People of Walmart: The really gross edition

Rate this post

There’s a website called, to which readers can send — and get published — candid photos they’ve taken of odd-looking shoppers in various Wal-Marts across the U.S.
Periodically I go on the website to cull pictures for my “People of Walmart” posts on FOTM (scroll down to bottom of this post for our collection). I do them as a way to chronicle how Americans have lost our sense of self-respect and propriety. Too many of us don’t make even a minimum effort at pulling ourselves together before we go out of our homes, but instead parade our slovenly appearances for the world to see.
I had not done a People of Walmart post for over half a year. Time for a new one!

Eyebleach Warning!!!

Here are FOTM’s other “People of Walmart” posts:

  1. Ouch!!! I have to use these eyes for work the rest of this day!!!
    (Oh well, I was warned.)

  2. These Wal-Mart posts are funny. But for all my times at Wal-Mart (in Florida and Georgia), I never recall ever seeing these grotesqueries. New York City doesn’t have any Wal-Marts—one of the things we got right!

    • I have been to Wal-Mart many times too and have never seen anything like this. I wonder if most of this happens late at night?

    • WalMart (a Supercenter, no less) on Skibo Road in Fayetteville, NC, is closed between Midnight and 6:00am because of riff-raff that hang out in the parking lot. Want to see dudes tailgating with a Glock stuff down the front of their pants? Go there at 8:00pm, it’s where the action is!

  3. Proud to say I have only been in one Walmart in my life. Vermont, of all places, in the mid 80’s. These images humor and frighten me. Happy New Year everybody. Stay focused !!

  4. These people are devoid of consciousness or self respect. Some people have filthy hygiene habits. And to the point, the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th images – I always wash my hands with soap and water when returning home after visiting public places.

  5. That human beings would go out in public and display themselves in this manner is beyond comprehension. Just this morning I was telling my nephew that way His Grandma went to a doctor’s visit (this would be in the early 1950’s) she would have on a good dress, a hat, and wearing gloves. I went on to tell him that previously in history people just did not parade themselves around like heathens (and this is giving heathens a bad name.) I have watched some sites where they show the way airline patrons show up in clothes that a field hand might wear–or little clothes at all. I went on to tell him that when Grandpa and his wife fly to Sweden, they were very clean and well dressed, and the stewardesses upgraded them to first class. I live in sorrow over the loss of the time when we were a more respectful people. Several of these people should be referred to the police for indecent exposure, or in the case of those who obviously have incontinence problems–they should be referred to “State family services” to find out why these people are out in public in this state.
    Excellent article.

  6. I don’t remember seeing anything like this at our Walmart either,or maybe I just don’t notice ’em. I have to focus on what I’m there for or I risk buying a bunch of foreign-made junk I don’t need that breaks when I try to use it anyway.
    Here’s a question-How many of us would be willing to pay TWICE as much for something if it’s built to work properly for 30 years,guaranteed? Personally,I’m so tired of buying something and having it either fail to work at all or having it break/fall apart within less than a year. If I had to put off buying something with a 30 year guarantee until I could afford it,I’d be okay with doing that. Would it be worthwhile for a Company to start selecting stuff we use (and throw away when they break or quit working) like a toaster,or a garden sprinkler,and manufacturing,IN AMERICA,those things done the RIGHT way. Granted-they’d be eliminating “Planned Obsolescence” from the marketing,but they’d ALSO be eventually selling at least one to every household in the US,or possibly other Countries too. We’d be actually SAVING money buying these lifetime products,by paying even three times as much as the junk version,in less than 5 years we’d have it paid for and would have its expected life to be at least 25 more years.

  7. 10 to 1 they are all on the government paycheck.

  8. Oh good gawd! I think I’m going to be ill. 🙁

  9. Glad I wasn’t eating! Eeeeeek!

  10. Photos like these, and there are millions of them as well as people who haven’t appeared before the camera yet, sometimes make me question the idea that Jesus loves everyone. The body usually reflects what it in the soul and in these cases, it’ just not that redeeming.

  11. Eye bleach is right! I still can’t get over the fact that people from Walmart dress in pajamas. Amazing!
