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.
