Target, One Man and the Quest for Civility.

Well I am 2 for 2 on the on time posts! Go Me!

Last week though I am going to talk about something that is close to my heart. Support for equality. Target just announce their gender neutral move in their toy department. My opinion? Awesome, really cool idea. Most of America’s opinion? WTF, this is stupid, target sucks. You can likely see the comments all over their Facebook page still. The saddest part of this whole thing is these are likely the same people who openly hate on anyone simply because they can hide behind a keyboard.

I just hope that all of these idiots who do this realize that they can fly their confederate flags and insult people all they want but at the end of the day that is what the rest of the world sees. For people who are supposedly “proud” of their country you sure don’t look it.

Anyway, that was not the point of this article. The point ones what one man did to prove a point, and to be honestly, say what Target likely wanted to say but couldn’t.

Mike Melgaard created a fake Facebook account as a Target customer service agent and went around replying to some of the bone headed things people actually said.

Here are some of my favouties:

target-troll-2a

target-troll-1a

target-troll-6a

And the best one of all…

target-troll-15a

Facebook eventually shut down the account and ruined everyone’s fun. Target did the right PR thing and released a statement saying that it was not in fact them and they are sorry blah blah blah. But then they did a glorious thing and posted this.

And all was right in the world again.

Happy Monday!
