That's what I thought too. But in this instance, it wasn't true. I knew exactly which model number I was looking for and there were no monitor numbers printed anywhere on the little card. Another Target employee eventually tried to help me, and he finally had to look up Target's own code online, which was
printed on the card, before he could figure out that yes, this was the model number I was looking for.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised that most consumers don't bother to find out much about the products they're buying ( though like Kingcarcas said, would anybody buy a car that way? (Hi. I'd like to buy a car.
. "Sure. How about this car?" Does it it have four doors?
"Yes, it does have four doors." And a radio?
Yes, this model has a radio. Okay, I'll take it.
But what does
surprise me, is that I was looked at with actual suspicion for even asking about a model number. Like asking for it revealed some sort of nefarious intention on my part. Like the model number was some sort of forbidden knowledge, forbidden fruit ...

I actually felt kind of sorry for him, like he might have been just slightly mentally disabled, or something. It's true, he was
being a little argumentative, about the model number and about the remote (which another employee had let me use without protest on a previous visit), but his arguments just seemed so ridiculous that I couldn't take them seriously or be offended by them.
