Because I love you.

It's time for my annual holiday public service announcement:

If you have to go to Target for any reason during the next five weeks, DO NOT under ANY circumstance wear a red shirt.

You're welcome.

P.S. I'm back home with regular internet access and no NaNoWriMo restrictions so I'll be prowling your blogs with abandon and fistfuls of snark.

*snicker* thanks for the reminder.

That's really funny. Earlier today as I was standing outside Office Max to puruse their desks on sale, I saw three random strangers all wearing red. So I asked them, "Ummm, do you get a special discount today if you wear red?" They said no but they smiled. It's the stupid comments that make people's holidays special. ;-)

Kimberly said...

I've done that, but I just play along because I'm a know-it-all and totally love to be asked questions.

Happy Mom said...

LOL!!!

Kazzy said...

LOL! Or a name tag, I am guessin'.

Lara said...

This could very well be the best piece of holiday advice EVER given. :)

wonder woman said...

Noted.

Gracias.

So if you are a bah humbug, I think it would be really funny to wear a red shirt and just give people false information and see the whole store in utter chaos! I am taking my family to Target for FHE and we are going to wear red shirts.

And if you go to Walmart, don't look like you rolled out of the strip club. Believe me.

Debbie said...

I have done that before. Fortunately, I know where everything is so I'm fairly helpful:)

Becca said...

Me and Debbie = twins. I'm always in a red shirt at Target. (I just pronounced that with a French accent, did you notice?) And I know where everything is. So I'm tres helpful for all the shoppers. Also... welcome home.

Angie Muresan said...

Hahaha! Thanks for the reminder, particularly as I inevitably am in a hurry and cannot suffer bumbling questions from people who aren't even sure what it is they want.

Why not?

(hey, I'm 12, gimme a break)

Terresa said...

This is a riot! I went on Saturday, scooting under the radar wearing a zebra print shirt.

Love Target with every inch of my plastic credit card money!!

MommyJ said...

Heh... If I HAD a target, I would totally take your advice. Sad, I know. To not live within reasonable driving distance of a Target. Sigh.

Chris said...

My husband loves to visit Target wearing a red polo shirt and khaki pants. I pretend not to know him. :) lol

April said...

{changing shirt} Thanks!

Aubrey said...

(picturing an amusing scene in your next novel...)

DeNae said...

Fer sher. And I love Kristina's wisdom. I usually just wear a scowl. And, you know, some clothes and stuff.

Which means I'm safe when I shop, but at risk of being asked for help at the DMV.

Fortunately, no one really expects any help at the DMV, so I'm still ok.

I JUST WISH I HAD A TARGET TO GO TO. None here in this neck of the woods.

boo hoo I miss my Target!!!!!!!!

Emily said...

Been there. Done that. Thanks for the heads up!

Erin said...

I have done that so many times it's ridiculous. Now that I don't have a Target in the near vicinity, I just sit around in my red shirts and feel sorry for myself.

Eowyn said...

Lol. I read it twice and laughed both times!

Amber Lynae said...

I'm with Wendy I don't have a close Target anymore. I miss it a little more than I thought I would.

But this is funny. I think that would be quite a fun thing to have to tell everyone. "I don't work here I just am wearing red."
