I had Life Skills class yesterday. I’ve decided to do the Home Improvement Unit. First lesson: patching a dent in drywall. I got a piece of drywall, and hammered a bunch of dents into it. Then the kids all took turns patching the dents with joint compound.
I got the drywall from Lowe’s. The lumber yard at this Lowe’s is the kind where you drive your car into it. I’ve never done that, so I was a little confused. There is a register inside the main store where you’re supposed to pay first, then you load your vehicle, then on the way out, someone checks your receipt.
I’m not sure I like it. You have to take pictures of the item numbers or tear of the UPC symbols in order to get charged for the right item. I guess it does save you the trouble of loading things onto a cart, then loading them again into your truck. Maybe it’s a break-even proposition then.
