Memo to Old Navy

Dear Old Navy,

For the love of all that is good in this world clean up that hell-hole that you call a retail establishment.

Your entire store was one big messy hunk of junk. Tables were piled moutain high with who-knows-what. The only items actually on hangers were all shoved on one teeny, tiny rack and nearly exploded at my very presence. The only thing I could find and browse easily was the very small section of dog items on the end-cap of the register.

However, one can't be in search of new yoga pants and make a trip to Old Navy and come out with only a bag with a new polo for The Bargainista Pooch that she intends to monogram with only that now can one? Don't worry, I didn't. But mostly because I'm mad at you Old Navy.

You often have a lovely variety of yoga pants, zip-up hoodie jackets, socks, and the occasional decent shirt or sweater. However, face it, you're clothes are made cheaply and not exactly long-lasting quality. That said, I still purchase items that are rather inexpensive because I feel I can get my use out of them.

What I will not do is search through your heaps of junk. No siree not me!

I may be The Bargainista, but the only way I'm throwing punches and diving headfirst into that mess is if there is the promise of a pair of True Religion jeans on the bottom for 90% of that fit my stubby legs, birthing hips, and bubble bum perfectly.

Now let me out, I'm going to Target for yoga pants.

Charmingly yours,
The Bargainista

Ugh I know what you mean. I even worked there for a while last spring. I would do nothing but try to straighten clothes (especially on the weekends) because everything. was. crazy. I don't understand why they don't put people on straighten control until the afternoons. By then, it is usually so craptastic that it takes until way past closing (at least 2 hours) to fix it, with about 5 people in each section. I'm very much a "do it as you go" type person.

It doesn't help that many of the people who shop there have no respect for a folded shirt either. :P

The one in Alcoa is the WORST! I don't think they have EVER folded one piece of clothing there! I HATE it!
