Target Hates Me....
I swore I would never do this. I can't believe I do it now. I am red faced, ashamed.
My confession...I literally destroyed Target today.
Back over 100 years ago (or so it feels) pre-kids I used to work retail. A few small, super trendy (expensive) little Newport Beach Boutiques. Fancy Schmancy huh? Not really. Moms with strollers make a mess. A disgusting, horrible, "What is the Matter with you?", mess. Crackers all over the floor, clothes pulled down, clothing piled inside out on the floor of the dressing room, dirty diapers in the corner (yes, it happened to me), sticky finger smears everywhere, and much, much more.
I would exclaim: "What is the MATTER with these people?", "This is DISGUSTING!" , and my favorite..."I would NEVER do something like that."
Fast forward to present day. In Target. Destroyed. By me.
It all begain innocently enough. Got the twins popcorn, peanut butter sandwich, and juice. Figure all that food will buy me some time to shop. Within 8 minutes the peanut butter is smeared everywhere, juice is dripping from the cart, and we have left a popcorn trail that would make Hansel and Gretel jealous.
I have no option but to start stashing dirty napkins, wrappers, and peanut butter smeared merchandise all over their shelves. My little girl sat on the remainder of her sandwich so I attempted to "cram" it in the corner of the isle. The twins are whining...I am panicking that the security cameras are picking all this up....the stress was enormous. I was a criminal. I was "THAT" person. That person I swore I would never be..... :(
What is your messiest story?
