There is something special about going to Target.

It's that magical place where you kind of blackout, forget about the outside world around you, and a 10-minute trip turns into a three-hour binge-shopping episode. Although your wallet may not like Target as much as you do, you can't help but be drawn back to those red and white circles.

Here are 30 thoughts you have while shopping at Target:

1. Ok, I just need to get one or two things

2. I'll be in and out in 10 minutes MAX

3. OOOooo I gotta check the dollar section briefly

4. Look at how cute this candle is

5. And here's some stationary that matches the candle

6. I NEED IT

7. OK, OK-- focus

8. What was I in here for again?

9. I see they got new bathing suits in

10. I desperately need a new one so I might as well look

11. That's a cute dress

12. Ya know what would look good with this dress?

13. **Wheels cart to shoe section**

14. I wonder if they have these in my size

15. They have my size, it's fate for me to get them

16. Okay, now to groceries

17. I really shouldn't grocery shop when I'm hungry

18. Do I need this family size bag of chips for just me?

19. It's been a long week

20. **Puts chips in cart**

21. Alright, almost done

22. Wait, I need some makeup

23. They seriously don't have the one color that I use for eyeliner

24. I'm never shopping here again

25. **chuckles**

26. Oh wow this pillow would go perfectly in my apartment

27. And I absolutely NEED this decorative rock paperweight

28. Why do they only have two registers open???

29. Wow, I was only in there for 2 hours! Better than what I was expecting

30. Man, I love Target

​An Open Letter To The People Who Don’t Tip Their Servers

This one's for you.

Dear Person Who Has No Idea How Much The 0 In The “Tip:" Line Matters,

I want to by asking you a simple question: Why?

Is it because you can't afford it? Is it because you are blind to the fact that the tip you leave is how the waiter/waitress serving you is making their living? Is it because you're just lazy and you “don't feel like it"?

Is it because you think that, while taking care of not only your table but at least three to five others, they took too long bringing you that side of ranch dressing? Or is it just because you're unaware that as a server these people make $2.85 an hour plus TIPS?

The average waiter/waitress is only supposed to be paid $2.13 an hour plus tips according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

That then leaves the waiter/waitress with a paycheck with the numbers **$0.00** and the words “Not a real paycheck." stamped on it. Therefore these men and women completely rely on the tips they make during the week to pay their bills.

So, with that being said, I have a few words for those of you who are ignorant enough to leave without leaving a few dollars in the “tip:" line.

Imagine if you go to work, the night starts off slow, then almost like a bomb went off the entire workplace is chaotic and you can't seem to find a minute to stop and breathe, let alone think about what to do next.

Imagine that you are helping a total of six different groups of people at one time, with each group containing two to 10 people.

Imagine that you are working your ass off to make sure that these customers have the best experience possible. Then you cash them out, you hand them a pen and a receipt, say “Thank you so much! It was a pleasure serving you, have a great day!"

Imagine you walk away to attempt to start one of the 17 other things you need to complete, watch as the group you just thanked leaves, and maybe even wave goodbye.

Imagine you are cleaning up the mess that they have so kindly left behind, you look down at the receipt and realize there's a sad face on the tip line of a $24.83 bill.

Imagine how devastated you feel knowing that you helped these people as much as you could just to have them throw water on the fire you need to complete the night.

Now, realize that whenever you decide not to tip your waitress, this is nine out of 10 times what they go through. I cannot stress enough how important it is for people to realize that this is someone's profession — whether they are a college student, a single mother working their second job of the day, a new dad who needs to pay off the loan he needed to take out to get a safer car for his child, your friend, your mom, your dad, your sister, your brother, you.

If you cannot afford to tip, do not come out to eat. If you cannot afford the three alcoholic drinks you gulped down, plus your food and a tip do not come out to eat.

If you cannot afford the $10 wings that become half-off on Tuesdays plus that water you asked for, do not come out to eat.

If you cannot see that the person in front of you is working their best to accommodate you, while trying to do the same for the other five tables around you, do not come out to eat. If you cannot realize that the man or woman in front of you is a real person, with their own personal lives and problems and that maybe these problems have led them to be the reason they are standing in front of you, then do not come out to eat.

As a server myself, it kills me to see the people around me being deprived of the money that they were supposed to earn. It kills me to see the three dollars you left on a $40 bill. It kills me that you cannot stand to put yourself in our shoes — as if you're better than us. I wonder if you realize that you single-handedly ruined part of our nights.

I wonder if maybe one day you will be in our shoes, and I hope to God no one treats you how you have treated us. But if they do, then maybe you'll realize how we felt when you left no tip after we gave you our time.

11 Struggles Of Working Customer Service That Any Retail Employee Can Understand

3. Trying to explain our return policy is a nightmare.

If you are lucky enough to ever work in customer service then you know all the headaches that can come from the job. It's a job that can sometimes be rewarding but also makes you wonder why you put up with it. If you currently are working in or have ever worked in customer service you'll be able to relate to these things:

1. The customer is always right.


Even when they are 100% wrong and being completely rude to you.

2. The customer ALWAYS wants to talk to a manager.

Even though it's my job to handle these problems and my manager is just going to tell you the same thing I just did.

3. Trying to explain our return policy is a nightmare.

Sorry no, I cannot return your 2 year old shoes that look like they have been ran over by a car and thrown in the mud.

4. You are constantly getting yelled at about things you cannot control.

I'm sorry that I cannot control the inventory we have in the store, or that you cannot find your coupon, or that you think our prices are way to high.

5. Trying to help customer who cannot be bothered to get off their phone for 30 seconds...

It's okay, I'll just wait. Take your time, finish your call.

6. When someone complains about you doing your job and enforcing your company's policies...

I know it's my fault that I'm just trying to do my job. My bad.

7. When people think by arguing you'll just give them what they want...

If anything, maybe if you were nice to me I'd try and help you out.

8. Frequently getting ignored when you are speaking...

It's fine, I like talking to myself.

10. The moment of pure anxiety when you know their request is impossible.

And you know you're going to get the brunt of their anger. Yikes.

11. Dealing with entitled, snobby people who think they are more important than everyone...

My absolute favorite thing about working customer service.


Can you relate to any of these annoying things?
