Target is comatose to me

The one at San Felipe and 610, anyways. Not dead to me, because let's face it- I will be back, but they are on alert. I am cheap and we buy all the baby stuff there. They were completely out of Target Diapers in 4's (boxes, jumbo, maxi jumbo) except one little package all by its lonesome. I made them check the back and then I asked if they do anything to discount the others when they run out, of course they said no. So now I will still have to hit 290 because they were out of 4's in Luvs too and the Pampers and Huggies are too expensive to bother with ($7 more a pack and I needed two -screw them and their tactic to make more money- I will spend that money on gas just to show them and go to another). Finally a, "mmm, sorry" mumbled as Minimum Wage Mary ran off.

Then I did a social experiment with the cashier where I didn't speak to her until she spoke to me. She was quite animated with her pal, Casey Cashier, until I rolled up at least. At the end of the order she finally spoke asked "You want a Target Visa?" and I had to fight not to say,"No Shaquanda, despite your excellent selling techniques and wonderful demeanor, I will have to pass on that well sold offer." No thank you, but I did get a mumbled "Have a nice day." You too, Shaquanda, you too.

rofl! OMG I do the same thing at Target- waiting for them to speak to me. I really like staring at them just enough to make them uncomfortable.
Now that you're no longer working the sales, you're going to become super aware of all the terrible sales tactics surrounding you- lmao.

I do the exact same things with people sometimes. Sometimes it makes for a nice quiet checkout experience.
