A 70-year-old stayed for three days in a Wal-Mart at Gwinnett County, Georgia. She ate and slept in the store and she was only noticed after 72 hours. LOL! "Despite what most people think about such and experience, it is likely that because of all the shoppers, the woman was able to blend in with the carts, crowds and chaos and go unnoticed for 72 hours a week before Christmas. When asked by Wal-Mart employees why she was there for so long she simply said, 'I'm shopping.'" What do you think of her? Isn't she funny or what? Could it be a hard habit to break?

This is a very funny news. I wonder how large Wal-Mart is. Is it open 24 hours?

I read this article also. For some reason, despite the fact the police escorted her home, I wondered if she was homeless at first and just stayed there to be warm. Very odd story.
