My dearest Target,
I have such a love/hate relationship with your stores. While I wish some of your prices were lower, I do love a lot of your products. My hatred is mostly aimed toward the employees who work the floor. Or at least, that’s what they’re supposed to be doing. Maybe it just really sucks to work at Target and everybody hates their lives when they’re on the clock so they slink around hoping to avoid work all day, but I’m sure I speak for a lot of customers when I make the request that employees need to get off their duff and put the correct price stickers under all merchandise so customers don’t think they’re getting a deal when they aren’t.
I mean, yeah, thank you for the price scanners you put in a few places around the store, but the fact is I wouldn’t have to use those things if your employees would actually price an item when they shelve it, or if they put it in the correct place. Today I thought I found a really great journal for a really great price, but I checked the price and it turned out to be five times what the sticker said. The product name was the same but the UPC was different, I’ve learned to check for that but I shouldn’t freakin’ have to do that. I know customers sometimes plop things in the wrong place, but there were too many journals in that slot, it was obviously the fault of a lazy employee.
I’ve worked retail, I know it can suck and I know workers just have bad days and don’t want to do anything, but that seems to be a daily thing at every Target I’ve been to. Lazy people need to realize it’s not called “work” because it’s easy, and employers like yourselves need to pay better attention at who you’re throwing paychecks at.
In closing, PRICE YO SHIT, TARGET.
