Small Town America - A Mystery

I stopped by Walmart yesterday to pick up a few sewing supplies. I usually park near one of the shopping cart corrals, because it helps me to remember where my car is and there are less big SUVs parked beside me which make it hard to back out.

It wasn't there when I went in, but when I came out this Army dress uniform, hung neatly on a hanger, was hanging on the shopping cart corral. I don't know where it came from or why it was there.

Some ideas might be:

1. Someone hung it there because they went AWOL
2. Someone hung it there while they were putting something in their car and forgot to put it back.
3. Someone stole it and put it there to get rid of it.
4. They hung it there while they went inside to buy socks.
5. They left it there for someone else to pick up, but couldn't wait.
6. Someone just wanted to get rid of it.
7. It was a rainy day, so maybe they just hung it there to dry!

I just don't know! What do you think?

How strange... I wonder if it was ever picked up or is still there?

I'm going with # 2 and 3. Can you imagine having it ready to go and then leaving it there? Talk about panic. I hope whoever it belongs to gets it back.

Have you been back to Walmart this morning to see if it is still there? I go with #2.

I know you are happy to have your hubby back at the farmhouse!!

Hi Debbie,
i agree Most likely # 2. When we took Candi to the groomers over the week end we parked next to a car that had a cup of coffee on top of it. Have a fun day.

who knows? I do hope if it was lost, that the right Soldier got it back.

I always park by a corral too if I know I will coming out with a shopping cart- just easier to be close to put away the cart after shopping and loading the car.
