As expected it was a TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE! I hate the atmosphere, the people, the carts, the smell, the color of the walls, everything. Before I went I thought, GEE if I go there and I KNOW it's going to be a terrible experience then I will hustle and get outta there as fast as possible, thus only getting what I need and getting out. That is one of the positives and basically the only one. I swear every single aisle was crowded (I went at 4pm on a Monday, I clearly waited too late) and people were taking up the ENTIRE aisle and just standing there. It's like they were completely unaware that anyone else was even in the store.
I also noticed that no one and I mean NO ONE said excuse me, they just plow past you and act like you don't even exist. They might even scrape into the side of your cart and act like it didn't happen. Okay, I'm lying that was just added for Dramatic Effects...
Then one of the things that I hate MOST is that all of the toiletries and makeup are on the opposite side of the store. Of course by the time I get to the checkout the baby is starting to rustle around and getting antsy so I haul A over to the shampoo aisle and realize I forgot Trashbags, EFF!!! At this point I'm literally sprinting back to the other side of the store (literally opposite corners) to get the bags and get the heck outta there.
Finally made it to the checkout and the baby isn't screaming bloody murder THANKFULLY!!
One last and positive piece on shopping at Walmart is that I dropped a huge box of trashbags from the bottom of my cart and a man came running after me saying "Ma'am Ma'am you dropped something". That was a $16 box of trashbags, so I was so thankful that he brought it to me and didn't just stick it in his cart.
At Target my number one annoyance is the prices! But overall I wonder how much I really saved by shopping at Walmart, maybe 20 Bucks? Totally not worth the hastle!! However, when I go to Target I usually end up spending even more because I have to browse the purses, shoes, clothes, baby clothes, baby toys, home goods, essentially the whole store thus leaving with wayy more than I went in for.
If anyone even read that entire post (which I'm sure no one did), what is your opinion? Target or Walmart??
