Tampa woman tried to build explosive device inside Walmart, deputies say

(Thanks to James Flynn and Le Petomane, who says “Walmart really does have one stop shopping.”)

She couldn't find the aisle where the bomb timers were.

What makes the Sheriff think she had the competence to build a bomb and set it off? Because I'm guessing not.

Was she standing in line at the pharmacy? Because I could totally understand her actions if she was. About a month ago I saw a drug deal going down in our Walmart parking lot. It was around 10 p.m. and the only reason I was there was because my cat was completely out of food. I told the store manager about it and she told me it happens there all the time. I don't shop there anymore because I always feel like I'm going to have a stroke by the time I leave. I'll spend a little more elsewhere to save my sanity.

What a young woman looks like when she is told she has a parasitic worm that caused a calcified ball.

Walmart customer service person--
"Yes ma'am, the C4 explosives are in aisle 14, The detonators and timers are in aisle 13. Thank you for shopping Walmart and have a nice day."

TAMPA ⁠— A 37-year-old woman was arrested Saturday after deputies say she tried to build an explosive device inside a Walmart while she had a child with her.

I applaud the mom for doing a STEM field trip. Heck, Bill Nye shows kids how explosives work.

I built an explosive device in Cuco's Taqueria once.

Great old fashioned customer service. You can't get that 'hands-on' experience shopping online.
