I've been shopping at WalMart since I became disabled, and I have noticed a few things while shopping there. During the bubble, when they tried to go up-scale, the cashiers were pretty and the store was full. The pretty girls are gone now, and the lot is mostly empty in the evening. At first it was because there was no money and God only knows where people were shopping. But something has changed.

Now, it seems that the pretty girls have gone to work at the mall. I say that because the mall lot (an SPG mall) is mostly full, and there are lots of aggressive drivers on the road. More teenage drivers means they have money for cars and gas, or at least their parents do. I've also noticed that the rents are up at the faux-gated apartment complex on the way there. And I scored a Maisto Ducati model in the toy section of WalMart while looking for a nice toy for my granddaughter.

So, at least here, and for now, things seem to be looking up.
