This is more of a whine than a rant:
We moved from the south, back up north recently. We didn't have much in the way of real cold weather clothes since we lived in Florida. After checking
the temperature averages & forecasts for this time of year, I figured what we had would definitely suffice until the first paycheck was to be had.
Basically, all we had was lightweight hoodies, and they're packed up in temporary storage while we house hunt.
Yeah, no. It's a little colder some days than we expected, and while the kids are good, the adults need jackets (and in my case, something longer than
shorts) Our cash is extremely limited at the moment, but I did have enough in PayPal to get some warm clothes for store pickup from Target. I was
really pleased with the jacket I found. I scoped out the coats & jackets in-store before ordering to make sure what I ordered fit, and was looking
forward to it. Except, after placing the order, and getting the "Come get it" email this morning, it's no longer available in my size at the
store near us (or any of the other ones nearby) Well crap. OK, I'll just get the next size up, it won't be that much of an issue to have one not quite
Pfft, nope, Target's store selection menu breaks, and I can't select the store to reorder it in a bigger size. Hell, I can't order anything for store
pickup right now, it's totally busted. Tonight's supposed to be around 40, if not colder. I can handle that, but when it gets into the 30's, I
(finally) start to get cold. To say I need it is an understatement. Payday is next week, I can hold out that long and buy whatever from where ever
then. I was just hoping to get one before then.
First World problems, eh?
