I have to love my Target. I stopped in today to get one last item for our trip. I TRIED to pick up more items, but I'm just shopped out. It wasn't happening.
So I got in line behind 2 other people who had about 20 items each. There weren't any '5 items or fewer' lanes so I used the time to site-see.
And just about dropped my jaw. Hanging over my cashier lane, in BIG RED LETTERS was
Not Happy Holidays.
Not Seasons Greetings.
And then the cashier, as she took my paltry $20.10 and gave me $3 change said,
and the really strange thing is that if you look at her,
she doesn't appear to be 'in the club.'
I think she even might have come from some Other Place
and might even practice some Other Religion
I was so startled that I wanted to hug her.
Instead, I smiled a huge smile back at her and said
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU TOO!
this may just be a brilliant marketing strategy by Target
but it worked.
After all, I'm telling you, right?
