I know I said I’d end this, but it’s getting weirder. Home Depot offered me a $50 gift card for my troubles. Send us your mailing address, they said. I suggested the giant company give that gift card to a local shelter for teenagers in crisis. That, apparently, requires more thought.
- This is Stephanie from Home Depot: “Nice idea. I’ve reached out to my colleagues in Canada to see how we can make that happen. I’ll have an answer to you tomorrow.”
She was pretty quick to offer me the fifty bucks earlier, when I was just a guy with a gripe. Now that the word has spread — and it has spread — it has become more difficult for some reason. She wants to ”reach out to” colleagues in Canada to “see how we can make that happen.” I didn’t think it would be that complicated.
