Landscapades

These days I haven’t really been feeling all that great. A general meh I suppose. Reasons? I have no idea, or maybe I do. In any case, I’ve got Mrs. J and Baby J, so I’m guaranteed at least ten smiles a day.

But once in a while, someone from the outside world (ie: the world outside my home) says something that just makes me crack the hell up…


[Jorge is in Home Depot, talking to one of the employees about topsoil. They’ve talked about how to tackle a particular problem and have moved on to part of the solution…]
Jorge: So, now that I know how to deal with my gravel pit, I guess I should ask you what sort of topsoil I should buy? And how much?
HD Guy: Triple Mix. But honestly? Given the size of your job, I wouldn’t buy any bags from here. It would be cheaper to get it in bulk from a garden center.
Jorge: Seriously? Wow. That’s good to know.
HD Guy: Well, you could get bags from here. Next weekend they are going on sale for ninety-nine cents a bag. That’s dirt cheap, man.
Jorge: It certainly is. Good one, dude.

  3. *giggle* Did he realize he was being punny?

  4. har har!

  5. I’m just amazed that a drone from Home Depot actually suggested, within possible earshot of one of the managers, that you go buy something somewhere else. There’s hope for the universe after all! (oh and the pun was good)
