Trashy Trucker Pigs Invade Walmart At Ottawa, IL

I know the headline is provocative, but I'm kinda angry at the other truckers I see here in this parking lot.  

Today I told Matt I needed supplies, like kitty litter and toys.  He agreed and asked me if he could buy stuff for himself, too.  I said okay.  When we got to Wally World we were shocked to find SIX shopping carts full of trucker trash.  Sometimes we see one with junk in it, but SIX???

This is the Walmart in Ottawa, IL at exit 90 on I-80, a favorite for truckers because Walmart doesn't enforce the "no semi" rule regarding parking in their lots.  It's good for us because things cost half as much at Walmart as opposed to truck stops that seem out to gouge us.

Many Walmarts throughout the country have banned truck parking for all trucks not owned by Walmart because of behavior like this by truckers.  They have security cameras in the lot, so why not ban individual companies caught littering?  That's a mystery.  Guess it's easier to ban everyone.  And that's just what they'll do if these rookies don't clean up their act.

Well, that is plain rude! No wonder they're banned in most wally lots, but that just makes it harder for those of you who don't leave a mess to find a place to park and shop.

We're with you and Jan -- leaving trash around like that is just rude and lazy. Come on, guys, at least walk the cart back to the store.

Glad to see you and Matt are still hanging in there.
