I once observed that Michael’s is like Home Depot for women. Of course, there are plenty of women who shop at home; and there are certainly a small number of men who shop at Michael’s, but the general point stands. This is the face of a guy who had just walked into the Michael’s in Emeryville and gotten a look at the checkout line. During the holiday season, the line at this store is absolutely outrageous. It moves quickly, though, and so it’s never as bad as it looks…but when you walk in the front door of the store, the line is the first thing you see, and it looks pretty awful. I say, bring a book to pass the time, or–even better–shop online and avoid going to Michael’s entirely.
