Only time for a quick joke

It is a very busy re-entry into the atmosphere of the labor force this Monday after holiday. So instead of my usual, well thought out, and insightful posts (yeah, right) I only have time to share this joke that was sent recently.

Charlie was fixing a door and found that he needed a new hinge, so he sent his wife Mary to Home Depot. At Home Depot, Mary saw a beautiful bathroom faucet while she was waiting for Walt, (the manager) to finish waiting on a customer. When Walt was finished, Mary asked, 'How much for that faucet?'

Walt replied, 'That's pewter and it costs $300.'

My goodness that sure is a lot Mary exclaimed. Then she proceeded to describe the hinge that Charlie had sent her to buy, and Walt went to the back room to find it.

From the back room Walt yelled, 'Mary, you wanna screw for that hinge?' Mary replied, 'No, but I will for the faucet.'

This is why you can't send a woman to Home Depot..


  1. Why not? That's not a bad barter system, and she would have come home with a $300. faucet.

  2. Hahahahaha....good one! I'm with Mary! ;)

  3. I wouldn't for a faucet, but maybe for a dishwasher...

  4. It would have to be a pretty damn nice faucet.

  5. Diane: Which Home Depot do you go to again? I need to apply there.

    LM and RLL: Glad you liked it.

    WhiskeyM: Kind of depends on how hunky Mr Dishwasher is, huh?

    JJ: Perhaps an entire kitchen?

  6. Reminds me of a time I was in Home Depot getting screws to hang up a shelf.

    The salesman was all flustered saying the word 'screw' in front of me, so then I started giggling and couldn't stop. Once I composed myself he then proceeded to clearly say "the tit" instead of "the tip" and then fell all over himself apologizing for it.

    It was just too much for me to take, so I left the store without getting even a single screw. Frankly, he wasn't my type. ;-)
