Today I was sent on a mission: I was to go to Home Depot, meet with one of the assistant store managers, and pick up some would that was to be donated to our high school theatre department.
I first arrived and asked for the store manager. The man at the service desk said that he was out on lunch, but would be back in just a few minutes. So I decided that our group would just wait until he got back.
About twenty minutes passed, and he still hadn't returned, so we asked again. This time there was a lady behind the counter, said that he had just left right before we got there and probably wouldn't be back for another twenty minutes.
So we decided again to wait. However, another manager walked by and we explained the situation, and then he came back and said that the person who we were looking for was sent to another store, and wouldn't be back for another two hours.
I was pissed as all I could be. This was supposed to be a charitable donation, and as yet they didn't have anything straight, and kept us waiting for almost an hour. Finally we just decided to return empty-handed.
Is it right that I was pissed or do these things happen on a normal basis?
And all at once the crowd begins to sing: Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same
