We didn't, but maybe we should have.

while in Wal-Mart looking for my hair product they have cruelly discontinued:

Elderly Lady to her friend, both of whom are also looking for something, apparently unsuccessfully: "I just hate it when they don't have what I usually get!"

Me: (because, yes, I enter into conversations with total strangers in Wal-Mart) "I hate it, too!"

Elderly Lady: "Honey, let's just scream about it! Maybe they'll hear us and give us what we want!" ::pointing to her friend:: "She and I will scream if you do, okay?"

awesome. you totally should have just so you could say that you screamed in walmart with two elderly ladies who you didn't know from adam...or eve, as the case may be.

Oh, how very glad I am you (or they)resisted the urge...tho I admit I have had the desire to yell for help more than once in walmart and Lowe's. I've never given in either so let's keep the tradition going--to keep quiet. towgyb

I have such a great picture in my head from this :)
and that totally sounds like something my grandmother would have said to you had she been the elderly lady you met

ha! I think I would have done it if it had been me. I somehow can't resist an elderly lady. :D
