Bad Day At Target

We bought a TV at Target yesterday. When we got it home and opened it, we discovered it was missing both the manual and the remote.

How can something like this happen? Well, one possibility is that Target puts returned, opened merchandise back out on the shelf as new. Another possibility is that the TV really was factory-fresh, and that the factory messed up when it put the package together.

The Target manager preferred the blame-the-factory theory. She said she would have to check the box, to see if it was sealed with "original factory tape."

A helpful tip: you can slice right through "original factory tape" with Occam's Razor.
