Sometimes, you need to expose yourself to something retarded in order to keep your mind sharp.
Here is one such thing.
A 14-year-old boy, with a history of running away to abandoned properties, decided to live inside a Texas Walmart instead of staying with some relatives.
Employees at the store in Corsicana were shocked to discover the child in their store on July 30, police said in a statement issued Wednesday.
He was discovered 54 hours after he ran away from home. He built secret makeshift lairs behind rolls of toilet paper, constantly changed his clothes and wore diapers to avoid being seen running to the bathroom, reports TV Station CBS 11 in Dallas and Fort Worth.
Walmart spokesman Brian Nick told the Daily News they are investigating the situation and are not sure exactly how long the boy was in the building. He said as soon as the manager discovered the child they contacted authorities and were concerned for his safety.
“This is a sad situation,” he said.
