places where I see the most obese people. I can't believe their sizes!
My youngest had a part time job in McDonald's when she was in high school. I have only been in a Walmart a few times in my life, but the place almost gave me an anxiety attack. I had to leave. The noise, the dirt, the sheer volume of STUFF was overwhelming to me. And I like cities! This was not the same.
We do have an obesity epidemic in this country. I am not making fun of it. But I think those two places are the places that people do not arrive at by walking!
I just passed the exam for my real estate sales license. During the coursework, there was the usual warning about discrimination. But - a warning never to use the words "walking distance." Our society has become so litigious, one can be sued for using this expression. "Shopping center nearby" or "Shopping center 1/4 mile away" is acceptable. I list a house a few doors away from a church on the corner? I'm not supposed to refer to it even as a landmark. "Take a right turn at St Mark's cathedral" is lawsuit city.
I thought the instructor was kidding when he went through this.
