Using touchless pickup at Walmart with mixed results. Unexpected comments provide food for thought.

Welcome to the What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast, Season 6 Episode 23, “I Admire You.”

In "I Admire You", I went to Walmart again. Which means that I like it, maybe. People made unexpected comments to me this week, so I dealt with those as best I could. Hoppin Hot Sauce is back in business. At the Royal Shakespeare Company, disabled actor is playing Richard III, a first. It's a disabled role often played by someone acting disabled.

I went to Walmart again, this time for white t shirts

I was leaving the liquor store Some guy wearing An American Flag bandana And a white goatee asked me if I needed help. I said I was ok and thanked him. It made me question if I should go out alone

Journey to Walmart again

I went to Walmart again and this time I ordered pickup

Before getting in the car I grabbed my trekking pole & 40th birthday cowboy hat

When I got to Walmart I Drove around the whole parking lot 3 times trying to find the pickup spot.

In the end I couldn't find it, so I went inside

The greeter tried to get me to go to the other side of the store

She could see I was not into that

She told me I could use the app to tell them I was here, but she didn't know how to do that or what it was called and Neither did I

She said that I could park my car near the garden area

Turning Around to get out of there I moved unsteadily and the greeter reached out to steady me

I used my trekking pole

I went back to my car.

When I was getting in my car a woman in the parking lot said "I admire you. You're out here, and you're doing your thing"

Then I drove my car to the Garden area and parked on the curb

There was a sign to call a phone number if you were here to pick up.

I called and no one answered

People with blue vests were walking around my car.

I told one of them that I had called and he said that no one answered because he was the only one working.

He said that he would help me. He went off and came back in a few minutes with the shirts

I don't know why I keep going to the Davis street Walmart

It was nice to be admired
