The Walmart Game

Tomorrow is grocery store day for my husband and I. We have a new game we play when we go buy groceries at Walmart to make the chore more enjoyable. We've assigned a point system to all the strange people we see at Walmart and we try to improve our score each time we go.

For example:
  • an obese person using a scooter-5 points
  • someone wearing pajamas-5 points
  • a kids with no shoes-10 points
  • a used diaper in the parking lot -10 points
  • a mom with multiple rowdy children talking obliviously on her cell phone-10 points
  • a person speaking through a voice box-10 points
  • someone dressed completely in camouflage-10 points
  • someone giving away puppies or kittens-10 points
  • child over five drinking from a baby bottle-10 points
  • kid riding a bike-5 points
  • woman with rollers in her hair-5 points
  • someone with BO-20 points

We need a few more suggestions, so if you've seen something strange at Walmart, let's hear it!

I once went to walmart and people started getting into a shouting match over proposition two. that was entertaining. i'd give that 20 points (people arguing).

- 5 points for competing Nascar jersey's in the same family.

(i found your blog through 'no longer a rural first year teacher')

5 points if you see teenagers or young adults (or anyone other than children) playing in the toy section

5 points if you see someone wearing around Wal-Mart merchandise before they have purchased it.

There should be different categories for couples yelling at each other (lower) and strangers yelling at each other (higher)

Thanks to all the suggestions, my husband and I had our best Walmart game ever. I did get a few more ideas from actual people we saw yesterday.

1. A plus size woman without a bra. (10 points) Well, really no woman should go to Walmart without a bra, but ladies if you are larger than an A cup, please WEAR a bra!

2. Anyone whose gender cannot be determined. (10 points) (I am not slamming anyone's sexuality here. . .please do not get offended)

3. A man with a ponytail holding hands with a woman who had a crew cut.
