I know this because if the guy I spoke with on the phone can work at Target, I am sure I will be able to don the red shirt of Target.
My usual source of ink cartridges went out of business. I had called the closest Target store and asked if they carried Epson ink cartridges and sure enough, they do. I went to the store only to find they were out of two of the five colors I need to complete a set. I asked where the next nearest Target was and was told Oakdale; another 20 minutes down the road. I called the Oakdale store to make sure they had my missing colors before I ventured further down the road with $3.10/gallon gasoline in the tank. I was transferred to the computer department. The conversation went as follows:
(TTG=Teenage Target Guy)
TTG: (with slight surfer dude accent) Hello, how can I help you?
Balou: I was just at the Hudson Target store and they are missing two colors of the Epson ink cartridges I need. I am calling to make sure you have what I need before I drive there.
TTG: We have Epson ink cartridges.
Balou: Could you check and make sure you have all 5 colors for the R300 printer?
TTG: Ummm, R300?
Balou: Yes. R300 is the type of Epson Stylus printer. It is printed on the box.
Balou: There is a picture of a guitar on the front.
TTG: (excitedly) Oh! Yaww! We have the guitar one.
Balou: Do you have the Light Cyan and Magenta available?
TTG: Yaww, we have those.
Balou: OK, thanks. I'm coming from Hudson. I know I need to go north on I-694 but what exit do I take?
TTG: Take Hwy 5.
Balou: Are you on the east or west side of the freeway?
(After a long pause...)
TTG: Umm. Which side does the sun come up again?
Balou: bwaaa haaa haaa haa ha hahaha ho ho ho hummm um. Are you serious?
(I can hear him asking a co-worker "Dude, are we east or west of the freeway?")
TTG: Yaww, it's the east side.
Balou: Thank you.
So, what side of the freeway does the sun come up in your neck of the woods?
