    Anyone else hate them? It takes forever to find a space! The phenomenon that is the parking lot mirage is at its worse in Wal-Mart parking lots, due to the cruddy little "return cart here" deals taking up an entire space!

    When they make another Nightmare on Elm Street, they should have some kid trapped in an endless Wal-Mart parking lot. Now that's torture!

    Should also make note of the randomly scattered Carts everywhere...

    People are too lazy to care even those parked next to the cart return spot...

    Take the ones in the far back. Sure, it'll be a pain to walk there to Wal-Mart, but at least you're not spending the entire time looking for one closer to the store.

    I park on the side, always a spot and it's just as close. Never enter through the main lot entrance, enter from the side. Just totaly stay away from the central lot and you'll be fine.

    Only bad thing about going late at night is they usually have the entrance doors that's in front of the toy section closed. Have to go in at opposite end and walk across the whole store too them.

    It's drive through that pisses me off

    Walmart is not worth putting energy into hating. And hey, they bring us toys.

    It's not Walmart that bugs me, it's navigating through all the Walmart people I hate. They're like zombies, who like blocking aisles with their carts. There's no left lane /right lane there either, everyone charges down the middle. :lol 

    A few people told me they treat they're employees like crap, and have a cutthroat system when it comes to putting out things for that Great Value brand.

    Would love to know the whole deal

    I dislike some of the wierd parking lot designs(some of which are finder bender magnets), but parking never has really bothered me much.

    Though people that drive the wrong way down a parking aisle bug me more than anything else.

    The Wal-Mart I normally frequent has a HUGE parking lot, and I can usually get a decent parking spot close to the store, no matter what time of day I go.

    I like climbing on the roof, and sneaking in through the airducts. I steal my transformers ninja style.

    used to work there.
    the Shamu-people on those poor underpowered electric carts makes me think that Terminators (T-800) were justified in killing people in the movies.

    The management gets psychotic/sociopathic. At the holidays, you can expect to be praised and fired within the last 20 minutes of a shift. "Wow, all by yourself, shorthanded you worked Frozen? GREAT JOB! oh, hang on, buddy, says here you clocked out 20 minutes late...do it again and we'll have to write you up or worse." no joking.

    as for parking, I think if you are bipedal, and able to get around, there is not bad parking spot. and with a shopping cart carrying your load for you, you aren't encumbered, so what's the beef?
    There's more evil inside the store than in empty parking spots.

    Did you take lessons from Animated Prowl? If so, tell him that I am looking into taking ninja classes.

    This. I went to walmart today and scored a U Ratchet and IG 86 assasin droid, and there was a crapton of mobs standing infront of each isle. I also can't stand it when people park their carts sideways in an isle, completely blocking off the other side, unless you walk around. Assholes.

    The parking lot really isn't a big deal. Besides, walking is good exercise, I guess.

    I usually park at the mini side parking lot that seems to be to the left of most Wal-Marts. There's usually a few good spaces there.
