The Worst Home Depot Ever

My wife and I found the worst Home Depot ever this last weekend. We were out at one of the reservoirs near the city, I forget which one. We planned to swim, but it wasn’t staying as warm as it had been predicted to be. It went back and forth temperature-wise, with the sun coming out from behind and going back behind clouds all day, so we mostly just sat out on a towel on the sand. On the way home, we needed to stop at a Home Depot to get wood glue and spring doorstops to replace the one our devil kitten keeps taking the rubber ends off of. That was our ostensible purpose, but our driving motivation was the hot dog cart outside.

Home Depots always have a hot dog cart outside on the weekend. We’ve been going to them for years in various cities and the hot dog cart is always there. We went to one near the reservoir this time though and were shocked to see no hot dog cart.

There is no way to describe the disappointment we felt.

Not only was a cart not operating, it was clear one was not set up to be there. It was the only Home Depot we’d ever run into that didn’t have a hot dog cart there on the weekend. There was no time to go anywhere else, so we just got the couple items we needed and left. We’ll never go back.

We felt so betrayed.
