Kohl’s Registry

After our low-tech encounter at the Corelle store, we tried our luck at Kohl’s. We had browsed around the store the evening before to get a feel for what they had. We decided that it would be worthwhile. For example, Clarissa was just short of giddy that she had found green bath towels that I liked at Kohl’s. We walked back to Customer Service, and they set us up with a barcode scanning gun.

At first, I was disappointed with the gun. It was not nearly as fancy as the one we had used at Target. (It only had a small two-line readout that showed nothing decipherable unlike the touchscreen display at Target.) However, as I played with it more, I realized that it was strikingly similar to a Star Trek phaser. I took a picture of it with my phone, and Clarissa shook her head and pretended not to know me. We continued scanning items. I shot her a few times like I had done at Target. It had no effect. However, every time I pulled the trigger, a nice horizontal bar flickered across the back of Clarissa’s head. It was just like a phaser set for a wide dispersal pattern. I must say that it was more satisfying than the tight horizontal line that the Target gun produced.

After we had registered for all of our items, we walked back to Customer Service to return the phaser. As we were waiting in line, I turned the phaser over and discovered that it was in fact a phaser! It had a label on the bottom that said “Phaser” and had additional information about the model. I pulled out my phone again and tried to take a picture of the label. Unfortunately the close-up shot just wouldn’t focus, and they all turned out blurry. Clarissa stood there and stared, but then she reached into her purse and pulled out her digital camera and took a picture of the label for me. When we got to the front of the line, the employee took the scanner and came around and attached it to the registry kiosk so it could upload our scanned items into the database. It gave us a printout of the items we had registered for. The last item showed up as an unknown barcode. I think it may have been the back of Clarissa’s head.

As with Target and Corelle, please feel free to browse our Kohl’s Registry.
