The Wal-Mart plague was first detected in the early ‘60s.

Today I went to Wal-Mart (or the Death Star, as my mother calls it) to pick up a ridiculously cheap prescription. As I stood miserable in the line at the pharmacy, a woman sitting in the waiting area behind me was jibberjabbering on a cell phone.

After one particularly piercing shout, I turned to see a three-year-old boy giving the cell phone lady a very confident middle finger.
