The crazy shift leader would not take any coupon that beeped. She talked over me when I tried to explain to her why the coupon was beeping (it was an overage, she just needed to adjust it down). She said she would only accept coupons for the items pictured on the coupon no matter what the wording said. I really really really want to black list her name all over this blog, but I think that's slander.
Bottom line: I spent over 3 hours trying to educate 2 Target cashiers, 1 shift leader, and one store manager on their own corporate coupon policies. I had to call corporate from the red "bat phone" on the wall at guest services. Corporate informed the crazy shift leader that she needed to accept my coupons. She huffed and puffed, slammed my coupons on the desk... the whole bit. Whatever. I walked out with my freebies.
The most ironic part of this whole ordeal was when she finally accepted that they would have to take my coupons, she sent me through a younger teenage guy's lane who, wouldn't you know it, pushed through everyone of my coupons with no complaint, combined everything into one transaction, and gave me overage too! Too bad he wasn't on the clock when the whole fiasco started 3 hours earlier. I love Target and their inconsistent coupon policies. *sarcastic tone*

And I hit one more Wags store for the clearance Zyrtec. I literally have more than 20 bottles of this stuff. My total profit from the Zyrtec deal is over $40. That makes up for the Target disaster I had to deal with on Friday.
