MrBallou: It's got walmart and pooh. How can you beat that?


When I was at Walmart I had to take a dump.  So I went to the restroom, sat down and did my business.  When I tried to stand up I couldn't!  I then realized that someone had put glue on the toilet seat and I was stuck.  I yelled for help for 15 minutes before another customer came in.  I had to go to the emergency room to get my ass separated from the seat.  It was a nightmare!

I prefer the crapping-in-the-water-fountain route when I'm at Walmart.

possibly nsfw. some profanity.

/it's like having a 200,000 sq. ft. bathroom.

You didn't check the seat before you sat down?

Wait, you use your kids to commit crimes and child protective services doesn't come knocking? WTF?

The real crime at Walmart is the low low prices!

It's hard to keep track of all these toilet scams. Maybe I should keep a log.

She did this eighteen times and didn't think that they'd catch on?  Not the smoothest log in the bowl, is she?

OhioUGrad: Her parents are dicks! Shannon Cannon? WTF?


Maybe that's actually her husband's last name.

Who am I kidding? She was scamming at Walmart with her kids in tow. No way they have the same dad or she's married to any of 'em.

With that name her parents probably planned for the stripper career young, too.

As a kid, I knew an older girl whose name was Snow White.  No lie.  Some people just... think it's okay.

How pathetic must a person be to need to scam a few dollars out of Walmart because their shoes got wet?
 
2013-10-30 06:17:40 AM  
The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/197sa17 ) police arrested 34-year-old Shannon Cannon on Monday.

I guess they took care of that loose cannon.

Our youngest got to be named by me.(Very difficult birth and wife was out of it when he popped out) They handed me the form and I named him.  Justin Case.  Wife wasn't too happy about that but other than the occasional time when we will be talking about something and say "you know we had better do this, JUST IN CASE, he will come asking what did we want.
He doesn't seem to mind actually hasn't had any problems, but one of his teachers this year has the last name Rugg.  I told my wife, "Good god, think of the mayhem I would have caused if that was our last name."

/name my kids, Throw, Area, and Shag.

Apparently hereditary, too, after all she involved her kids in the scam.

"Cannons used in Waterloo"

NO WAI....

The key to a good scam is never repeating yourself. You can get away with almost anything once, if you're caught just play dumb.

Doing the same thing 18 times is just asking for trouble.

You might think that the people who shiat on the floor of the Walmart restroom are the cretins, but in reality, its the people who are smart enough to know not to touch anything with their bare ass cheeks in a Walmart.

Put purse on floor.  Flood toilet.  Claim purse and contents are ruined, and demand ten times their actual worth as "compensation".  It's the kind of scheme a semi-moron woudl come up with.

Hah. So many people dream of naming their kids something fun, and so few actually follow through. :)

I have a designer baby name (sigh), so I was okay with naming our kid something fun. He's about as normal as-- Well... He's okay... :P

I could never get my Chinese brother-in-law whose last name is Lee to name one of his sons Robert E.
They did live in South Carolina at the time.

I had a friend years ago whose last name was Goodnight who said people were continually suggesting Irene for his girl's name.

I thought about giving the Fish kids some oddball names.  There's a lot more choices for girls:  Angel, Star, Goldie.  If we had twin boys (I'm a twin myself) I would have pushed for "Thunder" and "Lightning".  We ended going with uncommon but "normal" names.

Always check the seat, if you do not see anything you go over it with toilet paper anyway to catch what you did not see.

Pro tip: if you carry hand sanitizer with you, wipe the seat with it.  Mmm clean.  Though you might end up breeding antimicrobial-resistant toilet bacteria, the janitor's cleanser will kill those within 24 hours.
