Looking back, it was pretty funny

I had been waiting for a rain-free, warm day to get materials from Lowe's for the closet organizer I designed. The only way to get the plywood home was to have them cut it to size in-store and have it hanging out the back window (which is why it needed to be rain-free and warm). All the planets aligned yesterday and I was excited to get the project started. I asked an employee for help, and he told me that I had to pay for the wood before they could cut it. So I copied down the item number and checked out at the front of the store. Back to the lumber department. I asked another employee for help again, and he told me that the saw was broken, and that I didn't have to pay for the wood in advance. Apparently one of their highly-trained staff had cut through the power cord with the saw.

Yeah, let that one sink in.

Back to the front of the store to the return desk, where I return a purchase made 10 minutes earlier that I never had possession of. I explained to the girl what happened, and she said, "Oh, really? They do that all the time."

God bless capitalism.
