    contractors who can't cut it become inspectors who if they can't cut it become " sales associates" , my homo depot story is one day i am looking for 3 pole breakers for a commercial job i'm doing and the electrical "sales associate" gives me a stupid look because he has never heard of 3 pole breakers
    listen to me or i will eat you're bacon

    I can tell you they don't know shit about locks either. I try not to listen, but sometimes I just have to speak up and correct them. That of course leads to even more explanations.

    Two local rental shops were closed, it was poor planning on my part. So I call the Home Depot.

    "Do you have any power rakes available?"
    "Yes Sir, 1 is left".
    "Good, I'd like to rent one. Can you charge my card and hold it for me, I'll be 20 minutes".
    "No, we do not do that. It's first come, first serve."

    Off I go.

    I get there, 1 units is there... I am at the counter. "Sir, that machines are rented"... "To who?" and this lady behind me pipes up "One is mine! I reserved it".

    Ahhh... so Bandito starts to get excited.

    "Well I called here, and I was told you CAN'T reserve... so how did this lady get one?"

    "I don't know sir, her name was here when I got here."

    "Well, I don't give a fuck about that.. if you can't reserve, you can't reserve... I'll take the machine and she can get it another time".

    So this lady gets all spazzy over it... calls me a rude man and other things... and I told her it wasn't my problem that the folks here can't follow protocol.

    The Manager come over... big fuss... and I agree to let the lady have the machine... mainly because she is in yoga pants and she looks half decent to me.

    So they call the other POCO location, they have one. They won't reserve it for me, again.. first come, first serve. So I drive the 20 minutes over there... and I see the machine.

    "I'd like to rent that power rake".

    Some guy comes out from the back "Ah, that one was returned yesterday and is broken... it can't be rented..."

    So I fucking snap. "I've already been fucked over by your other shop, they called here... I drive here and it's fucking broken? I've just wasted an hour of my time and $10 worth of gas for f's sake.."

    Anyhow, I talked to the manager, and explained my story. Really, it's first come first serve, I get that. He agreed their inability to secure a rental with card is a bit lame, but it's corporate policy.

    I walked out of there with a $50 home depot gift card.

    But they still suck a cock trumpet.
    Ya know, after that stunt you pulled the other day, I don't believe a word of this. $50 gift card my ass.

    You admitted it was poor planning, so deal with it instead of venting at store clerks. I would've made a couple of calls instead of driving around, calm down dude it's not the end of the world and the guy talking to about lawn spray is just trying to do his job.

    Me: Hi I'm looking for a pex pipe fitting, where can i find them?

    Home Expert: What do you need it for?

    Me: Can you please just direct me to the aisle

    Home Expert: Sure no problem, what are you building?

    Me: I'm just doing a little plumbing can you please just point me in the right direction (anger brewing)

    Home Expert: Indoor or outdoor plumbing and what is it for?

    Me: Do you sell Pex pipe and fittings or what?

    Home Expert: We sure do, What do you need it for?

    Me: Seriously dude?

    That went on for a while ending with me leaving the store.
