For Miles, Penn, Charlie, and Taylor, the husbands of Target, Target is where their wives spend upwards of 12 hours a week doing . . . whatever it is they do in there, and as they each admit, over the years they've been pretty bored. Although Penn completed his doctorate in Target parking lots between 2015 and 2018, and Taylor scored a part-time job wrangling the red carts while his wife shopped, it wasn't until Charlie knocked on Taylor's car window and offered him some beef jerky that their support group, Husbands of Target, was really born.
Now, the men look forward to their wives' near-daily Target shopping trips so they can tailgate in the parking lot and cook brats on Miles's grill, cheer for their favorite sports teams on the TV in the back of Penn's van, and play poker inside the back of one car while their kids play wildly in another — but don't worry, the dads have a video baby monitor and take 15-minute shifts each watching the cameras.
