Fuck You Wal*Mart!
Currently our local WalMart is expanding to become (everyone gasp) a Super WalMart. This current prospect of theirs would not be so appalling, if they weren’t trying to put the parking lot in my backyard!
The house that I live in (with my dad) is the one that I have lived in my whole life. My dad built the whole house by himself. The house holds incredible sentimental value to both of us. Then, about eight years ago, those bastards decided that 200 yards from the back of our house would be a great place to open a new monument to consumerism. BANG property value goes down $20,000. The lights from the store are enough to light up the whole house when the power is out (this really happened. Who needs a flashlight when you have Wal*Mart!). The light is especially bad in the winter when there are no leaves on the trees. Their parking-lot cleaners, also, decided that it would be really convenient to clean the parking-lot at three or four in the morning.
Now they have decided to expand! But of course, just to the edge of our property line, so they don’t have to pay us any money. There parking lot will now end 5 yards from the edge of our creek, and then follow along the creek on through the neighborhood. Now, the lights will be brighter, the noise will be louder, and the property is likely to go down another $20,000 or so.
FUCKING ASSHOLES :mad:
