Bringing joy to Wal-Mart

How to make a Wal-Mart employee and the teenagers blocking the aisle playing the store's video game (TBTAPTSVG) laugh.

Me: Excuse me, do you carry a sensor bar for the Wii?
Employee: Just the bar?
Me: Yes, just the bar.
Employee: You don't want the whole Wii?
Me: No, say... your dog ate the wire on the bar and you need just that.

Of course, it meant the TBTAPTSVG mocked me, asking "how they even get to it?" But I take the axiom, "always leave them laughing" very, very seriously. Even at Wal-Mart.

Hate Wal-Mart. Hate the people in there. Hate the store employees who act like they are doing you the favor instead of the other way around. Hate hate hate!!!!!!!

There, I feel all better now that I have that out of my system!

I wonder how the Wal-Mart employees feel about customers going ape shit because they need a wii bar. Try that next time...and video tape it.
