The internet is notorious for miscellaneous content. One such example is the everlasting phenomenon known as “People of Walmart.” Ever since the original website by the same name appeared back in sometime around 2009, it has become a bona fide repository of Americana, the un-airbrushed view of real people and genuine characters who don’t ever end up on magazine covers.
But they sometimes make headlines. Quoting this decade-old NPR opinion piece “Is Walmart A Magnet For American Mayhem?” the dispatches from the field in 2011 followed: “A customer was nabbed by police for sampling raw meat at a Walmart in Pennsylvania. A woman said she had an encounter with a bat at a Walmart in Minnesota. A family of five was living in a car at a Walmart in Florida. A girl had a run-in with a monkey at a Walmart in Missouri. A man was caught in flagrante delicto at a Walmart in Louisiana. And that is just in the past few weeks.” You can see how Walmart became a sort of Wonderland calling to the adventurous spirits.

The phenomenon was also spotted by The Wall Street Journal where Miguel Bustillo explained it in "Today's Special at Wal-Mart: Something Weird": "Almost any imaginable aspect of American life can and does take place inside Wal-Mart stores, from births to marriages to deaths. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin once officiated a wedding at the Wal-Mart in her hometown of Wasilla."
“People Of Walmart” proved to be excellent entertainment for the internet and social media. Today, more than ten years after it emerged, the fascination with it is stronger than ever. Created at around the time the phenomenon occurred, the subreddit People Of Walmart follows the legacy of many online accounts and groups and websites dedicated to the weird, wholesome, and unique shoppers spotted in the hypermarket.

That test is ridiculous. Most Americans couldn't pass it. But congratulations!!! I am proud as well
Bored Panda reached out to Lina Survila, the founder and editor in chief of online magazine “Abstract Stylist” who shared some thoughts about the root of our fascination with People of Walmart. “Life happens in the weirdest places. People have a history of documenting things that don't make sense or make us gasp every time. Not long ago, people shared some unusual happenings that might confirm UFOs' existence, think of crazy happenings in the sky or their backyard,” she said.
“Today, simple things raise so many questions, and people are drawn to document them. Well, the Walmart people project captures perfect moments that amaze, scare, or intrigue others,” Lina said. “It's so appealing to watch other people and make backstories about how they ended up in the craziest situations. And a shopping store is a perfect place to do that.”

Moreover, by looking at the pictures of a bunch of unusual and intriguing people spotted in Walmart, in our minds, we aim to articulate what we see and find reasons why. Lina argues that “we let our imagination run wild when we see an unusual situation and more often create an unbelievable story about ‘what the hell just happened here.’” It’s all part of the game, and it’s easy to get obsessed with it.

Been there, dude jumped in line in front of me to ask about a coupon. No mask back in 2020. The sings were up and the 6ft rule was in place but while I was checking out he asks about a damn coupon. Completely oblivious.

WHO TOLD Y... I mean, that's ridiculous
I wish, unfortunatly, I live here :(
For those assuming this is just the US: WalMart is *international*. You may have one nearer than you think. (US, Mexico, UK, China, etc. They use different company name in African countries (Game Foodco, CBW, and Builders Warehous) . They're also found across South America. Creepy but true. They're also in *Canada* ---- bought out Woolco.
As a majority shareholder in Massmart. Definitely don't find these people in Builders or Makro.
I frequent Builders more often than most of the staff.. And yes they definitely exist. Tho they are just slightly more scarce then staff members.
Staff are a rarity in Builders, so we go to Chamberlains. I'll check out Makro more closely next time. I've seen people in slippers, but that's about as bad as it gets.
Yeah, well, do you look? That's the trick.
I loved Woolco and Woolworths.
Builders Warehouse isn't a Wallmart, we don't have this sort of customer in South Africa.
You do realise this isn't a walmart problem but an an entitled americans problem, right? You try any of this behaviour in the civilised world and shoppers & staff alike will simply put you on the ground and have you arrested for destruction of property, theft, and public indecency.
Where the hell do they get this crap? There are two Walmart Supercenters in my town, one on the east side and one on the west, and while you will see the occasional morbidly obese scooter babe without whom it simply wouldn't be Walmart, I guarantee you'll never *ever* see anything like most of these.
Me either and I go to Walmart almost every weekend for supplies. Never have I ever seen this type of stuff in any of the 3 supercenters I live near.
Probably in a small town in Florida that I lived in for a few terrible months.
