Ya know I had a better post for today, so I am falling back on the post that came to me earlier. I hate Target. I had to get some stuff and so I went in there and I feel like I go in there every week for something. The crowds were backed up at the front of the store and people were just milling about or something, I don't know, but as soon as I got away from the front it wasn't so bad. I really wanted to get a waffle iron as I wanted to make waffle tomorrow, but they only had square waffle irons and one Belgian waffle maker and I didn't want square waffles or Belgian waffles, I just wanted regular round waffles. Yes, I know this is being petty and stupid, but sometimes I just want something specific and will not settle for anything else. I think this trait also gets me in trouble in my lack of a dating life as I have standards that are too high, like she is smart, funny and liberal. I know this is much to ask for, but they do exist, look at the people on my blogroll, many of them are women and all of them are funny, smart and liberal. Anyway, back to target, what is with the red shirts, isn't red supposed to be a color of anger or passion and yet these people look like they are doing me a favor by acknowledging my presence and checking out my purchases.
Finally, and the big reason I hate Target is that I feel like I am in someway selling myself out. I do not shop at Walmart as I detest Walmart and will not step foot in there. But Target is another chain that is ruining small businesses. They are these giant mega stores that take business away from the small business and they build on land that could be used for parks or small farms or something better than a fucking megamart. But after running around all day having to return my digital cable box because yes I did it, I got rid of my cable. I went to one place and found out that they cannot take returns of cable boxes only exchanges, which makes no sense to me but anyway, I had to run home and get directions to the main office for the cable company and then wait in line for twenty minutes. I also went to the farmers market, yeah farmers market and I still had to go to the regular grocery store after Target. I went to Target and it was packed and I was in no mood to deal with a packed store which I knew it would be, but still I hate Target. But I go to Target because I can get everything I need like todays trip, paper towels, composite cable, shampoo and I was hoping a waffle iron. On the positive side I did get Regina Specktor thanks to Dr. Monkey's week of Spektor turned me on to her.
So basically you just got my day in a nutshell and all I wanted to say was I hate Target, oh well I guess they are better than Wal-Mart or at least I hope they are or I am truly SOL.
