Ah, the irony.
We’re in the middle of a recession, and yet Target appears to have shipped in a surplus of energetic, red-shirted, temporary staff members to keep the shelves overstocked with items that no one truly needs (but my God, that spinning cabinet organizer sure would take the hassle out of looking for a can of tomato soup!).
Even more ironic is the surplus of collection boxes for used clothing, shoes and housewares in Target’s parking lot, facing the superstore like weary soldiers from The Salvation Army and other non-profits.
On one end of the parking lot is a frequently-renovated and even more frequently visited place for everyday items.
On the other end of the parking lot is a row of rusted metal boxes holding discarded everyday items.
If only those boxes had as many visitors as Target does…
