English Hardware Complaint - Assistance of the unhelpful kind
ALTAVISTA, VIRGINIA -- I recently moved to a new town. I wanted to use the local companies for the things I needed so I went to the local hardware store. I went to get an exhaust fan for over my stove because mine squeaks. The salesman handed me one and swore that it was what I needed. When my friend arrived to help me put it in guess what...it didn't fit. Well anyone can make a mistake right?
Then I needed nails for putting up my aluminum siding that had come down during a storm. They sold me an entire box of roofing nails and promising that it was what I needed. And when my friend came by to help me guess what...it was the wrong product for the job.
Then of course there is the 20.00 sprayer that was a more than poor product that I didn't even need because what I was going to spray came is a spray bottle as well as a concentrate.
Well I guess they saw me coming. But they won't see me comming any more. Now I drive 60 out of my way to go to a store in another town.
