Damn You Home Depot and More Rambling...

I went to Home Depot on my lunch hour (or two) to buy some stain for my deck. Can you guess what I’ll be doing this weekend? I don’t know why I insist on punishing myself, but you should know that I loathe Home Depot. There is something about that store that gives me the overwhelming urge to use my cart as a battering ram and I can’t quite figure out why. Is it because the store is so cluttered, with 80% of the stuff being located on shelves over my head? Is it because I can find what I’m looking for 80% of the time or could it be that when I ask for assistance, I’m made to feel inferior to the old male chauvinist assisting me? Most likely, it’s a combination of everything I’ve just mentioned, plus the whole self-serve checkout process that doesn’t work 80% of the time and it ends up taking me longer than if I had waited in the cashier line. Why I am punished for wanting to be self-sufficient? To hell with you Home Depot…


The security alarm has been screeching here at work for the past hour and not a single person in authority can figure out how to shut it off. Just a thought, but perhaps someone should consider calling the security company before I make an executive decision and decide to put my foot through the control panel.


It has been so boring here at work lately that I have resorted to reading e-books in order to pass the time. I have found this to be a more constructive time waster and less obvious than blogging, facebooking, tweeting, etc. So far, I have read two books this week! I swore to myself that I would NEVER read the Shopaholic series, but alas – boredom pushed me over the edge – shame on me! As I can’t really read something too thought provoking while I’m “working”, I’m looking for more “fluff” reading material, so please pass your suggestions along. As you can see by my choice of the aforementioned reading material, I’m not a deep thinker (especially while working). *wink* *wink*

If you want some romance mixed with a bloodbath... try the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) series! Light reading indeed, easy to read in bits and pieces so no worries about when you're inevitably interrupted by work. lol!
Home Depot does suck. It always seems like everything I try to buy there has been returned so when I get it it's already been opened and half the pieces are missing. UGH.

Ebooks, those sound good. Are they free?
Cris - That's too funny - I actually just started reading that series and so far, so good. They are perfect for "work".

FG - Guess what? I have to return something to HD that was purchased today - UGH is right.

Some ebooks are free, some can be downloaded for a fee (basically the price of a paperback). I actually have a friend that downloads them for me from one of those "file sharing" websites like Torrent.

I actually don't mind Home Depot but my friend insists that I should become a Lowe's convert.

I like HD's free women's workshops but I always end up with THE dumbest women on the planet in my class. "Could you show us how to use that hammer again?"
