Home Depot: Free Do-It-Herself Decor Workshop

Sep 28, 2010

Home Depot Improver's Club

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m not the world’s best decorator…ahem. If it weren’t for people like Myra and the Nester inspiring me with their make-it-look-so-easy ways, my white walls would be bare FOREVER.

So, needless to say, when I saw there was a Free Do-It-Herself Decor Workshop coming up at Home Depot, I did a little jig (oh yes, I really did). I need ALL the help I can get!

Best of all, the first 30 attendees get a FREE Project Organizer!

The workshop is this Thursday, September 30th, from 7-8:30 pm, and you can sign up here. See you there?

An Encounter with a Rude Cashier

Sep 27, 2010

It’s happened to all of us. If it hasn’t happened to you yet, then it will.

An encounter with a rude cashier.

It usually happens when you least expect it.  The cashier was so nice to the previous customer.  Little did you know that the cashier has harbored a secret hate for coupons for years.

You casually hide your coupons in your purse until the calculated moment.

You whip out your coupon stash and the cashier rolls her eyes and begins muttering under her breath.

So, it begins.

They scan the coupon.  You hear the dreaded “beep”.

“You have to buy what’s in the picture.”

“You can’t use this coupon on a trial size.”

“You can’t get the item free.”

“We don’t take printable coupons.”

Your face turns red. Your eyes tear up. You stutter and mumble that you can indeed use the coupon.

In the end you take your rejected coupons back, pay for the rest of your purchase, and make a hurried exit.

You stew on the drive home.  You mutter to yourself.

“I should have said this…”

“I should have asked to speak to a manager.”

“I should have spoken up.”

“I will never shop at that store again!”

Perhaps you send an angry email to corporate once you get home.

You read about an awesome cereal deal at that store a few weeks later and your vow never to return fades from your memory….

Has it happened to you yet?
