The Frustrations From Shopping At High Class Discount Stores…
Posted by erinHasThoughts
I’m going to keep this short, mostly because even thinking about this infuriates me, but also because I don’t have much time. So yesterday I rushed over to target to get this really cute dress in between when I left work and when I had to be at track practice. I thought it would be totally fine time wise. Of course after I got the dress I realized it was only appropriate to buy shoes to wear with it…so I did that, I was at Target after all…isn’t it a crime to leave there with only one item? I still had AMPLE time to check out and get to practice early…or so I thought. I went to the front of the store and there is only 3 checkout aisles open. Now, normally at 4PM on a Wednesday that should be fine, but this Wednesday, for god know what reason there is over 20 people in each line. No joke. So anyways, I go to the 10 items or less lane, which was definitely a mistake because EVERY time I go into the 10 items or less lane my head almost blows up. One of my BIGGEST pet peeves is when people go into the 10 items or less lane and they CLEARLY have more than 10 items. The two customers, not just one, but two customers in line in front of me each have a heaping cart. ARE YOU SERIOUS?! Do you not see the sign that says “10 items or less?” Do you think that no one will notices? Well I did notice, and I was about half a second away from telling them they needed to reevaluate what they are doing here but they opened a 4th checkout aisle so I quickly got distracted running to that lane (hey I was in a time crunch, don’t judge me!).
Now one would think this is a good move on my part…WRONG. There is one person in front of me in the lane, so I’m thinkin easy-peasy, checkout her stuff and then it’s me. NOPE! She has 2 little boys with her that are INSISTING on scanning all the items and of course, the cashier, who was a boy that looked to be about 17 years old, was going along with it. Really? come on, who in the world lets their kids do this! And besides, I don’t have freakin’ time for this! So anyways, they finally scan about every school supply in the whole damn store and then out of nowhere the woman whips out a stack of coupons about 3 inches thick. No kidding! You can’t make this stuff up. Now, I’m just basically waiting for the “Extreme Couponing” Camera Crew to come out of the wood works. Finally, after what seemed like decades, I was able to check out.
Sheesh! The one time I can get in and out of Target under $30 this happens to me! Go figure! Oh, and if you were wondering about the 10 item or less line…yep both people with the heaping carts got out of the store before me…just my luck!
About erinHasThoughtsI just started eHT in January of 2011, and I'm shocked and humbled that people read it! For some reason it seems like I am always in the most ridiculous situations and witness things only seen in movies, so I like to share my experiences with all of you. Thanks for reading! xo
