Journey to Walmart again

  • I went to Walmart again and this time I ordered pickup
  • Before getting in the car I grabbed my trekking pole & 40th birthday cowboy hat
  • When I got to Walmart I Drove around the whole parking lot 3 times trying to find the pickup spot.
  • In the end I couldn’t find it, so I went inside
  • The greeter tried to get me to go to the other side of the store
  • She could see I was not into that
  • She told me I could use the app to tell them I was here, but she didn’t know how to do that or what it was called and Neither did I
  • She said that I could park my car near the garden area
  • Turning Around to get out of there I moved unsteadily and the greeter reached out to steady me
  • I used my trekking pole
  • I went back to my car.
  • When I was getting in my car a woman in the parking lot said “I admire you. You’re out here, and you’re doing your thing”
  • Then I drove my car to the Garden area and parked on the curb
  • There was a sign to call a phone number if you were here to pick up.
  • I called and no one answered
  • People with blue vests were walking around my car.
  • I told one of them that I had called and he said that no one answered because he was the only one working.
  • He said that he would help me. He went off and came back in a few minutes with the shirts
