So last week i was watching the news & saw a story about the corporate monster Walmart changing their sixteen year old logo. Apparently the background will be orange, & their new image will be a sunburst.
The first thing that came to my mind was how much signage they would end up having to change. I don’t know how much the new look is going to affect the public but hey, whatever helps them sleep at night.
Either way, I’ll still be a rebellious hypocrite of Walmart & the “Walmart Phenomenon.”
The “Walmart Phenomenon” is an unexplained behavior that seems to affect most Walmart customers that I have spoken to. The stories though varied are mostly the same plot: Customer needs a few items from Walmart, end result with customer leaving store, vaguely staring down at receipt for $100 in confusion.
Where does all the money go?
