Toys R Us Shoppers Racist???

I so wish I had the picture to go along with this post.

On my way home from a friend's house today I stopped into Toys R Us to pick up a birthday gift for a friend of Little Dude.  The store was completely trashed and Black Friday had quite obviously had it's way with this particular store.  There were leaves and dirt all over the store.  It was gross, trash on the floor and nothing was where it was supposed to be.  I feel bad for those poor retail workers who are cleaning up that store as I blog.  Nasty.

Anyway, there was an end-cap that was practically in tact.  You know that freaky Barbie head?  The one where you can do her make-up and fix her hair but she has no body?  Well, all the blonde Barbies were gone but the shelves were full of the African American Barbie heads.  I thought that was interesting.  Again, the picture would have been better.  Reason #87 why I need an IPhone...or at the very least a data package.

  1. When I worked "high end" retail, Black Friday was THE worst thing ever. It trumped all night inventories, shoplifting, and just about everything else that sucks about retail.
