Because I hate myself, I went to Target yesterday. On Black Friday.
"Liz, are you an insane person? Why would you do that to yourself?!"
I can thank this little idiot for that:
"Je ne regrette rien." — Nugget 🐾
You see, Nugget has a little "snuggle bunker" of a crate — that, FYI, is larger than my first Washington, D.C., apartment. When she tires of chasing the cat around the house, and pulling loaves of bread and the mail off my kitchen counters, she'll go into her little home and take a nap.
Well, yesterday afternoon, I walked out and found that she had massacred her favorite bed. Maybe she's like me that way. There are some days I walk around the house and suddenly hate everything in it, so, I guess I get it.
Anyway, that's how I ended up standing in a line at Target that looped around part of the store, trying to buy a dog bed... along with two cases of seltzer, some candles, and a new hoodie that, quite frankly, I didn't need. But that's how Target works, right?
I mention all of this because I want to ask y'all a question — have you noticed how much more complicated it is to check out at a store?
"Hey, I know you really only need to swipe your credit card, so you can be on your way, but can I have your phone number, your date of birth, the name of your best friend in high school, and your pet's name? Oh, and do you have our app? You should get our app, because you'll save exactly three pennies every time you shop with us."
That happened to me at Target, and it's crazy to me how much data companies want from us. In fact, thinking about that specific experience, as well as scores of others like it, it's wild how much personal information we give out just so we can get on with our day.
As I cast my gaze over the three useless holiday candles I bought yesterday, these are the questions I ponder.
