on camera, and then posts the photos online for our viewing pleasure (or, more accurately, viewing disdain). You can also browse through entertaining news stories about Walmart (for example, a story was recently posted about a woman who tried to steal 159 DVDs from a Jacksonville, Florida Walmart store). So get ready to be amazed that some of these people are allowed out in public, and feel kind of relieved that we don’t have Walmart here in New Zealand... yet.www.peopleofwalmart.com
