A Letter of Thanks

Filed Under:

Dear Home Depot,

I’d just like to say thank you for confusing me out of my mind on Saturday. Who knew that when I walked in to find a simple door hinge and dowel, I’d be lectured by “Dwight” (who is always eager to help by the way) for about half an hour? All my group needed were some simple tools to build our mini catapult, and we certainly didn’t need to be laughed at for the fact that we hadn’t done the math before we came to get materials. It’s obviously not our fault if our teacher told us to draw the graphs and make calculations AFTER we had built our catapult. Well, thanks to “Dwight”, we now know about the elasticity of our hands and how it’s different from the strength of a 2″ by 4″ (?) Thank you so much for wasting 30 minutes of my time; I clearly had lots of it this weekend since I had to do 3 projects. Also, maybe tell “Dwight” to be less “helpful” and to stop targeting high school kids that would just like to do their projects in peace.

Another thing that I’d like to point out: It took me ten minutes to find hinges, and another five to find bungee chords. As much as I love this place, I do not like walking around for 10 minutes trying to locate a small object in your 500+ aisles. I get enough exercise, kthxbi. (Okay, that was a lie, I totally don’t get enough exercise, but that’s not the point)

A very annoyed and tired,
