People get addicted to a lot of different things. Some choose alcohol, others choose drugs and some are even addicted to sex. Luckily, for the rest of us there is ceramic pottery and we have ZERO shame about it. Now, It could be the cosmic euphoria we get from the hunt or a simple fact that the majority of us are OCD and need to see everything fucking labeled. Either way, we cant seem to get enough of this stuff.
We spend a lot of our day checking out Rae Dunn display photos or lurking around the Facebook B/S/T groups. Not only that but, we’re also constantly thinking when the next Marshall’s, Home Goods or T.J. Maxx trip is gonna be. Some of you reading this might think you don’t have an addiction so I’m here to help you come to terms with it. The real question is how bad is your addiction on a scale of 1 to fucking insane?
If you relate to more than two of these you might want to talk about it with somebody (and maybe not your husband).
#1 Receipts for days and enough shopping bags to wipe out the entire oceans whale population.
How many TJX receipts do you have laying around? One? Two? Three? or maybe even four? Go count I’ll wait. Truth be told, anything more than four and you’re considered a Rae Dunn Junkie. Spare me the bullshit that you bought something else. There is bound to be at least one Rae Dunn piece on that receipt. Also, when was the last time you counted how many shopping bags from TJX stores are around?
More than 4 receipts + a ton of shopping bags = Rae Dunn addict.
Do us all a damn favor and start bringing a backpack or a re-usable bag with you. Oh, and maybe start opting in for that emailed receipt.
#2 You greet the employees at the door and you know which ones are always 5 minutes late.
Yeah… If you’re waiting in line for the store to open while employees are still coming to work then you my friend have a Rae Dunn Addiction. Must I say more for #2?
#3 That person driving in front of me is definitely going to Home Goods.
I cant be the only one that gets full blown paranoia that the person driving in front of me is also going shopping at the same store right? For fu*cks sake they got off the same exit and made that same right turn I was planning to make. Yeah as it turns out, they weren’t.
Thinking the car in front of you is hunting for Rae Dunn = Rae Dunn Addict.
#4 Everyone walking in the parking lot is after the Dunn.
You know exactly what I’m talking about. You pull up into the parking spot, you park your car and you start to walk towards the entrance. The only problem is someone else is also walking towards that entrance. It could be they’re aiming for any of the 10 stores in this damn parking lot BUT NO CHANCE. That mother fucker is going after that Rae Dunn. Well as it turns out, they weren’t.
Speed walking when you see a stranger walking in the parking lot = Rae Dunn Addict.
#5 Everyone in the store is ONLY looking for Rae Dunn.
No they’re not. You have some serious issues. Go get some help.
Thinking everyone in the store is after the Dunn = fucking insane / Rae Dunn Addict.
#6 What’s in the cart lady?
As you walk in a store people walk out. That is likely going to happen at any retail store you enter. The problem is when someone is walking out of TJ, Marshall’s or Home goods you are staring at their cart with intent to kill. Everyone can sense murderous vibe you give off but then you realize all they bought was a throw pillow.
Murderous vibes = Rae Dunn Addict (Potential serial killer).
#7 What’s behind door number one?
You’re casually strolling through the store and don’t get very lucky today. That’s when you have the bright idea of you know.. Just taking peak behind the stockroom door. Here is your reality check. NORMAL CUSTOMER DON’T DO THAT. Did you do it when you went to Target, Macy’s or Walmart? I didn’t think so.
Peeking into the stock room = Rae Dunn Addiction.
Rae Dunn at this point in time seems to be life. We may be a little nuts but that’s ok. Think about it, It could be much worse. You could be a 28 year old man addicted to ceramic pottery and your friends could say you’re turning into a grandma. #facts
Either way it’s all fun and games until someone grabs a birdhouse in front of you. I want to see how bat shit crazy I am so PLEASE if you relate to anything but #1&2 let me know in the comments below. Don’t forget to like and share this blog post.
