die evil walmart bin...die! 
29th-Jan-2006 12:07 pm
I'm hereby forbidding myself from entering Walmart ever again. Of course, that'll never actually happen, but it sounded all nifty and official, didn't it?

It's just I can't walk by those stupid DVD bargain bins without picking something up. Seriously - it's a problem. It all started about two weeks ago (gotta love how I'm making this seem like a dramatic story). Anyway, I picked up two of them that time. Then about a week later I got another one. And today I went there - at 7 a.m. no less, which is pretty freaking kooky in itself - and bought six more of them. Which all brings me to a grand total of 9 DVDS that stupid ass bin has forced me to buy. Oh, yes - it forced me. I'm convinced it sends out subliminal messages telepathically. Okay, stop looking at me like I'm insane.

I think it wouldn't be so bad if I didn't keep picking up such lame movies. I mean, they're ones I like, but my collection is becoming quite laughable. I mean, Monkey Trouble, Grease 2, and The Adventures of Pinnochio are not going to impress anyone. At least I convinced myself to put down that copy of Longshot...

I know how you feel. I bought eight the other day myself. You're not alone. They need to stop grabbing us by the shirttails already. Though, I did get the first two episodes of Buffy for 5.50, so you can't totally hate 'em.

That's a pretty sweet deal on the Buffy eps. Sometimes they have some really surprising stuff in there. I got the whole first season of the Jeff Foxworthy Show in there today for only 5.50. I couldn't believe it, lol. And now they have the new and improved 4.88 bin! As if they first one wasn't addictive enough. Bastards.

I got Sliding Doors and something else (can't remember what off the top if my head) for 4.88. Plus, dude, they have a JTT movie, something with Egypt, in one of those two bins.

WHAT?! They have Walking Across Egypt?! Are you kidding me? Okay, excuse me while I have my teeny spazz moment. Darn it, now I have to go back again. Are you sure it was at Walmart? Because I don't remember seeing that at all and don't want to dig through that awful thing again for no reason. It's eeevvvillll.

Yes, that's it! Walking Across Egypt. I almost bought it, actually. I put it back since I didn't know anything about it. It was in the 4.88 or 5.50 bin, can't remember which. It might not have been at yours, but it was mine.

You should go back and get it one of these days. It was a pretty cute movie. And for that price, you can't go too far wrong. I'm pretty sure mine doesn't have it, either that or it's all the way at the bottom of the bin. And trying to get down there is exhausting. Not that I've ever done that before....

I could after I get paid. And our Walmarts is so nice that we have displays now. Cardboard ones that make my life easier. Yours doesn't like you apparently.

You get displays? Oy, that's not fair. Mine just has the bins. And the one is just overflowing so anytime you move something, one of the damn movies falls on the floor and makes a horribly embarrassing echo sound.

Hahhhaha. We're cooler than you are. We had the bins for a long time and they decided to give us displays recently. I love 'em too. *gloats*

Hey, no bragging! *pouts* I think they put them in bins just as a sick joke. They sit back and laugh as everyone tries to make it to the bottom of the bin, and the DVDs just keep falling over on top of what they just uncovered. I bet they have a security camera right over the bin, and they make a montage of the best moments and play it during company meetings. I really do. Sick bastards.

A "When Shoppers Go Wild" tape that's sent out all acrossthe Wal-Mart's across the country. Just think, you might be famous after all!
