Wal-Mart does seem to be inevitable. My wife and I try to keep are trips to the temple of "cheap plastic crap" at certain times of the week/day. Avoid the weekends in every possible way. Even the evenings during the week can be hectic. The target time is later at night during the week and, more and more these days we come with a list. A list is the budget saver. It is so easy to get a small thing here and there. Before you know it you have spent your gas money too (which thankfully is a lot less right now, $1.95 per gallon presently). Since we come at night we see the aftermath of a day of shoppers. The parking lot is littered with shopping carts. Wal-Mart provides convenient cart return racks evenly spaced throughout the parking lot. It is amazing how many people do not take advantage of these racks to put there cart back when they are done loading all there stuff. Furthermore, it is amazing that people are so lazy that they just leave the cart wherever they parked. You do have the half attempts by some people. They get the cart to the rack, but do not push it into a slot. They probably reassure themselves that they are not lazy because at least the cart is touching the rack even though it is on the opposite side of the opening. Unfortunately, Americans have gotten lazy even in the petty. Push your cart to the rack. I am sure you need the extra walking anyways.
If a man is lazy, the rafters sag; if his hands are idle, the house leaks. -Ecclesiastes 10:18
We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised. -Hebrews 6:12
