I was a big fan of "Home Improvement" when that show was on television. I could identify with Tim The Tool Man, because I'm just about as fucked-up as he was when it came to performing "projects" around the house. Still, I sometimes do them, whether they turn out right or not.
It's a guy thing.
That's why I like this quote:
His eyes instantly glazed over , he was in full "going to Home Depot" mode. He bought some blower thingy to blow leaves or something in the yard. Muslims have Mecca, Jews and Christian make a pilgrimage to Israel, my husband's Nirvana is Home Depot...He is a charter member of the Most Sacred Church on High of Power Tools, he worships at the altar frequently, and yes, he is faithful about tithing. To hell with 10%, he gives 80%!! So, all is well, kids have school clothes and daddy has a brand new toy!! Damn...I'm good...LOL
(stolen from here.)
I KNOW that look! I get it myself every time I walk into a Home Depot store. That place is testosterone heaven. When I go to Wal-Mart or the grocery story, I know exactly what I want and I buy it, then I get the hell out of there. But I can graze like a cow in a Home Depot.
What causes that? I look at some of those power tools and literally SALIVATE over them, even though I KNOW that if I bought one, I might use it just once and then store it in my garage until I'm dead. Hell, I even consider buying something I ALREADY HAVE when I'm in there. That's a dangerous place.
I've displayed more self-control in a whorehouse, for crying out loud.
I went to a whorehouse once and didn't buy anything. I don't think I've EVER done that at Home Depot.
I never bought anything at a whore house either ,but did rent the hell out of come choice property.
If I go into a Home Store i always seem to end up in either where they keep the machete or the axe. now, i don't believe there's anything wrong with that, although I have been banned from my local B&Q.
yeah, I spent a loy of money on houses and lots in my 'yooth'. And I do rrepresent that gent going into Home Depot. Sweetthing makes me leave the credit cards at home when we go.
I get like that whenever I walk into a gun shop. Home Depot always turns into work for me so I avoid it. I don't mind working that Smith & Wesson Model 500 .50 Magnum at all though. When I shoot at the range, everybody shits their pants. Beats me as to why.
I think "Momisnutz" and I must be married to the same man.
Well, Blondage, that bastard is cheating on all three of us then!
Home Depot ain't chit. Go find a Harbor Freight store in your area. Nirvana.
I do the same thing in Menards.
I think I shoulda been a man.
Home Depot, Lowes, gun shows, hobby shops. All are deadly to my cash flow. Instant addiction. One good aspect though, whatever I buy, regardless of whether I need it or ever use it, is always valued by me. Luckily my toys are not like fashions, so they never become passe', tho I need to oil, grease, or charge batteries on occassion. Or feed it by purchasing another case of ammo, 1000rds.
Oh yeah, I never left an Asian whorehouse without making a purchase.
It's not just a "man's" store. My eyes glaze over, drool runs down my chin and my panties get all wet soon as I hit the parking lot. All those plants I could buy! the paint! I could repaint the inside of my house!. The appliances? That gives me multiple orgasms.
Also Home Depot rocks because they just donated 25 million to Cure Autism Now.
I love Home Depot, especially the lumber area. Something about the smell of freshly sawn wood.....mmmmm.
What makes my eyes glaze over, though, is any automotive store/tire store. I HATE those places. I figure for guys, the equivalent is a fabric store or maybe Hallmark store. Or one of those overly-scented candle & knick-knack places. I don't know any guy (that I truly respect anyway) that actually enjoys spending time in one of those places.
I try to stay outta there. It's worse than drugs. And chain me to a wall if I ever mention visiting Comp USA. I considered applying to work there, but I'd never bring home a paycheck. I'd have a HELLUVA computer setup tho. Last time I went there I ended up with all the stuff I needed to build this AMD64 smoker I'm writing this on. So much for the tax refund. And Home Depot? I have a buncha stuff from there I've only used once or twice. I smile when I look at my workbench & toolbox tho. Makes my eyes cross.
Heh heh heh...
My recent trip to Home Depot brought me the Ryobi BT3100 table saw system I've been salivating over for the last three years.
