Needless to say he was upset that he had to call his mother to come get him at his age, but, you do what you have to do. He was displeased and telling me the route they took to get where they were going. This route would take me through not one but two sketchy areas of the county. I waited for him to take a breath and asked him where he was, not how he got there. He told me and I just agreed to come get him.
I do not argue with angry people. I do not follow directions from people who are only thinking about themselves. I go my own way. This mornings' drama just put a cherry on top of that statement. It took him two hours to get to the job and two minutes to realize he was being used and two seconds for him to decide to walk off.
It took me forty minutes to get to where he was. It took twenty minutes for him to recount the blow by blow of the drama. It took him two seconds to realize I was not on a straight path home. I put the car in park and he asked where we were. I told him I had seen this new store on the way out and was going to go inside so MY day wasn't a total waste.
He was glad I stopped when we got inside and found another tool and appliance supply store. I saw the sign for Northern Tool and Equipment. They have a website at http://www.northerntool.com/. This is not your same old Harbor Freight knockoff store. I appreciate having new business open in this economy and having more than one store to shop. I like having options to weigh when it comes to price and product.
They offer a free catalog. There are 80 locations mostly in the middle of the country and working their way into the south. Their website is easy to navigate. It is not cluttered with a lot of sassy photos or shocking fonts.
This is NOT Harbor Freight and I am glad they came to town. If there is not one in your town, check their web site, get a catalog and look into their shipping calculator, so you get a Complete picture of the cost of your online purchases.
