Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Got E-Waste? Target, RadioShack Will Buy Your Old iPhone

Target and RadioShack are buying old gadgets, making it all the easier to keep e-waste out of landfills.


One of the pitfalls of our ever improving tech devices is that we throw away perfectly good gadgets. You can probably recall at least one instance of replacing a cell phone not because it was broken beyond repair, but because a sleek new model caught your eye.

Planned obsolescence is sometimes more about perception than functionality, and that old phone you recently replaced might be just what someone else is looking for. That's why retailers like Target and RadioShack are partnering with websites like NextWorth, Gazelle, and CExchange to buy back used gadgets for store credit (or cold hard cash if you go directly through NextWorth.)
