I''m Really Bothered By Something

So I am going to mount my soapbox and deliver my sermon. Fair warning.

I came to have a "joke" e-mail in my box. The first one I kinda laughed because it was a photo where someone is in a position where their pants are exposing their underware. I think it's fair to say that many of us have worried about coverage at one time or another. As I looked through them I began to see a pattern of overweight or cross-dressing people.

While making fun of peoplke is bad enough, it turned out these photos are all from WalMart security shots! That really burned me. Totally unacceptable and unprofessional for customer photos to end up as a joke - people laughing at them. To be an unwitting butt of a joke just because you shopped somewhere (supported them and gave them their money) is a travesty.

What next? I (or you) adjust my/your underware while alone in an aisle and end up being replayed and laughed at over and over on YouTube without my knowledge? I believe each of the people whose photos were shared deserved a big, fat check as an apology (hit em where it hurts). Better yet, I won't be stepping foot in there ever again because I don't want to risk becoming sombody's fool.

Exiting soapbox.

WOW..that is really something I would think I would sue over if it happened to me. I already hate shopping at Walmart, so very rarely ever do. I guess that is a good thing, considering this!!!!

are you talking about peopleofwalmart.com ? that is not a walmart organized thing that is people taking pictures with their cell phones of random people. It is meant to be funny and has nothing to do with Walmart it is all done by random customers taking the pictures of other random customers. I think it started because so many people go there looking inappropriately dressed. But its not supported by Walmart at all. They probably are not happy either!
