If these walls could talk...
I had a chat with my walls. They are quite shy, and didn't want to share today. So I thought and thought - and decided that there were a set of walls that must have lots of interesting stories to tell.
My imagination went wild, I tell ya!
I decided to focus my post today on the ubiquitous (go ahead, look the word up, I'll wait) walls of the fitting rooms at America's favorite discount chain, Wal-Mart.
They say the "walls have ears" - let me tell you, these walls have mouths, and they weren't afraid to open up and tell me stuff.
Here's what they wanted you all to know:
To the size 18 ladies trying on the size 14 bikinis? Quit trying to put eight pounds of sugar in a five-pound sack, ok? It's not going to fit. You'll rip the seams - and some little girl in China who sewed those seams will know; and she will cry when she goes to bed tonight. Shop in the Plus Size department already.
To the skanky women who try on clothes while they are going 'commando'?
Stop.it. You've already befouled the public restrooms (those walls talk, too). Stop in the Accessories department and pick up some Fruit of the Loom panties, then stop in Housewares and buy some soap and come back again after you've had a nice bath.
To the little kids with the constant nasal drainage?
Don't wipe your snot on me. It clashes with the nice blue wall color. And it's a dirty, nasty habit. Tell your mom to buy some tissues.
To the teenage couples who use one of our dressing rooms as their quickie love nest?
Get a room. Don't be talkin' nasty in here, other decent people can hear you...maybe even your parents. But first, stop in the Pharmacy department and buy some Trojans.
To the men who try on the most hideous clothes - picked out by their wife?
Have you no pride, man? Grow a pair and dress yourself. You look like a moron.
To the shoplifters? There just may be a camera in the fitting room. We're not sayin' there IS one, but we're not sayin' there ISN'T, either.
And we have LPOs (Loss Prevention Officers) watching to see if you come out of the room wearing the same outfit you had on when you went in. Rest assured that the outfit you are stealing looks a lot better on you than the jumpsuits at the local jail.
Oh, and here's what the cool fitting rooms have.
Stop by Mama Kat's and check out all the fun!
