So I ran over to the Wal-Mart off of Crenshaw, which is about seven miles from BNFOS HQ here in Los Angeles, to pick up the DVD Box set of Battlestar Galactica - Season 4.0. It's been a while since I've set foot in a Wal-Mart. Now I remember why.
OMG, but the APATHY of those Wal-Mart employees was a near physical thing. You could see it in their eyes and in their sluggish movements. If a Kirlian photograph were taken there would be NO aura. Nothing but life-sucking, soul-killing anti-energy.
And this is in people LUCKY enough to have a job in this bad economy. Maybe Wal-Mart can adapt Japan's "Asimo" robot to work the checkout lines. It would stay cheery all day and not worry about taking its break, which seems to be a major thing 90% of the time I hit a retail outlet -- someone is always LATE for taking their break. WUWT?
Just keep Asimo away from stairs and you'd have a happy "employee," and happy customers too. What a concept.
