Home Depot Trip
We slowly pushed the heavy cart out to the garden section and I told John to wait with the cart by the entrance while I got a 25 pound bag of top soil on the other side; it seemed like a mile away. I carried the bag all the way back to the cart and was just about to place it in the cart when it split open, dumping out top soil everywhere. I started laughing and John rolled his eyes at me, sighing.
I carried the opened toil soil all the waay back to the soil/compost shelves. dropped it, and got another one. Then I walked all the waay back to the cart. Luckily this one stayed intact.
"Marc, why didn't you just bring the cart over to where the top soil was?" John asked.
He began to turn the cart around to go towards the registers and I blurted out, "I almost forgot! I need plants! But I'm not gonna pay full price! Lemme see what's on clearance!"
I found a store associate watering marigolds and asked her.
"Hi, where are the discounted plants?" I asked.
"No, the really discounted 'on clearance' plants?" I clarified.
John just looked at me and stated "I'm am just so mortified right now." And he walked away.
