what gives?!??!

so I use Suave shampoo and conditioner for color treated hair. until recently, finding it hasn't been a problem. last week I realized I was running low on shampoo so when I was at Kmart (because for SOOOOOOME reason R thinks they are the greatest place in the world for jeans......don't ask, I have no clue) I went over to the hair care section to grab some shampoo and conditioner. well, they didn't HAVE the shampoo....just conditioner. there wasn't even a tag marking the spot for shampoo. like people who have color treated hair don't wash their hair?!?!?

needless to say, I didn't buy the conditioner.

this morning I was ahead of schedule (well, really more like ON schedule) and had a few minutes before work started to cruise Walmart. as a rule I tend not to shop there, but can't beat the fact that they are open at 7am while my beloved Target is not open until 8am......30 minutes after I start work. I went over to get myself my shampoo and conditioner (and Swiss Ives facial scrub that I can't seem to find anywhere else either for some reason). oddly enough........they had the shampoo but not the conditioner. (insert shocked smilie here) what gives?!?!? atleast there was a shelf tag for the conditioner. am I buying some fad product that has reached such high demands that it can't be kept in stock?!?!? it is just generic shampoo and conditioner for crying out loud!

needless to say, I bought the shampoo. guess I need to stop at Kmart on the way home now.

Either shop at Walmart or don't. It is kind of like gay marriage. If you don't want gay marriage, don't get one. I hate it when people say they are against Walmart and then tell about the bargains they get there. People say all they carry is crap and then talk about brand names they buy there. Be true to yourself but don't tell people lies about not liking something and then tell us about going there. MUD

odd analogy there Dennis! I didn't tell people not to shop at Walmart and I didn't throw stones at those who do. I merely stated that I tend NOT to shop there....and then gave the parameters for why I WOULD shop there! I also didn't disparage the products that they carry, just stated that Walmart is not my first choice in retailers. I also hate going to the ob/gyn but plan on visiting him real soon too. (and will most likely blog a little about it) thanks for visiting my blog. but the next time you do visit, please actually read the entry before calling me a liar.

Dear MUD,
Oh no you didn't! First of all, I would like you to go back and read aloud the sentence in which Susan claims she is against Wal-Mart. And the one in which she says Wal-Mart carries crap. And then the one in which she says that the shampoo was a bargain. I don't heeeeaaar you...
I believe the post was about shampoo. Not Wal-Mart.

So, in response to what Susan was actually writing about, yeah, that stinks. Same thing happened at our BX, we had a certain brand of conditioner, but not the shampoo. I drove 20 minutes to another bx where they had the shampoo but not the conditioner. You'd think they'd stock those things in similar quantities. Perhaps that's why some people use 2-in-1 stuff, been burned too many times by the shampoo/conditioner aisle!

Mud, you obviously didn't read Susan's original post.. or perhaps you just skimmed quick and saw a few key words... whatever. But see, the thing is.. this is SUSAN's blog. If she wants to write about guy men who boycot K-Mart and the reason's you should too.. that's HER perogative. If you don't like it.. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE.

LOL I hate Walmart. I almost never shop there but not for any moral reason it just seems soooooo overwhelming. I'm a Target fan. LOL
