Dear Wal-Mart buyer

Dear Wal-mart buyer person,

While I was buying Halloween candy yesterday, (that is a week away) I saw a very disturbing site. Your co-worker were taking down Halloween costumes. Boxing up the candy, putting away masks, stacking the make-up, a whole flock of them.

I asked one of your drone bees why they were packing the future holiday selections. We said " We have to put out the Christmas stuff tonight."

WHAT??!!! Are you freaking kidding me?? For reals?? I mean really??

I said "It's a little early, don't you think?"

Bees said " Yes, that's what I thought. But it's what our boss said to do."

Yeah I guess I cant freak out on the drone bees. So I'm freaking out on you, Wal-Mart buyer/supplier!

Can you please just wait until October 31?

I mean I understand that Christmas is a big holiday. I know that you must make a zillion dollars from this blown out of wack holiday.

But really?? The second to last week in October!!

There are still people buying candy for next week. There are people still needing last minute costumes. There are still people that are waiting for the decorations to go on sale!!!!!!!!

So can you please keep your money grabbing, holiday gift card seeking hands off the Halloween stuff until next week??? PLEASE!!!

K thanks for reading!

One pretty upset costumer!

That's crazy!!! Who does that!Halloween is still a week away. No fair to be taking all of the stuff down early. You should write a letter to the corporate office. I was at the craft store the other day and they had almost all of thier Halloween stuff put away too though. Crazy! :o)

Oh gosh. I hate wal-mart in a kind of-I need you, but really despise you-kind of way. Jon and I kinda did a little happy dance the other day when we were in Costco and it was packed...we kept thinking, I bet wal-mart is dead! Wohoo!

Anyways...

Do people in AK not trick or treat?

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

do they believe in Santa there more than they do trick or treating?

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

is this bothering you? I just thought about all of these questions.

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

to bad you don't have a comment counter on your page.

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

It's crazy, isn't it and yet on my blog were doing this crazy Christmas swap, which you are part of!! But on the tins for the magnets, I saw some at Roberts for 2.99 a piece. They were a little bit deeper than the one's that I used. Micheals also has some.
