Such a sweet story
The first time I went to Home Depot without my husband was a few years ago. We needed a new Christmas tree stand for our fake tree that my husband had purchased several years earlier during his first marriage, because the one it came with was broken. Of course, it was in the midst of the holiday season and pretty much every stand that may have worked was sold out. I was pretty hopeless, until one of the workers offered to build me on. Was this a thing? Do Home Depot workers actually make stuff for customers? I furiously took photos of the process, walking around the store with the sweet, grandpa-looking man who was helping me as he selected the materials he needed. A half hour – and less than $5 later I had myself a Christmas tree stand – and when I tried to tip him, he politely declined. “It’s my job,” he told me.
I am not the only one who has experienced such great customer service at the hardware superstore. Recently, two employees at one of Home Depot’s Fort Worth, Texas, location went above and beyond for a 2-year-old boy, and the story is beyond beautiful.
