Apparently, there is a game an activity called The Wal-Mart Game Activity. You can buy only 3 items. Your goal is for your purchase to freak the cashier out as much as possible. What do you buy?

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

Condoms, condoms, and condoms. In each case, the largest pack you can find.

-or-

Condoms, pregnancy test, single coat hanger.

(ok, even I felt bad typing that! modest devil )

At most stores, a cashier becomes oblivious to what people purchase and so I'm not sure what would freak them out because they'd not think about it or even notice in most cases. Still, I'll play:

case of a dozen empty glass bottles about the size and shape of an old 8 oz Coke bottle,
package of a dozen cloth rags and
bottle of 100 oz of fire propellant like people put on BBQ grills in the charcoal.

Just ask if they sell lighters but don't buy.

EDIT:
If that's not 3 items in the sense the game means, just scale it down from a dozen.

First, I pick a cashier as I go in, and note exactly what she's wearing...

Then my three items are:

- shoes (just like hers)
- pants (just like hers)
- lip-stick (just like hers)

heheheh

Having been a cashier in a big-box retailer at one point, I can say that yes, some things would make the cashier take notice, but good luck getting the average cashier to put two and two together and think about what you'll be doing with the combined contents of your order.

I wasn't involved in the following, I just think it's pretty awesome.

- - - - -

Quote:
I got bored tonight, so I played the wal mart game, you know where you go to wal mart and see who can get the funniest items together
well I give my friends ryan and taylor $20 and they go off, taylor gets KY Jelly, Camoflauge shorts and Predator on DVD, I get some G2 Pilot pens, A mountain dew, Murray's Superior Afroshine Hair Pomade, 12-pack of Lubed Trojans, a pair of Brinks Luggage Locks with keys, Electrical Tape, and some Reeses Peanut Butter Cups (standard double-cup pack).
Ryan comes back empty handed and this follows,
Ryan: "I played your game dude..."
Taylor: "then where is your stuff?"
Me: "Yeah, you had to buy something with that 20 I gave you.."
Ryan "I went to automotive and put a tire on layaway..."
I never laughed so hard in my entire life, I gave him the 10 bucks for winning and walked to the car with my bag of crap.

I've actually done this in real life. We were running late for a Christmas party and needed to bring a white-elephant gift of value under $20.00. We stopped at walmart. I bought a tube of KY, a pair of women's panties that said "Lover" on them in red letters, and a Justin Bieber photo book. Add contents to gift bag and I had a winning white elephant gift. The cashier didn't even flinch though. I think she was one of those walking dead who completes her 10 hour shift in brain death mode.

I think I've posted this before, but I once bought Kool-Whip, condoms, and a birthday card in one trip (not all for the same purpose, mind you). I did get a funny look from the cashier.

I don't know if it's truly lye, but borax (Sodium Tetraborate) came up in a search for "lye"

Lye is sodium hydroxide (NaOH). It's a very, very strong base, and at 0.4M (a relatively weak solution) will peel layers of your skin off your hands if your glove gets a hole in it. Just sayin'.

You are correct! (It may have been a cane, but I think he had an umbrella in some scenes - faulty memory).
