I don't have a lot of time to post. Well, that's not true. I guess I've got all night, but I'm not going to spend it posting. I'm off to watch TV with my wife for the first time in probably a week. So, the posts will pick up again later in the week after I get the fence completed, I presume.
nf0 was nice enough to strap 11 fence panels onto the back of his truck and drive 20mph from Home Depot to Chez Donahue last night.
Let me say this about Home Depot: F-you and your shitty service. I've had it with you, Home Depot. Lowe's always has someone to help. In fact, Lowe's always has someone trying to go out of their way to help me. From the very helpful Bryan K in tractors to the very gay Buford W in fencing, everyone at Lowe's wants to help me spend my money. With the exception of your tool rental scheme, your store has nothing to offer me but a stack of fence panels and a eat-shit, load it yourself attitude. Ever wonder why you have pallets full of fencing and Lowe's doesn't? I used to think you bought more, but now I'm convinced that Lowe's just does a better job selling than Home Depot.
Investors wonder why HD isn't sustaining gains and is losing share. Well, just go in the place on a weeknight and try…just try…finding someone to ask for help in loading fencing or which deck screw to buy. Pathetic.
I cannot wait for the new Lowe's in Flower Mound. Then it's bye-bye Depot and buy-buy Lowe's. Stupid Home Depot.
