Things to do at Walmart when you're bored

    Put a Dora the Explorer doll on the ground and wait for someone to come by and pick it up then jump out and yell, swiper no swiping swiper no swiping swiper no swiping.

    Put a sticker on a condom box that says please try here for free.

    Turn around to the person behind you and yell really loud, "Will you please stop following me?"

    Place a walkie talkie in one of the racks and wait for an unsuspecting person to come along and pick up an item. In a cool whisper through the walkie talkie say, "That is the wrong size."

    Go to the subway in the walmart get a sub and a refillable drink. Get a cart head over to the furniture department and grab a gaming chair. Take it over to the electronics section and sit down in front of your fave game station and start playing. Eventually an employee will walk up to you and tell you that you can't do that. When they do, hand them your cup and ask for a refill. The looks you will get ARE worth it!! :D

    Have fun at your local walmart driving them a little nuts and don't forget to thank them for their roll back prices.

    There's a joke over in the Joke Thread...dunno if it was Walmart or any store. Something about some old retired buck, as I recall, involved ketchup (and stuff)...the "wet spot" sign, so forth so on. As you pass people you get their attention and point back to where you've been, point to where they're headed, and warn them, "Watch out for the wet spot!"

    As the cashier runs your purchase over the scanner, look mesmerized and say, "Wow, magic!"
    Ask other customers if they have any Grey Poupon.
    Attempt to fit others into very large gym bags.
    Challenge other customers to duels with tubes of gift-wrap.
    Contaminate the entire auto department by sampling all the spray air fresheners.
    Dart around suspiciously while humming the theme from Mission Impossible.
    Drag a lounge chair over to the magazines and relax.
    Go to the food court, buy a drink, and ask if they can put a little umbrella in it.
    Drape a blanket around your shoulders and run around saying, "I'm Batman. Come Robin, to the Batcave."
    Follow people through the aisles, staying about 5 feet behind them. Do this until they leave the store.
    Get 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people's carts when they aren't looking.
    Go into a fitting room, shut the door and wait a while and then yell loudly "There's no toilet paper in here!"
    Go to the Service Desk and ask to put a bag of M&M's on lay away.
    Hide in a clothing rack and when people browse through, say "PICK ME! PICK ME!"
    Hold indoor shopping cart races.
    In the auto department, practice your "Madonna look" using different size funnels.
    Leave Cheerios in lawn and garden, pillows in the pet section, etc.
    Look right into the security camera, use it as a mirror and pick your nose.
    Make a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the restrooms.
    Make up nonsense products and ask employees if there are any in stock. (i.e.: Shnerples)
    Move "Caution: Wet Floor" signs to carpeted areas.
    Pay off layaways 50 cents at a time.
    Play soccer with a group of friends, using the entire store as your playing field.
    Play with the automatic doors.
    Play with the calculators so that they all spell "hello" upside down.
    Randomly throw things over into neighboring aisles.
    "Re-alphabetize" the CD's.
    Re-dress the mannequins as you see fit.
    Relax in the patio furniture until you get kicked out.
    Ride a display bicycle through the store; claim you are taking it for a test drive.
    Ride those little electronic cars at the front of the store.
    Say things like, "Would you be so kind as to direct me to your Twinkies."
    Set all the alarm clocks to go off at ten-minute intervals throughout the day.
    Set up a "Valet Parking" sign in front of the store.
    Set up a tent in the camping department and tell other shoppers you'll invite them in if they bring pillows from the bed department.
    Start playing Calvinball; see how many people you can get to join.
    Take bets on the battle from above.
    Take off your shoes and tell them you want to return it and when they say you didn't buy it there say, "Hm... I thought the customer was always right!"
    Take shopping carts for the express purpose of filling them and stranding them at strategic locations.
    Take up an entire aisle in toys by setting up a full-scale battle with G.I. Joe vs. X-men.
    Test the brushes and combs in cosmetics.
    Test the fishing rods and see what you can catch from other aisles.
    TP as much of the store as possible before they stop you.
    Try to hold up customers with the toy guns. See how much you can make.
    Tune all the radios to polka stations; then turn them off and turn the volume up to full blast.
    Walk up to an employee and tell him/her in an official tone, 'Code 3' in Housewares and see what happens.
    Walk up to complete strangers and say, "Hi. I haven't seen you in so long." etc. See if they play along.
    When 2 or 3 people are walking ahead of you, run between them yelling "Red Rover."
    When a clerk asks if they can help you, begin to cry and ask, "Why can't you people just leave me alone?"
    When an announcement comes over the loud speaker, assume the fetal position and scream "NO! NO! It's those voices again!!!"
    When someone steps away from his or her cart to look at something, quickly make off with it without saying a word.
    When there are people behind you, walk really slowly, especially in thin aisles.
    While handling guns in the hunting department, ask the clerk if he knows where the anti-depressants are.
    While walking through the clothing department, ask yourself loud enough for all to hear, "Who buys this crap anyway?!"

    ROFLMAO!!! I'm rolling here!!! I love the fishing idea...might have to try that one next!! :D

    DiO'Bolic Not completely obtuse

    Bored at Walmart? I don’t get it. Most guys I know don’t go into stores to “shop,” they go into to “buy something” and get the heck out (unless it’s a sporting goods or hardware store that is). :)

    All the people at my Wal-Mart must have read this.

    If a Walmart associate asks if they can help you, look at them shocked and say: "You can see me?"

    I sell Carhartt clothing in my department at work and am happy to say that they have begun making their clothing here in America and so far it hasn't changed the prices either.

    Seriously, has anyone here ever seen an individual like this at your local Walmart? I wonder sometimes if these people are actually real. I've seen some different looking people in my time, but none to this extent.
    Neesy and kingricefan like this.

    I had worked at Wall Mart for 2 years, and yes “These people are actually real”; and yes I have had to deal with people doing every single thing on GNTLGNT list repeatedly.

    Only 3 of those things are actually irritating enough to make me mad

    Follow people through the aisles, staying about 5 feet behind them. Do this until they leave the store.
    (Nobody wants or likes to feel like they are about to be prison shanked)

    Take off your shoes and tell them you want to return it and when they say you didn't buy it there say, "Hm... I thought the customer was always right!"
    (Customer is hardly ever right, and usually very wrong)

    Move "Caution: Wet Floor" signs to carpeted areas.
    (if the spot you moved the sign from was still wet; because then half a dozen customers would walk up to every employee they see and threaten to sue – threatening deaf ears unless you threaten corporate; no in store employee can do anything about people trying to sue Wall-Mart. More than likely any legal case you have is against the corporation and no employee would be personally affected by it, not that you would gain much if you sued a minim waged part time employee of Wall Mart)

    This is not on GNTLGT list, but it’s the most ridiculous thing to say to an employee at Wall Mart.
    If I didn’t give you what you want and you demand to speak to management and insist you’re going to get me fired.

    1. 96% of the time management agrees with me (because you asked me to do something against store policy, so they are not going to support or help you with what I refused you)
    2. Customer you do not have the authority to fire an employee
    3. Even if you are able to get a Wall-Mart employee fired, do you think they will consider it a big loss to get fired from Wall Mart
