Wal-Mart Rage

How are there not more cases of Wal-Mart related homicides? I mean, people blame road rage for the stupid things they do in their cars. And people assume that because a couple of asshats like Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold1 listened to Marilyn Manson and played Doom, those must be responsible for their idiotic acts. But somehow, Wal-Mart never manages to get any of the blame pinned on it.

I mean, think about it. How pissed off would you be if the following happened to you on the 400?

Some old lady cuts you off without bothering to check her blind spots. As you somehow manage to veer out of the way, you get caught behind a person going far, far slower than the flow of traffic; you would just pass her, but she's managed to get herself right in the middle of a pack of people going fast enough to pass her, but not fast enough to actually form any sort of gap around her. Once you finally do get away, you get behind the guy who seems to be signalling a turn somewhere based on his low rate of speed and the fact that he slows considerably at every aisle. Road rage anyone? Oh no, I say "Wal-Mart Rage".

PS: I hate Wal-Mart and everything it stands for, and I do actually get very tense and irritated when I go in, but really, they are so God-damned cheap, and they really do have everything under the God-damned sun; what choice do you have?
