i almost forgot this one!
here in lovely
California we are on STORM WATCH OF DOOOOOOM 2006. okay it's more like spring rainy season but fellow southern Californians will know how much drama the LA media likes to make of said season. XD
a bit of background on me - now normally i LOVE the rain. however when my window frame (this is important) in my bedroom (the window is above my bed) leaks then i cannot sit and enjoy the drumming of rain on a metal roof. i go into panic and upset mode, to say the least.
it was too late for my dad to come over (he owns this place, i'm buying it from him) so he told me to go to home depot, buy necessary stuff and he would pay me back (since it can be written off on taxes).
so i hurry over to the local pain in the ass Home Depot. i went there once just looking and their craptastic service annoyed me no end but that's another story.
halfway there i remembered a product my best friend's hubby (JJ is Mr. Fix It) had talked about using to patch a leak when it's wet--inside or out....in fact had done it on the roof out in a pouring deluge: Henry's rubberized patch.( Collapse )
this is the second time i've been in our Home Depot and i swear to God, they really need to hire a new crop because it seems 99% of the employees don't even fucking know their products! yes i don't expect you to know every single small little tiny screw code number but a big name product--that people have been purchasing ALL DAY due to the weather conditions--come on.
unfortunately LG and BE had no name badges on or else i would have called management the next morning. i plan to go down there anyway to speak to someone because i'd like Mark to be given a kudos or a good note on his record or SOMETHING for his helpful attitude. if i can bring myself to even SET foot in that idiotic place again....
