24. Can I confess with you?
It's not a real "snob factor" with me.

The real reason I didn't go to Wally World before I knew how horrid they are is because they are on all the outskirts of the city in which I live. I live and work INSIDE the city limits and, frankly, don't like to shop in the first place (I missed that part of estrogen, I guess, in my female make-up) and will NOT drive any further than I need to to shop. Wal-Mart is five minutes too far away.

And, it's scummy-looking too. Like the K-Mart used to be before they upgraded it. I'm a Target gal, myself.
