There is a really beautiful girl that works at the Pharmacy there. I once asked her where she was from and she said Turkey.

Most of the women I saw in Iraq and Afghanistan were ugly as a mud fence. Big harry moles on their faces and buck teeth.

I figured the men make them wear those burkas to cover up their ugly..........

That's a bit sexist don't you think? Where I work there are a lot of women in management and they do a damn fine job! I'm sure you're just trying to get something started but come on now. The meth part I'd have to agree with you there. There are a lot of crankster gangsters that would love a Walmart, I'm sure of it.
No not at all, I can tell you this from personal experience. Maybe from a biased eye, as a woman yourself, you feel like they did a "damn fine job", but as someone with years of experience in management positions, that's not the case at all when you look at it on paper in performance reports/reviews. Not only that, but women are emotional beings that continuously bring emotion and drama to the job. I worked at a really "woman friendly" company several years ago that went out of their way to hire women into management positions. It was a complete mess, and I was given the daunting task of keeping them under control and working in tandem. Constantly arguing and getting inner office drama going on, constant nit picking of other women that they felt threatened by, just constant drama drama drama. And when they failed at performing their jobs in an acceptable manner and it was brought to their attention, it was always cries of sexism and discrimination. And last but not least, there was the constant abuse of FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act). Playing the FML card for everything from kids being late for school to menstrual problems. I had a woman at one point who missed every other week consecutively for over a year claiming her kid was sick (yet provided no medical documentation) and just couldn't figure out why we wouldn't move her up in the company. If you really know anything about management, you know that you pretty much have to be on the job or on call 24/7. So tell me this, why would anyone in their right mind want to put a woman in a management position when you'd have to deal with these issues? Especially when you can put the same qualified man there and not deal with it at all? I'm not being "sexist" or "trying to start something" at all, I'm just stating a fact.

. I am really confused because you only get 12 weeks of FMLA a year, and at my company you must reapply every 6 months and if you don't have enough work hours you won't qualify and I'm pretty sure every other week would knock you out of eligability.

My mom worked in Afghanistan for two years and sometimes went on her R&R to Dubai. She said they make them cover up so no other men look at them. They're are some pretty females over there though. All of the men are disgusting. Lol.

You really have to have a boring life to be excited about a Wal-Mart coming to your town. It is so funny to see people all happy and giddy to have a crappy store coming to their town. But if shopping st Wal-Mart makes you happy and feels you with joy, then by all means I hope they build it soon.

Many things said here are true but I will say this.
I live in a small town in XXXXXXXXXXXXXX . The city fathers were mean to Walmart and told them through the years that they werent welcome and to go away.
They did. They built a new supercenter down the road in another county in a very very small town.
Now that little town has a ton of new stores to compliment the new shopping center and plenty of tax revenue for city coffers. All the people here go there to shop and spend their money.
THINK property tax hikes.
Utility hikes etc.
You would do well with a Walmart in your town.
Its a tax generator pig for the town.
If you dont want to shop there dont but if its like the town Im in, the city fathers have their own gig going on and dont want any competition.
Still, you people should campaign for it.. anything ..this day and time.

Gross, I'll still drive to Louisville and shop at Meijer and Target. WalMart sells nothing but cheaply made JUNK. I can spot an outfit bought at WalMart from a mile away and that is NOT a good thing.
Judgemental much? Maybe if you get your head out of your uptight ass you'd realize some people can't afford clothes from meijer or target.$55 for the SAME kind of jacket walmart has for a 'low low price'. People like you make me sick. I'm thankful I was raised to show respect whether a person's outfit is from walmart or a high dollar store. Before you become a smart ass, no i don't buy clothes from Walmart unless it is white t-shirts but I also don't down anyone who buys within their budget!

As far as the people working there being ugly who gives a rats a ss. As long as they do their job who cares. Unless you're a pervert you don't go there to check out all the women anyways.
we don't need wal-mart we need a whorehouse. I miss gobels & I'm tired of the Asian spa!

I grew up Ina small town and moved here about 8 years ago. It shocked me that there is no Walmart. I can go to Walmart but a 24 case of coke for $6 or I can go to Shepherdsville Kroger and get a 12 pack for $5. Kroger is way to high so it needs the competition. I hate how expensive Kroger is I buy nothing but name brand when it comes to food bc I'm a spoiled brat and I believe that the food taste better. It will also give more jobs to Shepherdsville so it's a win, win.

. Oh you poor white trash! Do you REALLY THINK clothes from Target and Meijer are expensive? Do you really think those are nice clothes? Do you really feel well dresses in those clothes? Well, you really have a lot to learn. Those are the cheap clothes of society. I would NEVER be caught in those clothes, but you are pobsbly the same peron who goes to a laundry and stuffs all their clothes in one washer. Get an eduction. Get a job. Get some self respect. Try going to louisvile in the east in and shop , oh better yet, just go to a east end Goodwill and you will probably be happy there. Happy shopping.

I would prefer shopping at any consignment store to shopping at Wal-Mart. I don't have a ton of money to spend on clothing so I would rather buy better clothes and have less than to buy a bunch of poorly made junk that will start to fall apart with regular washing. I also won't shop at Old Navy, Kohl's, Goody's and Aeropostale because the quality of the merchandise is so poor, anything I've bought at those stores rarely lasts longer than one season. Most of the clothing I've bought at Meijer, Target and TJ Maxx has held up well and I feel okay about spending my hard earned money at those places. You think it makes me judgemental, I think it makes me a smart shopper.

Oh hell yea, poor white trash & proud. You really have the nerve to call me 'white trash' but you're on here acting like the biggest piece of trash. Yes $55 is high for a child's coat when Walmart has the same one for a lot cheaper. Where in my statement did i say my clothes come from there??? I'm sure you're one of those people who go in debt so you SEEM high class but darlin you are FAR from that. Bless your heart. You know nothin about me. ;) Have a nice day now.
