As does our H-T and Lowe's, but I still park at the far end of the lot, to avoid the door digs. Those privileged spots seem to attract careless airheads next to them.

If they put those signs up around here, they'd have to do 90% of the parking lot.

Totally Lowes fault, that cashier they sent to your house did it on purpose

Good for Lowe’s - I’ll have to check and see if our local store has those spaces for veterans.

I always park in those. I don't feel the slightest bit undeserving. But then, I'm still a little red *** about the eggs and rotten fruit thrown at us & name calling when we came home back in 70.

I would hardly call it an "error" Maybe you need to look at the majority of your posts "policing"

My father is a Vietnam Veteran. Thank you for serving and we are glad you made it back home!

I wouldn't park in one of those only because I prefer to park away from anyone else. Also, we have so many veterans in this area, it would probably never be open lol!

I had them send a recommended contractor out to come give me an estimate to do tile in a 576 sq ft kitchen/dining area. They quoted me over $10K, $2K for the tile and $8K for labor. UH,,, no,,, GTFO!!

Two guys were supposed to show up at my house today and I haven't heard a word.

I asked about buying a mini split and having it installed for in my kitchen. At the store I was told that the guy I needed to speak to wasn't in so he would call me Monday, which he did. I asked about the installation he said they have people to do that he just set it all up. I said can you give me an idea how much it will be to install a mini split. He says to me, I can't really, I'll have to defer to the installer, but it could be anywhere between 3,000 to $12,000. I said are we on the same page here? I'm asking about a mini split air conditioner. Well I'll have to let them see the job and they can give you a better idea on price. I said it's an $1,100 air conditioner, surely it isn't $3,000 to install. I just chuckled and said okay I'll wait till Thursday. Well last I checked, today was Thursday.

I don't click on stories in a thread that are just a link, so I would have no idea what story was being told in a thread would I? and I am not sure what you posted above as I don't click links in a thread. If a poster is too lazy to post the actual story in a thread then so be it, kind of stupid to start a post then just paste a link. Maybe you should go Police posters that do that.

Lowes sub-contractors leaves a lot to be desired. Purchased new washer & dryer, wanted them delivered, fully installed, old ones taken away. W&D arrive, two Arab gentlemen arrive, bring in new and then said, "we do not unhook and hook up, only bring, I can tell they didn't want to do anything, like it was beneath them or something.

Well that's not what I paid for............and before it led to an argument, I said, "take them back, will not sign off for delivery.

Later, get a phone call from Lowes manager apologizing all over the place stating, "we have had so many issues with certain minority contractors that they are mandated to hire, this one will be dropped". Next day, two Lowes employees arrived, unhooked, installed new, took old, done within an hour. They too apologized for the previous deliverers, said they were fired.

Those two went out of their way to ensure the install was correct and everything worked. I still received the 10% discount from the get go and for the inconvenience that was caused by the first delivery, they gave me another 10% discount after it was all said and done. For the $1000 purchase, cost me $800.
