The way you folks treat people has always been questionable and now it borders disgusting.
I just say the news report on you suing a disabled woman to recoup medical bills?????? I am not stupid I know money does not grow on trees and that you cannot just give and give money especially with health care costs these days, but to sue this poor woman and her family after all the tragedy they have gone through, I have no idea how you people can live with yourselves.
For years I have complained about your treatment of your employees and the back handed business practices you perform and try to get away with all the time, yet I didnít have the conviction to stand up for what I believed in because I wanted to save a few dollars here and there by shopping at your store.
Well not anymore, this if the final straw. You have lost a customer FOR LIFE. I will no longer be getting my prescriptions at your Houlton Maine store, I will now get them at Rite-Aide. Even though itís going to cost me more money I will no longer shop at your store for ANYTHING, I will pay more elsewhere or, I will order it off line but I will NEVER give you another penny of my money as long as I live, and if I have my way about it I will convince as many people as I can to shop elsewhere as well.
Saving a few dollars is not worth contributing to your morally bankrupt evil empire, Wal-mart is just another example of the decline of society, only out for themselves and not interested in helping their fellow man unless there is a buck in it for them. I understand you are a business and have to make money, however I find your actions disgusting. You folks could have done ANYTHING else aside from sue this poor woman and try and take away what little money they have, itís not like she slipped in your store and sued you and is having a party with the settlement money, you are trying to take away the money they need to LIVE ON!! In my book Walmart is now no better than the Oil Companyís who are bleeding people dry with their greed.
You wonít care about losing one customer but over time your actions will come back to you, I feel sorry for anyone that has to work for you folks

I have a love hate relationship with Wal-mart. I hate how it treats it's own employees among other things, yet it has the best prices around. I just saw this news article
This is the video, the link to a text version of the story is at the bottom of the page
I am just disgusted with Wal-mart at this point, yes I know money does not grow on tree's and things have to be paid for, however i just think they could handle things in a different manner.
I am going to do my best to boycott Walmart, from now on all my prescriptions will be sent to Rite-Aide or another local pharmacy and even though its a pain in the neck when I need something I will pay a little more elsewhere or order off line but I will NOT be giving my money to Walmart
If you feel strongly about this I urge you to do the same and take a stand.

My Declaration of Self-Esteem
by Virginia Satir
I AM ME
In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me
Everything that comes out of me is authentically me
Because I alone chose it - I own everything about me
My body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions,
Whether they be to others or to myself - I own my fanatasies,
My dreams, my hopes, my fears - I own all my triumphs and
Successes, all my failures and mistakes Because I own all of
Me, I can become intimately acquainted with me - by so doing
I can love me and be friendly with me in all my parts - I know
There are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other
Aspects that I do not know - but as long as I am
Friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously
And hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles
And for ways to find out more about me - However I
Look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever
I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically
Me - If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought
And felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is
Unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that
Which I discarded - I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do
I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be
Productive to make sense and order out of the world of
People and things outside of me - I own me, and
therefore I can engineer me - I am me and
I AM OKAY

It's weird, but few of us remember this seemingly unforgettable food fact: You can lose 10 pounds a year by cutting out 100 calories a day. Maybe it's just too easy?!?
...Or maybe we just really don't know what 100 calories looks like (unless it's in one of those snack packs). Enter this tip list from The Portion Teller Plan, a raved-about guide to "eating, cheating, and losing weight permanently" that's finally available in paperback. Encourages nutritionist/author Lisa R. Young, PhD, RD: "Instead of meticulously consulting calorie charts or obsessively checking the USDA Nutrient Database, try these simple, painless, calorie-cutting moves" -- each one eliminates about 100 calories.
The punchline: Do one a day, every day, and you'll drop those 10 pounds without doing a single other thing. Or go wild and do two a day! You'll drop 10 pounds in just six months without a minute of dieting. Beauteous.
NO-BRAINER WAYS TO CUT OUT ABOUT
100 CALORIES A DAY
* Eat only half of a candy bar or an energy bar (both pack a lot of calories).
* Use 1 tablespoon of salad dressing instead of 2 (toss the salad really well and you won't even notice the difference).
* Choose small 1-ounce pitas instead of the larger 2-ounce size.
* Spread 1 tablespoon of peanut butter instead of 2 on bread or crackers.
* Leave the last few bites of pasta on your plate.
* Use 1 pat of butter instead of 3 on a baked potato.
* Order a tall cappuccino instead of a grande next time you visit Starbucks.
* Scramble 1 egg for yourself, not 2.
* Make all your sandwiches open-faced -- omit the top slice of bread.
* Skip the last 3 bites of any main course.
* Snack on 1 fist-sized bunch of grapes, not 2.
* Grab 5 Hershey's dark chocolate Kisses instead of 10.
* Choose a white wine spritzer over a 5-ounce glass of wine.
* Have a 6-inch Roast Beef sandwich at Subway instead of a 6-inch Classic Steak & Cheese.
* Order a small cup at Dairy Queen instead of a small cone.

Well no matter how many times I try that mantra it does NOT work *chuckles*
I think we would have to classify today as a draw, I think the forces of darkness edged me out a bit, they put in some pretty heavy hitters against me today. First of all was the strawberry and cream cheese danish, now this was
deceptively evil because it ambushed me in a "health food store" Its actually a bakery but it's also a health food store, so I gave into that.
Then while doing my monthly shopping at Walmart the candy bar display ambushed me, (I am going to leave out the fact I purposely moved over 2 cashiers in order to be in line with the candy display I wanted)
So a new "reeses " candy bar( that shall remain nameless) later I ended up at the Chinese buffet with my mom and step father, I probably went a little over the line, not too awful much really then again when eating Chinese food it doesn't take much to hop over the line, I could lie and say I was eating steamed veggies and rice but that would be a complete load of BS
So I ate that and went home, and then Ill be darned if not a few hours went by and another mystery "reeses" candy bar (large size) jumped out of a bag and took me by total surprise.
So needless to say allot of questionable food choices attacked me (choices I made) today and I was not able to fight them off.
Well the mistakes I made today (food choices aside) I went out without eating properly. I had a slim fast for breakfast and that was about it until the name less candy bar and it was all down hill from there.
I do find on days that I snack consistently between meals (yes intentionally)
I tend to do better, if you keep the body furnace burning properly, I find that I am less "ravenous"
So even though I might have lost the battle today, I WILL win the war
