I was just down at Target to buy a cheap plate to use at work. I don’t want to take one from home and leave us with an odd number, and I don’t want to use paper plates because that’s not environmentally-friendly. So I picked up a cheap plate, Target’s Home brand. Not microwave safe. I picked up another, and it said the same thing. The only plates that ARE microwave safe at Target are the big heavy ceramic ones. I just want this so I can microwave my lunch on the occasions that I didn’t pack it in the same tupperware I’m going to eat it from.
A coworker mentions that this seems reasonable to him because, after all, “No one uses microwaves these days”. That coworker, obviously, was being sarcastic.
Anyway, Target, you suck. I know I’ll come crawling back next time I need kitty litter, but right now I’m mad at you.
