My reaction: OMG...are you serious?
SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) - Attention Wal-Mart shoppers, wedding in
lawn and garden. Employees Chet Eldridge and Danna Hornback tied
the knot Thursday amid the retailer's flowers, shrubs and lawn chairs.
Eldridge, 51, an automotive manager, and Hornback, 45, an arts and
crafts associate, met during the store's employee orientation. She agreed
to their first date in the furniture section. After the couple became engaged,
a manager suggested they exchange vows at the store.
"We met here; he asked me out here. Why not?" Hornback said.
The only unexpected turn occurred when the familiar
"Attention Wal-Mart shoppers" announcement over the public
address system broke into the ceremony.
After the couple was pronounced husband and wife, the cheers
could be heard in customer service on the other side of the store.
Springfield is about 40 miles west of Columbus.
