Walmart wants Mr. and Mrs. Galt as customers

Have you ever been to a place where you thought you were going shopping but wound up instead as the target of the in-store security police? That wouldn't happen to you if you were Mr or Mrs Galt. The Galt's, as you know, are unlimited in their potential and their funding. Here is how Mrs. Galt shops for groceries at the Galt's Gulch Walmart:
Notice the full basket. Notice the lack of other customers in the store. (Nobody else can afford to live in Galt's gulch) Notice our ostensible Mrs Galt's nonchalant attitude toward spending money, which she has available abundantly. She has no need to worry. The world revolves around her. The speed with which she throws items into the cart is astounding. All this because she shops by feel instead of by thought. If you have to stand in front of an item for more than 30 seconds and think about how it fits your plans, how it puts a dent into your budget, then you just might be a thief. That's what store security training teaches the store security staff. Pick on those of lesser wealth. Greatness entails the privilege of being left alone. If you have to think about it, you can't afford it - so your comfort doesn't matter.
