In my private life, I’m — if possible — even more of a pain in the ass than I am online. Recently, I took the opportunity to test one of Wally World’s more boastful claims.

“Excuse me, you have a policy that you will match any local competitor’s pricing, correct?”

“Yes, sir, we do.”

“Well, you’re selling 16-ounce bottles of Coke for $1.38. Just outside your doors, you have a vending machine that sells the exact same thing for $1.25. Will you match that price?”

“Um… I’m going to have to check on that…”

(For the record, I went to the vending machine first, and it was out of my particular preferred Coke product.)

Update: I’m still waiting for that answer. Every time I go in, I ask the same lady if she’s found out about the pricing.

This ain’t the kind of question the average Wally Worlder is prepared to handle…
