Total Recall

This past weekend I was on the hunt for a cute basket to help with an organizing project. While I was checking out the selection at a home decor store, I was sidetracked by a pile of adorable Keith Haring lunch bags.

Look! Something cute and distracting!

As I perused the pile, something else caught my eye.

Qu’est-ce que c’est?

So I went in for a closer look.

Is this danger lurking in your home?

Uh oh…That sure does look familiar….

Still looks sturdy to me.

As useful as it is for me to have a collapsible stool (especially since I max out at a height of 5’4″), it’s clearly not worth the risk. I plan on returning it and will post an update to let y’all know how it goes.

However, I just wanted to raise the issue of how ridiculously inaccessible this product recall sign is. I mean, they might as well have taped it to the ceiling or under a table. It’s almost completely obstructed.

Would you have spotted it?

So, to anyone who gave me weird looks for snapping pics of the merchandise, now you know what I was up to.

  1. “You hadn’t exactly gone out of your way to call attention to them, had you? I mean, like actually telling anybody or anything.”
    “But the plans were on display …”
    “On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.”
    “That’s the display department.”
    “With a flashlight.”
    “Ah, well the lights had probably gone.”
    “So had the stairs.”
    “But look, you found the notice didn’t you?”
    “Yes,” said Arthur, “yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard’.”

  2. Andrew, I think that was the exact idea! I’m assuming the store was required to post it somewhere…but where exactly was left to them.

    Janice, LOL. I contemplated photoshopping a face onto it, but I don’t want to get anymore attached than I already am. 😦
