    Yeah, and cocaine also!

    A number of vanities in the area contained stashes....at least 3 called the cops, I wonder how many didn't!

    Must be quite an operation going...

    This confirms what I always thought, Cheech & Chong work for Home Depot. In box #2 is officer O' Malley of the FBI.

    I always though that some of the store help was on something.

    I bet the Depot has seen it's fair share of unscupulous characters suddenly remodeling their bathrooms recently.

    Yeah, the big question is how many didn't get returned!

    Home Dept does drug test employees, but you don't have to use to smuggle.

    It is irrellivent since you can't ever find an employee in Home Depot anyway, but if there are any there the joking is going to drive them nuts.

    "Yes, which aisle is the coke on and what is a pound of weed going for?."

    "Do I have to buy a damned cabinet or can I just get the dope in a bag?"

    No kidding. That is a lot of money sitting in those cabinets if it ever hits the street.

    Definitely sounds like a scene out of Cheech and Chong.

    Had to go there to pickup storm drain pipe yesterday. I think maybe our store has something in its cabinets too. They should rename that place Home Sleepo. Got bad pricing from 2 stores. Bad advice from the guy in the plumbing dept. too. Took 45 min. to get my pipe and then another 25 min. to get through the line. There were about 7-10 contractors per register waiting when I left. Sheez.

    complain, complain, complain....fact of the matter is that you were there in the first place, supporting them, rather than your local merchant. If you want them to stand up and take notice, dont support them in the first place. Imagine all those poor drug dealers on the street.....now even THEY have to compete with Home Depot!

    Unfortunately my local retailer is exactly as unknowledgable about the product they sell, and they also happen to be about 15% more expensive.

    I wish that wasn't the case though, it's disappointing to go into a mom and pop True Value and finding out that you know more than they do about a variety of hearth products.

    I understand that the Medellin drug cartel is gearing up to ship coke in pellet bags. The way to tell the difference is the word Primo instead of Premium on the bag.

    It will sell for four dollars a ton less than pellets will next winter.
