Thanksgiving Fail!


For delivering everything ordered except the turkey and the pan!

DC USA Target--FAIL!

For posting signs in the organizational storage bin aisle teasing "If you can't find a lid for the bin you want just ask!"

I asked a red-shirted clerk for help finding a lid and she displayed a Miss Cleo clairvoyance by knowing exactly the bin I desired without bothering to ask and told me that there were no additional lids in the back.

Herb of DC: "So why does the sign say to ask?"

Miss Cleo Target: "I don't know."

DC USA Target--FAIL!

For having a red Customer Service phone near the storage bin aisle that requests that you press 1 to speak to a Customer Service agent or press 2 to have an associate meet you at that station to assist you. The 1 and 2 buttons on the phone do not work.

Herb of DC--FAIL!

For finding the nearest working red Customer Service phone and pressing 2 to have an associate meet me at that station to assist me with finding the lid for a large storage bin, not realizing that the ringing bell and flashing light would summon a less than pleased Miss Cleo Target. An elaborate pantomime ensued of "Oh does this red phone contact Target, I thought I was calling Russia or something?" before slinking off to hide in housewares.

Fried Turkey--FAIL!

Thanksgiving Cakes--FAIL (From Cake Wrecks)

Thanksgiving Sweater--FAIL!

Green Bean Casserole--WIN!!!

It's been a year since I've been to Tarjoy. I KNOW. It's a miracle that my soul is still sorta functioning. But your post? Made me miss it a little less...

Oh, I LOVE green been casserole. It was the only thing missing from my T-Day this year... might just have to have a do-over next weekend and make some!
