  1. My FIL lives out in the middle of nowhere there’s literally no cell service and the only thing within 15 mins is a gas station and a shop and save. 30 mins to the Walmart and McDonalds. Not my idea of a great location to live but he’s happy there.

  2. There is something authentic Americana reading Sam Walton’s biography. He was authentic in the early days. But it is funny how you can see the small variety store policies are what have morphed into the awful labor practices there now.

    For example, Sam Walton used to use airplanes to scout out where a store should be, quite novel for that time. But he couldn’t stand paying a pilot to be on stand by, so when he was flown to a Walmart location, he would make pilots do inventory while they weren’t flying.
