Walmart, unfortunately, tends to be the epicenter of bad shopper behavior. Look up any Karen-melting-down or brawl video, and there's a decent chance it happened under those iconic fluorescent lights.

It's not Walmart's fault; it's just that everyone and their dogs go there, even total butt-holes.

Texas is already under a face mask order, but to maintain consistency and limit confusion from guests, Walmart will begin a mandatory face mask policy for shoppers nationwide beginning on Monday, July 20th.

They'll even have employees dedicated to the cause, per WJHL:

Along with the new mask mandate, Walmart has created the new role of “Health Ambassador” — employees who will be stationed near store entrances to remind customers of the rule.

“The ambassadors, identifiable by their black polo shirts, will work with customers who show up at a store without a face covering to try and find a solution. We are currently considering different solutions for customers when this requirement takes effect on July 20.”

Of course, there are people who have real medical issues that cannot wear a face mask. Those folks will be handled on a case-by-case basis.(Editor's note: They won't just be carrying a fake face mask exemption card to prove it.)

I'm a severe asthmatic, but I still can wear one. And if you're medically fragile, I suggest you utilize Walmart's curbside pickup. They have it down to a science, and it's super easy and convenient to use.

Just a reminder: masks keep us from spitting disease particles on each other. If you don't wear a mask, I'm assuming you like to be spat upon. And that's something you really shouldn't be advertising about yourself at Walmart.
