R = me!
C = Chick that works at Target Ithaca (in Customer Service!) and gives all people who interact with her hopelessly blank stares.
R: Hi, do you know when the Hanukkah stuff goes on sale?
C: I can't tell you that.
C: Corporate decides when we have different promotional sales. Even if I knew, I couldn't tell you.
R: Its not a promotional sale, its holiday merchandise. I waited until after Hanukkah to buy a menorrah because I thought it'd be on sale.
C: *blank stare*
R: When a holiday ends, all the related merchandise goes on sale, right?
C: Right. So?
R: Hanukkah ended. Yesterday. So shouldn't the stuff go on sale very soon?
C: We don't decide when we put things on sale, corporate decides.
R: Halloween stuff goes on sale on November 1st. Valentine's Day stuff, February 15th. Xmas...
C: Christmas items go on sale after Christmas because its a holiday.
R: Right! So since yesterday was the last night of Hanukkah, the stuff will go on sale...
C: I don't know, corporate decides when we have promotional sales, not individual stores.
LIKE TALKING TO A FUCKING WALL.
R: Ok, I guess I'll just call corporate or wait or something. Thanks. *I start to walk away*
C: You're welcome. Merry Christmas!
R: *stares* I'm jewish.
C: Huh? You are?
R: I just spent ten minutes arguing with you about a menorrah and Hanukkah decorations.
C: *blank stare, completely not taking in anything I'm saying* Ok. Merry Christmas.
