Walmart's, Just counted and there are eight within 20 miles and four within 10 miles. Unless they just built one I don't know about yet.

Why would it be the right thing to take care of someone else's trash? If I did that, I would never get out of the parking lot, the task would be never-ending. Why stop with the empty DEF jugs?

I prefer the self-checkouts; lets me avoid chatty cashiers.

Well said. Thank you. We also avoid WalMart as much as possible. I don't like how they treat small businesses that try to do business with them.

Back on topic. While I don't stay over night at their parking lots, I hope they don't band that option. We prefer Cabelas or Crackle Barrel for the occasional overnight stop.

Personally, I like WalMart. Whose fault is it that they carry a lot of Chinese products? You want cheap prices, most of the time you're going to be buying imported goods. (Notice I said MOST of the time). Most of the jobs at WM are not highly skilled jobs. How much do you think WM SHOULD pay them? $25/hr? Then you can complain about high prices for imported products. Maybe it's me, but I would prefer a "chatty" cashier over a grumpy one. And I prefer to interact with a cashier rather than a machine. Our local WM is not a super WM, and not a very big one. BUT, I can get a lot of stuff there that I can't get anywhere else, locally anyway. AND, they have a very good selection of camping equipment.
Also, I agree that at least they put the containers in a cart. Seven DEF containers? Wouldn't that be a lot for anyone at one time? I don't know, I'm asking.

Shame on the individual who didn't properly dispose of the jugs; could have been a local customer who brought the empty ones back. Who knows? I personally respect Walmart for corporately allowing us to park as long as we are respectful of their properties. I usually spend $100 or so when parking and return multiple carts to their cart storage slots on the parking lot. Someone else doesn't like to stay there? Leaves more room for me. Thanks.
