I cannot help you with the discounted swimsuits

Nor can I help you find greeting cards, a toaster, baby food, an ironing board, the plus size lingerie, a flat screen TV, or a bean bag chair. I cannot even help you find the coffee filters, but I assume it will be near the coffee. It will do no good to complain to me that the meager food court is out of funnel cake or that the photo department has lost your prints. You must summon the strength to overcome these problems on your own, for I'm afraid that I am merely one of you--only without the cell phone and string of children adorned in Dale Earnhardt memorabilia running like savages behind me. Godspeed you in your quest, but here is where we must part.
Note to self: From now on always check to make sure that you are not wearing a red polo shirt before going into Target.
Also, you should probably stop wearing that damnable name tag. It made you appear more friendly and sociable at first, but the little bastard has attracted too much of the riff-raff that made you unsociable in the first place.

Words to live by. Also, don't wear a stethescope in a hospital, lest you be asked to operate.

OMG, I miss Target. I miss one-stop shopping.

But I do make it a habit never to wear blue and yellow to Ikea.

I often opt for a diaper and a tube top. Folks tend to give you a little space that way.

Let me know how that works for you.

HOld up - Chez Target serves funnel cake?

As if I needed another reason to go to target.

A couple of decades ago, my wife and I lived in Washington, D.C. and drove (ugh) a Dodge Aspen station wagon. Unfortunately, at the time, every taxi in Washington was also a Dodge Aspen station wagon. Everywhere we drove, people tried to hail us.

I suppose everyone has a cautionary tale about the need to coordinate your attire or transportation so that you do not blend in with the help (everyone but Ryan, that is. I think I've seen you on Murfreesboro Road before).
