really?

Dear Target employee -

Thanks so much for giving me a 3 minute lecture about how my Progresso Light Zesty Santa Fe Style Chicken soup was "SooOoOooo not healthy". Thanks for taking one of the three cans I was purchasing, picking it up and reading me the nutritional information. It was totally necessary for you to comment on the sodium content and tell me to make sure to drink plenty of water. Perhaps I blacked out for a moment because I didn't even remember asking for your advice!

Phew, thanks for saving me from myself.

I wish the end of this story could have gone something like this:

HANDS DOWN MY FAVORITE PART OF THAT MOVIE!

Also, I hate when people at stores like that take it upon themselves to comment on your purchases or get deep into your life/ask personal questions. Just do your job, give me my things, and that's it. Unless I'm initiating the conversation, it's just...well, it's rude.

I think you should send a formal complaint to Target. Seriously. That is ridiculous. You should have asked her how she trained for HER marathon without getting enough salt & electrolytes?

monica - that chick is the best part of the entire movie. i love when she's all "i threw up in my purse so..." but yea, i didn't ASK for her thoughts on the soup. i wasn't like "oh hey, do you think this soup is nutritious?" it was unbelievably out of line.

dori - i think that i will complain. it's been hours and i still pretty agitated by it!

For what its worth I see know problem with talking about your experience on your blog or in any other aspect for that matter. Social media is a powerful thing and employees need to be more careful.

Oh my... I see NO problem... opps

thanks jana, i appreciate it. i shouldn't have made the snarky comment about the cigarette smoke/smell, but i do agree that social media is a powerful force to be reckoned with and i will be posting more about my experiences at that particular target if it continues.

I would have complained to the manager, cause I'm a bitch.
