The Home Depot, Inc. Message Board

    OMG, I almost forgot. We actually went into a Home Depot the other day.

    My helper accidentally smushed a transition metal beyond repair. This was out in the plains a little way, so instead of going back to my store, I sucked it up and got the guts to go into a Home Depot and buy a transition metal. Lo and behold, the metals were mismarked, so I bought the whole lot of them for practically nothing. I think I paid $100 bucks for twenty twelve foot metals. Hilarious. I have a policy that I will buy things in Home Depot as long as they are mismarked, which is more often than you might think. Nobody in the flooring department has a clue, so we have fun buying up stuff for nothing. Recently got four gallon pails of glue for four dollars, seam tape for a buck a roll, etc. It's a fun pastime if we are really, really bored.
