I love to save money whenever possible. Who doesn’t? Especially these days!
But I’m not afraid to say I’m a brand snob about certain things. I won’t do generic to save pennies or even quarters on certain items. Mostly health and beauty items as well as some food items.
I’ve always been impressed with the quality of the store brands of one of my favorite shopping places…Target! Who the heck doesn’t love Target?
Imagine my surprise when I pulled this out of my Tar-jay
kleenex tissue box last week.
Ahem. Is that painter’s tape holding the tissue together?
Did a human or machine include it in my box?
Of course, I had to photograph it. And summons PhilBillPaul to inspect it.
I realize it is not a dead rodent or a smashed bug which would totally have put me over the edge.
Still, I’m concerned. The box is about three quarters used. Not like the last tissue in the box. Which would also be disturbing.
Are they taping tissues together on the production line?
Should I return the whole box which was in a package of 3 boxes?
Should I write a letter to Target and kindly request a lifetime supply of tissues?
Or should I just blog about it, throw it away and move on?
Weigh in please. I respect your opinions, my friends.
Especially after you all agreed with me on the Team Tiger debacle. 😉
