“Harry” c’mon man!
My wife and I go to “our local hardware place” to pick up a few things and take advantage of the June Sale. The first thing that indicated what kind of experience this was going to be was the Full Parking Lot. A new experience for us, usually there is plenty of parking spaces but not this afternoon. Apparently, everyone in Huntingdon had the same idea as my wife and me.
No surprise when we entered the store and it looked like Black Friday instead of a late June Saturday afternoon. What did surprise me was the 4 women employees working and the 3 men (that I saw) talking and walking around looking busy. Finally, the eldest employee and the only employee out of the 7 inside the store offered to help us. He went out of his way to find a product that was in the back room, a product that was out front, and the hedge trimmers we went there for to start with.
This was less painful than it looked like it was going to be, oops spoke to soon. I forgot to get propane and the hedge trimmers were the wrong ones. That means another trip back to “That local hardware place” on Sunday.
Sunday Fun Day
Wow, this is where is goes down hill very quickly. “Harry” announces on a pass by that if we are the people returning the trimmers to get them at the back of the store. “Harry” didn’t offer to take the pair that was being exchanged or to even show us where in the “back” of the store are the trimmers we wanted are located.
Check out went okay considering we didn’t have the original hedge trimmers we returned, (left back on the shelf by Mr. H’s instructions). The cashier asked us to wait for someone to assist us with the propane. After 10 mins of waiting semi-patiently in the hot ass sun, here struts “Harry” across the parking lot with the full tank and he sits it at my feet while grabbing the empty tank and walking away. Being a disabled man with a cane, I was kind of pissed off that he didn’t even offer to put the tank in the car for me. I guess he assumed my wife would do it. He mumbled while walking away from us that “hey the tank is only 20-30 lbs”.
