I've been swooped..

There I was standing in the plastic storage bin aisle of Target, minding my own business, when I was swooped. I was trying to decide which under-the-bed storage bin to purchase when I noticed the exact same ones I already have at home. Perfect! they will match. So I pick one up to verify dimensons.

All of a sudden this woman rushes down the aisle with her son tagging along. She bends down to look at the lids and says to her son "Yep Johnny* , these are the right ones". In one swift move she swoops down and grabs ALL of the lids on the shelf and took off. Not a single lid, speck of dust, chipped piece of plastic was left. Seriously??? Who does that? Clearly I was looking at the same storage bin that she was! What good is a storage bin without a lid? I was super annoyed at this point. I checked all of the other lids and not one of them was the right size. Thankfully someone that worked there was close by and they were able to find a lid for me. People never cease to amaze me.

In a place like Target it is hard to stay annoyed or angry. There's always some type of shiny object to distract you from the storage lid snatchers. Oh please, oh please, oh please, people of Ramona.... vote to have Target come to town! Think how many jobs a shopping center woud provide for the community. Plus if people are already out and about shopping in town they are likely to cruise main street, grab lunch, maybe buy some stuff from the locals. Oh a girl can dream. I'm trying not to get my hopes up about it. Heck.. who am I fooling? they are already up!

I was hoping more for the Walmart. I like cheap diapers and kids clothes. >.>

So what you should of done was plan B: Run after that annoying bitch, pull her hair, slap her across the face, pick up the bins after she dropped them, stick your tongue out at Johnny, turn around, proceed to checkout...Done..Happy.Thankful.yogist

The nerve! That has never happened to me, but do you ever run into a store for one thing while you're short on time, only to find out there is someone standing right up against what you need taking their sweet time with their full cart and 4 kids?

I was swooped buying my turkey! I was standing there totally in front of them, looking for the biggest one and talking to my mom on the phone. Another lady walked up right as I was saying to my mom, "I'm trying to find the biggest one." She proceeded to move all the turkeys until she found the heaviest one. She even made a comment to me, "Are you trying to find a big turkey?" Um. Yeah, lady. BACK OFF. But I didn't say that, I just stood there in shock.
