A woman in Wichita Falls, Texas, has been banned from Walmart for riding around in an electric cart while drinking wine from a Pringles container, and people are mad – mad that we didn’t think of it first.
Wine in a Pringles container? Genius!
While some might call this a nuisance, most of us would call this living her best life.
It sounds like a blast to me.
Police responded to a call around 9 am that the woman had been riding around the parking lot since about 6:30 that morning. (Though no witnesses have said so, I can only hope she was also yelling, “Yippee ki-yay, motherfucker!”)
They found the Easy Rider at a nearby restaurant and informed her she was no longer invited to “Save money, live better” at the store.
The story has sparked quite a reaction. I can’t help but wonder:
“Where can I get Pringles at this hour?”
“How long does the battery on an electric cart last? Asking for a friend.”
“Does Salt and Vinegar pair better with white or red?” are just some questions currently buzzing around in my head.
The reactions on Twitter prove others are equally as puzzled:
“Where’s the crime?” asked author, Goldie Taylor on Twitter.

The woman’s name hasn’t been released, but plenty of people have stepped forward to claim credit. Because face it, we all want to be her just a tiny bit.
Writer Ashley C. Ford took to Twitter to defend herself. “Once again I’m being attacked for presenting new ideas.”

Twitter user @DavinNunesMom also claimed the idea as her own sparking the question, “Since when is innovation a crime?”

Still others have pointed out the positives of the situation. “At least she’s recycling,” said ABC Action News.

Of course, drinking and driving is always a bad idea.
Drinking and electric cart riding probably is too. But it’s hard not to live vicariously through this woman’s chip-laden joy ride.
And we have to admit, we’re all a little jealous.
