The Midtown Target hates returns

I don't know what the problem with the Midtown Target store is (on Minnehaha and Lake) but EVERY single thing I have tried to return, with a receipt, they have tried to deny on the basis that it was "used". The last thing was a trash can I bought to use for recycling. I found out it was too large (has to be 10 gallons or less to use without a bag FYI) before I used it. Yes, it took me about a month to return it but I had surgery for Christ's sake. I brought it into the store and the girl looks in it, sees a speck of dust and tells me it can't be returned because it looks like it's been used. I am going to bet that every trash can they have there looks like that just from sitting in the store.

Why all of a sudden no returns on anything that has been used? This is literally at least the 4th thing I've returned that they have tried to deny because it's been used. Even if it doesn't frickin WORK they will not return something if it's been "used". When did returning things to Target become such a pain in the ass? They used to be just about the most customer friendly store and lately they have done a complete 180. I never thought I'd say this but I might as well shop at Walmart, at least they are reasonable about taking things back when they don't work the way you expect them too.

Midtown on the web

I was curious what google would have to say about Midtown since it's not really as widely used or known as other areas around the city such as Uptown, Downtown, Dinkytown and such.

Google the phrase "Midtown Minneapolis" and you get this:,_Minneapolis

OK, I have never even been tempted to create a Wikipedia account to edit a page, but I am seriously considering it just so I can add Midown Girl to the list of "many places and groups [that] use he "midtown' descriptor in their name". Hmph.

I am so ashamed....

... that I can actually name the Kardashian sisters and tell who's who in a picture. I just discovered this disturbing fact today.

Enough with the santa suit!

I am so sick of Bob and his chubby santa I could puke. Come on, I realize that Bob is the gift that keeps on giving and he and his Enzyte infused manhood probably make the ladies feel like it's Christmas all damn year long, but enough is enough!

Crimes in Midtown

I just saw a story on about an assault in a garage in the Corcoran/Standish neighborhood.

The following comes from this article :

During the incident, a resident was beaten and sexually assaulted in her detached garage by the male suspect around 2:30 p.m. The victim fought with her attacker before he fled the area.

later in the article they describe the suspect:

The suspect is an unknown, 20 to 40-years-old, approximately six-feet tall with a medium build. The suspect is described as wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and jeans.

Oh yeah! THAT guy. Rest assured that I will keep clear of all men around 6ft tall with a medium build between 20 and 40. I understand she was probably in shock and I am not making light of this AT ALL but I don't think description is going to help anyone apprehend this guy. I hope he is caught by some other means before anyone else is hurt.

I had a bout with crime myself this week. I will have the entire story on my other blog "Girl Meets House" later this week, but the quick story is I gave quite a good description, the police caught the kid and I got my iPod back. He got an ankle bracelet until his final hearing next month.

The turkeys return to Midtown

I was headed up to Target the other day and I noticed something going on at Minnehaha and Lake. People were stopped in cars in odd places, pedestrians were pointing, children were in awe. I looked over and saw the turkeys were back. Right in the middle of Lake St! I only wish I'd had my camera with me!

My evil plan...

Congratulations on being the creator of a new

Evil Plan (tm)!

Your objective is simple: Widespread Misery.

Your motive is a little bit more complex: Madness

Stage One

To begin your plan, you must first seduce a senator. This will cause the world to give one another worried looks, baffled by your arrival. Who is this despoiler of all that is good and nice and true? Where did they come from? And why do they look so good in classic black?

Stage Two

Next, you must contaminate/poison the pacific ocean. This will all be done from a amusement park, a mysterious place of unrivaled dark glory. Upon seeing this, the world will wet their pants, as countless hordes of evil clowns hasten to do your every bidding.

Stage Three

Finally, you must tauntingly wave your plague of doom, bringing about nightmares for every man, woman and child. Your name shall become synonymous with the spice girls, and no man will ever again dare make you clean your room. Everyone will bow before your unbreakable will, and the world will have no choice but to restore your credit rating.
