I am so blond sometimes.

This year, I have three lovely tomato plants.  I'm starting to get green fruit on them and they are so cute!  Anyways, they've been in containers that are entirely too small for them, and I haven't been able to track down cages yet, so they've been leaning and sad.

This morning I called Lowe's to see if they had any in stock.  After 10 minutes of total confusion, it came back that yes, they did have 23 in the size I wanted.  Yippee!  I'm on my way!  But when I got there, I was told that they had been out since yesterday!

So I made sad faces and said I'd keep looking, etc.  The nice man showed me these other ones that are 3x as expensive, but they're all fancy and stuff.  No, I'm poor.  I'm not spending that much on a tomato cage.  He then said that he felt so upset that I'd been misinformed that he would make them magically 2 for 1!  Aww, how nice!  I only need 3.  Well, then, says he, I'll give you all 3 for the $8.00 that one of them costs!  How excellent!  I shall take them immediately!  That's how much one of the crappy ones would have been anyway!

So I'm walking out of the store, so content with my treatment.  And then I look at my receipt.  It says "Home Depot."
