HBO — to Family Phil re: Wal*Mart

Family Phil: Sitting in Dannen’s Deli in Hayden today, I heard some people talking about the Wal-Mart planned for the corner of 95 and Honeysuckle. The gist of their conversation was: “Hayden is too nice a town for the class of people who shop at Wal-Mart.”

DFO: The elitism involved in dissing Wal*Mart bugs me, more than anything else. Some folks simply couldn’t make it, if they had to but exclusively at the main supermarkets. I hate when folks look down on one another, simply because they had a rich Daddy. Or married a rich Daddy or Mommy. Or combined have a good income. You’re well off? Big deal. None of us takes it with us. I’m glad I didn’t overhear that conversation, Phil.
