Shopping can always be a trial.
I find, for myself, that Target is far worse. At least our Target's are. I can never find what I need at a Target. Their clothes buyer is really terrible. I used to get nice things there, but no more! One day not too long ago I wanted a simple trash container for the bathroom. Not fancy, just easy to clean that would fit under a shelf. I had to go to FOUR departments...and never found one either! They also put the XMAS things way in the back corner every year, and for me walking the huge lot, then all the way to Outer Mongolia, for a couple of packs of Xmas tree lights, is just too much. At least at WalMart the Xmas and seasonal stuff is in the front corner.
Today I have to go to Target for some Dr. Scholl's inserts (since WalMart's had a spider in them, and I returned them, and I am afraid others there would have the spiders too). I've been wanting to go to Target for about 2 weeks, but today is the day. I think I will trap hubby to help me. Our Target is always busy, and the parking lot is horrible too. I'll try to get him to drop me off at the door and wait in the car-- near the pharmacy. I won't be long in there, for sure. I find the Target shoppers more snippy and pushy than the WalMart ones. Our WalMart is pretty civilized I guess?
The only thing I do like at Target, is the return desk...it is always friendly and well manned. But I don't use that very often.
I really do think the rural areas have more eccentric patrons.
When we shop in the Soo, it is much different than down here.
