Hello, Welcome to Walmart

I’m a big fan of Walmart Bingo and the crazy funny emails of all the pictures of people who shop there.  But even I knew back in 2006 Walmart was going to be one of the only chains to kick some serious butt in this recession and grow exponentially.  I’ll admit I shop there to anyone who asks- I’m kinda honest like that.  I also try and encourage my close friends and family to save money by shopping there rather than Target.  Sue me.

Oh- and on that note- the portion below that your about to read is from an email that is circulating the internet world. I thought some of the stats were interesting so I’m posting it on my blog.  I did not write this nor can I credit the anonymous person who did.  I especially like the way the writer gets more and more heated as they continue on with their email- note the increase in exclamations and caps.  Do I really feel the need to check on these stats to see if they are valid?  Um, not really.  I’m going to roll with it.  The US Post Office always interests me and the link to this article is a good one to tag onto for more info: Facts the US Post Office Doesn’t Want You to Know
