  •  Perhaps it's your attitude? (0+ / 0-)

    Forgive me for saying this, but you sound like a jerk with a chip on his/her shoulder. It wouldn't surprise me a bit if people tracked your every move because of it.

    We forgot. Not just MORE Democrats. BETTER Democrats.

      You have demonstrated very clearly a poor ability to read and comprehend. I "sound like a jerk with a chip on my shoulder"?Get a grip.

        a Home Depot store is because there is nobody at Home Depot to follow you around.

        I could walk out of Home Depot with enough stuff to build a new house (I wouldn't but it would be easy).

        Have you ever tried to get service at Home Depot?  An hour at the paint counter...two hours at the cutting table...

        Me and my partner bought a huge roll of carpet at Home Depot about 5 years ago. Both of us are handicapped and cannot move such a monster.  So I asked a person (a big BEAR of a guy) in an orange apron for some help (as their sign in the store says that ANY HD employee will help customers load purchases into their vehicle if they need assistance).  The guy looked at us, said, "Carpet huh?, Not my department.  I'll have someone paged."  Then we waited nearly an hour and noone came so I went back into the store and finally found someone "willing" to help -- 20 minutes later.

        So you aren't followed at HD because they like you better, it's because there is nobody there to follow you.

        •  I can believe that - we stopped going to HD (0+ / 0-)

          nearly 5 years ago , both as a matter of travelling convenience and a commitment to buy at locally owned businesses as much as possible. As much as so many other things have changed in 5 years , no doubt the standard for customer service at HD could have gone from OK to horrible. They were just OK when we shopped there , and we were there often enough at a single store the staff knew us. Others , not quite as good , for sure.
