It’s Official. I Prefer My Local Mom-N-Pop Hardware Store.
Last week I picked up a broom from my local hardware store. Unfortunately, it fell apart. Grrrr… So I took it back today and asked for another. The manager took a look at it and checked the other brooms. They all come apart the same way. He was not amused. Apparently it’s a new kind and he was not aware of this…flaw. He took it into the backroom, drilled a hole and put a screw in, which is what the manufacturer should have done but was too cheap to bother. Perfectly good broom now.
I find it VERY unlikely I would get that kind of service at Home Depot. Add that to the fact that the co-founder is a Republican douchebag and, yeah, I’m not going back unless I absolutely have to.
