Old ppl take forever at Target

Today I went to Target to buy a Bluray that just came out and was expecting a short get in, get out trip. But then there's this old couple that kept talking about what they were buying, like how much the corn was, and basic boring old people chit chat. They were purchasing a bunch of stuff, mainly groceries.

The worst part comes is when the cashier asks if they want to sign up for a credit card. They were like, "No, I don't want to because it takes too much time and I don't bother with it, like they had to give a reason to her". Cashier said only takes like 2 minutes, and then all the sudden, they ask a bunch of questions about this credit card and then hold the line even longer after the cashier convinced them to spend more time to apply for the credit card to save a few dollars, just after they got a cartful of groceries scanned?

I wish that cashier never asked them to apply for a credit card, I wanted to tell that old couple not to bother with that credit card so we could keep the line moving. I don't think it even saved them that much and they probably have no idea if it was worth their time or money. But why can't the elderly think for themselves and not be coaxed into signing up for credit cards just because the cashier said it's a good idea. They had no idea how much they were saving, they only did it because the cashier said it was a good idea. Now they'll probably forget they signed up for it and end up losing more than saving when their target credit card goes overdue.

I was mad I had to choose to wait behind the elderly couple that had to sign up for a credit card and hold up the line that was piling up behind them. If I chose the other line, the other person finished up relatively quickly after all items were scanned and left, even though they had more items than the elderly couple. Worst day at Target. I hope I never get held up by another elderly couple again. I'll never let some cashier suggest me to sign up for a store credit card, no matter how old I get..........

That's an amazing story, and I'm thrilled that you've shared it. How'd you get your title, btw?

It's not just "old people" who don't think for themselves, it's people in general. I have to be honest, this thread is far below your standard, Mr. Troll.

Poutanen, bring on the yoga pants!
