Slightly Disturbing

Okay, in an effort to find out if Target even carries umbrellas, I went on their website.

First of all, I did a search and it came up with results divided into categories (children, outdoors, women and books).

But what really bugged me about this was that it was not listed in the category “pets” or “outdoor” but in “women.” I don’t think it would bug me so much if it were also found in “men” or “pets” or frankly if they’d just put it in all categories.

Of course I haven’t seen the sales stats, so maybe they’ve targeted the correct demographic for these.

During November it's all about me writing a novel. Sometimes it's about whalewatching. You know, and then there's other stuff.
