A Bad Day Just Got Worse...!


Some days you're better off staying at home!

Here is a case in point. This is definitely one of those days to stay inside and NOT show the world just how stupid you really are! It's probably a pretty well known fact anyway, especially in your own neighborhood! No need to flaunt it!

BRADENTON - Samuel Lott was having a bad day, and he wanted to smash something.

Authorities said the 22-year-old man was intoxicated when took a baseball bat to several TVs at a Walmart in the 5300 block of Cortez Road, causing over $2,000 in damage.

Police said they found Lott in the electronics section of the 24-hour Walmart at around 3:30 a.m. on Monday. He had a half-full beer bottle at his feet and three smashed flat-screen TVs around him, police said.

When police arrested Lott, he told them he was “having a bad day” and that was why he smashed the TVs, according to an arrest report. The baseball bat was also from Walmart, police said.

Good thing this fool was smart enough to stay out of the sporting goods section. That's where they have the guns and ammo! Go into a section like that and start acting stupid...it could be detrimental to your health!

I think I need to start another Blog totally for the really stupid folks! Trouble is, there re so many of them out there I'd run out of room way too soon! Besides, I don't want to get too close 'cause some of this stupidity might rub off!

Let's get some coffee and sit in the kitchen...it seems to still be raining outside!

Hey Jim,

Seems to me this isn't the first time this has happened at a Walmart.

Wasn't it earlier this year someone went on a rampage smashing TVs in Georgia?

Maybe we should check the sound systems for subliminal programming.

Hey Catman...
There must be something about Wally World that just pisses folks off! Couldn't happen to a more deserving store!

Thanks, buddy, for the visit today!

...hmmm,lemme see...walmart?...crazy guy with a bat?...leaves me no one to root for...

HermitJim said...

Hey Ken...
I'm thinking maybe the guy was on his way home from the local "Zombie Class"!

Or like Catman said, maybe there are hidden messages in the music they play over the loud speakers!

Now days you just never know!

Hey, thanks for coming over, my friend!

Hi Hermitim, just caught up on some of your recent posts and have to agree that stupidity and sickies seem to be running neck in neck lately. If you did start a separate blog you would not run out of materials for sure.

Another good use for paper roll tubes is to attach to the crevice tool on a vacuum cleaner to get hard-to-reach lint from the dryer. Doesn't always work that well however.

It's cheaper to be destructive at Walmart.

Ben in Texas said...

There just ain't no cure for stupid!!

HermitJim said...

Hey Beatrice...
Sometimes I think that politicians, stupid people, and crooks are all that make up the news anymore! Oh, wait! That's all the same people, huh?

I really appreciate you coming by today!


Hey Phelan...
Guess that's what it is! How did this guy get past the folks at the door with a beer in his hand? Or did he pick up the beer at WalMart as well?

I'm thinking this little temper tantrum ain't gonna be cheap, even at Wal-Mart prices!

Thanks for coming by today!


Hey Ben...
Afraid you're right, buddy! No cure at all!

Glad you could drop in today, my friend!

No guns at Wal-Mart anymore. The dang place is trying to be "politically correct".

Mechanic in Illinois said...

He probably was watching the election results on tv and saw we didn't win back the senate and became depressed and started drinking and blamed the tv. Walmart can give him a job as a door greeter to pay them back. Thanks for the great info.

Hey Dizzy,
There are guns at the Lewiston, ID Wal-Mart.

Hey Dizzy...
Probably a good thing that they don't carry guns anymore! Lots of paper work to keep track of, and I don't think some of those workers could keep from having an accident!

BTW, I used to manage a Wal-mart sporting goods section years ago in east Texas...where we did sell guns and ammo! I know about all the paper work, believe me!

Thanks for coming by today!


Hey Mechanic...
With what they pay, that shouldn't take but about 50 or 60 years!

Thanks for coming by today!

HermitJim said...

Hey Andy...
Good to know! I thought that all of them gave it up, but maybe it's up to the store manager...

I do appreciate the visit today, buddy!

Still raining here, too, so let's stay in the kitchen. I think maybe the stupid germs can't get us if we're inside.

This reminds me of the idiot during the Katrina flooding who was returning a stolen TV to a store to steal another, because the first one didn't work. It never occurred to that genius that TVs need electricity!

HermitJim said...

Hey Marjie...
I'm glad to have the rain, but I could do without the wind that's coming with it!

I'm liking the cooler weather, though! Pretty bad when your Summer runs from Feb. to Nov.!

Thanks for coming over today!

I can't help but think that's kinda funny, since it happened in a Wal-Mart. :D
Like you say, couldn't happen to a more deserving store. ha! just too bad he didn't take out more.

HermitJim said...

Hey Annie...
Everything you need to do the rime in just one stop! Sure makes it handy for the destructive punks looking to tear something up!

Probably all out of shape or had too many beers to do much more!

Thanks, my friend, for coming over today!

"Several TVs causing over $2,000"???
Omg...here in this part of Oz, that would be ONE stinkin' tv - and a medium sized el cheapo one at that!

(Sorry I haven't been around much lately, but I have no life anymore...;)
