Re: What the???
Another EO story ....
The other day someone asked me to check out a shed package available at EO for them ... to see what I thought of it.
As a favour off I went .... while looking over the shed .... typical cheaply built and over priced .... there was this haunting phrase that kept sounding.
" Home Depot is a proud supporter of This Old House".
Remembering that A.Spruce said about the TOH magazine being around the checkouts..... what the heck ... went inside to have a look.
Wandered around the checkouts checking the magazine selection ..... no This Old House magazine.
It was quiet in the store and several employees were gathered around the checkouts yakking away ... I politely apologized for interrupting them to ask if they had any other place for the magazines and books.
One fellow says ... err ... umm.. I think this is all we have.
Another employee ... who seemed to be the only one actually doing something .... piped up and directed me to an area where they have most of their books and magazines.
The first guy ... with a goofy laugh says ... " there ya go ... 2 years here .... I didn't know that".
Off I go to the area where all the books and magazines are .... everything but TOH magazine . I asked another store employee if they sold that magazine .... " hmmm ... umm .... let's see ... ummm ... errr.... I'm not sure"
Meanwhile that haunting phrase .... " Home Depot is a proud supporter of This Old House " was sounding.
Perhaps they were just sold out .... hmmm ... err ... ummm.....I'm not sure.
