Target, the giant fucking big box store, told a teacher, who's students raise money and go buy stuff for a Crisis nursery, fer chrissakes, that they can't come and spend up to two thousand dollars without two weeks notice because of scheduling issues for the tellers, I shit. You. Not.
They can't handle twenty five extra customers all at once.
I have been in one and they are huge.
A snippet from the teachers recollection of her conversation with some complete fucking bitch at Target that she posted on Facebook,
"Well, you can't come in. The schedule is made and I just don't have the cashiers. I need at least two weeks' notice. Sorry," Shelly said, curtly.
"We usually spend over $2000... Would you prefer we head over to Wal-Mart?"
"Hold on." When Shelly returned to the phone, I was told, "Nope. Sorry. We can't accommodate you."
I told her, "It has never been a problem in the past, and we have never given two weeks' notice before."
"Well, actually, it has been a problem, ma'am, because we can't check other guests out when you're here." She replied, with a definite tone rising in her voice.
"So, we can't spend our money there on Friday?"
"Okaaayy...I suppose we will go somewhere else then. Thank you," and I hung up.
In her letter, the teacher explains that her students don't all rush into the store and go nutso on the shelves. Instead, they do their shopping in groups of four. They also show up at the store at the non-peak time of 8:45 a.m. and are usually done and gone by 11 a.m.
Additionally, the group has a purchase order charge account with Target so as to make the entire buying process easier.
My emphasis because that makes this so much more ridiculous it went off the chart, they aren't even using cash.
Fuuuck you Target, you just shit the bed in my opinion.
Talk about some bad PR, this went national.
I never liked 'em anyway, if you pay cash for something and want to return it, they won't give your money back, they make ya choke on a motherfucking gift card.
Another Fuck You in my book.
I have heard of some dumb shit but these kids have been doing this for five years now and they even got a heads up letter.
My question is ,
who in the fuck who has ever had an ounce of management experience couldn't accommodate these kids?
Ya lazy wench, get your lazy fucking ass behind the fucking cash register yer own self for fucks sake!
Some people just amaze me with their unwillingness to step up to the plate, ESPECIALLY, when it is for charity.
Being Christmas time, babies are involved and little kids have gone out of their way to help them?
Three strikes, you are out.
You can tell Target to kiss my fucking ass and I drive by one of those motherfuckers going and coming to work every fucking day and I can tell you something you can take to the bank, I will never darken their doorsteps again, as if I was going to anyway.
If you would like, you can drop a dime on 'em and tell them just how much you love what they do for the community.
