Walmart is great if you want to get paper towel, electronics, and cereal rather cheap, but the real riches come in the form of the people that you see there.
Long story short, there's always a story, and half of the time you could swear you saw that story told on a recent episode of Maury Povich. That's to say that the crowd is...interesting, and if you need any more proof, check out some of these shots from People of Walmart.
If there's a whole website dedicated to this crowd, you know it has to be so bad it's good.
All for one...
via: People of Walmart...and one leopard-print onesie for all! Take notes for your next family shopping trip.
Dress to Impress
via: People of WalmartGoing out to the club? Be sure to get all fancied up and hit the local Walmart first, making sure to flash a smile (and only flash a smile) at the camera.
via: RedditWhat? You've never seen a Walmart conga line? This is how it's done, folks.
via: RedditThis pair of shoes defeats the purposes of both sneakers and heels!! This is the most useless shoe. How? Why? Whyyyyyy?
via: RedditNana was not happy about the 'Nana Slicer. Sure, they probably meant "Banana," but they couldn't use the whole word for some reason. The next one is hilarious...
What the Duck?
via: People of WalmartWhere's the bread? TAKE ME TO THE BREAD, WOMAN!
via: RedditThis Redditor wrote, "Just walking through Walmart when I see an Amish guy playing video games. He saw me take the picture and we both had a little laugh."
Catching Some Zs
via: People of WalmartOkay, come on now. I know that shopping can be exhausting, but at least camp out in the tent aisle or finagle your way into a hammock. USE THE RESOURCES AT YOUR DISPOSAL.
Speaking of naps...
via: RedditShopping is exhausting. This girl gets it.
via: People of Walmart"So, I want to get Glamour Shots taken, but I don't want to go to the mall." "Dude! Go to Walmart and hulk out in the cheese section!" Not a gouda idea. The next one is...interesting...
Ride em, cowboy.
via: RedditThis post had the best Reddit headline I've ever read: You've yee'd your last haw. - BambooKat
Gotta get a little cushion down there.
via: RedditWal-Mart has a lot of bread, right? It can stand to lose a couple of loaves so this lad can avoid bending at the waist, right?
Land that I looooove.
via: RedditI know it's mean to laugh at someone falling over at Wal-Mart. But that American flag overlay? Making it seem like this, this, is what our founding fathers fought for? That is very, very funny.
She is tall, and therefore, she is mighty.
via: RedditThese platforms are out of control, to be sure. But there's one other detail I love about them. they make her have to hunch over to reach her shopping cart. The platform heels were a monkey's paw! She wished to be taller, only to regret what it does to her back!
That's an actual dead coyote.
via: RedditI cannot, for the life of me, wrap my head around this thinking. You kill a coyote in self-defense, or to save a roadrunner? Okay, I get that. But why bring it inside a Wal-Mart? Worst case, you could always leave it in the car.
Lot going on here.
via: RedditI know this guy looks insane, but there's a story being told here by his many disparate fashion choices. He's patriotic (as evidenced by the hat), a detective (the trenchcoat), and also, super relaxed (the flip-flops). that must mean solving crimes in his home country of America is no big deal for him. Ladies and gentlemen, this is Sherlock Holmes. Oh wait, he's British. So why the hat? Maybe this is a bigger mystery than I thought. How far down does the rabbit hole go...?
Yes, that is a tail.
via: RedditWhatever you do, do not pull it. Do NOT.
Surprisingly, they're registered at Target.
via: RedditA Wal-Mart wedding isn't something I'd ever consider, but you can see why this might be a good idea to someone. Weddings are expensive, and Wal-Mart always has low prices. Always.
His jaw. Is on. The floor.
via: RedditIt is very funny to me how shocked this guy is about how many bananas are being bought here. Although he realized there was nothing unusual going on when he saw that the guy buying all these bananas was Donkey Kong.
"My pants are staying up come hell or high water."
via: RedditI know this man is in the Wal-Mart Subway (why are there always Subways or McDonald's in Wal-Marts?), but there is no doubt in my mind he's asking what aisle they keep the suspenders in. No doubt. In my mind.
"Lemme take a break here bud."
via: RedditMy man here is using Oscar Mayer pre-cooked microwave-ready bacon as a cushion. Hopefully whatever doesn't stick to his butt when he stands up gets a discount.
What's she hiding in there?
via: RedditNo way does someone have hair that tall and not use it to hide a bottle of champagne, or a yoga mat.
Those threads are hot. And salty.
via: RedditIf you've ever been to college you're both familiar with and forever indebted to ramen noodles. But I cannot, for the life of me, imagine having such brand loyalty that I'd buy sweatpants about them.
"Is that a long-sleeve shirt sir, or... oh. Well. Hmm."
via: RedditMost of the time, the security guard will stop anyone who enters Wal-Mart who is violating the "No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service" rule. But this guy does look like he might be wearing a shirt, so I could see whatever guard was working the day this guy came in taking the path of least resistance.
The greatest of all time.
via: RedditNo, that's not Tom Brady in that pouch. It's an actual goat.
Anarchy! Destruction! Yuletide greetings!
via: RedditSo sick that Santa is opening for The Misfits this summer at the Warped Tour.
Pwning noobs in the Wal-Mart is still pwning noobs.
via: RedditImagine you're a Call of Duty player getting just destroyed — killed over and over again — by the same guy. And then you find out that guy's sitting in a shopping cart at a Wal-Mart. Does that make it hurt more or less?
Let the cockfight begin!
via: RedditI've got my money on the store manager!
I just can't with you.
via: RedditMan, that's just a bad idea in every conceivable way. I feel for this guy, and also wish I could reach through my monitor, shake him, and scream "why are you like this?!"
I like it when the pants match the top.
via: RedditIt looks like this lady crocheted herself a jumpsuit! Maybe Wal-Mart will notice how stylish it looks and add it to the fall collection? (Does Wal-Mart have a fall collection? Honestly never thought about that before.)
Just a couple of buddies in a parking lot. What's so weird about that?
via: RedditThe giraffe said, "a lot of people say I rescued him, but really? "He rescued me."
Let's see you escape grandma's kisses now.
via: RedditI wonder what this kid did to get himself handcuffed to the shopping cart? Probably demanded to use it to play Call of Duty.
Are ya ready, kids?
via: RedditYou have to be pretty self-aware and confident to realize that your body type is "the exact dimensions of cartoon character SpongeBob SquarePants"... ... and then lean into it. Massive kudos to this lady.
"Hey hon, I'm just gonna hoof it over to Wal-Mart real quick."
via: RedditI'm not here to judge — I actually think those are some mighty stylish hoofs. I just wonder if they're super practical to wear to Wal-Mart?
Shiver me timbers.
via: RedditAt first, this just looks like an eccentric old man bringing his parrot to Wal-Mart. No harm, no foul. But then you notice the trail of bird poop down his back, and realize yes harm, yes foul.
"Hmm, something's gettin' in the way of the scanner..."
via: RedditAnother truly incredible Reddit comment: This is why my damn fruits cost so much. - DoctorWhoniverse
via: RedditI want to believe this is a picture taken earlier in the life of that guy with the suspenders.
Now that looks cozy.
via: RedditListen, if you're gonna wear a purple fuzzy monster onesie, you gotta rock that purple fuzzy monster onesie. And these ladies? These folks rock that purple fuzzy monster onesie.
A riddle wrapped in an enigma with the upper thighs and lower butt cut out.
via: RedditI do not understand. These were one complete pair of pants at one time, were they not? Like, of all the parts to cut off of your jeans, I would think that part would be the last part you'd cut off before you just threw them out, right? Right?!
This is more of a Barnes & Noble thing, isn't it?
via: RedditLook, that looks very comfy, and I do not blame this man for taking a break in the middle of what must have been a long day of shopping. But what I really want to know is... how did he get up there? Does this man got hops?
We See You Rollin'
via: People of WalmartAll they really need is a "Just Married" sign and some cans tied to string dangling from the back for a truly romantic moment. Either that or he just picked her up over in aisle six.
A Bright Idea
via: RedditThis was found in a Walmart parking lot. What, it's red! It works!
via: People of WalmartWondering what you're looking at? Perhaps some weird pink snake monstrosity. WORSE. Those. Are. Her. Nails.
via: RedditOnly at Walmart... There's no way for this to happen unless it was on purpose. That's just the truth.
via: People of WalmartThis is a man who knows what he loves and he shows that love through his clothes. Gotta respect that. The next one is so perfect...
Without the P, It's Harmacy
via: RedditOnly at Walmart do you see a guy waiting patiently for a giant P to fall on him so he can sue the store. That's some dedication right there.
via: RedditYes, baby. This is the appropriate face to make in reaction to everything you see at Walmart.
Tis the Season!
via: People of WalmartIt's just Mr. and Mrs. Claus doing some shopping. Nothing to see here.
Legging It Out
via: People of WalmartWelcome to Walmart Fashion Week, where here we have bright fuchsia leg warmers and sandals paired with a unitard!
If the Shoe Fits
via: People of WalmartIt’s all business as usual until look down at his feet and realize this is a man who is serious about his footwear. Props to him. I can't even walk in those things. The next one is shocking...
via: People of WalmartFor those moments when you're torn between taking a nap in your adult Hello Kitty onesie pajamas, walking the dog, or making a return at Walmart. Why choose just one when you can do it ALL?!?
Think you've seen everything? Well, you probably haven't seen a woman belting out The National Anthem inside a Walmart yet. Until now...
via: People of WalmartThe fun isn't confined to just the inside of the store. Oh, no. There are people just waiting to make your acquaintance out in the parking lots, too.
via: People of WalmartSee? MORE HAIR. Entirely too much hair.
via: People of WalmartIt's as if a ballerina and Superman somehow joined forces but left him without any of the cool superpowers. The next one might actually make you jealous...
via: People of WalmartWe have a winner. That dog is officially cooler than any of us will ever, ever be.
via: RedditThis little girl knows what she wants and by god, she's going to take it! Look at her strut her stuff.
via: RedditOnly at Walmart. There are so many reasons to ban the Confederate flag. This is just one of them.
via: People of WalmartI can't be certain, but I think I see four calling birds, three French hens, two turtle doves, and a partridge lodged in that thing.
via: RedditThis was found on a tablet in the store. Obviously, this is what you're supposed to do with tablets in Walmart. Obviously. The next one qualifies as "quite a sight"...
Where Are the Clothes?
via: Reddit"Hello? Yeah, I'm just checking out now. What do you mean you found my clothes on the floor— OH MY GOD."
Pretty In Pink
via: People of WalmartDude, you do you. You want to rock some Jem and the Holograms hair, you go for it.
Grin and Bare It
via: People of WalmartWhat could she be wearing? A shower curtain? A bikini top? The possibilities are endless...and frightening. Mostly frightening.
Baby on Floor
via: RedditThis is extremely not what you're supposed to do. But when you're that in the mood for a Slurpee... I kinda get it.
via: People of WalmartApparently Walmart is the place to go for innovative hairstyling ideas. I didn't say they were good ideas, but hey, to each their own.
