Drive Through

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.

Driving through the aisles full of expensive building materials was a little nerve-wracking.

    What??

    Do people still have the problem where they park their car right in the middle of the aisle, then get to talking and ignore the other cars that need to get by? So rude.

      Haha! Actually, the van in the picture was parked right in front of the wallboard I was getting, and the driver was nowhere to be seen. There was, however, a cute dog in the van.
