We had the CEO of Home Depot US in our store today.
He liked how clean it was. As we all knew he was coming but were not supposed to know.
He was shocked to learn I was a journeyman plumber and asked how to hire more trades people.
I told him that Home Depot would only get retirees. If he wanted younger trades poeple the wages would need to be competative and full time.
How'd he respond to that?
I don't think he is completely aware of the differences in trades in Canada and the US.
He did ask if that would be the deal breaker. I told him wages play thee largest role in hiring trades. Benefits would could be a compensation for a lower wage.
Completed collecting all intel for CoD BO3 and Advanced Warfare. Continued Skryrim SE, found several of the mods I had installed gone so it was weird when it loaded. Just some texture mods. Couldn't find them in the in game mod store or on Nexus. I guess they were removed for some reason. Heard Skyrim now has Multiplayer. I guess this is through a mod. I haven't looked into it yet.
Looking forward to CoD WW2 next week.
So I'm a bit miffed right now.
Went to the A&W at Queen and Spadina 'cause I wanted a good comfort food burger.
I ordered a Mama Burger Combo with fries and a bottle of water. Total came to $9.2x.
As someone who goes to A&W almost weekly, that's about $3.00 too much, and the price breakdown shows she was adding all items in individually; no combo.
I asked about that, and she said only with a coupon and where's my coupon?
So I bluntly said you don't do combos? Only with a coupon, apparently.
So I left, without getting my burger craving satisfied as I canceled my order. Told them I'd go to a normal A&W that actually does proper combos.
Still cheesed me off though. Should have cost $6.22.
I had a somewhat similar experience but at McDonald's. I got a $25 gift certificate from our work Christmas party.
Well a few days later I went to get a burger. I got a Angus Bacon & Cheddar combo ($9.75) with no issues. This gives me a balance of $15.25.
A week later I went again but this time my balance was $0. I asked to speak with the manager and she couldn't explain it. She said I must have used it up. I had not. I walked out rather pissed off.
I came home and sent an email to McDonald's explaining what happened. No response to date.
