On Black Friday, we went to Walgreens because we saw this in the circular for $19.99. It’s a 4.5 foot prelit tree. In order to purchase it, you had to take a ticket to the register.
The cashier spoke about 50% English. (a rant for another day). She rang up the rest of my purchase, which may or may not have included padded insoles but neglected to scan the ticket. I politely pointed out to her that the ticket was for the tree I wanted. She scanned the ticket, put it in the bag and finished the transaction.
I politely explained to her that although she had to scan the ticket, someone had to get my tree. She called for the manager. Manager 1 arrived, looked at my ticket with a panicked expression, and said, “You bought a tree?”
Yes, yes I did.
Manager 2 comes out. “Is that a tree purchase?” he bellowed.
“She bought a tree!” Manager 1 replied nervously.
“I can go get the tree,” he reassured her. “What tree?”
She skittishly scanned the ticket. “M!” she yelled.
Three minutes later I was in posession of a measly 2 1/2 foot cardboard box. Inside that, America’s Saddest Christmas Tree.
Yes, there is ONE ornament on the tree. I feel like I should decorate it with losing lottery tickets and pictures of Jimmy Carter.
Jimmy Carter is the best ex-president we ever had.
I got to call a spade a spade. That is a sad Christmas tree.
Hey, but with a little TLC and feminine touch, I bet that tree will Rock. It will have nothing on the Charlie Brown tree.
Politics again :-)…(smile)
lol…no politics, please! I only mentioned Carter because he’s associated with “malaise” (which I did not know wasn’t even mentioned in that speech!).
I went to Target today and bought some ornaments…the tree should be looking better shortly.
The finished tree will look beautiful. Looks nice on the table.
The joke is that he is the best “ex-president”. That was a joke—HA HA HA!!!
