K-Mart Forever

I must say I almost cried when I learned of K-Mart Forever. It’s a site devoted to people supporting K-Mart, even though the company is in Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Tell us your fun, touching, interesting or just plain weird stories that involve Kmart. Had a baby in a Kmart store? Conducted a local rally to support Kmart? Know a famous person who used to work at Kmart? Did a local newspaper or television station run a great story on your local Kmart? We want to hear about it!

Me too. Me too. It’s nice that some people are also giving back to the otherwise heartless giant corporation in its time of need. Just remember… when you needed pliers, an Icee, and a blender… K-Mart was there for you!

So what if my english and grammar are bad. I work at Kmart big whoop. I have worked there a long time. I now work for twenty-tweens who are lazy idiots. They are the esteemed kmart asst mgrs. They do not know their butts from a hole in the ground, but they are smart enough to figure out how to get the few employees who are working to do their job too so that they can sit around in the office and eat, do their hair, do their nails, and talk on their cell phones. I lift furniture, pools, swingsets, bring in carts, load dirt, anything else heavy, and yet the mgrs. want me to have override numbers because they are too lazy to walk upfront to do an override. The audacity of these little twits whom between the 2 of them don’t have a year in at kmart.
Janae, I may write the book first. I don’t know who is more rude the customers or the mgrs. I have a similar story for all the ones you told. I think it should be required for all people to do mandatory service in a retail store, just like the military maybe then they would treat “lowly, unintelligent, clerks” better. Oh, and sometimes I act dumb to customers who are really bad, its really frustrating for them when they can’t get anywhere with a dummy.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
