The Toy Section at Target

The shelves at Target on Christmas Eve Eve were quite bare. Reports of the declining economy seem exaggerated.

    I don't know, Sim. I think you underestimate the cunning nature of the Target sales staff. You see that associate blending into the orange background? Every few minutes she grabs something from the fully stocked shelves on the right and puts it over on the left. The unsuspecting, desperate last minute would-be gift giver walks down this isle and thinks..."oh, they are almost all out of stupid white fluffy poodely things...I better get the last one before someone else does." This way, target is able to manage their inventories by tricking you into buying what they want you to.

    Don't even try to go back for that poodle...I'm having it gift wrapped right now.

    Merry Christmas.
