You Are Where You Shop: Walmart Shoppers Gone Wild

ADVERTISEMENT

The mega retail chain has just about anything one could need, including food, jewelry, clothing, electrical appliances and other household items. Offering such a wide selection of items, it is no surprise that Walmart has become the sort of place that attracts all sorts of people. Here they are in their best (and worst) moments.

Quinn Of Walmart

Did Halloween come early this year or did the fully grown man in the picture below decide to let his quirky side show in the store of all places?

Tail As Old As Time

You know those days you just get up in the morning, head towards the nearest grocery store and think to yourself, “Gosh, I wish I was wearing a tail right now?” Neither do we, but apparently, this guy has had enough of these moments, so this time, he decided to finally go through with his deepest desire. Here is a sight you definitely do not see everyday – a man wearing a plain T-shirt, jeans, sneakers, and a tail.

WALMART

Gender-fluid Grandpa

In Walmart, one can be whoever they want to be. While one may wear their superhero costume while marching to get a new toaster, the other can feel free to walk around half clothed with every intention to shop for a pair of sneakers. The man in the picture below decided that this time around, he is interested in being a woman while gathering his usual groceries. Our guess is that being an old grandfather simply wasn’t cutting it for him anymore.

WALMART

Love Me Some Lizard

It is not that uncommon to see people trying to sneak their beloved pets into places they usually are not allowed to be in, but this woman redefines inappropriate, wearing her live, full-size, orange lizard on the back of her head as if it were some accessory she casually pinned to her hair. Although its color blends well with the Puffs tissues in the background, we highly doubt this lizard desperately clinging onto its owner is what people would expect to find in the food aisle.

WALMART

Driving Miss Cart

Why go about your everyday shopping in a dull way when you can simply hop on a handicapped cart and form a train with your friends? The people pictured in yet another Walmart store had this exact thought cross their minds, so they decided to go with the flow. The carts are meant for people who are unable to walk around while shopping, so we would not suggest pulling this stunt on a regular basis, as it is inconsiderate of those who actually need these services.

WALMART

Pushy Child

Before jumping to conclusions, the mother in this picture – yes, the same one sitting comfortably in the cart while her young son is seen pushing her around – might be teaching her offspring a lesson. The idea behind this act could be to show her son what being a pushover is like and why it is important to have a backbone. On the other hand, it could also just be a mother being too lazy to push around her two kids, so she made this into a game.

WALMART

Faux Fashion

Some people only care about labels and brands and take a lot of pride wearing top quality merchandise. The girl in the picture wanted to fit in but could not afford the brand most of her friends wore, so she decided to write the well-known brand’s name on a piece of paper and stick it on the back of her boots. Sadly, the overall result was not as promising as she would have hoped, but we give her an A for effort.

WALMART

Monkey Business

It is impossible not to see how adorable this monkey is, cuddling inside a blanket and in the arms of his adoptive mother. While many might not see eye to eye with the woman who voluntarily decided to bring such an exotic creature to her local Walmart store, she clearly treats this miniature mammal as if it was her real flesh and blood, a newborn in need of constant care and affection. This is probably the reason she takes it everywhere she goes.

WALMART

Double Standards

The back of this guy’s T-shirt might read “smooth father, straight shooter,” but the undergarments he is wearing point out quite the contrary. Maybe this was a part of a dare, but after walking around aimlessly in Walmart then coming to this gas station to pump gas in his car, the man was practically begging for anyone to snap a picture of his behind, which is clearly out in display for all to see. Hey, whatever floats his boat…

WALMART

Hot In Here

It does not take a fortune teller to guess what this girl is shopping for – and if aloe vera is not it, it better be sunscreen lotion for future usage, as it is evidently too late to apply now. Considering the fact she was overly exposed to the sun without proper protection, it seems this gal should have taken notes from her friend standing by her side, whose skin was left untouched. Maybe now she will learn how to take a better example of others.

WALMART

Creative And Classy

Yet another example of someone who wanted to fit in, but had a more creative idea as to how to execute the latest fashion trend. Instead of showing off his underwear like many of the guys from his school, the boy in the picture took a particularly long sleeveless shirt and tucked it into his gym shorts. That way, his pants could hang low, but he would still not expose the boxers he was wearing underneath and thus remains dignified.

WALMART

It’s A Miracle!

This woman was using the handicapped cart accessible to those in need of special means to get their shopping done in the easiest and most comfortable way. However, not all people who use this are actually limited physically, but would rather simply enjoy the ride on the cart. That way, they could remain sitting throughout their entire cruise in the big Walmart store, without even having to get up once and break a sweat. This is not considerate behavior, and this woman was caught in the act.

WALMART

Make (Hair) Do

This man is the perfect example of someone who knows how to make the best out of every situation. Instead of sitting at home and becoming depressed of what little hair he has left on his head (or does not have) he brushed off the shame and celebrated the fact the glass was half full. Many others might claim it would have been better if the man shaved everything off, but if this little patch of hair makes him happy, who are we to judge?

WALMART

Sneak(er) Attack

Keep your laces tied tight, because these shoes are going to rock you to the core. Are they sneakers? Are they sandals? No one really knows, but since you have got two in one, this is a win for the comfort team. As for aesthetics and overall look, this is not exactly something you would likely see models wearing while walking down the runway at New York Fashion Week. At the same time, this wouldn’t be the first time fashion statements shock those who aren’t in the industry.

WALMART

Barking Mad

Dog lovers reunite! At the risk of receiving raging comments about how this is a completely normal thing to do, we are going to go ahead and state that while these four-legged creatures are man’s best friend, it is still rather surprising running into a bunch of them yapping away attempting to leap out of the cart they were placed in. As if it was not clear enough that this woman perceives her pets to be her children, note how she put one of them in the child seat.

WALMART

Meat Me There

We all need an occasional break from our hectic lives. That break can take many forms – while some prefer to go on a vacation to an exotic location far away, others with lesser means or different priorities can choose to take a day off from work – or even pamper yourself with a midday nap. The person in this photo found herself browsing through the refrigerated meat section when inspiration struck her – and for some unknown reason, she decided to cover herself with packaged meat and nap there and then.

walmart

Real Life Thriller

No, the King of Pop has not risen from the dead. To be quite frank, even if he did, we seriously doubt Walmart would be the first, second or third place he would go once being resurrected. The resemblance to the great Michael Jackson is uncanny, but one cannot help but wonder why he is wearing that highly suspicious black scarf over his mouth. As for the girl by his side, she does not seem to be that surprised to have the Thriller star by her side in Walmart.

WALMART

Holy Hair

Running a close second for Guinness Book of Record’s longest and thickest dreadlock, the man in the picture was not about to let something as silly as social norms dictate how to treat or handle his hair. Forming a single dreadlock as impressive as this would not only take a lot of time but actually demands much care. In general, people associate dreads with being unkempt, but as a matter of fact, the contrary is true. As for hygiene? That’s a whole other matter.

WALMART

Turtle Time

Some might bring scooters into Walmart to speed up the shopping process or simply lean against their cart to wheel themselves over to the next aisle. This gal was not planning on browsing around in any rush. If she did, she probably should have brought a different pet along on this shopping spree and not her turtle. If we are really being blunt, a turtle would probably never be the appropriate pet to bring anywhere, which is probably why it seems to be heading in the other direction.

WALMART

Motivation Is Key

Women and men alike often set themselves standards they find hard to live up to. One goal many set has to do with reaching a target weight, which is often defined by a certain piece of clothing that they used to easily fit into. Attempting to squeeze into your old skinny jeans is more than a physical struggle, it is an emotional one that has much to do with work on the mind as well as the body. The woman below was not about to admit defeat.

WALMART

Crack Me Up

Among the many products it has to offer, Walmart also offers a wide selection of apparel. As any other store who offers clothing items does, the huge retail chain places changing rooms within its four walls, in order to enable people to try on the clothes they are interested in before making the purchase. Those stalls are meant to give people the privacy they need when changing clothes, but clearly, this woman decided it would be better to save a few minutes by changing in front of all.

WALMART

Don’t Fret, I Have A Ferret

Pets are a common, reoccurring phenomenon in the weird world of Walmart. In the same category of turtles, dogs, cats, and parrots, yet another animal that is being brought into these stores are ferrets. You might find it surprising to hear that the list goes on – but that is the truth about Walmart. Entering those glass doors guarantees an adventure like no other, much like walking into the cinema to watch a movie without getting a glimpse of the trailer before.

WALMART

A Bug’s Life

Among the many creatures that can be found lurking around different aisles, centipedes would probably not be one’s initial guess when thinking of what would be uncovered next. Well, surprise surprise, this woman in the picture below begs to differ. As far as she is concerned, the most natural habitat for the stuffed version of the bug is around her right leg’s ankle. A quick glimpse at her shirt would suggest she has a fondness for many animals, not only those who crawl.

WALMART

Mission Accomplished

We would hate to be the person that ran into the girl in this picture since she is obviously still holding a grudge – and even went as far as to get a custom-made, fluorescent vest with the following text printed in huge letters: “Can you see me now a**hole” to emphasize her point. That highlighter shade of yellow is a tough one to overlook, however, so we will give her that. But why on Earth would she wear it to Walmart?

WALMART

Return Of The Mask

Grooming oneself is an important part of life when it comes to people who like to make sure they are at the top of their game. This woman is clearly highly invested in looking her best for whatever she had planned that evening, as she was willing to leave her house with a mask still on her face. Of course, there is that slight possibility that she forgot to remove the mask before leaving to buy some much-needed apples.

WALMART

Like Father Like Daughter

The phrase like father like daughter usually means that the apple does not fall far from the tree. This, of course, goes to say that people who are related are usually alike. However, the man in the photo below probably misread into the common saying, as he is clearly wearing leggings that are originally owned by his daughter. At least, that is what we would like to believe. At least he was considerate enough to cover those skinny legs up instead of wearing those tiny jeans shorts!

WALMART

Too Cool, Mom

Wearing cropped jeans is a newly found hobby of this mother – or at the very least, that is the only way we can explain the fact she is wearing a jeans top, shorts, and what appears to be boot cover-ups. Her daughter, on the other hand, is wearing jeans shorts much like her mother, but appears not to be under the same influence. Let’s just hope this daughter has a more progressive sense of style than the woman who gave birth to her.

WALMART

Captain Ameri-Mart

Superheroes need thrifty discounts too! Just take a look at this guy who was dressed up as Captain America the minute he realized he just had to go grocery shopping. If you zoom in on his expression, you will notice he was not too happy with the cashier either. Perhaps because he thought he deserved special treatment or lower prices on account of being responsible for the safety of the entire nation? They say crime doesn’t pay, but it seems that neither does being a hero.

walmart

Time To Shine

Just another day at Walmart – the store where you can be whoever you want to be. That is, unless what you want to be is a nudist… In that case, you are better off heading towards a nudist beach, since these security guards are waiting for opportunities such as the one presented in the photo below to show how skilled they are at using their tasers and applying handcuffs. Yet another example of why crime does not pay… But it is funny, so we’ll give him that.

walmart

Fancy Shmancy

Many people believe that when it comes to weddings, people should stick to basics and just enjoy their special day in whatever way they see fit, and not go through the whole overrated hurrah of an expensive party with catered meals and a 500$ gown. This couple is quite obviously not about to splurge on one day, as important and significant as it may be, so they decided to celebrate in the best way they know how – announce their souls reuniting in the place where magic happens – what else? Walmart!

walmart

No Words

It’s almost as though there should be certain tests that people have to take if they want to procreate. Bringing children into the world is not a right, it’s a privilege, one that should be appreciated every day. Looking after your child means more than occasionally feeding and showering them, it means constantly putting them in front of you and altering your priorities completely, something this mother is having a hard time accepting since she evidently doesn’t care that her daughter could suffocate with that bag around over her head.

walmart

Mister Easter

Easter either came extremely early this year, or this guy simply felt it was essential to stress the necessity of an Easter-related Santa Claus before it was too late. For that reason precisely, he dressed up and wore ornaments and covered his body with chocolate eggs and bunnies. “Why tell them when you can simply show them?” was the thought that most likely crossed his mind the minute he put this outfit on and walked over towards the nearest Walmart.

walmart

Too Much Information

T-shirts carrying messages is a recurring phenomenon, especially when people decided to bring their clothing items to a whole other level, like the guy in the picture below. Instead of having a shirt read out the usual TV show reference quote or have a logo of a boutique store most people are unable to afford, why not disgust everyone around you with a statement reading you are unable to control your own gas? Let’s just hope people who did manage to read the message took a wide step back.

walmart

A Woman With A Cause

Going for Guinness Book of Records’ all-time record of longest nails, this woman has quite a fair way to go if she intends on having her name appear in the well-known book. If this is not her intention, we find it hard to imagine any other reason anyone would have for growing their nails to this extent, particularly because it seems more uncomfortable than anything else. But hey, this probably means she is financially supporting her manicurist, so at least there’s that.

walmart

Stranger Danger

In case you missed the fine print, the note attached to this baby’s chair reads “please do not touch the baby!” We have heard of cases of people bluntly placing their hands on the bellies of pregnant women without so much as asking in advance and thus intruding their personal space, but to go as far as to touch a baby without permission just seems insane. We hope this baby lets out a loud cry whenever strangers approach, maybe that’ll scare them off.

walmart

Show Stopper

Torn jeans are hot right now, and although many grandmothers might frown at the sight of paying an astounding amount for a piece of clothing that is not even sawn right, sometimes you just have to roll with the punches and do what feels right. This girl, however, is not only a fashion follower – she is a trendsetter since she took the concept of old, torn jeans that have the overused look locked down a bit too far and went for jeans that are more torn than anything else.

walmart

Eye Am Watching You

Tattoos are ones that are not for everyone. Especially those who have a hard time dealing with the fact that something is going to be inked on their body for the rest of their life. For that reason, a lot of individuals choose to get tattoos that are in a place they do not often see, like the back of their heads, back of their necks – or just plain backs. This guy wanted to get something done that he would not grow tired of – and he succeeded.

walmart

Game Time

All work and no play? Not for this couple, who make an effort to spend time together just like they used to when they just started dating. While it is important to keep that spark alive, it could be done elsewhere and not outside Walmart right before getting to that shopping list and buy common household items, like toilet paper. Not to mention, maybe their kid should have been in on the fun as well instead of simply sitting aside and watching his parents?

walmart

True Colors

As if his tie-dye T-shirt was not cutting it, this guy wanted nothing more than to head over to Walmart for some light shopping after being sprayed in the face, hands and getting spray on his clothes. Not to mention, it is not as if this was a normal color to be sprayed with – no, there is a reason this image is pure comic gold – he is painted gold! However, a short glimpse at his face will show he wasn’t too happy with the colorful result.

walmart

Fashion Forward

The rules of fashion do not apply for everyone – especially not those who wish to do their own thing and walk down a path that feels more right and comfortable. It is important to stay true to yourself, even if it means taking a standard polo shirt and wearing it the other way around, as the guy in the picture did so comfortably. We especially appreciate the way he made an effort to cut his shirt’s sleeves as well.

walmart

These Jorts Were Made For Wearing

Maybe this man was on his way to shoot an 80’s themed movie or a special edition workout video featuring jeans shorts, but the sweatband on his head suggests he is one to follow his own trend no matter what the occasion. Even making a casual stroll to his local Walmart store results in making an appearance such as this, since he is not one to back down from his beliefs – as quirky as they might seem to other people.

walmart

Come On Cameo

Maybe this was their brilliant idea – a way to not stand out from the crowd and keep it low key – and usually, wearing camouflage would absolutely guarantee such an effect. However, the matching camo pants and white tank tops are simply too much, as being coordinated in clothing is not a cute couple thing to do – it is disturbing and uncalled for. This also appears to be date night, where the two met up for a casual video game get together.

walmart

Newest Trend

Recently, people have been coming into Walmart and uploading pictures to social media with plungers stuck to their bodies. While it remains unknown if there is some kind of an inside joke we have been missing out on or if it is simply the latest shenanigan the internet is obsessed with, this is most likely a passing phase that people will forget about in a few weeks. Walmart does not complain, however, since it seems to bring in many customers regardless of their intention.

walmart

Legs For Days

You are what you wear might heavily apply in this case, since the boy in the picture probably would not have walked out the door to a public place like Walmart dressed like that unless this is how he felt most comfortable. We especially like the fact the woman who standing in front of him and paying, which we guess is his mother, seems to not be bothered by her son’s choice of clunky black heels, bright orange belly top, and floral skirt.

WALMART

Life’s A Struggle

When life gets hard and shopping for basic items for your home is a struggle, what else can a man do but lay down in the middle of a Walmart store and take a nap? This guy clearly needs to be nominated for Napper Of The Year, considering this is probably one of the most hectic and busiest places to fall asleep in. Obviously, the man feels right at home on this bench, which is what Walmart is all about.

walmart

Call Me Madame

We all know how frustrating it can be when you want to be respectful and address a person the way they desire, but for some people, it’s really hard to tell. This lady clearly felt the need to spell it out in explicit terms so that she didn’t suffer yet another person tapping her on the back and saying, “Do you need any help, sir?” It wasn’t worth her energy to keep lashing out, so now whenever she’s out shopping.

Pants On The Ground

This man wouldn’t be the first to decide that the aisle was a better place to try on clothing than the designated fitting rooms. After all, he thought it would just take a second, before realizing that maybe he’d get a better idea of this dress’s fit if he took off his pants. The minute he let his fly drop though, he was struck by another roadblock. His shoes were in the way and suddenly, he’d become yet another Walmart spectacle.

You See Me Rollin

When you just have a quick errand to run at your local Walmart, there’s no need to disrupt your beauty routine. This lady knew she’d be far from the most ostentatious customer at Walmart, and decided to head on over with the curlers still in her hair. We’re not sure exactly what kind of style she’s going for, since the ponytail in the back kinda throws things off. At the very least, her hair will frame her face quite nicely after it’s set.

By Cupid’s Bow

Look, some people like to spread Christmas cheer year round, and others just want to spread the love. This man was clearly in the Valentine’s Day spirit when he fly into his favorite Walmart branch equipped with a bow and several rubber tipped arrows, plus sparkly, white wings, heart shaped glasses, and even two little sparkly heart antennae perched on top of his head. We’re not sure if this man found any willing customers, but clearly it wasn’t going to stop him from trying.

I’m Blue Da Ba Dee

The woman in this photo just woke up feeling quite blue that morning, and in an effort to cheer herself up decided she would dress head to toe in her favorite color. It’s a good thing she has plenty of options stored up in her wardrobe, with multiple sets of blue leggings and blue t-shirts just waiting to be chosen. She capped the whole on ensemble off with a blue wig, before realizing that she needed a new blue toy for her cat to match.

Classing It Up

We’ve all been there, you’re hosting a big party and get all dressed up, only to realize you’ve forgotten something crucial. This man realized that he was imminently expecting people, but had forgotten to provide any iced tea. He had been going for some sort of Scottish wedding theme, but due to budget restrictions, had to compromise on the whole authentic kilt thing and settled for a regular plaid skirt. When he realized he couldn’t handle to cold on his bare legs, on went the leggings.

Checking Out

Shopping as the mother of a small child is never a simple task. Aside from having to get them ready and out the door without a tantrum, you never know if your shopping trip is going to accidentally collide with their nap time. This mom just needed an extra hand available to pay for her purchases, so she propped her young toddler on the conveyor belt, only for the hum of the machinery to lull him to sleep.

Cheaper By The Dozen

This family has literally gone wild, wearing fake heads of animals one would only find out in nature or a nearby zoo. Guessing from the figures in the picture, it is our guess the mom was either out sick or away, since those pictured look like a father and his kids. It makes sense the mischievous dad would wait for an opportunity like having his wife go away before pulling such a stunt. At least the kids look like they’re having fun.

WALMART

Customer Of The Century

For some people, Disneyland is the best place on Earth. For others, that place might be a romantic, far off getaway location. For this woman, Walmart is pretty much as magical as it gets. Having appeared on social media on numerous occasions for her questionable choice of clothing and always being found in the same Alabama branch of the retail store, it seems like she cannot get enough of the fame she gained almost instantly. Here’s to her 15 minutes of fame!
