The Worst Things to Ever Happen at Walmart

It’s no secret that Walmart is a festering hive of humanity and "stuff", brimming with the cheapest items imaginable, and oddly delicious potato wedges. The Walmart stories on this list cover everything from the people who shop at Walmart, to animals who make the store their home, and even some of the gross tactics that the company uses against its employees. After you finish reading about all the things that happened at Walmart you’ll want to buy a bulk jar of hand sanitizer and pour it all over your body just so you can feel clean again. That’s how good these stories of the worst things that ever happened in Walmart are.

It’s not hard to find trashy Walmart stories, but to find the grimiest stories about the American Super Center we had to dig deep and find news reports about some of the craziest things that could only happen at a Walmart.

Before you take a look at these crazy Walmart fails, open up a giant bag of off-brand cereal, and crack open a refreshing can of Sam’s Cola. Then leave a comment if you’ve ever seen something crazy happen while you were shopping for deals at a Super Center.
