Sup Travellers?! Remember that Natalie Portman movie where Portman's character Novalee Nation lives for weeks in Walmart at the end of her pregnancy? What's that movie called again? Oh yeah, "Where The Heart Is."

Well one 14-year-old boy had somewhat of the same experience but the only difference was that it wasn't a million dollar Hollywood movie and he wasn't pregnant. Sucks for him.

According to reports from CBS News a teenager in Corsicana, Texas managed to live in a local Walmart for several days before he was eventually found and returned to his family by the police.

He reportedly lived off stolen goods and had set up up to two separate "campsites" in the store, one of which was hidden behind the stroller boxes in the baby aisle while the other was tucked away behind the paper towels and toilet paper.

"You would never expect that you're at Walmart there's someone living there and has been living there for four days. That's crazy," said Myrna Aguilar, a Walmart customer.

Customers who walked down the aisles where the teen was living never noticed two hidden compounds where the boy was able to store necessities, sleep in a makeshift bed and eat items taken from inside the store.

He created a crack in the back wall of the drink aisle to grab juice and even collected a fish from the pet department.

His exploits were so cunning but a trail of trash gave the boy away. Maybe if he had been a little more efficient in disposing of his garbage he would have still been living in the store today [LOL].

"I'm wondering what his parents think, and how come he didn't come home, and why aren't they worried about him," said customer Megan Nicholson.

Sources said the teen tried to run out of the store when he was discovered.

There's no indication Walmart plans to file criminal charges at this point.

As much as I know he's wrong I think it's only fair that I commend him for his craftiness. I mean --- the level of creativity and witty thinking that it takes to pull something like this off is crazy. The only thing that foiled his exploits was a trail of trash. That's genius!!!

He's still wrong though [serious face]. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
