    Apparently WalMart thinks their shoppers aren't too bright....

    Brilliant. Maybe it'll free up the express lanes for those who really do have 15 items or less...

    I would think Walmart is correct in its assessment of the mental capabilities of its customers.

    The big question is how could they expect the shoppers to understand the meaning of the sign when it still requires the ability to count the fingers on the sign and relate it with the number items in the cart??????

    Also not sure this is really a walmart, since there is a best buy sign in the background.

    My problem is that when someone gets in that Express Line with mega items the cashier does not have the guts to tell them to get out of the line and go to one of the other registers ( just my 2 cents ) TOM

    Wal-Mart stores do not have wooden ceilings and track lighting.

    Every Walmart I've been in had express check out lines. Normally the two on each end of the registers. Jackie B.

    You just gotta love Walmart, if for nothing else, for it's therapeutic value (which is free).

    Should you ever encounter any self-esteem issues, merely stand in front of the store on a busy Friday for approx. 20 minutes and observe the clientele.....works wonders and is a whole cheaper and less time consuming than a therapist!!

    And, no 12 Step program!

    The one good thing about Walmart that is hard to dispute is that it is a good place to get you walking exercise in and stay warm. You can walk even if it raining outside. You don't have to worry about someone trying to rob you either. LOL Jackie B.
