Better Off at K-Mart

John Page, 41, was shopping for potted plants at a Walmart store in Rockledge, Fla., when he was bitten by a rattlesnake. Page says Walmart should do more to protect customers from such freak occurrences: his attorney found seven cases of snake bites at Walmarts nationwide over the past 20 years. “What I would like is to have Walmart acknowledge this is an ongoing travesty,” he said at a news conference called by his attorney. “When the floor is wet, they put up a cone [saying] that it’s slippery and to use caution,” he said. “But there are no signs trying to prevent this from happening again.” (RC/Orlando Sentinel) ...They tried that, but the darned snakes just ignored the signs.
