  • people hound me the most about walmart, sams club, coca cola, mcdonalds and nestle. like how could i possibly find something wrong with these "very american" companies. but if i get started on the why they just start rolling their eyes at me.

    what a lonely purchasing existence i lead :) haha

  • I do not go Walmart, McDonalds and similar places , plus any stores at which I have received bad service in the past . I try to avoid ' Made in China ' , with some success but I will buy imports from other countries . I am not brand loyal, more interested in the ' bang for the buck '.
