Walmart doesn't invest in a whole lot of training in their hourly associates. I think it has to do with the high turnover rate.

Is that the Moroccan, Lebanese or Afghani hash?

And here I thought they were just being passive aggressive.

Well in the States, about better than 50% percent of none food related items I order online from either ebay or Amazon. On Island surprisingly not that much, I either load up and bring with me each time I come or I try and make do with what I have.

I ordered a small custom window from a company in South Carolina. I let them know about issues I’ve had getting fragile items shipped before. They did a great job packing it and the box looked better than any box I’ve ever picked up from the US Post Office before.
When I got it home, I decided to open it up on a large table, outside on the gallery. As soon as I lifted the first cardboard flap open, about a hundred thousand white styrofoam peanuts got swept up in the breeze and went flying everywhere.
I haven’t seen anyone use those things in years. They did the job though. The window was in perfect condition, however I spent the remainder of my day chasing styrofoam peanuts all over the neighborhood.

Perhaps they were the biodegradable type, not Styrofoam? Put some in water and see what happens.
