Super Stench.

So after a LONG day of work I decided to get my butt in gear and do a little Christmas shopping. I found myself stumbling into good old Super WalMart (hey I'm a college student, I can't afford the high-end stuff).

Anyway, As soon as the automatic doors did there thing, I was greeted by a nice blast of warm air... and a horrible smell. Ugh. I don’t know how to describe it, but it wasn't good.

So I thought to my self, "Ugh that lady just FARTED and I am RIGHT behind her. How rude." As I scrambled to pass her I started to notice the smell was not going away. I started heading to the other side of the store because the smell was making me woozy.

I did some quick shopping and asked the cashier, "Does you management know about THAT smell?!" She just replied that "Oh yeah... that, they are working on it."

So as I'm walking out of the store I decided that the smell could be natural gas. Or some kind of gas... (It wasn't from no rear-end though). I know they put an odor in with natural gas so that it can be detected.... I just don't know what it smells like. So I decided to call the fire department and report it. After all, it was bad enough to give me a splitting headache.

So I did a little searching. And I do think I was right.... I do think it was natural gas because rotten eggs and sulfur where two things that came to mind while I was shopping.... I did call the fire department back to see if it was anything, they said they went and checked it out and didn't find anything. Hmmmm...

    Yeah, sitting on the air conditioner eating beans...

    Two little tools let off a stink bomb in our mini-mart the other day - it was foul. May have been that?

  6. Scary. Hey I'm a Walmart shopper at least twice a week - I believe in low prices. No I'm not getting paid for this. In my next career, I want to be a WM greeter. Really. Just sit smile and hand out stickers.
