Home and builders store, pretty big and carry lots of wood priducjs. But the whole damn place is hard core Trump and Jebus cultist. Last time I tried to get some hardware and nails, the whole cash register area were standing and bitching about Biden and libs. Strained to walk out, leaving everything, but not saying a word. And like good Jebus folks, lots of fucks and sons of bitches thrown around as adjectives during their ranting. (as a former sailer, fine, but don’t thump a damn Bible at me About morals). Fuck em, give my money to lowes, build will never do Home Depot. Not a lot of choices. But Lowes give Vets 10 percent off everything, everyday.
Thank God I am Poor enough to fit through that needle eye, and no assholes like these greedy old fucks will be on my side of the needle.

For a rich guy, Arthur Blank -- Marcus' partner in Home Depot -- seems a decent man, unlike Marcus. Silent Type Nov 2023 #1
