An Open Letter to Home Depot

Dear Home Depot,

I am really beginning to hate you. First, you NEVER have what I need. Ever. Although you are the biggest hardware store in the world, you have squat. Secondly, your help blows. Your "experts" are more often than not a bunch of idiots. I took a PAMPHLET with me for a valve for a sprinkler system, with the part number circled and showed your "expert" what I needed, for Pete's sake. He gave me something that was NOT what I needed. When I said that it was wrong, he treated me like an ignorant female, and evidently one who couldnt read. So, I gave him the benefit of the doubt, after all he was the "expert". Guess what Home Depot? It was the wrong part. I do hope that you enjoyed my husband's little visit to your establishment, with wrong part and pamphlet in hand, and a lack of being amused. Supposedly the "expert" had left for the day, but I know the truth. He was hiding behind the conduit display. A moron AND a coward. Way to go Home Depot, way to go.

Signed,

Obladi Oblada

I used to love Home Depot. But now, it's like the Housing Projects of Hardware. Hey, I kinda like the sound of that...

Home Depot sucks because their corporate management uses Six Sigma! If you've never heard of it, drop to your knees NOW and thank whatever God in which you believe....

Home Depot, Lowes, Menards...they're all the same. Too big to find what you need and NO ONE to help you.

Brooke! OMG I haven't heard Menard's since I went to college in Indiana! "Save big money at Menard's." Holy crap.

I hate them both, but I much prefer Lowe's to Home Depot. The Home Depots around here are dirty and scummy, like the fur of a rat.

Heather- I bet they're just a Midwestern thing. And that's STILL they're slogan! We have a huge "Super" Menards AND a Home Depot across the street from each other were I live...annoying.
