As a home owner and Licensed Plumber I frequently work on many projects for myself and others. As a professional craftsman I know the cost of having to make repeated and unnecessary return trips to a supply yard for simple inexpensive parts or pieces.
As such I frequently purchase a few extra bends and elbows when installing plumbing and return them after completion of the project.
Unfortunately I misplaced my Drivers License one day. No problem I have an expired one (The old one), a military ID, a Veterans Administration ID and a social security card in my wallet. Unfortunately for me I needed a current and valid drivers license in order to return anything to the battle creek Menard's.
Sound Crazy? Seriously!!!!
I had to be in contact with the store manager to return $8.43 worth of 1 1/2 PVC fittings. Sound ***??? The same women did this to me 2 weeks to the day later.
The second time I had a little over $12.00 and it took twice as long, like 15 minutes! I make around 43.00/hr as a unionized pipe fitter shouldn't Menard's be now paying me to shop at their store?>
