Almost 100 years after we finally got the right to vote, and now women can be brain surgeons, lawyers, accountants, astronauts etc, but still when we go in a building supply store we are treated like we are brainless. We can't possibly know what we are looking for or talking about???
Saturday I stopped in at a Building Supply store to get some 3x4 Denshield Tile Backer board. DH was with me but wandering around. The guy behind the counter kept insisting he had work there 5 years, and 1)never heard of it, 2) they don't carry it & 3) I must mean Hardi-Backer.
He remained adamant even after I told him I had 1) bought it there twice before & 2) Found them on the Georgia Pacific website when looking for a local supplier. DH backed me up on this because he was with me when we bought it before. I asked the guy, if I need to go back home and bring back a copy of the receipt with the item number? He then went to look in the computer. Said he found it, but it was only available in 4x8, and again I said no it comes in smaller sheets because we put it in the back of our Ford Expedition. After much back and forth he looked in his computer again and said he found 32"x 48", and I said yes, that would work.
After ringing us up, as he handed me the receipt, he said to me "Next time remember to ask for Denshield - that's what it's called". It took every ounce of strength to not yell back it him "I DID!!!!!"
I went outside and paced around the parking lot while we waited for the warehouse guy to bring it out to the truck.
Is it just me, or do any other Harriet Homeowners have this problem.
