    I don't know if this is legitimate or not, but it's still funny (click on this for a bigger view):</a>

    Some of those pranks are funny, like the alarm clocks. Others are stupid, like pouring tomato juice on the floor.

    According to snopes.com, it's a hoax. A good read nonetheless.</a>

    While working at a department store similar to K-Mart, I actually did the alarm clock thing once. Got bored and wandered over to electronics, and set about 7 or 8 clocks to the same time, then set all of the alarms for the same time. 10 minutes later, they all started going off and you could hear them halfway across the store.
    Good times.

    There was a joke email that listed these and other pranks as What to do if you're bored at Wal Mart. They had a lot of those pranks and others.

    It circulated pretty regularly a couple of years ago.

    Fucking brilliant. I've got nothing to do. Hmm, Wal*Mart?

    Thought this was about a pretty good feature in today's Wall Street Journal...a woman who is a reporter or an editor with the WSJ got 86'd from the Kmart near her vacation home after they thought she was switching tags on a pair of flip-flops. She was buying them for her kids, couldn't find a box for them so she grabbed a box off the shelf and stuck 'em in there. Turns out she put a $16 pair of flip-flops in an $8 box. She was held and told never to shop at that Kmart, despite the fact that she had just spent $800 at the store and offered to pay the difference on the shoes. Real funny thing is, they took the shoes away from her, so after she went through all this crap, her little girl is asking her "Mommy, where are my flip-flops for the beach?"

    I've never been so miserable as the summer I worked at K-Mart.

    Completely brain-numbing, sucking-the-life-and-fighting-spirit-out-of-me work.

    The old K-Mart logo was a giveaway.

    The beauty of shopping K-Mart was, the store was always almost deserted and you didn't have to fight the crowd at Wal-Mart.

    Unfortunately, that is the reason why K-Mart is no longer in Texas.
