Now rex, we're trying to keep Nick from turning into an ass hat any further than he seems to have already. So let's lead by example.

He's wanted to work in construction...he was doomed from the get go. Construction is reserved for those that failed at everything else first.

I like to congratulate all women that look like they might possibly be pregnant....you know, just in case. Don't want to seem rude.

Re: Cars Parking In The Contractor Parking


I just followed a left lane bandit for about 4 miles. They would not move from the passing lane so I do my norm and sit on their asses. I go to pull into lowes and guess where the idiot parks. Yeah right under the canopy! Seems these people just don't give a crap.

Re: Cars Parking In The Contractor Parking


Noticed a HD worker parking in the Pro spot yesterday to go to work, also a girl parked two spaces back from front in regular lot. Not really surprised about it. More than half of what I see working at HD have no business working retail.

There are more than a few of us that drive cars but are still contractors. Really only need the truck for picking up lumber/sheetrock that I under-ordered.

If you have a car, then there is no need to park in the loading area.

Re: Cars Parking In The Contractor Parking


This was not only a discussion about loading areas....it was a discussion about contractor parking. Perhaps at your HD contractor parking is at or near the loading area but not at all of them. At the HD's in my area it is simply a part of the parking lot with a couple signs that say contractor parking, then there is a totally separate loading zone.

Yep, and anyone parking in the loading zone should be shot.
