There is one establishment in America that truly sum up the country as a whole. A place where people from all walks of life shop, act out, and reveal both their most creative and ugliest traits. A place that makes you sad but has deals you can't deny, a place full of complexity overshadowed by all of the antics taking place.
This place is none other than Walmart -- a mecca of capitalist malaise, underpaid and mistreated workers, and customers mired in despair and blue flavored Gatorade.
The depressing and story-filled nature of Walmart is SO widely known there's a whole PeopleOfWalmart Tumblr dedicated to documenting all the goings-on. While there are certainly instances of thinly veiled classism and fat-shaming aside, it's undeniable that Walmart is a place full of stories and characters.
