Becoming the Bullseye


targetHave you ever been mistaken for an employee at Target? I’m not quite sure how to take it. Is it because I have that sharp, sophisticated look about myself? Do I look incredibly helpful? Or, completely useless? Or, could it be the fact that I was just stupid enough to wear a red shirt and then take my fat butt shopping at Target?! But, wouldn’t I have a nametag on? And, why would I be comparing prices in the electronics section? The funny thing is, even after the person realizes I don’t work there, they still ask for my help. And, I give it to them.

It’s too bad there isn’t anywhere to shop that someone would give a shit about you. Customer service is nothing but a fading memory. I completely understand though. I wouldn’t be happy either if I spent all day dealing with people’s crap, looking like the fricken Kool-Aid man and dealing with a Spuds MacKenzie knockoff for a mascot. Then, still not being able to afford to put food on the table at the end of the day. Have you ever considered how much of our lives we spend working at a job we can’t stand? Don’t, it is quite depressing. For those of you lucky enough to be doing something you enjoy, don’t quit your day job!
