Target has been giving small CLI's to some people lately.

 

I picked up a Target Redcard in December, $1000 limit. I don't use it much, $50 would be a large month. But if someone is gonna steal my credit card number from Target, let em steal the Target card... And who knows, maybe I'll use it for the free shipping sometime.

 

Even so, after 4 months they gave me an auto CLI to $1600.

Mine opened in 2006 with a whopping $200 limit and stayed there till this year, seriously. At some point I noticed it jumped to $400, now it is at $600. Used it a little more last year, so perhaps they decided to "reward" me.

I've stopped shopping at Target.

 

The lines have gotten as bad as W*****t. Last time I was in there I left a cart full of merchandise near the checkouts and walked out.

 

I buy everything I used to get at Target from Drugstore.com and Amazon. I don't even care that it costs more.

You should be so proud of yourself. Some poor sole had to take that cart, as well as 4-5 (sometimes 9) other overflowing carts of things (guests decided they didn't want) and put it all back. Congrats.

It's the least I could do in return for the third-world shopping experience.

 

If I could have gotten closer to a register I would have smeared my own feces on the impulse items.

Stay classy.

They get paid to put things back. And yes, it's an ongoing, never ending task. Just like restaurant side work. Wait staff hate slicing lemons & rolling silverware, but it's part of their job. I hate taking medical histories & home med lists. Part of my job.

They might "get paid" but it's still awful. It'd suck if you had to stay an hour or two after your work closed everyday, to put everything back. These are the same people, who stay nice to you and try to help you even though most treat them like chocolate.

While that's certainly true, people could just be a little bit nicer.

 

I mean you'd question humanity.. if someone just finished zoning or cleaning up a section, and than a hour later.. it looks like Hurricane Katrina hit.

Don't worry too much about it. You won't work at Target forever.

Didn't say that it didn't suck. It sucks to get a new patient at 0600 & have to get everyone's 0600 meds, vital signs & 0700 meds done PLUS take a new patient history with home med list, assemble a new chart, enter all their orders, possibly initiate IV therapy which might also necessitate obtaining IV access & if they came from the ER, 9/10 times they're asking for pain meds the minute they hit the unit doors. Many, many, many nurses regularly overstay their shift by an hour or more in order to get things done.

 

Yes. It sucks when people leave an entire cart. It sucks when they eat packaged food in the store & stuff the packaging behind items on the shelves. It sucks when they unfold EVERY. SINGLE. SHIRT. on the shelf. But it's their job to handle all of that.

 

Don't tell me about being nice until you can nicely tell a drug addict that the doc just stopped all their narcotics.

 

I think it's rude to leave an entire cart. I don't do it. But I also don't have any problem handing an item back to the cashier when I change my mind.

As a Guest Service Team Leader, I actually had to tell one guest that their script couldn't be filled because of their Prescription Monitoring Report, and then I had to "nicely" inform them, that they needed to leave the store immediately. That was really fun.. I came quite close to being assaulted by a pain killer addict. Only decent thing, is Loss Prevention slowly came to the floor and backed me up.

 

"We hope you have a wonderful afternoon, and "look forward" to assisting you in the future"...... :rolleyes::rolleyes: (rolls eyes)

Another fun one... was a guy trying to purchase Sudafed with a Fake Military ID. (One of the techs had remembered his purchase from a few weeks prior, with a State ID, and thought something was off). As it turned out... the same guy and his Girl/GF/or whatever had apparently threatened TM's at yet another store while leaving with Stolen Razor Blades, and other merchandise.

 

 

I've had plenty of folks leave AMA as soon as we cut the tap to the IV narcotics.

 

Funny how that works.... They are magically fine again.

:offtopic: A bit troubling to hear service providers go O/T about bad apples they encounter in care giving positions, that is, at least to the extent it's often those with legit pain/injury who pay the price of commonly misplaced cynicism...with only a relatively small percentage of the overall population constrained to abuse narcotics, and a disproportionate number of who work in the medical profession.

I'd use my Target Card more, or at least remember to carry the silly thing, if they'd give me the MasterCard version. As it stands, half the time I'm in Target and the card is at home because I only carry a couple of cards around with me.

 

(Incidentally, I was on vacation in Finland a little bit ago. I've never seen a Target MasterCard "in the wild"--that is, outside of Target--in the States. Saw two of 'em over there.)

It's always interesting to hear about what people's idea of a bad day at the office is.

There's a huge difference between folks with chronic pain & those who are just seeking to satisfy their addictions. They need real help & unfortunately, the help that they need they refuse. I frequently care for patients with long term, chronic conditions that are painful. They absolutely do get appropriate pain relief.

 

Sorry that it's troubling for you to hear about the stark realities within our healthcare system. What you should be most troubled about is that your healthcare providers are victimized by workplace violence more often than many other professions. And many times, the offender isn't charged or prosecuted. I've got coworkers who've been bitten, had their arm broken, been punched and/or kicked, eyes blacked.

 

And yeah. They can make for a "bad day at the office" because sometimes people lose control. I love, love, LOVE being a nurse. I'm passionate about caring for people. I'm not passionate about being assaulted or abused by someone who doesn't want help.

 

Back to the actual topic at hand though, my Target card remains open without a CLI except one about 6 months after opening it. $700 is where it's stuck seemingly.

Lol. A real bad day is going home wearing green scrubs, disposable undies & a surgical bra. THAT'S a BAD day! Edited by dansamy

:offtopic::offtopic: Sorry about the confusion. Since some seem to think that that signing up for being a nurse makes them the only authority on the stark realities of our healthcare system. What's a bit troubling is to find caregivers post O/T commentary swiping at certain patients for whose care they are charged with, while discussing conditions and speculating on the level of knowledge of others about healthcare, on the internets/creditforum.

I'm not swiping at any particular patient specifically. I haven't discussed or disclosed any individual patient's conditions, treatments, outcomes or compliance with management of any disease or condition. I've spoken only in very general terms of what my personal experience is sometimes like daily at the bedside. I also didn't pretend or posit that nurses are the only authority on our healthcare system. I made no such statement at all. That was your assumption.

 

I've obviously gotten on a nerve of yours for which I'll apologize. That's all I'll apologize for though. You know neither me nor the patients for whom I care.

 

And I didn't "sign up to be a nurse". That's cute. I earned both my degree & licensure.
