     I rediscovered this email as I was cleaning up my Inbox.  I had obviously saved it because it is so funny!  I have no idea who wrote it, but kudos to whoever it was.  Some people are so creative!!


     After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to 
Target. Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and 
preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife is like 
most women - she loves to browse. 
    Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from the local Target.

Dear Mrs. Samuel,

Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion in 
our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to ban 
both of you from the store. Our complaints against your husband, Mr. 
Samuel, are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras.

1 June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other 
people's carts when they weren't looking.

2  July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute 

3  July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the 
women's restroom.

4  July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, 
'Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away'. This caused the employee 
to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor 
that in turn resulted with a union grievance, causing management to lose
time and costing the company money.

5  August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&Ms on 

6  August 14: Moved a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area.

7  August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the 
children shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and 
blankets from the bedding department to which twenty children obliged.

8  August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying 
and screamed, 'Why can't you people just leave me alone?' EMTs were 

9  September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a 
mirror while he picked his nose.

10  September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he 
asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.

11  October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while loudly humming 
the 'Mission Impossible' theme.

12  October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his 'Madonnalook' by 
using different sizes of funnels.

13  October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, 
yelled 'PICK ME! PICK ME!'

14  October 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he 
assumed a fetal position and screamed 'OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!'

And last, but certainly not least:

15  October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, 
then yelled very loudly, 'Hey! There's no toilet paper in here.' One of 
the clerks passed out.
