Going to HD or Lowe's in the daytime borders on Masochism and going there on the weekend is just an out and out nightmare. If I have to go, I try to go after nine during the week and after midnight on the weekends - this way I avoid the herd of dumbasses that seem to be there all the time. As for the "quality" of the employees, well when HD first opened, they hired tradesman, then promptly screwed them over. Now, the place is filled with retirees and getto kids who don't know one end of a hammer from the other. I know somebody who worked there at one point and quit after a month. They were willing to give him more because he had "experiance". 11 bucks an hour. Would you work for that? When my brother does side jobs, he figures on making at least $250 for four hours worth of work. Me, I lowered my demand at a job interview Tuesday and asked for $17/hr.. Now about getting oddball hardware - am I the only one here with a Grainger, MSC and McMaster Carr all within a 30 minute drive? I guess I'm spoiled living in the industrial Northeast.
