has an interesting conversation with Home Depot...

HD: thank you for calling home depot how can i help you?

ME: yes, i need to get a price on fence posts.

HD: what size and kind of fence?

ME: its six foot, and chainlink.

HD: we have eight foot for $11.97 each, or five foot for $7.97 each. so i recomend the eight foot, since your fence is six foot.

(THIS IS IT)

ME: does size matter?

*pause on the other end of the phone*

HD: *doing a nervous laughing and clearing his throat*

ME: (now catching what i said) UGH that didnt come out right, im sorry.. *slight laugh*

HD: its okay ma'am, i know what you ment. but thank you for making my day anyway.

ME: *shaking my head* sure no problem, glad i could help you out as well. *laughing a little bit more*

HD: well to answer your question, yes size matters *chuckles* you dont want your pole to be smaller than your......fence. *laughing*

ME: *now laughing harder* no we cant have that. a smaller pole just wont do the right job i guess.

(BY NOW IM VERY THANKFUL, I DIDNT HAVE TO GIVE MY NAME, AND THANKFUL I DIDNT GO DOWN THERE AND ASK THAT QUESTION IN PERSON)

HD: no ma'am it wouldnt do the proper job if it was to small. *laughing a bit harder on his end now too*

ME: okay well then it seems i need to go with the eight foot if i want the job done right. (tears are now rolling down my cheek)

HD: yes, cus you want it to go in at least two feet. (he could barely speak that sentance he was laughing so hard as well)

ME: two feet sounds good, that way it wont slip out.....of the ground that is.

HD: yes true, you dont want it to ever slip out. (i bet by now his fellow employees were looking at him as if he lost his mind)

ME: well thank you for the prices, and your time. and well for the laughs

HD:*laughing* no problem ma'am. im so glad you called, now i can laugh about this all day if i start having a bad day. thank you for calling home depot

ME: glad i did, and thank you.
