    I received this e-mail from a friend of mine. Turns out this event actually occured in our very own Target?! Thought that this was hilarious. This is one bored guy who likes to play practical jokes in Target. Read on....

    After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Target. Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women - she loves to browse.



    Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from the local Target.



    Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and  have been forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against your husband, Mr. Samsel, are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras.



    1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people's carts when they weren't looking.



    2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals



    3. July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women's restroom.



    4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, 'Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away! This caused the employee to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor that in turn resulted with a union grievance, causing management to lose time and costing the company money.



    5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&Ms on layaway.



    6. August 14: Moved a 'CAUTION- WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area.



    7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the children shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department to which twenty children obliged.



    8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, 'Why can't you people just leave me alone?' EMTs were called.



    9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.



    10. September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.



    11. October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while loudly humming the 'Mission Impossible' theme.



    12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his 'Madonna look' by using different sizes of 20 funnels.



    13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled 'PICK ME! PICK ME!'



    14. October 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed 'OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!'



    And last, but not least:



    15. October 23:  Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, then yelled very loudly, 'Hey! There's no toilet paper in here.' One of

    the clerks passed out.

    This is too funny, May!  Now I'm jealous that I didn't come up with these ideas!  I love getting kicked out of retail venues.  It pokes fun of the seriousness of business and spices up what is normally mundane!

    mayhmongposted 9 years ago

    imadork, sorry to hear that!

      SweetiePieposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      My sister is a holiday shopaholic and thinks I am cheap to only make people cards.  The way I see it people already have lots of material possessions they end up getting rid of anyway, so why add more to the pile?  When I made her handmade cards she was highly disappointed smile.

          The best way to end a womans shopping spree is to say everything she tries on makes her look fat. I wouldn't do it because my wife hits but I've heard it works.

            SweetiePieposted 9 years agoin reply to this

            My sister likes to buy people expensive gifts around the holidays, when she knows others are not going to do the same for her.  Once she bought a hundred and fifty dollar Irish storm lamp for my sister, and they bought her a bath soaps kit in return.  I know she enjoys being generous around the holidays, but then she always gets her feelings hurt because they cannot afford to do the same for her.  People with kids are going to focus on Christmas for them first smile.

    I wish I can goof off in Wal-mart, since I have to be here nearly 70 hours a week. Too bad I sort of work right in it. So I better not even try!
