You never know what kind of adventures you will have on a day to day basis, especially when it comes to going to Wally World.
Yesterday, I went with my neighbor Brittney and her son Trace to pick up her wedding dress at David’s Bridal. After we picked up her dress, we went to Wal-Mart in Hamburg to pay rent, and the trip there was pretty interesting within itself. Due to the fact that we both have never been to the Wal-Mart in Hamburg, we used Brittney’s GPS in order to get there. Where did the GPS take us? It took us to Wal-Mart, alright.
IT TOOK US TO THE PROJECTS, WHICH WAS LOCATED RIGHT IN THE VERY BACK OF WAL-MART. WITH A FENCE BETWEEN US AND WHERE WE NEEDED TO BE.
DAMN YOU, GPS.
Thankfully it wasn’t too hard to figure out how to get to the other side of the fence to Wal-Mart, but here’s the funny part of that situation there. The GPS originally took us into a little run down “projects” apartment complex type of area in order to get there, which was obviously incorrect. When we pull out of the parking lot back onto the main drag, we see across the street that there is a really nice, high class apartment complex.
Once again, damn you GPS. Why couldn’t you accidentally turn us into the really pretty apartments driveway?
(Note: We thought it was pretty funny. No offense intended for those who do live in the projects.)
Anyway, back to the topic on hand. Once we finally find our way to Wal-Mart, it looks like a friggin’ huge bank from the outside! I don’t know how many of you have been to the Wal-Mart in Hamburg NY, but there are 3 entrances. 2 for the obvious Market and Pharmacy, but then another for the Outdoor Living.
ALL E ENTRANCES HAVE PILLARS. LIKE A BANK.
Walmart’s trying to look all fancy now.
We park, pay rent, blah blah blah.
We then decide to walk around Wal-Mart JUST to see how big the place is, and of course you don’t walk into a Wal-Mart with the intention of not buying anything and walk out without buying anything. Either way, we had quite a fun time walking around, looking at stuff, and that is where Aunt Tara became a bad influence for Trace!
I taught him how to use a water fountain, but I also kind of taught him to stick his hand in it and get his hand all wet. (Sorry, Mom and Dad!) We got to look at the fishies, look at all the Easter stuff and the stuffed bunnies, tried to video chat Uncle Tim to say hi and show him all the fun he was missing out on, and spent most of the time “searching” and chasing Mommy up and down the isles just to “get her”.
Trace is seriously the best nephew. Now I need to go buy him all the obnoxious toys and whatever Blaze and Paw Patrol toys he wants in order to be the “cool aunt” and make him come want to live with me!
(I will also include that after we got home, I went next door to hang out a bit more and Trace and I spent at least 10 minutes turning the living room light on and off and “not being able to see”. Stinker.)
