to all the mother's out there in Canada and the States. I know Britain celebrated Mother's Day in March, not sure if anyone else celebrates it today as well?
The kids are coming up as the boys are helping dh hang a 12 foot piece of drywall/plasterboard under the attic stairs. The job is not a long one, it just takes a lot of muscle power. Meanwhile I want to head into the attic and see if I can get a coat of paint on the walls before they come.
We popped out yesterday to pick up more paint as the attic is a big room, so I knew I wouldn't have enough. We went to a DIY store that is Canadian based as that is where I got the original can. Now it wasn't the one I normally go to, infact it was the one close to Hwy 400 and Hwy 7. We were there around 4:30pm and there was one person in the paint department. We stood ages waiting to be served. Dh wanted a couple of other things but couldn't find them, nor could he find anyone to help him.
When paying for the paint I asked the cashier is they had, had all their hours cut and she said yes. So I told her to tell the manager, that due to the lack of staff and not finding what we wanted and not being able to find what we were looking for, we were heading to their competitors Lowes to finish of our shopping.
When we got to Lowes it was busy but at least there were plenty of staff there to help us with our questions. In this day and age customer service is expected and good customer service keeps customers coming back. The other store should remember that!!!
Enjoy your Sunday...
