Chapter 22

I'm too polite.

I was at Home Depot, to buy a sheet of MDF. The customer bin was empty, but there was a whole new shipment in the upper shelves. I asked the aproned attendant for a piece, and he said that when his crew was back from lunch they'd bring them down. Come back in half an hour.

Well, of course, what I should have said was "How about you get your lazy Carolina hillbilly ass on a ladder and bring me down a piece right now?". But I didn't.

Was I polite or cowardly? Probably cowardly. One more thing to hate myself for.
