The Dangers of Shopping at Target

Yesterday, I discovered that it can be dangerous to shop at Target.

…wearing a red shirt.

I was walking along, minding my own business. I had been re-listening to season 1 of Gregg Taylor’s character Martin Bracknell’s radio play Black Jack Justice (one of my favorite latter-day online radio series). I had paused my smartphone’s podcast player and removed my earbuds, and was poking through my email, when a guy walked up to me.

“Hi. How’re ya’ doin’?”

“Hi. I’m fine.” Me, suspicious, interrupted.

“Do you work here?”

“No.”

“Oh. Sorry.”

Then his friend called to him, “Hey, I think it’s over there.”

And the kicker: he was wearing a red shirt, too.

Where is a bona fide red-shirt when you need one?

P.S. Okay, so maybe not quite as dangerous as I originally implied. But enjoy these red-shirted photos anyhow:
