    BLOOMINGDALE, Ill.

    Suburban Chicago officials say a Wal-Mart employee has died after setting himself on fire outside the store where he worked.

    Randy Sater is a watch commander with the Bloomingdale Police Department. He says 58-year-old Larry Graziano of Carol Stream used lighter fluid to set himself on fire late Thursday.

    Sater says Graziano told police he "couldn't take it anymore." Police say bystanders tried to help, but Graziano fought them off.

    The Cook County Medical Examiner's office says Graziano was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead about 1 a.m.

    Dan Fogleman is a spokesman for Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart. He says Graziano was a 7-year employee who worked nights stocking shelves. He says Graziano had no reported personnel issues.

    Yeah the people themselves at Wal Mart are not too terrible. It's the management , home office , and Market management that gives Wal Mart a bad name. While I might never set myself on fire... I have had thoughts of other things .. usually when that occurs is when I say F*ck it and go on vacation because thats how I know I am losing my mind over that place.

    I've been to that Wall-Mart. Creepy.

    Then again, I've felt the same way while working at a GameStop. I hate that store sooo much now.
