This will both surprise and anger you at the same time, but you should be made aware of the fact that there is no difference between the price of stupid-rugs and smart-rugs. I was in Target one day and just happened to be standing behind one of the workers when she was talking with another worker on her walkie-talkie. I clearly heard the worker on the other end say, “Got another one heading to rugs.”
Curious, I followed her as she headed to the rug aisle. I had been following her anyway, so it really wasn’t out of my way (that’s right, I didn’t just happen to be standing behind her--I have a problem; big deal. I‘m working on it). Anyway, she turned down the rug aisle and I watched as she grabbed a long horizontal pole above the smart-rug area and gave it a turn. That flipped all the price markers to the other side, which then showed a significant increase in the prices of the smart-rugs. When the guy looking for a rug arrived and saw the price difference between smart-rugs and stupid-rugs, like you, he opted for the stupid-rug.
After following that worker around some more, I finally got up the guts to ask her out. I said, “Hey Judy, I’ve been watching you and I saw what you did in the rug aisle.” Long story short, I went home that day with a free rug (a smart-rug) and I’m now married to that woman. You never know when you’re going to run into Miss Right. All in all, a magical day.
