Jeff Newton's Story

Some years ago I was working a 30 day test project in a Walmart in SC. I was spending about 8 hours per day 7 days per week. You can learn a ton about people among a variety of other things at Walmart. I thought I had seen just about everything there was to see when I noticed a gentlemen pushing a grocery cart to check out with only two items on board......A gallon of 2% private label milk and a truck tire. I stopped him and ask to take a picture and he graciously obliged. To this day I can think of nothing that more aptly demonstrates the Walmart experience than this photo. I have shared it with many a supply chain professional and always get the same response....a genuine laugh out loud moment!
